According to Vogue Crocs might be making a comeback, as well as a lot of feathers, see-through boots and trends we saw in 2017 like embellishments and embroidery, a continuation of autumn’s biker boots, and lace up sandals. Between all the clashing and out-there trends, sometimes it’s a little overwhelming to take those styles from the catwalk and adapt them to the high street. We’ve broken down the spring/summer 2018 footwear trends for you, though, so you don’t have to. Here’s how to inject some catwalk fashion into your day-to-day shoe collection. |
Sportswear 2018 will see the rise of athleisure. Look good in sportswear without actually breaking a sweat. The likes of Louis Vuitton and the Fendi x Puma collaboration saw a rise in sport inspired footwear on the catwalk. The Fenty x Puma collaboration introduces flip flop style strappy heels and platform, bright orange trainers. It’s definitely about time you swapped out those black pair of running trainers for something with a bit more flare. Choose colourful trainers for your run and invest in a pair of thick-soled flip flops from the likes of Nike, Adidas or even Puma.
Day Time Your style of day time footwear really depends on the kind of person you are. With the outlook for spring and summer in the UK always teasing anything from a light drizzle to full on showers, it’s probably for the best to have a back up to your pair of sandals. Pick up an always trusty pair of ankle boots in a combat design, trainers or flats and get money off your wardrobe additions using Discount Promo Codes for New Look and Miss Selfridge. Bring them into 2018 with 2017’s embroidery trend but kick it up a gear. Gone are demure, simple floral patterns embroidered on your suede boots. Find a pair covered from the heel to the toe in glitter, or stray away from brown and black leathers for pastel hues and sequined embellishments.
Beachwear Last year was all about those subtle, colourful pom-pom additions to lace up, gladiator sandals. Now enjoy the comfort of a bed of feathers beneath your feet. Giambattista Valli is definitely all about the textures this year. According to Cosmopolitan, your strappy pair of sandals should also have a very key feature this year – the big toe strap. If you’re not brave enough to rock the features, the big toe strapped sandals in a block colour could be the more muted decision this spring/summer.
Occasionwear Who doesn’t love a pair of heels? High end fashion certainly does and there’s a lot of fun to be had in your party shoes this season. With glitter and sequins in an abundance, choose from the classic strappy design to clear Lucite heels. Platform heels will be your saving grace this year, offering those heights on skyscraper legs without the pain. For your inner rock chick, studs are also making a comeback in their spikey masses.
Wet Weather There were a lot of see-through panels and plastic textures showcased on the spring/summer 2018 catwalks, so what better way to incorporate this trend than in your wet weather attire? Buy clear wellington boots and be the epitome of high end fashion even on the muddy dog walks. Tick off the key trends and incorporate them into your footwear collection this year. The high street will be overflowing with them, so it won’t be difficult to keep current as you walk into spring and summer.
