Question: What are the hottest spring shoe trends?
Answer: So the groundhog saw his shadow, which means a longer winter is in store. This couldn’t be any more true since this winter is totally dragging on! One way to help lessen the blow of the winter blues is by checking out these amazing spring pieces that are totally trending, and if you’re a shoe junkie, these spring shoe trends are a sight for sore eyes this upcoming season:
1. Cut-out booties
Heeled ankle booties were a fall and winter staple, but they’ve been brought into the spring season by having cut outs either at the heel or on the sides of the boot. These can be worn with skinny jeans, pants or a cute skirt.
2. Flats with an ankle strap
Flats are really stepping up their game with ankle straps. It’s almost like wearing a Mary Jane style pump without the heel, so if heels aren’t your thing, you can still look uber trendy in these flats.
3. Laser cut oxfords
This is an incredibly hot trend that has been popping up everywhere lately. Oxfords may seem like your grandfather’s shoe, but they’re extremely trendy for guys—and now, us gals. By adding pretty laser cut designs, this shoe is less formal and more chic. They’re great for warmer weather too, since the cut outs will help your feet breathe.
If your first thought when reading the word “Chukka” was “Bless you”, let me explain: chukkas are a suede or leather low-rise ankle boot/oxford shoe that look absolutely adorable with some rolled boyfriend jeans or your favorite skinnys. They’re preppy, yet totally trendy and a spring must-have.
5. Cage heeled sandals
Caged sandals were really popular last season, but they’re coming back with a vengeance this spring. Super-strappy heels that cut off at your ankles are totally sexy and edgy. Some styles even come with laces to add a fun twist to the style.
6. Two-toned anything
Flats, sandals, pumps—you name it. Shoes with two or even three tones are the thing this spring. I especially love shoes that are both nude and black, as they make accessorizing with brown and black leathers even easier. Choosing a two-toned shoe also helps break up the monotony of a single color, drawing more attention to your new kicks.
