Let’s be honest; being an adult isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. We’re kinda done with paying bills and working 9-5 now, so can we just go back to the ‘90s when all we had to worry about was which video we were going to rent from Blockbuster? That would be great, thanks. Of course, unless anyone builds a time machine anytime soon, that’s not going to happen, but we can embrace old ‘90s fashion trends. You know, like these amazing square-toe sandals…
A Total Square
Back in the day, being called a ‘Square’ was an insult – but this season, it’s the ultimate compliment. Round-toe shoes are sooo ‘00s, and it’s now time for the ‘90s square-toe sandals to come back to where they rightfully belong. Yes, that’s in our closet. One of the main reasons for this resurgence is the fact that many designers are finding inspiration from vintage clothing and their fashion forefathers and foremothers. Because of this, vintage trends are coming back to life.
The Big Names
It’s been noted that more independent fashion brands such as Loq, Rafa, and By Far were the first to bring this square-toe shoe trend back into the 21st Century, and it seems as though high-end fashion designers are now following suit. With this in mind, you don’t have to search too far to try and find a celebrity Instagram post that doesn’t showcase these shoes in all of their glory. After all, they are pretty awesome.
Dressing Them Up And Down
Aside from the fact that these square-toe sandals bombard us with wonderful nostalgia, these shoes are also perfect when trying something new with your outfit. You can dress them up and down, which means that you could wear them to the beach, or you could turn them into an epic pair of work shoes. The square-toe world is your oyster.
Help! We’ve fallen in love with shoes…
