Patent leather has been around for ages. Right now it is on the upswing. I personally consider it timeless. I just bought these and plan to wear for time to come:

I think patent is timeless when it is simple like those Louboutins^^^

The cheetah bow Louboutin is too trendy- I say get a pair like the ones above- especially if you are going to spend a couple hundred on them! ;)

I think patent leather used to be more trendy, but now, and since last year, we are seeing so much of it, I think it is going to be more of a staple. I know I don't want to give it up because it gives me more fashion options. I don't think now going forward it won't be on anyones "out" lists - if is it, I will wear it anyway. Similiar for leopard prints. I don't think they can ever be "out".

IMO It all depends on the design of the shoe and the outfit you wear it with. Those shoes are very cute and the design isn't too overpowering.

i think it's cyclical. black patent leather will always be in, not sure about the brighter colors though.
