Backless Flats: Have You Bought Into This Unstoppable Shoe Trend Yet?

Backless Flats: Have You Bought Into This Unstoppable Shoe Trend Yet?

Gucci started it with that flat, furry backless loafer and then we flocked in our millions buying backless loafers, slippers and clogs that had that bohemian Alessandro Michele vibe. Two years down the line and it’s the trend that just won’t go away. From sleeker leather loafers to ornate embroidered slippers, everyone from Dolce to Stella to hot new footwear brand Attico have ticked that all-important backless box.
The high-street has just as many brilliant hero styles too. Zara, Mango and Topshop are all in on the backless shoe act. ‘I think the reason they’ve become so ubiquitous is because they’re so easy to wear’ says InStyle’s Editor In Chief, Charlotte Moore. 

Wear them with jeans or mid-length skirts and dresses, or a crisp white shirt-dress for a sunny summer's day at work. And get the right pair and they’ll be coming in the suitcase on holiday with you, for sure. Flying off soon? Make sure you look at this holiday packing checklist first. 
And just when you thought you’d seen every type of slipper out there, something new and exciting will drop. Right now there’s everything from jacquard to glitter to velvet with embellishments ranging from tassels to pop pops to diamante encrusted buckles. You want it, it’s out there.
