Out with the old and in with the new! As we all know, trends can come and go – and that gives us all an excuse for some retail therapy. Am I right? Shoe trends and silhouettes are constantly shifting just as much as clothing. As a certified shoe junkie, I am constantly scoping the fashion landscape to see what the latest silhouettes, shapes, and colors will be hitting the mass market next. Luckily, summer is an amazing time to refresh your shoe collection. There are always tons of new styles to show off as we bare our legs more in the hot weather. Here are the outdated shoe trends you may have in your closet and what to replace them with.

Outdated shoe trends and what to replace them with - kitten heels

Old: Mary Janes
New: Kitten Heels

In the Fall, classic Mary Jane shoes were definitely trending with their eponymous round toe and strap across the instep. However, as we move towards warmer weather, people are definitely favoring another timeless silhouette that is a little more open and airy. The kitten heel is not only chic, but it’s a practical style that can easily adapt to a workplace outfit, brunch attire, or a formal setting. You will continue to see different variations of the kitten heel paired with suit sets, summer dresses, and mini skirts.

Although we continue to see the clear PVC trend circulating around in the form of handbags and heels, expect to move away from them in the coming months – especially in the shoe department. That barely there shoe look is being replaced by the exact opposite. Every instagram girl seems to be rocking these slinky sandals with multiple straps adorned all around it. A simple pair of strappy heels will add the finishing touches to any of your summer looks.

Old: Round/Pointed Toe
New: Square Toe

A shoe trend that is constantly evolving is the shape of the toe. Previously, the shoe market was dominated by round and pointed heeled shoes, but these are pushed aside as we make way for the return of the square toe. Clearly another resurgence from the 90’s, the square toed shoe is taking over multiple silhouettes, including heels, mules, and mid-calf boots.

Old: Tapestry
New: Animal Print

Shoes with tapestry woven patterns and flashy florals are done. We have now moved onto into incorporating animal print into our beloved shoes. Neutral cheetah and snake skin are some of the easiest ways to ease into this footwear trend. Plus, it makes any outfit look a little more interesting with the perfect amount of print that doesn’t necessarily take away from an outfit.

Old: Pool Slides
New: Chunky Sandals

As far as some of the more relaxed footwear options, pool slides were definitely big in previous seasons. However, for summer 2019, the latest casual style shoe is the chunky sandal. Think touristy vibes and utility shoes with a contemporary upgrade. Perhaps this is the summer version of the dad shoe? Birkenstock-like shoes are not only being paired with jeans and tees, but also romantic tops and feminine dresses for something new and refreshing.
