The retro shoe trend
Fashion has repeated itself time and again. You may have heard the old saying “There is nothing new under the sun”. Apparels like leggings, skinny leg jeans, vintage tops and waist belts from the 70’s and 80’s make a comeback. Over the past many years, the hottest fashion lines have made a comeback. Fashion experts agree that retro shoes have been a rage for both men and women.
Instead of investing in new shoes, ransack your mom or dad’s attic. Of course, making them part with their ‘golden days’ memories would be a battle. And now that you know retro styles will be back, there is no harm in indulging a bit extra on Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin.
Here are the top three retro-designs that are a must-have in your wardrobe-
1. Oxford shoes
Jessica Biel was seen wearing two-tone high-heeled oxfords at the NASCAR race. All retro and vintage shoe patrons must have a pair of classic oxfords. You can pair them with formal suits and trousers. Chic leather designs with enclosed lacing add a classic touch to any attire.
2. Saddle shoes
Saddle shoes are actually variations of Oxford shoes. Unlike conventional and dressier oxfords which have a uniform color, saddles have brown or black leather strips across the tops. Mostly popular as club wear in the 1950s, these shoes are appropriate for casual business environments.
3. Italian suede loafers
Suede loafers made from fine Italian leather symbolize the golden times when retro styles were listed amongst cool shoes. They regain their popularity again as a chic alternative to contemporary pumps and ballerina shoes.
