    No they are classic and they’ve had a resurgence for a few years now.  I like the ones that have a smaller peep toe. I’m not a fan of the wide opening where more than a couple of toes sticking out, in that case I’d rather just wear a strappy sandal. Emphasis on the “peep” I guess.

    Mine are peep toe.  I didn’t really want peep toe – not because I don’t love them (I do) but I just wanted a full toe for my wedding shoe.  However I was determined to have sexy purple sparkly shoes and these were the only ones I could find and I LOVE them!

    I always thought peep toes were a classic look.  The chances of me wearing them at my wedding are pretty high.  I have wide feet and toes, and it’s really hard for me to find comfortable closed-toe heels, but peep toes tend to fit me better.

    Yes, they are a trend, and yes, they’ve been a trend before.

    Trends cycle in and out. Each iteration is different than before.

    This is why people trying to help others declutter tell people “will acid wash jeans/bell bottoms/zebra print/etc. come back in? Yes, but if you’re saving these for then, forget it… it will come back in in a different form.” ….and that’s 100% correct, every time a trend cycles back it wants to be ‘new and fresh’ so it will always have a slighlty different take on it (especially if the cycle is close…i.e., less tha 20 years have passed since the previous iteration).

    I’m not saying throw them all out because they’re trendy though, because here’s the thing: That really only matters if you put it away in your closet just because it’s off-trend. If you still happily wear it when it’s off-trend, who cares if it cycles in and out of fashion?

    Most of my clothes are either classics or pieces I love, and the latter are usually not in fashion, because… well… only a small fraction of non-classics are in fashion at any given time, and just because they’re not right now, that doesn’t stop me from seeing something’s beauty. My “non-classics” don’t all come from a particular time period’s fad, they’re from all sorts. This makes me very happy!

    If you love peep toes, the only reason trends about it should matter to you is that there will be more selection of them during the height of trends, and there will be great disclunts to be had near the end of trends. It’s like loving cinnamon hearts or cadbury eggs… know your cycles, not to fit in, but to use them to your best advantage to add to your collection 🙂

    I dont think it’s a trend, more populat yes.  I would like to see some closed toes tho.  They shouldnt be this hard to find!

    ETA:  My favorite movie is from 1936 and Katharine Hebburn wore a gorgoeus pair of peep toes in a scene that I always always loved.  So trendy it is not.

    I don’t think so, they have been around for years.  Everyone has a personal taste on what kind of shoes/heels they like.  I love them myself

    I think it is a trend.  I am not a huge fan of them personally because they can’t/ shouldn’t be warn in winter (not with tights) so I tend to go for a shoe I get more out of.

    I have a pair of shoes that my grandmother gave me that are peep-toe, so I definitely wouldn’t call them a trend, lol.


    And yep, I did wear peep-toes for my wedding. 😉 However, I wasn’t particularly looking for peep-toes; I really just needed a wedge I could wear at my wedding with good height on it (I’m teeny tiny *and* my wedding was in the sand), and they’re hard to find!

    I don’t think it’s a trend, since you will find vintage peep toe shoes from at least the 40’s-current.  The sale of them/existence of them would have had to disappear for at least a 10 year time period for them to be considered a trend or resurgence thereof in my opinion.

    i literally never even considered that peep-toed shoes could be a trend?  I might be crazy but I’m pretty sure I’ve worn them my whole life??
