April 23, 2021

These current shoe trends are here to inspire you on how to style up day-to-day outfits for summertime. Remember it's better to invest in pieces you actually gonna wear over and over and not necessarily on trends you don't like too much.


In the past couple of months, the platform shoe has been coming back. The platform trend can be interpreted in many different ways: a flat platform, a heeled platform e.t.c Style them with mini skirts, dresses, shorts, plaid trousers to add some pizzazz to a more casual look. Versace had quite the notable pairs coming in fresh spring colorways adorned with chunky chains. For a retro Bratz doll vibe, wear them with white ankle socks, a cute mini skirt, a cropped top, and a shoulder bag.
