We all know that fashion trends are about style over substance – it’s the reason we love them so much. But sometimes, certain trends can verge on the ridiculous. Take this season’s love for peeptoe boots for instance. I can totally understand them during the summer, they look great with cropped, ankle baring trousers and a good pedicure, but fast forward to a washout August and a nearly-upon-us autumn, and these fanciful toe exposing boots become redundant – as well as soggy.
In a torrential downpour (just look outside) these boots might look good on the surface, but when you are slipping and sliding around inside them with soaking tootsies the appeal will soon wear off. Maybe it’s a transitional thing, and in a few weeks the heavier winter boots will have dropped into stores and these daring, dangerous boot-relatives will be a thing for dry days (or maybe next spring).
However, until then the shops are full of them, so if you are loving the look and are more than willing to sacrifice a little bit of substance for a slice of seriously on-trend style, then I wish you and your toes all the best of luck.
