Stylist Agafja von Gromm explains why open-heel shoes are at the forefront of fashion this spring and summer, and gives five key landmarks for the season. Remember!

Summer will come very soon and, as it turned out during the seasonal fashion weeks, it will come on our heels. You've probably already noticed a fresh trend in shoes yourself - an open heel. Such a turn obliges not only a thorough pedicure (or at least buying a decent pumice stone), but also a slight revision of the wardrobe. But still, let's go in order. In this article, I have collected not only the most current shoe trends for the summer of 2017, but also tips on what to wear them with.
Leather mules loafers
With or without fur - it's up to you. Respectable Gucci or affordable Faith are also the business of every wallet. One thing is clear for sure: we must take! These shoes are extremely comfortable and will look great on a foot up to about size 39. The company will fit skirts and dresses of midi and maxi lengths, as well as deliberately uneven cut jeans, preferably with fringes.
Dolce and gabbana
Shoes with "worn out heels"
For those who have the habit of stepping on shoes since childhood, this is certainly a trend favorite. It is hardly worth describing its convenience in everyday life … Convenient and fashionable, so we take it!
If you've never been to Tokyo, then this trend may seem too extravagant to you …
If you have, then you hardly have to convince for a long time that this is a great option for shoes. After all, if you approach from the practical side, it turns out that platform shoes with open heels are not only beautiful and relevant from the point of view of the trend, but also very pleasant to wear. Legs will not be as tired as it happens with a classic heel, and the extra 7-10 centimeters bothers very few people. Platform sandals will always complement in the best way a short dress or shorts, cropped trousers or the ubiquitous pipe jeans.
Mules (open heel sandals)
A successful attempt to combine practicality and femininity - half-closed sandals. They are comfortable when walking, because, unlike a slap and due to the peculiarity of lifting, they will not jump off. The maximum number of fingers protruding from the front should not exceed two. In this case, the leg will look neat, and in the case of beige shoes - even longer and sleeker.
The ideal set looks like this: cropped jeans or trousers, a white T-shirt and mules. Evening version: a dress or skirt with a trapeze or semi-flared silhouette with a laconic top and a pink-beige version from the picture above. Kills on the spot!
Kendall + Kylie
Embellished or patterned flip flops
Apparently, the holiday on the street of the antagonists of the heels came this year and strengthened for a long time. All kinds of slippers with a wide variety of finishes have climbed to the peak of fashion: fur, painting, rhinestones, beads, pearls, chains. This means that next summer we were finally allowed to relax and play a little naughty. Wear these shoes with shorts, skirts, and ripped jeans. Well, if at work your boss or colleagues finally got you, you can make a small sabotage in protest and show up in such beauty right into the office. Let them envy.
I hope that the above trends will please you and will decorate your shoe shelf very soon. Just a big request: remember the heels! And everything will be fashionable.
