Sorry, This Popular Shoe Trend Will Be Replaced in Two Months

I have some news for you, my friends. Strappy heels, the much-loved shoe style that has taken over in 2019, are set to be replaced in the next few months by square-toe heels—specifically, the square-toe pumps and mules that are already sweeping across Instagram. This is in large part thanks to Creative Director Daniel Lee and his new designs for Bottega Veneta.

Thanks to Lee, the brand is one of the most talked-about in the fashion world right now. His pieces are bringing back the directional yet modern designs many fashion insiders felt were missing from their closets. The fashion fandom around the designer was perhaps clearest when I discovered the Instagram account @newbottega, which is dedicated to all things Lee-era Bottega Veneta, much like @oldceline, the Instagram account that’s a tribute to Phoebe Philo’s designs when she was at the helm of Celine.

Right now, fashion insiders are gravitating toward Bottega Veneta’s pouch bag and its square-toe heels, which are paving the way for the next big shoe trend. Ahead, see how fashion girls are already wearing the next big It shoe style.

There's no doubt that this mesh pump has already reached It-shoe status.

Here's a mule take on the square-toe heel in an electric blue.

But it also comes in neutral shades.

Want to get in on the trend for just $49? Here's how.

Wandler is landing on the must-buy list with its Isa Mules.

They're also available in this bold green color.

I have a feeling these are about to explode on Instagram.
