Instagram's Latest Trouser and Sandal Trend Is Literally Genius

Whoever cooked this one up is a style genius.

We are not quite sure who woke up one day and decided to make this trend a thing – but it’s officially a thang. Lace-up sandals, worn tied over ones trousers or jeans, is the micro-trend and secret styling trick every cool girl worth her salt is trying out right now.

We can respect the fact that a true fashion girl never wants to hide a really good pair of shoes, so this new styling hack is perfect to flaunt your shoe candy.

If you can’t quite picture it – this is what we are referring to…

LBH, we absolutely love it when a slightly unusual styling trick emerges from the gram to get us all excited to try something new.

1. Mom Jean

If your gonna try this trend, a slightly wider cut is your best bet, to allow for the bunched up effect around the ankle.

2. Strappy Heel

Opt for a sandal with a longer tie, the added perk to this trend that your shoes will also feel more secure around your ankle, as you will be able to tie it a lot tighter than usual.
