Latest ladies shoe trends to look out for this season.
In Irish fashion news we take a look at shoes trends all women should now about. We all love a good pair of shoes. They are comfortable, classy and can bring your entire outfit together instantly.
But before you go out and buy another pair for your growing wardrobe, it’s helpful to know what shoe styles will be big this year. And as always, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading for our picks of the top shoe trends you need in your 2022 wardrobe.
If you are looking to make a statement with your sandals this year, do it with jewels. Sandals are an essential shoe for a lot of people’s wardrobes. And while casual shoes and heels are classic choices, sandals can be just as glamourous. Particularly jewelled ones.
Since jewelled sandals make their own statement, you should keep the rest of your outfit simple with neutral colours. This will make your shoes stand out and be the focal point of your outfit.
Additionally, you should try to make sure that the colour of your sandals appears at least once throughout your outfit.
This will help bring your look together and can be something as simple as a jacket, bracelet or purse. Another way to tie your entire look together is to be aware of the shape of your jewelled sandals. For example, if they are rounded at the top, wear some hoop earrings to highlight that shape.
And we don’t need to tell you that comfortable shoes are a must. Pick the wrong pair of jewelled sandals and it can ruin not just your outfit, but your feet as well.
If you do not know what Mary Janes shoes, they are flat, ballerina shoes with a strap across the foot. And while they once were associated with schoolgirls, they have since evolved into a stylish shoe worthy of our modern wardrobe.
Whether you have a grunge style, like wearing preppy clothes, love the rockabilly aesthetic or are more of a glitter party person, there is a Mary Jane shoe out there that fits your personal style.
As some of these shoes have a thick heel, they work well with bootcut jeans or something with a straight fit. If you wear thick shoes with tight fitting clothes, you can make your feet look bigger than they are.
If you are wearing any flared jeans or ones wide at the calves, stick to Mar Janes with a thick heel. This will help you maintain some balance and harmony in your outfit.
And speaking of Mary Janes with heels, they are the perfect shoe for your dresses and skirts. If you are petite and want to make your frame look longer, wear your Mary Janes with a pencil skirt.
You might have seen that kitten heels have made their fashion comeback recently. So, it is no surprise that we are now seeing slingback shoes all over the place.
Undoubtedly, this is partly due to the resurgence on all things 90s and 00s. While colours like black and white are common for slingback shoes in 2022, you can sometimes find colour blocked and monochrome ones as well.
And although we are used to seeing pointy slingback shoes, you can find ones in a rounded style for a more comfortable fit.
One of the best things about your slingback shoes is that they are preppy, elegant and always make a statement.
However, as they have a minimalistic style, they are versatile and go with everything. You can pair them with a midi skirt for a sophisticated outfit or as a way to bring some fun to your basic jeans. And slingback shoes and culottes are always an interesting contrast.
But, if you are thinking that you can pair your slingback shoes with maxi style dresses, you might want to reconsider. The length of these clothes works better with heels or flats.
If you are looking to bring a touch of glamour into your 2022 wardrobe, slingback shoes are the way to go. And they are also the perfect choice if you want to wear something comfortable but still want to rock a heel.
There is one major thing that you need to know about loafers. As well as being one of the most versatile shoes you own, they are able to take you from day to night. Whether you are looking for a sophisticated shoe to wear to work, or just something comfortable when running errands, loafers have got you and your feet covered.
So, bring some edge to these chic shoes in 2022 by wearing them with some leather trousers. Leather is always a big fashion trend and your shoes will ensure you stay comfortable.
While black leather can bring too much attention due to the shiny nature of the material, you can go with white or beige trousers instead.
And, if leather is not your thing, you can never go wrong with some skinny jeans. It is a great and easy look that makes you look stylish and cosy. If you happen to be on the petite side, choosing trousers with a high waist can make your figure look taller and leaner.
But you do not have to stick to trousers when wearing your loafers. They work just as well with your dresses and skirts. Midi dress is a chic option if you do not want to show off your legs and, like all your other dresses, they come in many designs, patterns and prints.
Do you often find yourself eyeing a pair of colourful shoes but are not sure on how to style them? Don’t worry, we’ve got a few ideas to help you out.
Okay, pairing colourful shoes with your outfit does require some thinking and planning. But it is not as hard as some people might think. And your bright shoes might be just the thing to inject some personality into your outfit.
One of the easiest ways to wear your bright shoes is to keep the rest of your outfit neutral. So, jeans and a simple top in black, white or beige will work. They can carry your bright shoes without overwhelming your look.
Or you can go head to toe with a monochrome look. It instantly makes your shoes stand out and your overall outfit looks chic and sophisticated.
If you are wondering the best way to do this, you can choose to match the colour of your shoes with a colour in your outfit. You can start with your shoes and choose a print that has a matching colour in it. The print will do all the work for you with tying your look together.
All Sorts Of Boots
Seriously, who doesn’t love a good pair of boots? They look classy, are easy to style and extremely versatile. Dress them up or down, your boots are the perfect choice to keep your feet warm on cold days.
And, much like your clothing, there are plenty of styles of boots to choose from this year. So, you are bound to find the perfect ones to go with your wardrobe.
And one of the easiest boots to try this year is the classic Chelsea boot. When it comes to styling them, there are plenty of ways to incorporate them into your outfit.
Although black leather boots or those with an exaggerated heel work best for muddy hikes, there are ways to make them look super chic.
Pair them with super sleek tailoring, like a stark white wrap coat in a wool and cashmere blend, a sharp suit or even simple denim. These tough looking boots will look right at home with any outfit you wear.
And while you might think that ankle boots only work for your autumn or winter wardrobes, you can wear them at any time of year. Like your Chelsea boots, they work with anything, from skirts, to dresses to denim to formalwear.
They will elevate any look where you might have been tempted to throw on some trainers. When it comes to your ankle boots, there are some things to keep in mind.
First, there are a lot of different styles and they might not all work with every outfit. There are ones that are tighter around the ankle and ones that are looser. So, like with anything fashion, get out there and experiment to find your perfect pair.
Some Helpful Tips For Finding Your Perfect Shoes
Much like you have clothes that suit your personal style, the same should go for your shoes. Go with ones that reflect your personality and what type of person you are.
Also, you should think about what lifestyle you have when it comes to choosing your perfect pair of shoes. Are you on your feet all day? You might want to go with something comfortable and supportive. There is no point in having shoes in your wardrobe if you are not going to wear them.
And just because shoes look super stylish and are trendy, this doesn’t mean that they are the right ones for you.
Especially if they are not comfortable to wear or do not go with the rest of your wardrobe. To ensure that you can wear your shoes with everything, keep them in a neutral colour. This will allow you to play around with different patterns and colours with your clothing.
