This trend isn’t one that I like or one that I plan to jump on board with but it’s not going anywhere. We first saw this trend during the fall/winter of 2015 (Miu Miu). I think the reason why I can’t jump on with this one is because it reminds me too much of the 1980’s newscaster style, something pulled directly from the costume room of the Mary Tyler Moore Show.
The trend is specifically a closed or opened-toe thick short, medium or high heel. The variations of this trend are ultra high-heels, boots, lace-up heels or sling-back mules. Because I’m about 5’3, I usually opt for a very high heel. I honestly love the retro look and how we’re remaking styles from the 80’s and 90’s, but 90’s grunge/punk is more my look.
