After first coming into style back in the 1960s, slides have re-emerged over the past few years – but are they still on trend in 2021?
The easy-to-wear shoes are a summer staple. Despite appearing like a sporty shoe, don’t be fooled into thinking slides aren’t versatile; they can create a pared back look when teamed with a dress or skirt, can be added to a chic tailored outfit, or simply along with a bikini for the perfect poolside look.
Despite their versatility, we’re seeing slides less and less (and other styles for spring summer 2021 more and more). At Wear Next, we encourage you to wear what feels comfortable and makes you feel confident, but for those seeking advice, we’re taking a look at whether slides are still in style this year.
Are slides in style in 2021?
If you’re still keen on the sporty and practical shoe, opt for flip flops or Teva sandals for a similar and modern take on the shoe.
What shoes are in style for 2021?
This season, chunky leather flip flops, caged sandals and flatforms are taking centre stage.
We’re seeing fashion favouring practical shoes over uncomfortable and awkward styles, with chunky soles and supportive sandals on the rise.
Are mules still in style in 2021?
Mules are a wardrobe staple that we believe never go out of style, but as 90s fashion makes a comeback in 2021, the mule has also surged in popularity.
The Attico’s sell-out neon mules have been particularly popular this year after being spotted on celebrities Kylie Jenner and Hailey Bieber, while as previously mentioned, clogs are also one of this season’s most coveted styles.
