It’s not time to pack away our boots and pumps as the winter season is still in its conclusive state, nevertheless, it’s not too early to start thinking, or shall I put it in an imaginative way, it’s not too early to start looking at the feet on what nail polish will fit those nails and what shoes will go with them. But what are trends?
The Spring Summer 2023 runways were filled with all things trendy shoes, and now that we’re preparing to put our spring summer 2023 capsule wardrobe together, it’s good to begin to note those trendy pieces that can be injected into it.
I know, you might be thinking trendy pieces can be a waste of money because they only last for one or two seasons and are forgotten, well the good news is that the shoe trends are not far from what we already love, and I’m talking about Wedges, Ballet Flats, thigh high boots, Mary Janes, Fisherman Sandals, etc except some new trends with modern takes that’s worthy of cinderella moment at any occasion.
Despite the fact that wedges have been a cult classic footwear for most of us, the truth is that there was a time no one was talking about them or wearing them, but thanks to Fendi’s spring-summer 2023 runway, that brought back our beloved wedges, they now have new takes thanks to Bottega Veneta’s sculptural iterations, and Dior’s pirate strap take, including the good old classic design we know thanks to Jimmy Choo’s denim version.

Lupita 95 silk-satin wedge mules
This trend is somewhere in between trend and classic, I called it that because though a modern take on heels, its design remained the chunky and wedge heels we know with wavy and slim silhouettes and they are so beautiful with the hope they become the new classic in footwear. It’s an undiluted silhouette that will amp up spring from the soles of your feet.

Mary jane shoes have been around for a while, again it’s another classic that everyone stopped reaching out for until Prada’s spring summer 2023 runway made it the spotlight of the season. The good old school shoes have had new takes from chinky heels, to buckle straps thanks to Versace, Bottega Veneta, Dior, and Sprotmax.

Colour Me Up
The spring summer 2023 runways were filled with all things pastels and neons in the footwear arena, so to keep up with the trend, stock up on these in a variety of colours, thanks to JW Anderson tubular Mules, Proenza Schouler platform mules, Loewe’s floral mules, and Versace pinpoint pumps.

The Peep Toes
The peep toe shoe trend is the type I believe it’s here to stay, another new classic. Not only are the peep-toe shoes sexy, but they are also stylish and comfortable to wear on hot summer days. A chic way to show off your pedicure and thanks to the SS’23 runways, the options are endless.
