WHAT SHOES ARE IN FASHION FOR SPRING SUMMER 2018
Truth to be told I had quite a problem organizing the list of spring summer 2018 shoe trends, as I didn’t know whether I should organize it by type of the shoe, type of the heel, material or simply by the colour. So I decided to do it all. Just to make it more clear. Besides, my spring summer fashion trend report for 2018 is organized in the same way. Ps. In case you missed it check it here.
Whatsoever, before we head on checking the list of the most fashionable shoes of the season, we must have a look at the shoes that are officially out of fashion for spring summer 2018. Oh, I know you love this list.
You know what? Let’s play a little bit. Tick the shoes you think are in fashion for spring summer 2018. Ps. Share your results on Instagram #BSuqadKnows
SHOES THAT ARE OUT OF FASHION FOR SPRING SUMMER 2018
In short, shoes that are out of style for spring summer 2018 are Chelsea boots (wear white booties instead), Adidas flux trainers (wear Nike Cortez or futuristic sneakers instead), skater sneakers (wear New Balance trainers instead).
Furthermore the brogues (coming back in fall; although different), frump pumps (wear stilettos instead). Also out of style that platform sandals with a flat platform. You know, the flatforms. Then thong sandals and flip-flops. Well, don’t look like that, we are wearing luxe pool slides now. Way cooler not to say anything else.
I’m quite sure you totally forgot about open toe shoes seasons ago. Since they haven’t been in fashion for a while. But just in case, mentioning those horrendous shoes here as well. Ps. Forget I said horrendous, in case they come back to fashion for spring summer 2019. Though, I hope they don’t.
Not forget to mention, the ballet pumps, and rose gold shoes. And yes, you read right. 2018 is not a year for ballet pumps either. Whatsoever, I won’t miss ballerinas at all. Not when these shoes are in fashion for spring summer 2018 …
SPRING SUMMER 2018 SHOE TRENDS
Finally, the spring summer 2018 shoe trends report. As said, I made the entire report. Well, at least I’m pretty sure I haven’t missed any shoe trend. But you know, some other minor fashion trend might come up by the end of the summer. The summer will be long. Even though it doesn’t seem so.
Whatsoever, let’s go to the shoe trends finally. So what should we do first? The colours, shapes, materials, type of the shoe, hight of the heel ..? What about the colours first? Just like in my SS 18 fashion report.
By the way, you can shop all the shoes you see in the EDITs – fashion cheat sheet that I add to this post for you to pin, save, print and share with your friends. Simply click on those pink boxes you will see as you scroll down the post. Or find your favorite shoes in the widgets below.
TELL ME THE COLOUR OF YOUR SHOE, AND I TELL YOU HOW FASHIONABLE YOU ARE – SS 2018 COLOR REPORT FOR SHOES
Obviously, the shoe colour report for spring summer 2018 is the same as for the clothes and other accessories. But I put all the colours in one EDIT – fashion cheat sheet this time. You can read more about each colour in SS 18 Fashion Report here.
So what are the top 3 most fashionable colours of your shoes for spring summer?
#1 SORBET COLOURS
You need at least one pair of pastel shoes. Ps. If you can only afford one pair of new shoes in pastel this year, make sure it’s trainers. Although I’m quite sure you won’t be able to say no to those adorable candy sandals either.
Only one word. Wait, two! White mules. You need those. And white ankle boots too. But you probably already have those, don’t you?
#3 BOLD RAINBOW
Pink, blue, violet, lime punch and red shoes are a great choice this year. Ps. Check here to see how I wear red shoes with the red romper. You know the red monochrome outfit.
PLASTIC OR LEATHER? SS 18 MOST FASHIONABLE MATERIALS FOR SHOES
So is it plastic or leather this year? Both actually. But the most fashionable is surely the plastic. Especially when transparent. Also, the canvas is still here somewhere. It’s summer after all. Although, a note to be taken, canvas and raffia are underdogs this year. 2018 is a year of plastic fantastic. About velvet .. we still wear it. Same goes for satin. But we also wear lace this season.
SHOE SILHOUETTE REPORT
ALL THE HEELS THAT ARE IN FASHION FOR SPRING SUMMER 2018
When it comes to the type of heels that are in style for this season, there are few things you need to know. First, how high should your heels be? Or should you get flat shoes only this year? And secondly, what kind of heels should you look for. And no, the question here is not whether you should get a stiletto heel or wedges. Obviously a stiletto. But that’s not the question in the first place. No, it’s about whether your heels should be straight or curvy.
THE HIGHT OF HEELS FOR SS 18
Undoubtedly, the most fashionable heels for spring summer 2018 are kitten heels. I told you, you should toss your ballerinas, remember? Kitten heels are those stylish heels that are easy to walk but give you basically no elevate. Just like ballerinas, but way more fashionable. And more feet-friendly. You did know ballet pumps are bad for your the same way as high heel stilettos, right?
Mentioning the stilettos, ultra high heels are in fashion this season too. Not surprising at all. I mean if we are bringing back the 80s, we can’t forget the stilettos, can we? By the way, have you checked my 80s fashion trend report already? I made a list of all the things you should steal from your mother’s closet. That is if moths haven’t eaten all her clothes already.
Back to this season’s most fashionable shoes. If you simply don’t like heels, there’s good news for you. Flats, apart from ballerinas, are in fashion too. Only extremely ugly this time. Keep reading to see what I mean.
THE TYPE OF HEELS WE ARE WEARING THIS SEASON
Again, there is no question whether you should wear a stiletto or wedges this season. Even though wedges sneakers are back in fashion, these are more or less the only fashionable wedges this season. The star heel of spring summer 2018 is stiletto. Oh and chunky heels too. I almost forgot those.
Well, don’t resent me for this. I simply prefer chic stiletto over chunky. And no, no matter how fashionable they are, you probably won’t see me in chunky sandals this season. Or ever! Nevertheless, I picked my favourites. You can find them below.
Whatsoever, back to the type of heel I wanted to discuss in the first place. Like I said before, the question you should ask your season, is how big curves you want. Ha, no I don’t mean those curves. Even though I guess you will want all your curves extra curvy, this summer.
And yes, those beautiful glittery blue curvy kitten heels from Miu Miu are still on my shopping list. Getting them next month for sure. You know, I have this rule, 3 pairs of shoe per month. And I already filled the quote for May. Omg, and we are not over the 5th yet.
FOR SPRING SUMMER 18 THE TOE OF YOUR SHOE SHOULD BE
Either pointy or square. Yes, square shoe toe is back. Have I mentioned 90s shoe trends are back in fashion too, already? Well, if I haven’t, I’m mentioning it now.
As it goes to the round shoe toe, well sorry to disappoint you, but those are not in fashion anymore. You know what?! I don’t really care about that. Fashion hell no, I’m not giving up my chic black round toe pumps. I mean just look how good they go with my grey plaid oversized blazer and plaid mini skirt (check here if you forgot already).
Truth to be told, pointy shoes can be slightly too much for the mini skirt. Not sure what fashion gods were thinking when setting SS 18 fashion trends. I hope they didn’t think we will wear mini skirts with luxe pool slides. Or did they?
WE WEAR WHAT ON OUR SHOES? SHOES ARE EMBELLISHED FOR 2018
I guess you already figured out that embellished shoes are in fashion for spring 2018 by yourself. Surely you didn’t think I’m getting those Miu Miu pumps only because of the slingbacks and curvy heel, right? No, I’m getting them because of the glitter, too.
Although, it’s not only the glitter that it’s fashionable in your shoes this season. Good news if you are not a glitter fan! So what other options you have? Few as a matter of fact. You can get either buckled shoes, glitter shoes, studded shoes, gem shoes or feathered shoes. Yes, we wear fathers on our shoes too.
IT SHOE TRENDS FOR SPRING SUMMER 2018
The list of all spring summer 2018 shoe trends is anything but short. I just realized that now. I have been writing this blog post for quite some time now, and I haven’t even shared the IT shoe trends of the season. Don’t worry, I’m getting there now. So keep reading. Especially if you want to see my shoe shopping list. Ps. Waiting for you at the end, just above the espadrilles. Oh, yes, I’m answering your question if espadrilles are in fashion for 2018 at the end as well.
Now to the IT shoe trends for SS 2018. Here are the top 5 shoe trends you must remember this year.
#1 WHITE SHOES
Good news, as long as your shoes are white. They are in fashion. That is still in fashion. More about this in a bit. Now have a look at my favourite white shoes.
#2 KITTEN HEELS
Already mentioned this trend before, but mentioning again because this shoe trend is really big this season. And it will stay for longer than you think.
Kitten heels and slingbacks, do we hear Chanel pumps? Yes, we do! But we also love all those slingbacks with higher heels.
#4 FUTURISTIC TRAINERS
Don’t get wrong, futuristic trainers and dad sneakers are not the same thing. Futuristic trainers are even uglier than ugly dad sneakers.
#5 SOCKS AND SANDALS
I already wrote about this trend over here. Yes, this trend has been here for a few months now. And no, we don’t wear it in the same way anymore. Don’t worry, I will show you exactly how to pull off this trend when the temperatures go up, soon. As soon as I get these cool sheer socks. Ps. You should get them now too. Believe me, it will be really hard to get them later.
SPRING 2018 IT SHOE TRENDS
Continuing with the list of my favourite spring shoe trends. Well, not only spring shoe trends as we will wear all those shoes in summer too. Especially when it gets cold or when it rains.
#1 TRANSPARENT SHOES
Starting with my favourite shoe trend, the plastic transparent shoes. I guess I don’t need to say much here as you have seen me wearing my Gianvito Rossi transparent shoes so many times since I got them. Check all the ways I wear them over here.
#2 80s STILLETO
Wait, did I say plastic shoes was my number one of my favourite fashion spring summer 2018 shoe trends? Ups, I said it too soon. I like this trend even more. Ps. Be sure to read more about this trend over here.
#3 DAD SNEAKERS
I guess I should add this trend to the list of shoe trends that are still in fashion (ps. find it at the end of this blog post). But as I actually don’t have my pair of ugly Nike sneakers yet, I’m adding it here. Besides, this fashion trend is only becoming super trendy now.
And yes, ugly dad sneakers are the second shoes I got this month. By the way, can you guess what the 3rd pair is? I told you I get 3 pairs per month. Comment below!
#4 HIGH HEEL MULES
In short, best when in white. Although those from Aquazzura are must have too. Even the brown mules from Stuart Weitzman. They give this kind of Western feel, don’t they? Go here to see how I wear my white mules.
#5 WESTERN BOOTS
Mentioning the Western, cowboy boots are another big thing this season. Yes, Western boots are so in fashion for spring 2018. And no, not only the brown cowboy boots. Truth to be told, I would advise you to get any other western boots but brown. That is if you want to wear them for summer too. Check my favourites in the widget below.
SUMMER 2018 SHOE TRENDS
Don’t get me wrong, those trends above will still be in fashion for spring 2018. And we will wear these trends below in spring already too. Well, when it doesn’t rain or we are not at work. You know what I mean. No matter how fashionable and luxurious they are, that pool slides are not for office. Or any other workplace actually. Well, unless you are a fashion blogger or fashion editor of course.
#1 LUXE POOL SLIDES
Even though this shoe trend is not the easiest to pull off. Especially if you live in the city. I’m so excited for luxe pool slides. Can you guess why? No, not because I would be a huge fan. Wait, actually I am. But doesn’t matter now. It’s because this means we are finally, yes finally, saying goodbye to those horrendous flipflops and thong sandals. No, not a fan of those either.
#2 90s NAKED SHOES
Meet your new favourite sandals. Strappy sandals are so in style for spring summer 2018. The rule is only one! The thinner the straps, the better!
#3 BLOCK HEEL SANDALS
In case you are so over the 90s strappy sandals, then go for chunky block heel sandals instead. Here are my favourites. Although can’t say you will see me wearing those. You know I’m more a stiletto kind of gal.
#4 HIGH SHINE SHOES
On the other hand, you will definitely see me wearing the high shine shoes. These will match my vinyl pants perfectly, don’t you think? Although truth to be told, I will probably wear it with that stunning blue lace dress I just got. Check my Instagram to see the dress. And shop my favourite high shine shoes in the widget below. Which one will you get first?
#5 PASTEL SHOES
To match your ice cream.
YES, THESE SHOES ARE STILL IN STYLE FOR SPRING SUMMER 2018
Ps. In case you are broke like most of my squad. Well not surprised to hear that. After all, my shopping list for spring summer 2018 (over here) was pretty long. Plus I keep posting new things you simply can’t resist of shopping. Anyway, in case you can’t even afford one pair of shoes then just make sure you walk around in these 4 shoes.
#1 EMBELLISHED MULES
I’m still wearing my black studded flat mules. Or slippers. Ps. Still, don’t know how to name them. Anyway, remember those chic mules I wore here and here. And here. Well, I’m not tossing them yet. So expect to see me in those chic embellished mules this season too. Yet mostly in the evening. Oh yes, that is one thing that is different when it comes to slippers in 2018. We wear them instead of party pumps this year.
#2 METALLIC SHOES
Wait, don’t say you didn’t know those were in fashion at all. Yes, metallic shoes have been around since last fall. Or even before. And we still love them. Oh, and yes, you can wear your metallic rose gold sandals. As long as they are metallic. Nevertheless, we prefer gold over silver this season. Just because it goes better with the tan of course.
#3 SOCK SNEAKERS
I guess this trend is only coming live now.
#4 SIMPLE SNEAKERS
Not a fan of chunky futuristic sneaker or sock sneakers? No worries, your pretty simple sneakers are still good to go. As long as they pastel or white. Because white is still in.
#5 WHITE SHOES
I probably don’t even need to say that the white shoes are favourite shoes of fashionistas all over the globe. I mean you already know this as you keep seeing white shoes on Instagram. Including mine. By the way, are you following me already? Be sure to follow me @veronikalipar. You do want to find out what shoes on this list I got first, right?
Oh, the list of all the shoes that are in style for spring summer 2018. It’s below here. As promised.
SPRING SUMMER SHOE SHOPPING LIST – THE LIST OF SPRING SUMMER 2018 MOST FASHIONABLE SHOES
Finally, my shoe shopping list with all spring summer 2018 shoe trends. To make sure you don’t shop the wrong shoes this season. Warnings, the list is long. Ps. You can shop all the things in the list simply by clicking on the pink boxes. Yes, I hid shoes under the text too. Click on the text to see my favourite shoes. Can you guess what shoes I hid before clicking on it? A little hint, I chose the shoes from the galleries above.
ARE ESPADRILLES IN STYLE FOR 2018?
Surely, espadrilles always find their way back each year. Honestly, I don’t see why, as you can’t really wear them in the city. Unless you are being a tourist in Rome or in Athens. Or discovering old towns by the seaside.
Whatsoever, yes, you can find espadrilles on my spring summer 2018 shoe shopping list, too. Flat espadrilles to be exact. Because the wedge espadrilles didn’t have that luck in 2018.
Regardless the annual come back, this doesn’t make wedged espadrilles fashionable for 2018. You know what I mean? So if you are hoping I will say your wedged espadrilles you bought a few years ago, are still in fashion, I must disappoint you. And say NO! Sadly, the wedged espadrilles are not in fashion for spring summer 2018. Well unless they are actually slingback wedged espadrilles. In this case, there is still hope.
Although I do hope you swap espadrilles for any other fashionable sandals this year. Still, if your summer isn’t perfect without canvas on your feet, then get these.
