Strappy ladies flats have always been a classic choice. Since this style is very versatile, it never really goes out of fashion. However, it certainly wasn’t the hottest shoe trend over the past few years. This year, the strappy style is back with a bang with more sophisticated designs. Also, let’s not forget that this particular style goes perfectly with all sorts of dresses and formal wear out there, so you really won’t have to struggle with matching it with any outfit.
Ankle strap sandals
We don’t hide our love for ankle straps. In 2022, we are talking about more than just trends and beauty as far as footwear is concerned. Comfort and convenience are certainly two factors that everyone is looking forward to and your party footwear can’t get more trendy and comfortable than ankle strap sandals. Since the style works for most seasons, you won’t need to store them in your wardrobe for the rest of the year.
Moreover, ankle strap sandals come in multiple styles including block heels, pencil heels, stiletto heels, and the list goes on. Hence, regardless of the occasion, you always have plenty of choices at your disposal.
Heeled Thong Sandals
The early 90’s and 00’s trends have been making a major comeback over the past 2-3 years. Another fashion staple based on the 90’s style that we are going to be seeing this spring/summer are heeled thong sandals. The slim and sleek design of these ladies sandals makes them the ideal minimalist footwear whilst being super trendy and stylish.
Since the silhouette of heeled thong sandals gives them the barely-there effect, these tend to pair flawlessly with both formal and casual outfits. If you keep up with the trends, you must’ve seen multiple designers send heeled thong sandals down the runways paired with loose trousers and tailored suits.
Pointed slingbacks have been a hot shoe trend in 2021 and we are taking this trend with us into 2022. The best part about pointed slingback shoes is that they are super easy to pair with all sorts of outfits. Whether you plan to wear a summery dress, a formal suit, or a pair of t-shirt and jeans, you can simply switch into pointed slingbacks without having to worry about whether the style goes with your outfit or not.
Pointed slingbacks come in both styles – heels, and flats. If you are not a heel person then you can opt for comfortable flats. On the other hand, if you want to add a more stylish and chic factor to your attire, then flat pointed slingbacks are the appropriate choice for you.
Another shoe style we would be looking at a lot this year are heels with a bow. Regardless of the color you choose, you simply can’t go wrong with statement heels. Since this year the trend is more inclined towards minimalist fashion, you can stick to bow heels that feature delicate and minimal decorative embellishments. The specialty of this shoe style is that it can be worn on a variety of formal and casual occasions. For instance, a minimalist bow heel can be paired with a formal suit. On the other hand, it can also be paired with your favorite top and pants for a casual dinner with your friends. Lastly, these also pair up with festive outfits flawlessly. You always have the choice to choose a fancy bow heel shoe with a little more bling if you love a pop of sparkle.
It’s never too late to step out of your comfort zone and try new shoe trends. Who knows, you might actually end up liking the new style yourself. If you have never tried these shoe styles in the past, then now might be the right time to do so.
