Shoes this spring are fun, flirty, feminine and artistic – something for every fashionista to enjoy. Updating your wardrobe with a few pairs of trendy sandals is one of the best ways to look fresh without giving your entire closet an overhaul. Choosing which look you want to rock will be easier if you assess your spring wardrobe first. Get the biggest bang for your buck by purchasing new shoes that will complement your existing style. Here’s a look at some of the latest spring trends in women’s shoes:
Pop of color or color block are the buzz phrases for sandals this spring. Whether the entire shoe is a bright color or just one element such as the strap, the heel or a big bright bow, sandals with a pop of color will bring your spring wardrobe to life and carry right on through fall. If your style is super trendy look for color-blocked shoes in neon colors a la 1985 or stick with one of this year’s popular shades of orange.
This spring welcomes a modern version of the stacked or chunky heel we knew and loved in the 1970s. The new incarnation of this style is sans platform, giving them Pop of Colora sleeker, sexier look. But beware that without the platform you’ll feel every inch of those high heels. If you love a tall shoe, leave your stilettos in the closet this spring and summer and wear a stacked-heel sandal instead.
Black and White
Black and white clothing is one of the trendiest things to walk off the runway this spring. And what goes with a black and white dress better than a black and white shoe? Nothing. Look for black and whites in color-block styles with the majority of the shoe in one color and a strap or heel in the other for an interesting contrast.
Wedges are some of the most comfortable shoes to walk in and this spring wedge sandals are everywhere. Look for them in natural materials like jute espadrilles or cork. The color-block wedge combines the classic spring/summer look of a wedge sandal with the pop-of-color trend of the moment. Whether you prefer a low heel or you like them sky-high, you’ll find a modern wedge to fit your style this spring.
The T-strap sandal is a standard look for spring and summer. The “T” is formed by the ankle strap and the thong that fits between your toes. But this spring the T-strap’s literally been turned on its head. The inverted-T styles are edgier and modern. Inverted T-strap give a nod to the gladiator sandals of last year, but are daintier and easier to wear. Look for T-straps with color blocking for a real one-two punch of style.
Sandals are versatile and can be worn with all your favorite spring and summer clothes from jeans and tank tops to party dresses, and with the right outfit, even in the office. Sandals can be sexy, chic or sweet, and everyone woman should have at least one flat and one heeled sandal in her shoe wardrobe. Jump into fashion with both feet and find a new pair of trendy sandals to fit your style.
