Acne, Givenchy, Khaite, and many have their own rendition of the strappy shoes that perfect for morning and evening outfits.
- G-string– A visible G-string peeking through the garment is the risque trend that no one asked for. Models at Givenchy, Laquan Smith, and Dion Lee fashion show flaunted the G-string. Givenchy’s showstopping low back, G-string dress has been quite popular with celebrities and influencers alike. A more approachable version of this trend is skirts, dress, and pants that are designed with cutouts around the waist to give the illusion of the undergarment.
- House slippers– House slippers are no longer bound within the four walls of a home, they are a high-street fashion statement. In line with the theme of comfort, house slippers were the unexpected heroes on Balenciaga, Coach, and Molly Goddard show. They can be paired with anything basically, a flowy dress, comfy sweatpants, or casual jeans.
- Second-skin tops– Second skin tops are great for layering underneath the clothes. Plain or dripped with logos and prints, brands like Prada, Raf Simons, and Ganni layered this top underneath coats and jackets.
- Long dresses– Flowy, long dresses are simplistic and perfect for the spring-summer season. Dresses in soft fabrics with refined tailoring and unstructured silhouettes are easy to wear, easy to style, and multi-functional.
