The Must-Have Shoe of the Season And How to Wear It
They might be low to the ground but they are the height of style this season. The shoe of the moment is a flat with an open back and closed toe, known as a slipper or mule.
This trend has been gathering momentum for some time now. It started in the fall of 2015 with Gucci’s ‘Princetown’ slipper lined in kangaroo fur. The shoe was such a hit, the luxury label has been reissuing the style each season since, giving it cult status and igniting the trend for slipper mules.
It’s not difficult to see why this particular style of shoes are popular. There is the obvious flat factor – your feet will be rejoicing for a low heeled shoe that actually looks chic and comfortable. The slip on and off ease is great for travelling – particularly going through airport security and accommodating any swelling your feet might experience during a flight.
This hit footwear also seem to come in a wide range of materials, which means you can essentially find a pair for almost any occasion. Try the black patent leather or the brogues or any with leather tassels with tailored trousers for the office. Brocades and glittering embellishment could work for evening or special events like summer weddings (a typical lengthy function where your feet begs for flat shoes.)
