It seems like the one thing people are buying this month (and talking about buying and then Instagramming about buying) is sandals. I have already written what I can only describe as a dissertation on this year's sandals trends, however, there are two in particular that I keep seeing people in fashion circles wearing on my Instagram feed. In 2019, it's a tale of two sandals.
First up, we have the '90s strappy sandals—this is a trend that buyers have seriously backed, as Net-a-Porter revealed it had sold 11,000 pairs of the naked sandal. The other viral sandal trend is the polar opposite—chunky velcro practical sandals have been given the fashion stamp of approval by Prada. If anyone has the power to make us put velcro on our feet, it's Miuccia Prada.
