The previous couple of seasons have actually been a golden era of basic simple shoes– block-heel mules, shower slides, and unadorned sandals. It’s hard to find any fashion labels that hasn’t taken a page from the style playbook of Maryam Nassir Zadeh, the ruling queen of trendy minimalist shoes. However recently, another trend has actually been emerging on the runway and red carpet and it’s basically the polar reverse of “less is more.”
Rhinestones, fur, feathers, pom-poms, pearls, crystals, tassels, and fringe– no decoration is too much for the shoes we’re seeing on the runway of spring summer 2017. When it comes to colorways, the soft colors we have actually grown to are replaced by the bright colors or hues such as fuchsia, golden metallic and electrical blues.
Miu Miu may be the one to blame for starting this over embellished shoe trend with their colorful, faux fur decorated, studded spring collection. But it was followed by many other high fashion labels. Today at Fendi Haute Couture fall 2017 show, Karl Lagerfeld endorsed the trend once again by sending bright colored flower or fur decorated mules down the runway, featuring pointy toe, intricate golden anklets and shimmering shine of velvet.
Embellished shoes might be appealing to be reserved for unique celebrations. The truth is that in most cases, they look simply as excellent– if not much better– paired with your go-to denims and a tee.
