This Shoe Trend Makes Any Outfit Look Expensive

When it comes to shoe trends, I tend to gravitate toward styles that are versatile and polished. Rather than collecting a number of shoes I don't wear, I prefer having a small edit of pieces with a great cost-per-wear that can work with just about any outfit. What's one of my favorite wear-with-anything pieces? Faux-croc shoes.

Crocodile-effect shoes have long been a favorite on the runway, on the street style scene, and in outfits that pop up on my Instagram feed. The magical thing about this shoe trend is that it feels endlessly elevated and elegant, but instead of having to invest major dollars in it, you can get expensive-looking mock-croc shoes for a fraction of what the real deal would cost. Ahead, shop my edit of the best faux-croc shoes to wear this year.
