Your Guide To The Top 10 Spring/Summer Shoe Must-Haves

Every year we wait eagerly to see what the trends will be come spring and summer, “will those high-waisted denim cut-offs still be trendy? What about those wedged sneakers?” Nothing is more infuriating than investing in something that’s only stylish for a short season before it becomes a faux pas. One season might be sporty and athletic, another might be minimalistic and simple.

This year is no different. We saw colors, suede and texture on the runways this year along with some major street style vibes from fashion bloggers world wide, and it all seems to point in one direction (R.I literal P Zayne?). Apart from still having a foot in the norm core scene, trends seem to swinging back towards a more feminine approach to style with a sprinkling of that 70’s gamine look with a smack of bohemian.

That’s not to say we’ll all be walking around with flowers and feathers in our hair (although nothing surprises me anymore), but you’ll be seeing suede everything, denim everything and white embroidered everything. Along with all of this, naturally, comes the shoes. Though I wouldn’t suggest purchasing 10 pairs of shoes (for your banks sake), I would look at these and find similar items that speak to this seasons trends.

The Dreamy Weekender Look

Check out this weekend style outfit inspiration!

I’m having a major obsessive moment with all things cotton, lace and pretty. What I love about tops that have those details is that they’re so soft, feminine and dreamy. You could style them to be sexy (think pencil skirt, major heels) or down to earth (think denim and leather booties).

Due to the awful weather we’ve been having, I’m also kind of obsessed with being really cozy and warm. (Who am I kidding, I always want to be cozy.) Since it’s spring time you want to start shifting away from wearing very heavy, wintery sweaters that don’t necessarily speak of spring, or the coming summer. For this dilemma, I’ve switched over into wearing cardigans of all shapes and sizes though I keep the colors fresh, light and away from too many heavy wintery colors like browns, dark yellows, and reds. Go fresh with greens, creams, blues, bright reds etc.

Wear some dazzling feminine esq earrings, nude heels (for a fresh look) and a great bucket bag.
