Oh yay! With the weather thawing out, boots open up and toes come out for spring shoes. I can’t wait to shop for my favorite footwear trends for spring.
One of the biggest spring trends all over the runways was the mix of artistic prints. Abstract floral, brushstrokes and kaleidoscope patterns have made every fashion item a canvas. Spring shoes are no exception. Many designers on spring 2013 catwalks crafted shoes to coordinate to the patterns of the clothes. For my budget-friendly designer picks, you can’t go wrong with Prabal Garung’s pumps and laced up sandal in a “Nolita”print for Target (only $40). If you want something more romantic, go for Xhilaration’s dark floral Sae pumps for only $30.
The wedge was a big hit for fall and reconstructed in more spring friendly trims for the upcoming season. I love wedges because they are safer (for clumsy me) to walk in than your typical stiletto. Spring materials like cork, rattan, rope wood give it a bit of a warm rustic edge, while still keep styles sophisticated. You can mix up all sorts of colors, contrast trims and configurations with a pump. Stripes give you a nautical look, bows are ladylike and solid colors are bold enough for any spring dress. All these fun styles come from Merona, Xhilaration and Target’s shoe collection, starting at $17 and topping out at $75.
Are you ready to step out of your boots and into the sunshine? I am.
It’s Time for Springtime.
