Top sole designer Christian Louboutin once attributed the power of a woman’s image to her shoes. He said, “Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally.” We couldn’t agree more, most especially this Spring when you can expect the most beautiful soles to rock the most fashionable capitals around the world.
A Soulful Journey In Spring
Since a woman’s shoes are so important in creating her personality, image and, of course, her impeccable taste for fashion, shoes aren’t to be taken lightly. At the end of the day, you should find that sweet knot that bonds the most stylish women’s shoes for spring and your own character. Breathe a sigh of relief because we were just about getting ready to show you how exactly you can do that.
Here are your top tips for knowing what shoes to wear this Spring based on the style trends and what you should be wearing to stay fashionable this season:
1. Creepers and combat boots
This season, the 80s are just as much alive as the shades of the 50s and 60s. These two are among this season’s most fashion-forward footwear because of the return of the grunge and punk. As you turn back the clock to wear the most memorable fashion of the decade — high-waisted buggy pants folded at the hems, ripped jeans, patched denim and leather jackets, tees with folded up sleeves, and flowy A-line dresses — you got your creepers and combat boots to wear.
It’s easy to lose the age specs for this style so, if you’re 30 and beyond, make sure not to go overboard. Take inspiration from Fausto Puglisi and Coach for ideas on how to make this look trendy.
2. Velvet Pumps
This stylish pair comes in rich, deep shades of violets, reds, and blues. It’s a trend that sees its origins from last season’s finest so, chances are, you probably have this pair sitting in your shoe cabinet by now so don’t spring clean this pair just yet. If not, you should look for a pair with a satin lace up ribbon. That accent is one of the must-haves for your soles this season.
Wear your velvet with your skinnies and dresses, whether casual or formal. It’s important to get this shoes in store to make sure it doesn’t make you fall forward, particularly if it’s platform built.
3. Fur Accents
You can thank Gucci for popularizing this trend. Gucci added luxurious fur to its classic loafers lately and the idea sold out. Fur simply pampers your heels in much the same way that a Dermisa Skin Fade does for your face. If you can’t get hold of Gucci, there are other labels carrying the same style by now. If you prefer, you can even get your fur from what’s being called, “pompom shoes”. These are fur balls attached to any type of shoes, boots, heels, sneakers, stilettos — your choices are endless.
4. Laced up stilettos
"How can you live the high life if you do not wear the high heels?" Top designer, Sonia Rykiel, said so herself. Even when this Spring is all about comfort and convenience, it pays to wear those high heels if only to keep your posture and grace up.
This season, find inspiration in DSquared footwear. The unique, one-of-a-kind accents on the shoes and the lace up ribbons give your beautiful feet and legs a warm accent. Those calf-high bows will definitely call in attention. Feel free to wear this pair with your one-piece casual spring dresses or, keep it street style simple with your cropped jeans. In case you can’t already find a similarly accented pair of shoes, you know you can always DIY.
This Spring, any length of booties will look good on your summer outfits, even dare pair them up for a summer wedding you are headed to this season. Love them thigh high? Check out the very colorful and artistic take of Marc Jacobs on these booties. Pair with your mini skirts and skinnies. As for your ankle-length and calf-length booties, you might want to get them all white this season to pair with white asymmetrical dresses inspired by the booties seen on the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini runway.
