Trend Report: Spring Shoes

 

Trend Report: A Sneak Peak at This Spring’s Shoes

By Kate Jansen

This spring’s shoe styles are edgy to say the least. Check out this list of this season’s must-have shoes:

Black and white: Contrast colors have already been a highlight of many designers’ spring look books. White and black patterns, prints and textures on shoes can make a bold statement. Ease into spring by pairing black and white shoes with bright pants and a flowy blouse.

Loafer with a twist: Last fall’s loafer obsession has not burned out just yet. This spring, designers are coming out with fun, preppy loafers in a variety of patterns and colors. I absolutely love Piperlime’s selection of loafers. J. Crew also has their Darby Leather Loafer collection that features a variety of neon hues.

The ankle strap: This look has made its way into the design of pumps, flats and sandals. What I love most about the ankle strap look is that it can be dressed up or down. Paired with light-washed skinny ankle jeans and a loose-fitting top can add a chic dimension to an everyday outfit. For a more formal look, pair these shoes with a sundress or flowy skirt.

Fashion sneakers: This spring’s fashion sneakers feature lots of metallic, studs and–dare I say–Velcro. Flipping through fashion blogs and retail websites reminds me a little of middle school. This spring’s latest trend has put a spotlight on high-top, high-heeled sneakers. Personally, I think that the most unique designs are from Superga, Ash and DKNY.
