As a self-proclaimed fashion girl who loves shoes, I find the following subject an easy one for me to speak to. I'm one of those annoying people who can't help but look at a person's shoes when I meet or greet them. They can say a lot about them and will immediately tell me if the person is sporty, appreciates comfort, watches the weather, and/or pays attention to fashion.
As a fashion editor, it's my job to have an acute knowledge of the latest trends—shoes included. So if I spot one of these latest and greatest shoe trends on someone in the wild (or the wild that is Instagram), I know they're following fashion to some degree, perhaps even by reading Who What Wear (shameless plug). I compiled eight specific shoe trends that prove your fashion-girl street cred at this very moment, and if that's something you want more of, keep scrolling to shop them for yourself.
When you see a pair of very cool, very fancy shoes that have some element of sparkle, they're probably Amina Muaddi shoes. As a testament to their popularity, every time they're restocked, they sell out again.
