For Spring it is of course all about color and print…and black, and white, and metallic, and pastel, and ruffles, and chunky heels, etc. Almost everything seems to be in for spring, but here are some of my new favorites to try. Remember, shape and styling are extremely important this season!
-The chunky heel. It is my favorite heel of all time. Whether it is high or low it should make any outfit look very modern and you can still manage to walk around all day or evening without complaining. It is the perfect shoe for day to evening. The key to not making this look like you grandmother’s you ask? Style it with jeans, a leather skirt, a fitted pencil skirt, a printed skinny jean or ankle length skinny trouser.
-Try white or metallic shoes. They will go with almost anything you wear this spring and summer. The shoe does not need to be expensive, but make sure it doesn’t look like you only spent $29.99. There is nothing worse than a cheap looking white shoe, remember the 80’s? Keep the shape modern, in white a little strappier, but maybe with a chunky heel, is going to work better. I would probably stay away from a traditional pump or stiletto for most people.
-Global inspired prints in clothing and shoes are everywhere this season. Try the gladiator sandal, and if you are daring, do the straps up the leg. Also a beautiful embroidered top or jacket will be necessary this Spring. All 3 of these pieces will add instant glamour to any outfit. Just be careful to keep the styling at a minimum. Really showcase a top or jacket and then add the shoe for a little more embellishment. Jewelry should also be simple.
