These 5 Trending It Shoes Are the Opposite of Casual

Much like with handbags, identifying It shoes is something I take very seriously. Unlike with handbags, however, today's findings required no actual finding at all. No, seriously. Before deciding to write this story, I had this short list of shoes in my mind for weeks, both because I was in the market for a new pair of fun heels for myself and because I couldn't help but see them literally everywhere I turned. 

From Instagram to celebrity snaps to all my favorite shopping sites—until, of course, they repeatedly sell out—this season’s standout shoes are not only popular but also omnipresent. Even more notably, however, they’re refreshingly fancy. As you’ll soon see below, when it comes to casual, these designers don’t know her, and I have to say I’m into it. After years of favoring the chill-girl aesthetic, I’m more than ready to bring party dressing back, even if there’s no real party involved. If this sounds like your thing or you’re simply curious to see what I’ve been blabbing on about, just keep scrolling to see the It shoes of the moment for yourself, and of course, shop them and others like them below.
