As much as I’d like to think I know everything about the fashion horizon, the honest truth is that trend forecasting isn’t an exact science. Some build up slowly and eventually peak, while other trends appear seemingly spontaneously without much warning. Whether it’s a feeling in the air or a very conscious embrace, sometimes there’s really no reason why certain trends grab everyone’s attention all at once. But when this happens, it’s something you usually notice as a fashion editor. And I certainly noticed them.
One of the biggest unexpected trends to really take off this summer is the lucite heel. Years ago, I clearly remember saving up all year to buy a pair of transparent Maryam Nassir Zadeh wedges. It was the It sandal of the day, and every fashion editor I knew had them. Lucite heels haven’t been on my radar since, but surprisingly it has had a bit of a comeback in 2022. Now they are everywhere. The same goes for the heart-shaped pendant with cord. Watching it gives me instant flashbacks to my 90s childhood – never in my wildest dreams did I think it would become the cult accessory it is today. More pieces unexpectedly win the season – keep scrolling to read all about them.
