Over at The Fashion Police, I write a lot about what I refer to as the “Dress Like a Toddler Trend” – i.e. adults wearing clothes which look like they’d be much more at home on a small child. Hats with ears and anything that can be described as a “onesie” all fit into this category, and so, I would argue, do these shoes. OK, they may not be quite right on a toddler, exactly, but I had several pairs of shoes that looked very much like these when I wasn’t much older than that, and when I came across them on the Topshop website, I actually thought I’d stumbled onto a site for children’s clothes instead.
From this, you can probably tell that I’m not keen on this look at all, and I think it would take some clever styling for these not to infantilize their wearer in one easy move. Could you do it, do you think? What would you wear with them, if so?
