It is no secret that the Y2K revival was in full swing for 2022. And it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. All the styles we once wore in the early aughts are back in style, from low-rise jeans to mini skirts and butterfly clips, Is this the latest throwback piece? Sandals with toe rings.
This summer’s polarizing shoe trend is hot and being adopted by stars like Bella Hadid, Gabrielle Union and Emily Ratajkowski. It’s not fair that they all look cooler than me wearing them.
