Of course, we all love shoes. Every season we see something new, and I love to at least try them on. This Indiana Wardrobe Stylist loves pointy shoes. They will always be in, and who doesn’t love them? I like the way they give someone height and even slimness. I have them in a variety of colors, my most favorite being a yellow suede pair and a black and white gingham pair of slides with a cute little bow.
Indiana Wardrobe Stylist Breaks Down The Spring Shoe Styles To Watch Out For
We are starting to see more square-toe shoes. This first appeared a couple of years ago, my I am seeing more and more. We saw square toe ballet flats on the runways in pastel and other pretty print. Here is pair from Sam Edelman I recently purchased. I love them, and though they look like ballet flats they are actually slides.
We will continue to see loafers – with more of a chunky heel. Here is an example of a python print from Nordstrom.
Move over stilettos, the chunk heels are here to make an impact. Not only for added stability, but they have a very bold look to them.
Even these patent slides that are very dressy and elegant are also going to be popular, and we’re seeing more and more with chunky heels. I really like these because they are minimal but really make a statement. Believe it or not, even in summer, you may find you need a black dressy shoe. This pretty much fits the bill. If you don’t have a pair of slides, I recommend you try them. I have really decided I love them. I have very narrow insteps so I didn’t think I could keep them on. But that wasn’t the case. With shoes that a little out of the ordinary for you, I recommend you try them on in the store instead of ordering them online.
Pink Shoes & Sandals
Since pink is so popular this year, we will see pink shoes galore. I think it’s an easy way to wear the trend without overwhelming your outfit if you’re not a fan of pink. I like these flip-flops because they are elevated somewhat — they are pink (a trend), and they have pearls on them (also a trend).
We all love flip flops and slides, but this season look for a dressier version with either a platform or stiletto heel. You can wear these shoes with anything, from casual to dressy. Here’s a pretty pink slide with a platform by Gucci.
In line with the comfort and work-at-home craze and trend, we’re going to see people wearing these fuzzy sandals. They are part bedroom slipper and part chunky sandals. They are everywhere! Check out these on Amazon.
Sneakers will still be big. If you don’t have a fun pair of sneakers, not running shoes or shoes for a particular sport, you need to purchase some. As an Indiana Wardrobe Stylist, I recommend to many women to find a pair of dressy sneakers. You might ask, how can I wear them? They are more versatile than you think. I wear them with any outfit that is slightly more casual. I would not wear sneakers with a formal dress. I do wear, and would, wear them with casual knit T-shirt dresses, jeans, cotton summer dress, or a wintery knit dress, the key is that the outfit has to learn toward casual. These Kate Spade sneakers aren’t made for playing in. The simple white will match almost any outfit.
Clogs & Platforms
We seem to be reverting to the 90s in many ways this season, and for some, that means wearing clogs; yes, I said clogs. Here is a cute pair for summer that are not as heavy: These are by designer Veronica Beard (I usually think of her for her amazing jackets.)
Platforms are also making a comeback. They give you so much more unique area than a plain flip-flop. Gotta love the leopard print from Kate Spade.
