There is a LOT happening in the world right now with the coronavirus pandemic and anxiety-inducing headlines. And while it's important to stay informed and make sure you're social-distancing to keep yourself and others safe, the round-the-clock influx of news can really take a toll on your health. I try and make time every day to read about something else to allow my mind to rest from all the stress, and if you're a shoe person, consider this my gift to you.

Introducing, shoe trends you'll want to wear immediately—yes, you can still wear them around your house, why not? From comfy sliders to strappy sandals, we're shopping for the shoes that will take us through all the season's commitments—even (and especially!) if one of them is a long-overdue vacation. Keep scrolling for the pairs that have us looking forward to days ahead.

The Festive Flats

As soon as the lockdown ends, celebratory occasions will soon pop up. Your best friend might announce her engagement or a couple in your family might be celebrating their newborn’s arrival. You may not get a month’s notice prior to these sudden happenings. My point? Your festive wardrobe should be at the ready which includes a diverse array of footwear.

These embellished, soft pink sliders won’t be forgotten. They’re one eye-catcher that’ll get an abundance of appreciative glances from the ladies with good taste. Pair them with a pastel hued eastern ensemble preferably contrasted with some silver embroidery.

Never underestimate the importance of a golden accessory! These dull-gold flats are a friend in need, compatible with almost any outfit that has a hint of golden hue. You don’t need high-heels to up your game at a formal event, just the right pair of flats like the ones I've picked out for you.

The Daily-wears

You always need a few pairs to slide in for the entire day. No matter how glammed up you want to be, you want your feet to be at ease during your routine hours. But, it does not mean you would wear anything. Here are some suggestions for daily wear shoes:

FYI, animal patterns have taken over the fashion world once again! From snake-skin textured accessories to zebra prints and leopard spots, the wilderness has been injecting some major inspiration in fashion.

Not only will these leopard-print sliders add more character to your every-day look, they're easy-wear and even easier to pair with black jeans and a contrasting top.

We’ve all got to deal with some snake-skins every day (pun-intended), but you’ll definitely fall in love with these textured beauts. Bonus points if you can grab a snake-skin printed bag to bring more charisma to the look.

The epitome of “comfy yet trendy”, sliders rule the casual kingdom! Going out with the gang? Working-Saturday taking a toll on you? Pull up your jeans, your favorite slogan-tee and slide into a pair of chic sliders. Don’t restrict these staples to your western attire though, they can do just as much justice to your ethnic wardrobe.

With so much time on your hand I am sure you must have planned out a vacation to an island resort for when times get better. These trendy slippers are a must have for your packing checklist.

For when you head back to work, grab yourselves a nice pair or two of closed toe shoes. These allow you to bring those summer vibes to a more formal workplace environment.

The Traditional List

When it comes to flats, our traditional footwear for women are the OG! From the ancient Indus civilization to the chic Mughal era, you can find plenty of flats. However, Ideas Pret has innovated on these traditional designs and you must have these for your shoe closet.

They’ve always been there as an ethnic-wear but fashion knows no limits. What’s new? Kolah-puris have made peace with western apparel. They’re no longer just an eastern thing, owing to novel designs that exhibit a more contemporary panache.

Thong-slippers are a style-statement that can’t be ignored or abandoned! They’ve been there and will always be there. In fact, the right pair can actually take you from desk-to-dinner quite smoothly.

Please don’t speak to me if you don’t own at least a couple of black outfits! Your monochromes need to be paired with noir footwear and believe you me, these black beauties are must-haves in the black-list this season.

This season, make sure your shoes are flattering! With Ideas Pret, you will always get the latest trends of women footwear. I know I have shared quite a few designs in this edit; however, I want you to show us your styling aesthetics. Tag #ideaspret and show us how you are wearing our latest designs on Instagram.
