What is the lucite shoe trend?

First things first, let’s go over what the lucite shoe trend is so that we’re all on the same page.

Lucite shoes make use of a transparent material called lucite. It essentially just looks like plastic, and it can be found in shoes that make use of it for straps, heels, or even full lucite shoes. We sell a pair that looks like this to give you a better idea of the style:

It might be a trend that seems a little different and out there, but trust us, once you see some of the trendy, easy-to-wear ways that you can rock the lucite shoe trend, we’ve got a strong suspicion that you’ll be itching to try out this trend ASAP.

Why we love the lucite shoe trend

Need a little more convincing before incorporating this bold look into your own shoe collection?

No worries, we’ve got you covered.

These are three major reasons for why we love the lucite shoe trend so much, and why we think it’s a trend that’s worth incorporating into your wardrobe this spring:

It can match with everything
We love a good neutral that is versatile enough to match with a variety of looks. This way you get the most wear out of your new pair of shoes. Trendy and versatile? Sounds like the best of both worlds in our books.

It’s different, but wearable
Plain and simple, the lucite trend is something different in footwear, but it’s not so avant-garde or trendy that it’s unattainable for the everyday lady. It’s a style that anyone can incorporate into their look for an instant (and easily achievable) boost of style.

It suits a variety of style preferences
Some shoe trends are more suited for particular style preferences. For example, floral printed shoes are obviously much more ideally suited for a feminine sense of style. Lucite shoes, on the other hand, are a shoe trend that can be adapted to suit a variety of style preferences. Don’t believe us? Let’s go over some of the various ways that lucite shoes can be styled to suit a wide variety of looks:

3 Ways to Style Lucite Shoes

1. Flirty and Feminine

One of our favorite ways to style a pair of lucite heels is to wear them with something flirty and feminine.

If this is up your alley as well, we highly recommend picking up a lucite shoe done with a delicate ankle strap and heel.

While a block heel is always a great option if you really want to bring that feminine flair to your look, stick with lucite heels done in soft shades and delicate details, like a thin heel.

Style the look with a trendy, mini dress in your favorite color or pattern, and we just know this will be a look that everyone will be asking you about.

2. Sexy

If your style tends to gravitate towards the more sexy and edgy end of the spectrum, you’ll likely take style inspiration from someone like Kim Kardashian when deciding how to style your lucite heels.

In particular, for this look, one of our favorite ways to wear lucite heels is in a sky-high heel. This elongates the leg in the most flattering way.

3. Casual and Relaxed

On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you want to rock the lucite shoe trend and your style tends to be a bit more laid-back, you’ll love a pair of lucite slides.

Throw these babies on with your favorite cropped jeans or maxi dress, and voila, you’re ready for the day, totally easy-breezy.

See what we mean? The lucite shoe trend is versatile, no matter what your usual style preferences.

Style them in a way that best suits you for a look that screams trendsetter.
