Best 2017 Street Style Trends Included Peek-A-Boo Shoes and Monochrome

Face it. As much as the industry has its collective groans at the thought of prepping for, schlepping through and recapping fashion month twice a year, street style still delivers the magic that adds a festive spirit to the air. From the concerted effort to look — ironically or not — effortless, to the Pinterest-worthy outfits waiting around every bend, fashion week is not complete without the catwalk held outdoors.

This year the looks were as flawless as one would expect among the congregation of the world’s chicest, who showed off a few key trends from city to city. White shoes were top of mind for virtually every style influencer (and celebrity) around — booties were a particular favorite.

Monochrome was a must on the list of wardrobe staples; specifically, all red was an all-around winner whether in a sandals with sweats get-up or a sheer dress with Prada feather-trim satin platforms like Giovanna Battaglia’s idea.

Canadian tuxedos with heels had — and are still having as evidenced by one of Cardi B and Steve Madden’s recent holiday campaign images  — a moment. Statement booties especially worked to liven up the casual aesthetic. Take fashion blogger Erika Boldrin who opted for floral-print Balenciaga knife boots and created an asymmetrical shape with her jacket to modernize her denim-on-denim at London Fashion Week in September.

Amid the clicks and clacks of booties and platforms, however, there was one footwear trend that heavily resurfaced from season to season: peek-a-boo shoes hidden by floor-grazing hemlines. Thus, the star aesthetic for shoes this season was actually when they were only slightly visible, peeking under a pair of voluminous palazzo pants or statement maxi dresses.

Indeed, while the clothes got bigger the shoes took a backseat. It made the subtlety of their peek-a-boo appearance all the more important for a fully polished look.
