This season, it seems that footwear has been moving steadily away from the “less is more,” minimal ideal and instead, heading in the opposite direction. Embellishments have been taking over shoe designs for summer ’17 — from feathers and pom-poms to blingy crystals, tassels and more.
That said, we’re not only seeing this trend from the likes of Fendi and Rochas and other high-end brands, but also fast-fashion retailers such as Topshop, Urban Outfitters and Zara have caught on too.
Read on to shop affordable and splurge-worthy embellished mules with heels for summer.
