Remember when Helena Bonham Carter who two different shoes on the Golden Globes red carpet back in 2011? Well, the fashion world has finally caught up with her because mismatched shoes are now an unlikely fashion trend.
Things started when Celine showed mismatched heels as part of its Spring 2017 runway show. While some might have thought it was an interesting styling trick, the majority of them wrote it off as something that would be left for the runway as opposed to real life. Well, just like other unexpected fashion trends (hello, crop tops), people are trying out the mismatched shoe trend in real life.
А вы когда-нибудь пробовали носить обувь одной модели, но разных цветов?! Для того, чтобы не выглядеть фриком в данном случае нужна правильная одежда! Она должна быть максимально простой, однотонной, без сложного кроя и перекликаться цветом с выбранной палитрой обуви. #mismatchedshoes #туфлиразныхцветов #loafershoes #gogetbest #стилист #имиджмейкер #стилистмосква #shoppingmsk #разборгардероба #ищустилиста #lookoftheday #outfit #dailyfashion #outfitoftheday #fashionblogger #шопинг #шопингсопровождение #vouge #fashion #чтонадеть #каксочетать #howtowear #stylist
A few fashionistas are taking inspiration from Celine and playing around with contrasting heels and ankle boots, but others are experimenting with all different types footwear. At last count, the #mismatchedshoes hashtag on Instagram has over 3,200 examples. And they feature a range of shoes from loafers to running shoes to ballet flats. And there are some who are trying the look out with sandals.

If you’re going to try out the trend, the key thing is to make it look intentional. You don’t want people to wonder whether you really did get dressed in the dark and whether you realize you’re wearing two different shoes. So, own it.
Oh, and make sure that you choose shoes that are of the same height and style. You do not want to be hobbling around because one shoe is higher than the other.
