Q- What are some of your favorite shoe trends for Spring?
–Amy R. Atlanta
The wedge always comes back for Spring/Summer, so I never get rid of mine. Though this season’s version has a lot more attitude: it’s a wedge-slash-boot (or a boot with a wedge). Just take a look at the Margiela pair from Saks— hot with shorts and dresses!!
Another shoe with a lot of attitude is the open-toe ankle boot. It’s amazing how a little detail like the peep-toe can magically transform the ankle boot into something more feminine!
Check out this Lace Up Open-toe Bootie from Wet Seal ($32.50).
Of course platforms are still strong for Spring; they work really well with this seasons floral trends. Pick platforms in the brightest hues, particularly orange-red. If you’re not in the mood for bold color, then go the polar opposite: nude. Shoes in nudes or neutrals, whether they’re pumps, platforms, or sandals, are strong this season.
And what about the details? It’s a happy mishmash of details for spring shoes. Look for feminine frills, lace-ups, straps, glam details or sexy-tough cut-outs—just like this pair from Forever 21, the Mystery Platform Heels ( a steal at just $22.80).
