There is a fabulous foot trend that has everyone talking! From the runways to the streets, designers and celebs are opting for some fancy footwork...and they're not high heals. They're rocking embellished sneakers! With Spring 2014 just around the corner, it's the perfect time to try new trends out, and ditching your typical cross trainers to add instant glam to any outfit is certainly a great way to start! Designers like Christian Dior and Chanel flaunted their pumped up kicks adorned with sequins, pearls, and other embellishments on the runways of fashion week, and the runway looks are already hitting the streets. We are loving this trend and can't wait to see how it continues to grow!
The designers at Christian Dior had models in athletic mesh shoes adorned with multicolored sequins. Chanel also took a bold fashion choice by dressing models in chunky sneakers embellished with tweed, shiny leather, and sheer laces giving the shoes an ultra feminine look.
We are loving these designs and think this fun footwear trend will not only be popular on the streets, but will carry into prom. Many prom dress designers are photographing models wearing high-tops embellished with crystals, interesting textures, and zippers. Even though the Chanel version can cost up to $4,000, you can still get the look with other inexpensive designers and can even make a pair yourself with some time and creativity!
Of course, if you love high heels, it doesn't mean you have to lose your pumps to rock sneakers at prom. Wear your heels to the dance, but bring the sneakers as your go-to comfy option once your feet start to get tired. Or, keep the heels on all night and rock the sparkly shoes for after-prom!
