Paige foresees lookalikes at all price points emerge in this year. You may have seen the Mavis boot on the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whitely, and this cult item is sure to inspire footwear collections throughout the year, she says. The original is mostly sold out, but others are already churning out similar pairs. There's a pointy-toed croc style courtesy of Staud's Pre-Fall 2020 collection, plus more wallet-friendly options for those not spending on a Huntington-Whiteley budget.
The it-shoe of the winter is the knee-high boot," says Erica Russo, Bloomingdale's vice Golden Goose Sale president and fashion director. "It's been awhile since the style has been front and center, and it's a great investment piece you can have for years to come." The knee-high has been a sleeper style in the wake of the ankle bootie, but the '70s silhouette is back with a vengeance. "This silhouette has been out of fashion for so long that its return is exciting, with brands like Paris Texas really upping the fashion stakes with their fun takes," says Ida Petersson of Browns.
Picking out your wedding shoes can be as important to the bride as the dress itself. There are endless options, from classic satin pumps in ivory or cream, pointed-toe slingbacks decked in lace, or even delicate pearl or diamante embellished heels. The irony is, however, that beneath the long trains, layers of ruching, and floor-length hems of most bridal dresses, the beautiful and carefully selected shoes often end up hidden away.
Katrantzou shared how happy she was that Lizzo chose to walk the red carpet in another one of her designs on Instagram. In a post featuring a photo of Lizzo wearing her custom gown, the designer wrote, "Queen @lizzobeeating attends the @naacpimageawards tonight wearing custom #marykatrantzou Styling by @brettalannelson Thank you for trusting me."
dresses, oversized knits, and shrunken sweater vests were paired with iconic derby oxfords from Prada and signature Chanel slingbacks. All the footwear is still available for purchase on The RealReal. We Golden Goose Sneakers hope seeing resale on the runway will inspire designers and shoppers to find their own creative ways to embrace circular fashion, says Sasha Skoda, head of women's at The RealReal.
Since the modern bride tends to change her wedding look-there's a dress for the ceremony, reception, and sometimes even the afterparty-these outfit changes can call for new footwear too. Call it revolutionary, or maybe it's simply an era when practical fashion outweighs tradition, but brides today are swapping out pretty party shoes for something unexpected and much more casual: the wedding sneaker. Whether you're hiding a pair under your gown, or showing them off with an accompanying afterparty frock, a sneaker can, in fact, be wedding appropriate. Take it from Vogue's own beauty editor, Jenna Rennert, who swapped a pair of 3-inch bedazzled heels at Golden Goose Mid Star one in the morning for a pair of custom Nike Blazers, that she matched with her new husband. The two comfortably danced the night away, a major relief after a whole day of running around between wedding festivities-plus, they paired perfectly with her wispy feathered mini dress.
