Shoe Trends-to-Know 2017
We recently learned from the shoe guru about what we can expect to see in stores in the coming months and which styles she’s loving in particular. 

MULES + SLIDES

Cool girls everywhere have adopted the mule trend. The slip and go style offers a sense of effortlessness. Worn in flats or heels, closed or open toes – this go-to style can easily be worn from day-to-night and transcend from spring/summer through the fall. 

DETAILS: FUR TRIM, FEATHERS AND PEARLS

There’s an eye for the details in the coming seasons. Everything from fur-trimmed looks to feather and pearl accents. These statement-making frills call for a bold take on classic silhouettes.  

KITTEN HEELS

The newest ‘it’ style, our grandmother’s favorite heel has made a comeback! Understated yet chic, the kitten heel offers a sense of sophistication (think classic old-school pumps) without sacrificing wearability. 

SNEAKERS

If there’s one shoe silhouette that’s reigned supreme the past few seasons, it’s the sneaker style. Typically seen in an all-white colorway, the look is still dominating. From low to high tops, slip on to lace ups, this comfort staple is here to stay. 

BOOTIES

Now a classic, booties are still holding strong. A style that easily transcends through the seasons, booties are here to stay. From flats to heels, open toes to lace-up’s – there’s a bootie look for everyone.
