With being at home quickly becoming the new normal, you may have traded your beloved shoe collection to a one-item staple, slippers. This has got to change, especially as lockdown starts to lift slightly! When we decide to leave the comfort of our homes and return to whatever the outside world will bring, you will need a collection of new footwear to wear immediately – and no, not your old dusty trainers!
So, let’s paint those toe-nails as you hit up these gorgeous 2020 shoe trends – even if for now, you are only going to wear them for the gram.
A new take on a classic
Posh flip-flops! Who knew that a shoe as classic as this would be made over? I suppose it is 2020 – the year where anything can happen. This reinvented shoe is the polar-opposite of swimming pool vibes. With a variety of different variations from the simple toe-thonged design to multiple straps, toe-strapped, flat or heeled, this classic shoe has got it all, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Oh, and they’re so comfy too!
Forget about jewellery and instead get some shoellery
Chunky gold chains have made a comeback this year however, a necklace is just not enough. From sandals to pumps to boots, chain straps are all over 2020 shoe trends. So, you don’t need to find an anklet this year, just dazzle your feet in chain strapped shoes. Perfect for adding some sparkle to your summer shoe collection!
Out with the old and in with the new, shoe
Stiff, boyish loafers have had an upgrade and been replaced with a new wave of loafers. From chunky squared heels to slingback styles, this timeless classic has finally had a well-deserved makeover. Upgrading your cute top and jeans look has never been so simple.
All about the logos
I think I speak for us all when I say that we all love a designer shoe and 2020 has been no stranger to the rise of obnoxious yet luxurious, big logos being thrust all over shoes. Whether it be a Chanel slider or a Dior canvas shoe, these shoes are the epitome of high fashion and I am living for it! Don’t think my bank account is though – oops!
The summer boots
Don’t think for a second that boots are just for the colder months, as boots dressed up or down with a dress or skirt make a fabulous summer statement. Whether it be a classic ankle boot or a more daring, over-the-knee boot, summer 2020 has got it all. Summer boots don’t need to be boring, so brighten up your summer boot wardrobe with shades of brown and oranges to upgrade your neutral ensembles, blues and greens to add a soft touch of colour to your wardrobe or go all out with red and yellow boots. The colour mix-ups are endless!
Chunky yet comfy
Wave goodbye to kitten heels (finally) and say hello to the return of the chunky platform heel. Offering a height boost and still being stylish, perfect for when we can all start returning to normal. Chunky shoes are going to be everywhere, whether they’re sandals, mules or boots – so embrace the platformed lifestyle. Short girls, your prayers have been answered.
All tied up
Say hello to 2020’s ultimate sandal trend, the gladiator sandal. Enriched in rope for a chic flat to wear at all times. Yes, we do recommend these can be worn if you are working from home! If you want to be even bolder, lace the sandals around the bottom of your trousers/jeans for the ultimate catwalk, risk-taking look. Take it from us, you need a pair of these sandals in your summer 2020 wardrobe!
With all this shoe madness, there’s an extra reason to want lockdown to end. We suppose Instagram will have to do… For now!
