Clear see through heels make footwear covet-worthy this season.
Clear heels of various styles, from wedge, block to ultra high heel selections have left a lasting impression after designers recently highlighted them as spring and summer of 2013’s freshest footwear trend to sport.
As fashion consists of a re-imagined production of seasons past fads, the clear heel trend which had been referred by the New York Magazine in 2009 as an ‘on trend’ footwear style for Spring 2010 is still holding the fashion crowd in a trance this year.
Taylor Momsen propelled the clear heel trend straight into the spotlight when she wore a pair of transparent high heels with cash tip slots (teamed with an ‘outfit’ that consisted of a shirt — worn as dress — with oversized arm holes to reveal a generous peek of inner wear)which had triggered endless debates as the public couldn’t reconcile the fact that a 16-year-old was wearing a shoe style associated with erotic performers.
Looking back, Momsen’s state of undress and choice of footwear is nothing to shout about when compared to ball-wrecking new Miley, yes?
Drawing inspirations from both erotic stripper heels and the demure innocence of Cinderella’s glass slippers, the modern day’s clear cut designs with lower heels made sleek with a block or wedge style elevations blend seamlessly into any kind of outfit, from casual to formal.
