When the weather starts getting warm out, I get so excited to wear my spring and summer shoes! They are so much more fun then my winter pairs. This spring/ summer there are a few must-have styles that I think every woman needs to try out. Some are trend driven while others are everyday essentials. Plus, I've linked some of my favorites at a great price for you to easily shop below.
White shoes/ booties are the "it" shoes for spring/ summer! They look clean, cool, and are a great option to wear instead of the traditional black. Don't worry about getting white shoes dirty either because there are simple ways to clean them. Take an old toothbrush and some baking soda then rub them down. Rinse and repeat and your shoes will be sparkly white again.
Try untraditional materials like patent leather that up the 'cool' factor. Shoe styles like kitten heels, sling backs, pointy pumps, block heel, mules, and booties are all great options for white shoe styles. Shop some of my favorites below!
Denim fabrics go way beyond clothing these days. I love denim accessories like shoes and bags. These peep toe booties are a great example of denim shoes because they are a light color denim, which make them more spring forward. Look for special details when looking for denim shoes like tassels, frayed edges, hardware, and heel shape. Denim is a staple in the U.S. culture and goes well with everything so you don't have to worry about mis-matching. Shop these exact pair HERE!
Peep Toe Booties:
It's not quite summer, but not winter so what do you wear that's perfect for in between. These booties keep your feet warm but you can show off your pedicure too. Booties these days are an all year round kind of shoe. The only difference once the weather warms up is showing a little extra skin. I recommend looking for booties with a little extra detail like lace up, metal buckles, interesting heel shape, and cool fabrics. Shop these exact pair HERE
Flats are an everyday essential, especially if you live in a city where walking is a must. But flats don't need to be so boring or basic. This spring/ summer, look for a fun printed pair. I love floral pairs like this Betsey Johnson pair because the colors are great and they have a little extra something with the crystals. Floral, stripe, animal, and polka dot prints are also another fun alternative. Shop some of my favorites below
Mules are still going strong so grab another pair this spring or even your first! Trust me, I lived in my mules last summer. I recommend investing in a pair that are 1-3 inch block heel. The block heel style makes it much easier to walk in all day and keeps your balance. I also love mules that are embellished! Whether it’s pearls, crystals, or a broach spice it up. Another alternative are getting a pair with a fun fabric. Today, mules come is satin, linen, patent leather, and suede. Shop some of my favorites below!
Platforms and Espadrilles:
Fashion always repeats itself and platforms are back and here to stay for a while. Surprisingly, platforms are also easy to walk in. They provide the foot an extra cushion of support. They also give you height (which I have no problem with haha). Platforms are great flat shoes as well as fancy party heels.
Espadrilles are a summer classic! Perfect for vacations, the beach, or just a weekend walk. The natural earthy looks gives an instant summer feel. Plus they are comfortable and let your feet breathe.
A trendy heel that is actually walkable. I have no complaints about that. Kitten heels were very trendy back in the 40's and 50's and they are back! Kitten heels today have been modernized and come in cooler heel shapes like a cube, clear, or even a ball shape. They are a great heel option for the office or any other event.
