Sydney Fashion Week Wants Us To Mix And Match Our Footwear

Accessories

Mismatched footwear was all the rage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia

Season after season, a number of new and resurfacing footwear trends emerge from the runways of fashion weeks all over the world. Whether a square toe, a kitten heel, or the latest iteration of the ugly-cute shoe, what's considered "in" for footwear is ever-changing.

However, earlier this week at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia in Sydney, we saw a pretty interesting trend emerge from the runways, one that's more of a styling technique than a fabric or silhouette: mixing and matching footwear.

At multiple shows, we saw models donning totally different looks on each foot. A model at Bec + Bridge paired an over-the-knee white boot with its identical counterpart in black, while P.E Nation dressed numerous models in mismatched Chuck Taylors and combat boots. Double Rainbouu took a less in-your-face approach by pairing knee-high socks of different colors with its chunky Resort pool slides.

Okay, fine—it's not necessarily as "out-there" as, let's say, pairing a block-heeled mule with a grandpa sneaker. That would just be ridiculous. This trend allows for a bit of quirky fun when it comes to getting dressed while still being practical. And lucky for us, we don't necessarily need to go out and buy the latest It shoe—we can work with what we already have.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
