I'm Spotting Every "Need to Know" Shoe Trend at Zara—6 I'm Losing It Over

As I did my routine scroll through Zara's new arrivals, I was so impressed by the shoes that I saw that I instantly dashed to the site's dedicated shoe section. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by literally every pair of shoes that I've been dreaming about wearing for the past few months. No trend was left behind. Pretty much all the shoes my favorite It girls have been wearing were here at under $100, so you bet I was intrigued. 

This year's shoe trend cycle has served us well. Instead of bombarding us with a new trend every month, the latest offerings from designers have had major staying power. So seeing them all lined up with Zara price tags got me excited. With pointed toes, metallics, unique loafers, and more, dressing from the shoes up just got way more fun. You'll find what you're looking for to complete that look below. 

1. Buckle Up

2022 Zara shoe trends



Nineties-inspired buckle strap sandals are going to be the fashion set's go-to for the rest of the year, starting now. It may be cold, but when you have a pair of shoes this good, you wear them anyway.

These are on par with the runway trends as of late.

A subtle way to reference the trend.

I haven't seen anything more "cool girl" than these.

2. Pointy Toes

Upgrade any outfit instantly with a pointed-toe shoe. Choosing a pair that comes in a bright and cheery hue just so happens to be my secret to turning jeans and a tee into a look

4. Retro Sneakers

While I love classic white sneakers, they can get boring sometimes. I can certainly confirm that retro sneakers will continue to be big in 2023.

Black sneakers are absolutely underrated.

Off-white also has my heart right now.

These are the types of sneakers that will make people ask you where you got them from.

Pairing these with a suit is genius.

5. Flatform

You've certainly already heard the news that flatform shoes are going to be so big in 2023. I, for one, just can't seem to shut up about them. Being on the taller side still doesn't steer me away from this style. Bring on the height!

These shoes have me so ready for summer.

I'm officially thinking about a trip to Greece.
