WHAT SHOES ARE IN FASHION FOR SUMMER 2020?

So what shoes are in fashion for summer 2020? Even though the thong sandals, Mary Janes and cap toe pumps are still in fashion, I can’t say we won’t be walking around in new shoes this season. There are new shoes in town. And omg, I love them all. Well, not all, in the same way, I mean, it will take some time before you will see me walking around in heeled loafers and new gladiators. But I simply adore macrame pumps.

Anyway, I can’t really put all the 2020 summer shoe trends in one paragraph and described them with only a few words. And no, not only because there are too many fashionable shoes out there. But because you deserve a proper description with all the links so you can shop your new pair of shoes while reading this blog post. So here we go – scrolling down to summer 2020 shoe trend report.

SUMMER 2020 SHOE TRENDS

Finally, the summer 2020 shoe trend 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, another minor fashion trend might walk down the street come the end of summer 2020. Just like did the minimal sandals seasons ago. Remember the street style from Copenhagen fashion week? I’m sure you haven’t forgotten already. I mean, how could you? Copenhagen AW20 street style brought back the thong sandals, which are by the way, still in style, but you can easily ignore them.

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 AW20/21 shoe trend report.

By the way, you can shop all the shoes you see in this post simply by clicking on each pair. Once you click on the shoes, a link will take you to the store where I found them.

COLOURS FOR SHOES IN SUMMER 2020

Obviously, the shoe colour report for summer 2020 is the same as for the clothes and other accessories. But some colours are more fashionable for 2020 summer shoes than others.

#1 ORANGE, YELLOW AND RED

The sunny shades are number one most stylish colours for summer 2020 shoes. Well, if you ask me, a pair of red pumps (see/shop my favourite pair) is an investment no matter the fashion trends. For one, red pumps make every outfit pop, for two, they give you that badass feeling that makes you feel confident all day long.

 

 

Still, a pair of orange pumps, and even more, a pair of orange sandals make a great alternative to red pumps. Especially these orange shoes in the widget below.

 

 

No matter how chic and stylish red and orange shoes are, there are no fancier spring summer shoes than a pair of yellow shoes. Browse through the gallery below to see my favourite SS20 yellow shoes.

 

 

#2 GOLD AND METALLIC

 

 

#3 PASTEL SHOES

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 the sneakers. Although I’m quite sure you won’t be able to say no to those adorable candy sandals either.

 

 

#4 GLITTER AND SHIMMER SHOES

 

 

#5 WHITE

Only one word. Wait, two! White mules. You need those. And a pair of white slouchy boots or white over the knee boots, too. Yes, for summer 2020. But you probably already have those, don’t you? You already bought them after reading my fall winter shoe trend report, right?

Anyway, these are some of the must-have white shoes for summer 2020.

 

 

You can find more white shoes in the summer 2020 shoe shopping list at the end of this post.

#6 EARTHY, TAN AND NEUTRAL SHOES

 

 

#7 PINK SHOES

 

 

#8 TWO-TONE SHOES

What can I say; degrade and cap toe shoes are still in style.

 

 

#9 FLORAL SHOES

 

 

#10 POLKA DOT SHOES

Polka dots are back in style. In fact, polka dot print is the IT print in 2020. Even for the shoes!

 

PLASTIC OR LEATHER? SS20 MOST FASHIONABLE MATERIALS FOR SHOES

So is it plastic or leather this year? Both actually. Especially the mock croc and knotted leather. But the most fashionable materials for summer 2020 shoes is raffia. Indeed, raffia is everywhere this year.

 

 

Other fashionable materials for SS20 shoes are also canvas and satin. Yes, satin. Although, a note to be taken, plastic and satin are underdogs this year. 2020 is a year of raffia.

 

 

By the way, macrame shoes are also fashionable in 2020.

THE MOST STYLISH SHOE SILHOUETTES FOR SUMMER 2020

ALL THE HEELS THAT ARE IN FASHION FOR SUMMER 2020

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 chunky heels. Because it’s obviously chunky heels.

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 SS20

Undoubtedly, the most fashionable heels for summer 2020 are chunky 70s heels and kitten heels. So the mid-high heels. Even the loafers and thong sandals come with mid-high heels this season.

 

 

Nevertheless, flats are fashionable this season too. Yes, ballet flats are back for summer 2020. I told you, you should get a pair of square toe ballerinas, remember the last trend report? It’s still true.

For summer 2020 shop for ballet flats with an ankle strap as well.

 

 

Other fashionable flats for summer 2020 are also the flat espadrilles and the new gladiators. I don’t like the last ones but never say never. It’s still long till the end of summer 2020.

THE TYPE OF HEELS YOU SHOULD BE WEARING IN SS20

Again, there is no question whether you should wear a stiletto or chunky heels this season. The star heels of summer 2020 are chunky 70s heels.

 

 

Well, truth to be told, I still prefer stiletto heels. You will see me wearing these stiletto heels this summer.

 

 

Ps. I made sure there is at least one thing on each of these stiletto pumps and stiletto sandals that makes them look fashionable. It’s all in the details.

Mentioning the details, later on, you will find the list of details that make any shoe fashionable in summer 2020. Well, every shoe apart from the shoes that are on the list of shoes that are out of style.

Whatsoever, back to the type of heel I wanted to discuss in the first place. Like I said before, the question you should ask yourself this season, is how big curves do you want. Ha, no I don’t mean those curves. Even though I guess you will want all your curves extra curvy, this summer.

It’s the curves of the heels I’m referring to. Curvy, geometrical heels are somehow still in style. You can thank Cult Gaia for that.

 

 

PLATFORMS

Back to the 70s shoe styles. It’s not just the chunky heel that we need to mention in this shoe trend report. It’s the platform shoes as well.

 

 

Truth to be told if we had to point out the number one the most fashionable shoe of summer 2020; it would have to be platform shoe. Surely, square toe platform shoes with chunky heels would be the top of the top the most stylish shoes, but all the platform shoes are in style for summer 2020.

Here are more platform shoes to buy for summer 2020.

 

 

FOR SUMMER 2020 THE TOE OF YOUR SHOE SHOULD BE

Square. Yes, square shoe toe is still in style. If you already bought a pair of by Far square toe minimal sandals, here are some other square toe shoes to shop for summer 2020.

MUST HAVE SS20 SQUARE TOE SHOES

 

 

Almond toe shoes are in style for summer 2020, too.

ALMOND TOE SHOES I LIKE

 

 

THONG SANDALS

Not the flip flops though. Yes, there is a difference between SS20 thong sandals and classic plastic flip flops. Summer 2020 fashionable thong sandals are mainly made of leather and come with kitten heels. They actually look chic, don’t they?

Shop my favourite thong sandals.

 

 

SANDALS WITH TOE RINGS

Well, if you prefer flat slides over the thong sandals with kitten heels, here is an alternative for you. No, not the plastic flip flops, but leather sandals with toe rings. Yes, toe rings are still in style in 2020. I guess there is still some space on Instagram for toe ring sandals in 2020.

 

 

MORE DETAILS TO SHOP FOR

ANKLE TIES

I love Merah Vodianova Ophelia sandals (see/shop here). But, you also need these summer shoes that tie around the ankle. Ps. One of the biggest 2020 styling trends is wearing espadrilles laced over the pants at the ankle.

 

 

STRAP ACROSS THE INSTEP

 

 

T-BAR

T-bar is also fashionable for summer 2020.

 

 

WE WEAR WHAT ON OUR SHOES? IT SHOE DECOR FOR 2020 IS …

Surely, you know that already. I guess you already figured out that embellished shoes are still in fashion for summer 2020 by yourself. After all, you have seen many shoes adorned with crystals and anklets while scrolling down to this paragraph.

Although, it’s not only the crystals, glitter, and anklets that are fashionable for shoes this season.

Good news if you are not a glitter fan! There are more shoe accessories to choose from this season. You can also choose from feathers, chain, T-strap, and bows.
