Spring Footwear Shopping Guide
Posted: Mar 06 2015
This spring’s footwear theme is “anything goes!” Designers showed a range of looks from retro platforms to sky-high stilettos, lace-up sneakers to stylish flats — especially great news for those who put comfort above all else.
With such a wide-open playing field, we’ve put together your shoe shopping game plan.
This is one shoe trend that’s come and gone over the last few years, understandably. These lace-up sandals look ornate, pulled together and make legs look long and lean. From high-heeled or flat options to metallic leather, knee-length or ankle bootie variations, be sure to tie them on (again) this season.
When to wear them: Depending on the style you purchase, this look can travel through different parts of your life but we really love the idea of wearing a heeled style with a simple work dress.
For spring, last season’s sporty look carried over in the form of colorful sneakers. Bright colors and unusual color combinations were the main trend but metallic materials, mesh details and glittery ornaments also popped up.
When to wear them: Although some of the sneaker styles got pretty fancy, this look is strictly for weekend casual outfits.
Sandals, oxfords, pointy ballet shoes, cowboy-inspired… all styles of flats are in this season, to the delight of women everywhere. Whatever style you choose, be sure to pick up a pair with fun details like fringe or bows.
When to wear them: Flats are a great option for work or weekend. The only place we won’t wear them is after hours for happy hour or a cocktail party.
