All fashionistas and in general people who are at least a little worried about their appearance are interested in the question, what are the popular trends in the summer of 2017 now? And it's not just about clothes. You can pick the perfect bow, but spoil everything with such a significant detail as shoes. Today, some trends can be clearly identified on the world fashion scene. After the shows in London, we see that femininity and tenderness, although they did not give up their positions, are already inferior to experiments and even aggressiveness. The craving for convenience, extravagance and trends borrowed from the past does not disappear anywhere.
1. Brightness and color combination
Let's face it, this summer is clearly not a good fit for restraint and muted colors. Yes, pastel shades are not entirely out of fashion, but many designers successfully overlap and set them off with richer, more vibrant colors. Combinations of red, yellow and blue are especially desirable. It's no secret that these colors are the top of the spring-summer 2017 season. White and black are also added to them. At the other extreme is the entire gamut of metallic shades. Silver, gold, copper, various impurities are all incredibly popular, especially in shoes and accessories. So avoid dullness, leave restraint in the cold - in the summer you need to shine.
2. Sports sandals
Hybridity and mixing of styles are in great demand right now. Designers try to combine the incompatible in order to better shade many trends and styles. While athletic sandals are not entirely new, rather, they are a reworking of a trend from the 90s, when such shoes were really at the peak of popularity. Now it is difficult to overestimate its convenience. Given that the street style is constantly evolving, these sandals fit denim and even oversized dresses like never before. All sports shoes for women for the summer of 2017 are somewhat massive, but keep in mind that raising the foot is undesirable here. But a platform and a lot of fasteners will do.
3. Pointed toe
A dull and chunky toe is now just a blatant example of unfashionable shoes. If you want to look elegant and stylish this summer, then you simply need shoes with a pointed toe. A neat cut and harmonious combination with any heel height (and even without it, a direct example is ballet flats), the possibility of choosing a model with an open heel and a see-through pattern is a great option for this season. Pointed toe can be combined with street style, jeans and T-shirts, as well as with an exquisite floor-length dress.
If you have already seen girls on the street who seemed to rush out to a store near the house in slippers, but at the same time they walk around shopping malls and offices - everything is in order, these are grandmothers. Perhaps one of the most demanded trends in summer shoes 2017. Perhaps this excitement appeared after pajama and lingerie style became a part of summer trends. And from them and a stone's throw to indoor glamorous slippers. In fact, the decorations and styles are different from home shoes. Grannies are more sophisticated, but their simplicity and convenience are captivating. Stylists boldly wear them even to a strict suit, thereby diluting the degree of officialdom.
5. Mules with heels
Feminine and classic heeled mules are a great option for summer office fashion if you are puzzled over what to choose over hot shoes. Open heel, instep, stylish colors - it's all just made for the season. Designers suggest choosing models that are not too high in the summer of 2017, without a sharp rise. It is possible with a closed toe. Metallic or shiny accents will come in handy, as will pastel colors. But bright models are also appropriate.
6. Sandals on the platform
It is not a wedge heel, not a sharp transition, but the most uniform shoe base. You can play with styles, colors and textures, but this point should remain key. Moreover, the higher the platform, the more trendy you are.Women's models of summer shoes 2017 in this segment often have many ties and weaves, even ribbons can be used as them. By the way, amber can also perfectly diversify the image.
7. Unusual heel
This season, designers are trying to highlight some kind of bright accent in shoes that can completely update even the most boring and hackneyed style. For example, they create crazy heels in all colors, sizes and shapes. Of course, we understand that the podium is one thing, and another thing is to walk down the street in shoes, where instead of heels, say, spheres. But the experiment takes place, for example, in a non-uniform form, expansion at the base, and so on.
8. Sandals with a bow
A very feminine, elegant and delicate trend. A ribbon bow, airy and weightless, will add flair and sophistication to the whole image. An ideal and simple option for sundresses, skirts, dresses. Even somewhat old-fashioned sandals or just boring summer shoes can be diluted with such a noticeable accent. The size of the bow and all its types depend only on your tastes. It can be either a small accessory like a brooch or a full-fledged bow made of ribbons that are used as fasteners. Naturally, this accent is best combined with pastel, white shades.
Another strange, but not devoid of attractiveness trend. Perhaps for you crocs are shoes that you would hardly wear even in the country, walking between the beds, but fashion is relentless and bizarre. Today, glamorous crocs models are combined with strict bows, classic pants, skirts, jeans and anything else. They are decorated with stones and rhinestones, shiny rivets and silk ribbons, produced in fashionable shades of the season. If such shoes seem too incomprehensible for you, then we advise you to purchase them at least for a beach holiday.
10. Transparent heel
As you can already understand, designers and fashion designers give great attention to the heel. They create whimsical shapes and details. For example, another option for fashionistas is a transparent heel. More democratic and restrained in comparison with the unusual form, but still eye-catching and unusual. At the same time, it is important that the heel itself is stable, massive and wide. This is the only way to create the impression of a certain deck that supports the entire model.
11. Sandals with a T-strap
Interesting and small detail, but it can completely change your image. Such "thongs" are not only beautiful, they can visually reduce the volume of the leg, make it slimmer and lengthen, even if you are not very tall. The central bridge can be either thick or thin, almost invisible. You can often see models where instead of it there is a chain, a ribbon, a plate. The main thing is that you feel comfortable.
12. Transparent top
If you're tired of the heel accent, here's a variation on transparency. Designers don't want to give up on this trend so easily. They like it when shoes are weightless and invisible on their feet, which is facilitated by partial or even complete transparency. To somehow decorate it, shiny accessories, stones, inserts are added. All this looks pretty summer-like, but the practicality of the shoe is controversial.
Even last year, the abundance of lacing was considered something radical and unpleasant. This year, the designers have returned their affection for laces and ribbons again. For a long time we have not seen those very shoes and sandals whose lacing reaches almost to the knee. But, they are with us again. You can equally well wind your tape around your ankle. The main thing is that the lacing is somewhere on summer shoes and refreshes your bow.
14. Small heel
Fortunately, modern women of fashion are less and less sacrificing health and comfort for style. Designers also try to combine their ideas with convenience. The greatest suffering, of course, comes from the high heel. So, this summer, low rises are entering the trend. The Kitten Heels style is a combination of simplicity, elegance and sophistication.The elongated heel and the minimum rise make the leg slim, visually remove volume and fullness, if there are such problems. In addition, if you are tall, then stiletto heels are a real problem for you, but "cat heels" will be just right.
15. Metallic shoes
Along with the fashionable colors of the spring-summer 2017 season, metallic shades are knocked out in the lead. You can choose shoes that are absolutely silver or gold, or with elements of these shades, but you definitely can't go wrong. Silver is more practical than white and pastel. It is brighter, more elegant. By adding it, you will no longer just be in a summer sundress, but will be able to have a complete and unusual bow for the evening.
Shoe trends for summer 2017 are really unusual, bright and distinctive. They are able to decorate any, even the simplest image. So take inspiration and experiment.
