My next DIY will be about – surprise-surprise! – shoes and fringe, so today’s fashion inspiration is all about shoes and fringe! In this post I will show you 7 most popular fringe summer shoes for Summer 2015. And in the end you will see a weird creation of Helmut Lang who tried to make fringe popular in the distant 2004.
Let’s begin with an upcycled pair of sandals by Brit+Co. Smart and crafty girls took sandals from the last season and added some trendy tassels. The tassels are removable, and this allows to easily downgrade the shoes to their original classic look. So practical. And so crafty. Awww why didn’t I think about it! Read the full DIY here.
These ones is for trend obsessed shopaholics. They bring together two latest trends: fringe + gladiators. Personally I am not a big fan of gladiators, but I love this hybrid because of their complicated simplicity (hmmm how is it possible that simplicity is complicated?)
The next ones are fringe mules, the controversial shoes of the last season! Many hate them; some wear them. I have been always wondering why the shoes got the name of a horse relative and who on Earth called them this way? They do look like hooves, but why the mules’ ones?
In fact, the name has nothing to do with the animal. The mule is defined simply as a backless shoe. It can be a sandal, a clog, a sneaker, high- or low-healed, casual or formal. The shoe’s name derives from the Latin word mulleus, which was a type of ceremonial shoe worn by highly placed government officials in ancient Rome. Then mules were always a dark, red leather, but today the name indicates the cut of the shoe rather than its color or purpose (the text is from here).
How about you guys, do you like them?
Evening Shoes With Metallic Fringe
With these shoes you will never stumble in dark. The fringe is so shiny that it will light up your path. Super convenient when you come back from a late party at night.
Otrot Suede Sandals by Christian Louboutin
Oh, these ones. My total true love. Christian Louboutin Otrot suede sandals with fringe. They are a bird of paradise of your shoe closet. A diamond shining among dull rocks of flats and thick heels.
Warning! The next picture after this one contains some shoe cruelty and beauty violence. If you care about the shoes in general and these ones in particular, skip it. I beg you skip it. Your heart may stop (for a moment). Better to scroll to the one after it.
I warned you, and you did not listen. So, look at this cruelty. They put the paradise shoes in water!!! How could they! They made this soft tender suede soaking wet. These marketing people, they have no heart. I cannot look at it, no.
Let’s look at fruits instead. Aaah, much better.
Wild Thing Sandals by Aquazzura
Here comes my other total love (I am generous with my love today). Soft elegant Wild Thing sandals by Aquazzura kinda justify their name by being wildly popular. They are so popular that all the online stores I checked have run out of them. Aww. Let’s just look at these cuties and envy the lucky girls who managed to buy them.
Aww, here comes FIES-S-STA! Fiesta Meredith fringe wedges by Charlotte Olympia with tassels that dance as you walk. It’s like wearing a little carnival on your feet!
If you want something less flashy, opt for solid color fringe wedges.
Weirdo by Helmut Lang
Aaand here comes the weirdo! A weird creation of Helmut Lang, 2004. Genuine horsehair fringing. Two-in-one: Sandals and a broom. Perfect for sweeping the floor as you walk.
Tell me guys: Which pair of fringe shoes did you like the best?
