Shoe Trends to Wear in 2022
It’s been impossible to miss Versace’s three-inch double platforms since their Autumn/Winter 2021 debut – as much for their Instagram omnipresence as their spectacularly eye-catching style. With just the right amount of Bratz doll-inspired nostalgia, striking a perfect note for now, it’s no surprise that stacked shoes have taken the fashion set by storm. Lift your look with even more towering pairs from the likes of Loewe Paula’s Ibiza, Amina Muaddi and beyond.
Neon Party Heels
Brighter-than-bright dressing continues to lead our post-lockdown style – so much so, that we’re taking the mood from head to foot. Mach & Mach sparked our appetite for bold colours and embellishment with its rainbow array of party heels – and, this season, it joins others in neon territory with highlighter hues across the board, from hot pinks to hazard-sign yellows and acid greens.
An It-girl shoe if ever there was one, mules have entered statement territory atop a host of sculptural heels. A signature at The Attico, cylindrical and triangular block shapes bring a fresh, modern edge to the backless classic. Meanwhile, Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson broke the internet with strappy sandals balanced upon everyday objects – cracked eggs, lavender soap bars, red roses and more.
Retro Kitten Heels
Though sometimes considered the Marmite of the shoe world, kitten heels have slowly but surely cemented their place among fashion’s most coveted styles, thanks to designer endorsements from Dior and Louis Vuitton to Gucci and beyond. This season, it’s all about a sophisticated slingback and a sharp, pointed toe – expertly executed by Miu Miu in the form of patent penny loafers.
