Booties, booties, booties, booties rockin’ everywhere. In 2020, maximalist booties will reign. Whether you pair them with a sleek minimalist look—and let your booties do the talking—or go full maximalist with both your ensemble and booties, you can’t miss with this trend.

2. Loafers with a Twist

Oof, I love a good loafer, so seeing the new 2020 loafer trends make an appearance during fashion month was a treat. In the new year, expect your favorite loafers to show up, but with sartorially intriguing twists (like buckles where you’d least expect them or patterns you’d never imagine).

I love the little bit of animal print on these loafers.

Lace-up sandals are probably the most low-key 2020 shoe trend, but still perfect for all your spring and summer adventures. They look great paired with dresses, jeans, jumpsuits—pretty much anything your heart desires.

Just because minimalist shoes are sure to trend in 2020 doesn’t mean they’re boring. In fact, expect minimalist designs, but with some asymmetrical twists.

Make me tall, please! As someone who’s 5’3″ and also isn’t great at walking in heels, the 2020 platform shoe trend is a dream come true. Plus, there are so many ways you’ll see this trend created—from maximalist boots like the Hello Kitty ones above or minimalist platforms sure to go with every outfit.
