If you’re like me, you look forward to the start of each new season with great anticipation for the clothing and accessories that will define it. But there’s another category of items that get overlooked: shoes! Even if you’re not planning to update your wardrobe this spring, at some point in the next few months, you’ll probably want a new pair of kicks to complement your outfits. To help you out, here are eight major shoe trends to keep an eye out for this spring!
1) Statement Shoes
Statement shoes are all the rage this season, and it’s easy to see why. When they’re paired with a simple outfit, they can make you feel like you’re wearing a designer outfit even if you’re not. Plus, they’re great for adding personality to your look.
2) Upgraded Classics
The classic look will never go out of style, and this season’s fashion trends are all about taking old favorites and making them new again. One of the most popular shoe styles this spring is the loafer. These shoes are perfect for any guy looking to get a little more dressed up, or who wants to make a more formal statement without wearing dress shoes. Loafers come in a variety of materials from leather to suede and can be worn with almost any outfit.
3) Two Toned Shoes
Two-toned shoes may seem like a fad, but we think they’re here to stay. These shoes are perfect for those who want to look chic without being too ostentatious. If you’re going two-toned this season, try pairing a light shoe with a darker one for a classic and sophisticated look that is sure to turn heads.
4) Platforms are Back
Platforms are making a comeback in the fashion world and they are perfect for flirty, feminine looks. Think of them as the next big thing you need to try out this season! Platforms come in all shapes, sizes and heights, so there’s something for everyone. They can be both dressy or casual depending on your outfit. Platforms have also been trending for years now and will continue to be popular for years to come!
5) Slip on Comfort
The slip on comfort trend is here to stay. These slides are perfect for a day at the beach, a day at the park, or just lounging around in your PJs. They’re easy to slip on and off, meaning you can be sure that your feet will always stay happy. This is great for transitioning from one season to another because when it’s time for cooler weather, all you have to do is swap out your sandals for these cozy slippers.
6) Layers of Color
The idea behind layering colors is to not just have one color on your feet, but to mix and match shades in order to give your shoes a bit more of a statement. An easy way to do this is with a neutral shoe like a white sneaker with blue or pink laces.
7) Flatforms Are In
Flatforms have made a big comeback, and they’re here to stay. We’ve seen them on runways and on the streets, with celebs like Beyonce, Gigi Hadid, and Kylie Jenner all sporting them. This trend is perfect for girls who love being comfortable while looking stylish!
8) Heels with Cute Details
Heels with cute details are all the rage this spring, and they’re perfect for adding a little fun to your look. Whether you like bows, buckles, straps or anything else in between, these shoes will take your outfit to the next level. Plus, they’re super comfortable and easy to walk in!
