Nearly everyone had a ‘Nudist’ moment this year, putting their soles on full display in the Stuart Weitzman sandal that stomped red carpets across the globe.
An early frontrunner, it wasn’t long before we realized the power of the minimalist shoe and the love affair between starlets and their Stuarts, which played out over the entire year.
The sandal itself is so basic, but therein lies its magic.
Its versatility and its rainbow of colourways are all part of its charm. A stylist’s dream, it can be paired with everything from boyfriend jeans to ball gowns, although it was perhaps employed most liberally this year with daytime dresses and short cocktail frocks.
Yet, despite its popularity, the ‘Nudist’ sandal is rather modest indeed, letting the clothing take the lead while being the quietly perfect plus-one.
The heels had an embarrassment of outings, with Taylor Schilling, Sophia Bush, Elizabeth Banks and Judy Greer only a few of its fashionable fans.
The one requirement of this barely-there shoe? A good pedicure.
