If you suddenly meet on the street a stylish girl in shoes of different colors – do not rush to blame her for being absent-minded. The thing is that this season the mismatched shoes trend has regained its relevance.

The most skilled fashionistas are surely familiar with the technique of steamed shoes, which helps to make the bow more refined and effective without much effort. In the end, once Kerry Bradshaw herself, who is still read as an unshakable style icon and a queen of shoes, officially gave the green light for mixed shoes, appearing in one of the episodes of the series “Sex and the City” in sandals of different colors.

Since then, the trend for different shoes has occasionally appeared on fashion radars, but has not been fixed there – until this season. At the spring-summer 2017 fashion weeks in the same shoe models, but girls of different colors flaunted the Céline catwalks. Already in the next season, at the fall-winter 2017 shows, fashion houses Moschino and Calvin Klein took up the baton, offering their own mismatched — an option with a mix of print and decor. Another hit of this trend is flats and shoes Miu Miu with different color straps, which over the past few months more and more often appear in the trendsetters instagram.
