Fall’s Biggest Fashion Trend Costs $0 to Follow

Fall’s Biggest Fashion Trend Costs $0 to Follow Monochromatic outfits were all over the fall 2019 runways and is one of the biggest trends of the season. 

We've grown fond of so-called "ugly shoes," like Crocs and Birkenstocks. But there's one bizarre footwear trend we simply can't wrap our head around: "big-toe shoes."

Not familiar with the term? This wacky shoe style is exactly what it sounds like: a pair of shoes that separates your big toe from the rest. And while the style has been somewhat under the radar for a while, Refinery29 just came up with the brilliant moniker and declared it a trend.

Depending on the style, big-toe shoes put your main tootsie on display in different ways. With sandals, your big toe gets its own slot. You know, in case you want to do a statement nail and show it off.

Gigi Hadid wore a Taylor Swift T-shirt with bike shorts and an oversized blazer that look like they belong in the '80s

Gigi Hadid wore a Taylor Swift T-shirt with bike shorts and an oversized blazer that look like they belong in the '80s While much of Gigi Hadid's ensemble was fashion-forward, her choice of footwear and shorts looked a bit outdated. Gigi Hadid brought the '80s back while walking around New York City this week. On Tuesday, the Victoria's Secret model stepped out wearing an oversized white blazer over a graphic T-shirt and black bike shorts. In my opinion, the ensemble looked like it could have been designed 35 years prior, especially because Hadid paired it with large white sunglasses, gold jewelry, chunky sneakers, and ankle-length socks.

Then there are closed-toe heels with an opening just for your big toe. To be quite honest, they look kind of uncomfortable.

Big-toe booties leave something to the imagination, separating your big toe from its siblings with a closed-toe look.

Then there are big-toe ballet flats, too. Because, well, why not?

The mere thought of having a makeshift cage for our big toes makes our feet curl up in horror.

It's a creative idea, and we appreciate anything that pushes the boundaries of fashion. But big-toe shoes look more painful than pretty.

There's really something for every personality.

Still, the style can be found in all corners of the world, and is reminiscent of the Japanese Jika-tabi, also known as tabi boots, a spin on split-toe Japanese tabi socks.

Earlier this year, GQ even predicted the style would rock the menswear world after Australian actor Cody Fern sported a pair of big-toe shoes at the Golden Globes.

But somehow, we doubt the trend will catch on.
