Now, we are no Carrie Bradshaw, but we sure do have a weakness for shoes. Especially for the gorgeous ones that have been taking up space both on our Instagram feeds and our (virtual) shopping carts. What’s so special about them? They are just shoes, aren’t they? Well, no. We’re not talking about just any footwear, but the most stunning pairs of shoes which would even put Cinderella’s glass slipper to shame. The reason? Their artistically embellished heels, of course.
In a surprising turn of events, the fashion world is ditching sneakers for heeled sandals. Sparkling shoes with decorated heels are “It” girls’ latest obsession. The heels – both tall and short, chunky and skinny – adorned with everything from rhinestones to pearls to feathers are the footwear trend du jour.
While we aren’t entirely sure how the embellished heel trend came to be, we have a feeling that designer Amina Muaddi’s tremendously popular sandals have a little something to do with it. Sure, embellished shoes have been around forever, but we can’t ignore the fact that Muaddi breathed new life into the glitzy trend with her emblematic inverted cocktail glass-shaped heels.
While we can’t be certain about the origin of the trend, one thing we are sure of is that heels sprinkled with embellishments are in it for the long haul, making them well worth your investment.
