I’ve been working as a fashion editor and a writer for over 10 years now. While my various roles have encompassed a range of tasks, the overarching theme of my career has been to keep a pulse on what matters in fashion—whether that’s scouting the market to uncover shopping gems or researching the latest trends.
Given that trend-forecasting is more or less the name of my game, I like to think I can predict which specific trends will take off each season. In regards to footwear, I think there are actually five shoe trends that will rule spring 2020 based on strong runway presence and popularity amongst the street style scene.
To dive into the matter a bit further, I’m showcasing the key shoe styles I think are worth investing in this season with visual and shopping inspiration. Keep scrolling to build the ideal spring shoe closet, according to me. So go on—I know there’s something for every style with what’s coming ahead…
