Trend Watch #4
(note: all pieces featured in this entry is from topshop)
Shoes have received their acknowledgement a bit late in the 90s that they’re very important accessories (in fact, they now have a category of their own call Shoes) that complete the look. Following the 60s vintage look, wedge heels (not platforms) are back with a vengeance. You can find them in low wedges and killer heels. Normally with ankle strap that coves the heels, bare around the metatarsals, and covered around the toes with an occasional peek-toe hole. The best are those in skin colour or vintage colour (looks old) like dark turquoise or brownish red. If you have sweaty feet, it’s best you stick with the peek-toe variations.
Cone heel peek toe heels in earth tones.
Again colours. Green low wedges with strappy details around the toes, very hippie cool.
Grey mary jane courts. Better without straps though.
Wooden clogs will always have a spot in my fashion book. White straps go great with tan skin.
Meanwhile, ballet flats are still awesomely cool – thanks to Prada and the French. Don’t get me wrong, they’re sweet but only if you have slim never-ending legs.
Green suedette with cut out details around the toes. Nice and practical – for your toes to breath.
Gold ankle ties pumps for the extra touch. Slick slim ankles only please.
Unfortunately, ankle boots are still a hit. Especially the ugly ones. Personally I don’t see how these boots complements the female legs. Even girls can’t carry it off nicely. They were meant to stay in the Victorian times when men wore it with their leggings and looked silly. But if you’re a self confessed fashion slave/whore/victim, then this is a must-have. It’s the hit of the season from last season.
