What Are 2018’s Biggest Footwear Trends?
A huge trend sweeping Instagram at the moment is anything with lots of straps. Whether they have functions or not – it’s irrelevant in the world of fashion! A great example of this is knee high or over the knee boots with laces or straps travelling from the ankle to the top of the leg. This style is popular as it has the effect of elongating the leg. For an extra lengthening effect, choose a cone or stiletto heel. For a more toned down look, try a pair of classic black lace up boots.
Another big trend is ribbon-laced footwear. This is the perfect trend for any DIY-ers out there as you can apply this trend to your existing lace up footwear collection. Most fabric stores will have a ribbon section where you can choose the length and colour of ribbon for your new laces. These DIY lace shoes are a perfect option if you want to colour coordinate your laces to your outfit! It is also possible to lace boots in this way too, so you can add a little personality to your look all year round.
Lastly, you should definitely look out for suede lace ups or imitation suede lace ups this season. You will be seeing a lot of this material within the next few months – from bags to coats and accessories to footwear. This retro looking material is making a come-back in a big way for 2018 – you heard it here first!
