Trend Spotter: Spats

Engreida spotted a Spats trend on Polyvore that she thinks is "darling!" So what are spats, you ask? They're an accessory that covers the top of shoes that first became popular in the late 19th century. Today, you can find shoes that have a built-in look or you can buy removable spats, like these from Dekkori that can be worn on any pair of shoes you have. Serena wore a pair of spats on an episode of Gossip Girl:

We're obsessed with spats at Fashion Me Fabulous. We've found some great Etsy shops that sell them as we can't afford the designer versions.

Thank you again Poly! I'm in awe of everybody's talent here! XOXO

Well done for spotting this trend Engreida, should be big next season - by the way, we have some traditional men's spats at ShopCurious

Hi

Good information and they are an accessory that covers the top of shoes that first became popular in the late 19th century.
