2022 Summer Shoe Trends... Spoiler Alert! It's NOT Flip Flops!
Summer shoe trends highlight big and clunky, but also small and light.
Summer shoe trends include everything from clunky to minimal.
Even though you may not want your shoes to steal your summer outfit’s spotlight, it will be hard to hide the “funk-appeal” of what’s trending this summer. We’ve got real statement makers this season, but there are also some “less is more” stylish footwear options that’ll give your warm weather attire that perfect light touch. We’ve got you covered on the 2022 summer shoe trends.
Go bold or barely there with the latest fashion summer shoe trends.
Flat platforms (aka flatforms)
They’re big. They’re clunky. They lift you up — literally and figuratively. That’s right folks, they’re flatforms and they’re back in style from circa 1998. When you think about it, these are great for the summer because they add height and are quite breathable. Plus, you can dress them up for work and then dress them right back down for the beach. They’re flatforms! (I just like saying “flatforms.”) Go for the basic Birkenstock look with a lift — platform style.
Straight out of the 1970s — well, not really — clogs are making a comeback! We’ll call them the modern-day clog though, because these clogs are not your grandmother’s shoes. Sorry, grandma! They can be heeled or flat, but just make sure you choose a style with subtle details that prolongs the lifespan. You’ll want to wear them for longer than one summer, after all!
Another word for this trend is the “naked shoe.” They’re shoes, but not noticeable shoes. You get it? The strappy kind are best. The idea is that they’re barely there. You’ll feel like you really aren’t wearing any shoes, and other people won’t notice much of a shoe — the complete opposite of the clunky flatform or clog. What’s nice about the “naked shoe” is that they’ll go with everything from a summer sundress to ankle-cropped jeans. You can’t go wrong.
In the heat of the summer, you might want to throw in some bright colors here and there. No need for neutral all the time. Summer shoe trends also call for bright hues that will bring out the “umpf” in your outfit. Those “kitten heels” can be a great option for a small heel packed with some color punch.
Don’t be afraid to go bold this summer!
