The Shoe Trend Only It-Girls Know About

Classic shoes are winning for two major reasons: They’re seasonless with the ability to anchor almost any outfit and we’re able to justify splurging on account of them being an “investment piece”. While we’re inclined to be a bit more spendy on timeless items, we do still source inspiration from the street-style circuit and one of the biggest trends is round-toe ballet-inspired footwear. Ranging from true fashion-girl iterations (starting with the high-contrast Miu Miu silhouette) to streamlined takes, the latest wave of classic-chic riffs involve ballerina ribbons, dainty ankle ties and grommet-adorned leather. And while the look is innately feminine, the latest offerings imbue far more cool-factor when paired with cropped denim and the latest of-the-moment bag. Here, 12 ways to get in on the trend that’s entirely It-girl approved.
