After taking a look at what styles and trends made it onto the runways and the streets, we’ve created a list of six distinctive shoe trends that are no doubt gonna take over this year.
You can say goodbye to dad sneakers and say hello to statement trainers à la Gucci’s rhinestone strapped trainers. It’s also time to start following your animal instincts with bold animal-print shoes. Read on to see what made the list, and then start adding your favorites selects to your shopping cart to get the look.
- Western boots
Cowboy boots have been around for a couple of seasons now, but there’s a new mash-up style that’s gaining traction. We’re noticing a lot of ’80s influence in the details, accents, and silhouettes.
How to Style: Break up a pastel monochrome ensemble with a pair of lived-in cowboy boots.
- Statement trainers
It’s time to toss aside your dad sneakers and say hello to their sparkly cousin: the statement trainer. Gucci started the trend with is über-cool crystal-strapped kicks and other designers have followed suit.
How to Style: Don’t be afraid to style your rhinestone-encrusted kicks with gym shorts and a Hawaiian-print shirt.
- Embellished heels
Embellished heels no longer just mean crystals and rhinestones. This year, we’re expanding our options to unique details like seashells, beads, and wooden spheres.
How to Style: Forget wearing statement-making earrings: we’re zooming in on decorative heels.
- Sporty sandals
It may be 2019, but the ’90s are still playing a huge role in the trends we’re seeing in the fashion industry. We personally can’t wait to dust off our flatforms and Teva-inspired sandals.
How to Style: Wear the comfy platform sandals with an all-black ensemble for a sleek monochromatic look.
- Animal print
Animal prints are considered neutrals for a reason. From snakeskin to cheetah, we’re channeling our animal instincts by trying out an array of mules, tall boots, and ankle boots in these bold prints.
How to Style: Style a sultry long-sleeved midi dress with a pair of tall snakeskin-print boots.
- Strappy sandals
Sure, strappy sandals have been around for years, but we’re seeing a more sleek look taking over. Think super-thin straps that come in minimalist designs. These modern sandals will instantly elevate even a simple pair of jeans.
How to Style: Style a pair with a crisp button-down and black jeans or opt for a girlier option with a tank top and polka-dot skirt.
