While 2020 seems like the year you collected slippers, slippers. . . And even more slippers, our stay-home style actually laid the foundation for the shoe trends we will wear in 2021. If you look at the runways and some designer favorites, it’s clear that luxury labels like Khaite and Bottega Veneta have reintroduced the leather flat and sandal, albeit in some exciting new shapes. Our relaxed lifestyle goes perfectly with a flat silhouette that is just as comfortable.
We also see brands like Proenza Schouler, Chloé and Stella McCartney that inspire hard boots beyond the hiking shoe. These utility boots brilliantly combine fashion and function in a brilliant way and look great too, complimented by the fuzzy socks we lived in – and you can wear them with your cutoffs too. That being said, prep fans will be thrilled that the loafer is back in 2021, and of course, tinted colorways give us a palette for all seasons.
