Was it not only 5 years ago when our heels had to be stiletto spiked, or else they’d sit under the pile of laundry in our closets? Well, times have changed, but at least styles still repeat! I recently came home with the most amazing pair of thick, chunky, platform shoes, and leave it to Mom to rain on my shoe parade to explain, “Oh I had a pair just like those in the 70’s! What a re-do!” Thanks Mom, now I picture you as a hippie in my newest $100 accessory. Sweet.
Vanessa Hudgens’ 70’s inspired look
Come on, come on, it’s not as bad as I dramatized. The styles actually do repeat! Of course, we just make them much better today, but we still got the inspiration from past decade’s trends. This day in age, shoes follow one rule: the bolder, the better. From color block covered spikes, or clogs plastered in vintage paisley, shoes should be a focal point of any outfit.
Heels are no longer reserved for the work place, ladies sport their sky-scraping footwear 24/7-365. Date nights, shopping, concerts, and baseball games are just eventful excuses for us girls to adorn our feet in the most amazing garb possible. Here are some repetitive shoe styles that work from casual to professional, which will add ‘uumph’ and charm to any outfit, at any budget.
