It all started on the runway of Celine last spring. The French brand sent down models in footwear that are of different colors—on purpose! While we weren't sure if the trend would catch on, soon enough, more designers followed suit. Emilio Pucci, Moschino, and even Calvin Klein had fun intentionally mispairing their models' shoes during presentations.
The quirky shoe trend is now being worn by street style stars, bringing a new take on their outfits with a subtle pop of color or an elevated incorporation of hues and textures.
However, unless your shoes come in packaged mispairs, hopping into the trend can be a tricky thing to do. Our simple tip though, is to buy from the same brand, featuring the same styles. That way, if you choose to wear heels, they would be in the same heel height, thus eliminating the possibility of walking with a limp! Wearing footwear in mixed neutral colors is also a good way to ease into it. If you're feeling a bit adventurous, try to mix and match different prints and textures. You can even test out your flair in mixing colors to complement your outfit!
