After each season of runway shows, the Marie Claire fashion team returns from Milan and Paris and holds a trend meeting to break down the season's latest and greatest. Let me be specific here: This meeting takes weeks of prep, spans the afternoon, and pours into the next couple of days. We turn from fashion editors into mad scientists, deciphering what the season has to offer and translating it to suit the tone of the magazine. For spring/summer 2020, there were lots of highlights, for shoes in particular: We saw strappy sandals interlaced with delicate chains at Oscar de la Renta; we saw woven flat lace-ups at Prada that Cali girls dream of; and we saw the most psychedelic of boots at Paco Rabanne that would even make Edie Sedgwick jealous. From thong sandals and flatforms to shoes with a touch of jewelry, theres a shoe trend this summer that is right for you.
