Braiding – a design trend that’s turning our heads

With the beginning of summer, two very specific shoe styles move into the focus of the fashionistas of the fashion world. Sandals and mules surprise us year after year with their unusual designs. What stands out this season is the great attention to detail that designers work with. One trend that caught our eye is cleverly woven straps. In this article, you’ll find out how you can best stage these trendy It-pieces and what you should definitely have on your radar right now!

Holiday vibes:

In summer, my looks must be one thing – uncomplicated! I love trend pieces that enhance my entire outfit with their design and give it a certain style. My main focus is always on a fancy summer model, which I can combine with all my favourite parts, whether chic or casual. This season, the plaited look has been particularly appealing to me – the playful design puts me in the holiday mood!

 Soft sand

Soft sand

A trend we can't avoid this season? Hues of warm beige, whiskey and cream tones, which are an absolute must for anyone who loves an elegant appearance. This classic colour palette invites us to create monochrome looks this summer, according to the motto "the more coordinated, the better". Regardless of style, such a combination always looks elegant and convinces with subtle minimalism. Score points with selected fabrics highlighting your look. Flowing and lightweight materials, such as linen or airy knitwear, are particularly popular. Our favourite – cool slacks or chinos with a wide cut top. To ensure the look remains relaxed and at the same time retains its noble character, choose open shoes that match in colour and feature design details for an eye-catching performance.

Our "Kent-Sport" mules are perfect for the trendy nude look. The light sand shade is easy to match with anything, while the playful braided design of the straps add that little extra something. The comfy HighSoft soles are an absolute bonus when it comes to the best wearing comfort!

 Cool cut-outs

Cool cut-outs

Tops with cut-outs are one of the hottest fashion trends of the summer. Whether blouses with fine broderie anglaise, knit sweaters with embroidery or tops with clever cut-outs - here are the latest trends! The airy designs are perfect for warm summer days and don't require any elaborate styling, as they alone are already statement enough. But, if you still want to emphasise your it-piece, choose a bright colour. For example, a trendy sandal with a stylish braid is perfect to revisit the airiness of the look. Rely on fashion classics in neutral colours for the rest of the look, to make sure the overall outfit looks high-quality and modern. A pair of light trousers and white sandals are a summer must-have that should not be missing in any wardrobe. The subtle braided design of the sandal is not only airy, it also harmonises perfectly with the extravagant top and ripped jeans. The outfit is thus skilfully rounded off.

The orange off-shoulder jumper and our white leather Kos sandals make for the perfect fashion duo! The comfy Highsoft equipment ensures the best comfort on warm summer days. Thanks to the practical Velcro closure, the sandal is also very easy to put on and take off!

 Boho summer

Boho summer

No summer without Boho! The typical summer style is known for romantic maxi dresses, floral prints, relaxed and yet very feminine shapes. In addition to long dresses and skirts, jumpsuits are an absolute favourite of the season. It's no wonder because no other garment combines the elegance of a dress with the comfort of a pair of trousers, just like the popular one-piece. Matching the Boho trend, fashion fans will choose a jumpsuit with a unique floral pattern and combine it with a comfortable mule. Attention - a mule with a braided design is an essential part of a successful Boho style! When it comes to the colour, you can choose a classic brown tone, or you can opt for the hit of the season - colourful leather straps! A strikingly profiled sole makes the look perfect all around and is an additional eye-catcher at the same time.

The combination of an elegant blue jumpsuit and our Kent-Sport mules is our summer favourite! The colourful, braided leather straps exude a good mood, thanks to the cool colour mix and comfy HighSoft features. The crossed straps not only look great, but also provide particularly good support - perfect for long shopping trips and walks!

One trend and so many styling options! Summer shoes with a braid design made us fall in love right away. The most popular models can be combined in different ways and are always an eye-catcher. Whether classically elegant or trendy and colourful, you're guaranteed to find your next favourite pair here!
