There is a small revolution happening in the world of shoes: Designers are finally making shoes that are truly beautiful but are also wearable. This is particularly true with the summer 2017 collections. Here are the six most important trends in summer shoes.
This summer is all about the ankle. Designers are using this style to emphasize the ankle and create drama in the shoe. You can opt for a flat to keep it comfortable or go with a heel for a dressier look. If you find the wrap-around versions too high maintenance, there are many variations with buckles and zips. But beware — some styles of ankle straps have a tendency to break the leg’s natural silhouette. Be sure to consult a full-length mirror to confirm that your ankle strap shoe compliments your summer ensemble.
Finally, a platform you can walk in! You’ll get the height of a platform with the comfort of a flat with these shoes that are perfect for all of your summer events, especially ones on grass. No more embarrassing moments of getting your stilettos stuck in the mud!
The kitten heel offers height while remaining sophisticated, understated and, best of all, comfortable.
We can now embrace this cool, comfortable shoe all year long. Designers are offering boots in lightweight fabrics, colors and prints, so don’t be afraid to work these boots into your summer wardrobe.
One of the most dominant trends this season is the mule. Best of all, they’re as easy to wear as they are comfortable — just slip them on and go. Pick one that is right for your foot and offers enough support. You wouldn’t want to slide out of your slide!
Don’t pack your stilettos away just yet because designers are showing amazing statement heels this season. While they may not be as comfortable as the other styles, sometimes feeling sexy makes it worth it!
