Summer is in full swing. Our boots collect dust in our wardrobes as we strut through the season in our coolest, airiest, trendiest summer-style footwear. Like every year, there are shoes that rule the roost. Here are the 2022 shoe trends – with summer in mind.
Platform Heels The nineties have made an appearance with platform heels. They’re much easier to wear than stilettos, and they have an air of nostalgia about them – think Carrie Bradshaw and the Spice Girls.
Wedges Another alternative to traditional stilettos, wedges offer height and comfort. They have a classic summer vibe, and can easily add a touch of whimsy to any look.
Ballet Flats On the other side of the spectrum, ballet flats have made a huge comeback. These shoes are incredibly versatile thanks to their varying styles. For a more feminine feel, look for flats with embellishments, and for a more toned-down look, try pointed-toe flats that are neutral in color.
Metallics Much like the sun, you’ll be shining in your metallics this summer. They’re an easy way to upstyle any look and can easily transition from day to night.
Mary Janes Cutesy and classic, Mary Janes are a staple in fashion. The block heel makes them a comfortable option for summer, and an easy way to add a whimsical flair to any outfit.
Clogs Yes, clogs. Featured in Versace, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga catalogs, clogs have made a comeback and are here to stay. They pair best with androgynous looks, namely wide-leg pants and linen trousers.
