Lila Moss Just Wore the Low-Heel Shoe You'll See All Over Europe This Summer

New runway hero and front-row favourite Lila Moss is privy to the industry's latest and greatest trends and has subsequently honed a wardrobe that mirrors the excellent taste she's been exposed to by her supermodel mum. With a strong sense of personal style, Kate Moss' daughter seems to favour comfortable pieces with a polished edge. Often incorporating Y2K favourites such as low-rise jeans, cargo pants and ballet flats into her look, the 21-year-old always pulls her outfits together with an on-trend finish.

Assembling a relaxed weekend look, Moss elevated her summer style by opting for a shoe trend I have a feeling will be all over Europe this summer. Instead of a plain pair of heeled mules, she went for a pretty bow-embellished kitten-heel style to complete her look. Leaning into her playful side, Moss' fun summer styling was complete with a bright red top, blue jeans and an oversized scrunchie.

Taking inspiration from the coquette trend that has featured heavily in the past six months of fashion, bow-embellished mules offer a cute and wearable take on the romantic aesthetic. A charming alternative to the high-heeled sandals that tend to come into play during the summer, especially where formal occasions are concerned, this low-heeled shoe trend offers comfort to see you through the entire day.

I've already spotted the trend cropping up on French influencers this summer, and my colleague Maxine Eggenberger, Who What Wear's deputy editor, also clocked them on a few of Croatia's stylish inhabitants after dark in the city of Split on a recent trip. This makes sense, as there's something about this retro shoe silhouette that feels inherently European. Why not give it a London-girl spin by styling yours with a pair of well-loved jeans and a pretty top, like Moss? Otherwise, wear them with a flowing cotton skirt or dress for a summer-ready outfit you'll come back to all season.
