We almost did not get to celebrate the fun outdoors of a 2020 summer good people! Can someone say “Hello Summer 2020 - Lockdown Level 1 Edition?” :)
Yes, we can!!
Now that lockdown restrictions have eased a bit and we can all go out (safely, of course), why not start your new post-Covid shoe’drobe ;)
IT IS THE PERFECT TIME
For all of you who want to know what summer shoes are in style this season, we have just the right trends tailored to match that unmatched personality ;).
SHOES IN FASHION FOR SUMMER 2020
Before we start, let’s get one thing out of the way… In ALL fairness and honesty to the self, narrowing down shoes for just ONE season is close to an Alice in Wonderland spiral-conundrum-of-sorts, right? So we hope our selection of these staple pieces will qualify your summer step.
1. ORANGE, YELLOW AND RED
I don’t know about you, but there is something about making these sunny shades a part of your wardrobe. These are definitely voted our top most stylish colours for those summer 2020 shoes. If you ask me, a pair of red pumps is an investment no matter the fashion trends. For one, red pumps are SO CONVENIENT. They effortlessly make every outfit deliscious. Secondly, they give you that badass feeling with a touch of next-level-confidence.
Let’s talk about these orange hues! You can’t even be mad! Orange is literally next-level tan. You cannot go wrong with it. I have never known orange to disappoint, especially Jeffrey Campbell’s collection of orange/tan shoes.
Now let’s talk about those yellow shoes :). Nothing screams summer like any item on your body in yellow. Even a person’s personality shines through the yellow. The colour greets you first, it is quirky, fun, gracefully loud and eye-catching.
Gold and Metallic
Do we really need to go into the semantics of why having a gold and metallic shoe is a must? We will always stress the importance of going from daytime to nighttime without lifting a pinky. These babies just somehow always manage to do the talking for you - with the constant mask-wearing, these are the kind of wingmen you need. Don’t say we didn’t tell you. You are welcome.
Pastel Shoes, Glitter and Shimmer Shoes
We’ve all heard the little saying that goes “leave a little sparkle wherever you go” and of course, the words of famous designer Marc Jacobs “colour is the finishing touch on everything”. These babies are here to serve exactly what these quotes say. No matter the outfit, no matter the occasion, they are here for your success - yesss girl!
Only one word. Wait, two! White strappy sandals - okay, maybe 3 (LOL). Let’s all agree that the sun hits differently in an outfit completed by a white shoe, yes!!!
Earthy Tan and neutral shoes
Tan shoes are to men in chinos, what they are to a woman in an effortless summer outfit with a lovely huge straw hat. There is nothing you cannot pair with tan shoes. Tan shoes are a wardrobe staple like a simple jersey or cardigan. They add a sweet and subtle perk to the outfit. Especially for those summer lunches you find yourself in limbo about attending, these work the silent magic.
Pink and Two Tone Shoes
Floral and Polka dot shoes
Polka dots and florals are back in style. In fact, these prints are the IT prints in 2020. Let’s celebrate them for including shoes to this remarkable comeback =D
So is it plastic or leather this year? Both actually. Especially the mock croc and knotted leather. Raffia is everywhere this year!!! How can you NOT want to be one with the crew?? Avoid fomo and do the right thing :)
THE MOST STYLISH SHOE SILHOUETTES 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? Are you just sticking to flats this year or playing around with your options?
Secondly, what kind of heels are you leaning towards this year? 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. So scratch the questions and take the suggestion - haha - it is for your best interest at heart, I swear by it! :)
THE HEIGHT OF HEELS FOR SS20
Undoubtedly, the most fashionable heels for summer 2020 are chunky 70’s heels and kitten heels. I mean, even loafers and thong sandals are rocking the mid-high heel look this season. It is all there for you :)
Okay, in all fairness we will still rock those stiletto heels because you cannot just trash the look - it is timeless, so we cannot discredit the style. So, you will definitely be seeing us wearing these stiletto heels this summer.
If we really had to point out the number one most trendy shoe for summer 2020, it would have to be a platform-style shoe. Forget not the square toe platform shoes with chunky heels!!!!
THE TOE OF YOUR SHOE SHOULD BE...
Square. Yes, square shoe toe is still in style. If you already bought a pair, you’re welcome :). If not, again we say avoid fomo!
ALMOND TOE SHOES WE LOVE
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 too, don’t they?
SANDALS WITH TOE RINGS AND ANKLE TIES
If you are a flat slides kind of girl over the thong sandals with kitten heels, here is an alternative for you. They are leather sandals with toe rings - amazing? I think so! Toe rings took the pressure off for some us that never came around getting actual toe rings to wear with our sandals.
Now for the Merah Vodianova Ophelia sandals. There’s something about those ankle grazers hey?? Undeniable in loose fitting jeans.
T-bar’s have been counted back this summer. Dancing nights out just got soooooo much better :)
Really, espadrilles sandals in style for 2020?
Yes! Yes! Yes! Espadrilles sandals are definitely in style for 2020. Espadrilles always find their way back. Here’s a selection of a few espadrille styles from our Popa range, you can’t not have a pair
So this is it. All the shoe trends for summer 2020. Be sure to check out all of our new styles on the website.
Ps. Make sure you get a fashionable swimsuit to swim in the pool of shoe boxes on time.
WE HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL…
KEEP SHOPPING WITH US AND HAVE A GREAT SAFE SUMMER :)
