We love to revisit series we watched in school, openly and shamelessly post songs we used to listen to on the sly in stories, and imitate the hairstyles of childhood idols in adulthood - life, including fashion, is cyclical. True, the spring-summer 2022 season demonstrated that designers had already missed recent trends, instead turning to earlier decades. All of the recent season's trends - unusual heels, clogs, futuristic and hypertrophied forms - will soon be back on store shelves.Add to that platforms from zero, which rattle in every second collection. The tractor sole is finally giving way to the classic one, and white will become the new black, along with a number of other colors that claim a place in the basic wardrobe. Wearing a boring, but still irreplaceable, black or gray trouser suit with white shoes, as seen in the collections of Jil Sander, Coperni, Proenza Schouler, and Balenciaga, is the best way to refresh it. Such a simple contrast play will make you fall in love with other bright colors, such as red, lavender, or Yves Klein blue. In practice, you'll notice that your red Simone Rocha ballerinas or futuristic Christian Dior boots with neon stripes are just as versatile as your black boots.
Many designers demonstrate that shoes can be the most eloquent detail of an outfit. For example, Rochas' Charles de Vilmorin recently released red patent leather boots with a massive shaft. Or Donatella Versace and Lanvin's Bruno Sialelli and Danielle Del Core, who joined her at New York Fashion Week, insist on wearing Mary Janes with a very high wedge or platform.Consider Richard Quinn's soft lavender booties or the Ottolinger and Chet Lo sandals that resemble a snake or an alien lizard. Over-the-knee boots are acceptable to wear not only by pop stars, but also by the rest of us, and for no reason. Do you remember how everyone went crazy for geometric-shaped heels and objects resembling perfume bottle caps? Jonathan Anderson took it a step further, displaying Loewe sandals as if they were standing on a detailed rose, a jar of nail polish as if it were on a shelf in a beauty salon, and even a broken egg.While everyone is wondering how to adapt all this to their wardrobe, we answer - these models have a place both on the red carpet and dance floors, and in the office (paired with the same trouser suit). Such shoes will make friends even with a basic wardrobe, and most importantly, they will cheer you up every time you wear them.
For those who do not like to joke, the new collections also have something to profit from. For starters, branded sneakers will no longer be frowned upon (there were a few exceptions in recent seasons, but they were few) - especially in collections like Miu Miu's (who collaborated with New Balance) or Lanvin, which feature unusual but universal colors. Second, with the light touch of Mucci Prada and Raf Simons, pointed-toe slingbacks will become an absolute must-have for all occasions. Third, classic-shaped boots with stable heels, which are popular this season, will not go out of style.Cossacks should not be taken too seriously - the cowboy theme has become a major source of inspiration for Acne Studios' Jonny Johansson and Knwls' Charlotte Knowles and Alexander Arceno.
Remember that a holiday without a reason is the current trend, so feel free to use your wardrobe as a form of self-expression or color therapy.
