Now that it’s springtime and the sun is shining, there’s no better way to celebrate the season than with some new shoes! It’s good to treat yourself every now and then to some fabulous footwear that you just can’t say no to. After all, Coco Chanel once famously said, “A woman with good shoes is never ugly,” so it’s difficult to disagree!
Must-Have Spring Style Shoes
To really nail spring style, changing out your shoes is one of the easiest ways to move away from winter wear and into flirty spring fashion. According to the runway reports and all of the style muses we see day in and day out—whether they are celebrities, fashion bloggers, or just everyday people with impeccable style—there are some must-have shoes for ultimate spring style this year.
If you are ready to get that essential spring look this season, then look no further than the below shoes that will completely update your outfit from drab to fab and ready for fun days in the sun!
No matter if you are a lover of flats or heels, you can wear the lace-up trend with no problem. Lace-ups are just about everywhere, so they are definitely a must-have for spring. TODAY has named these shoes as one of the top four spring shoe trends—choose a lace-up espadrille, ballet flat, or sexy stiletto to complete just about any outfit.
2. Fashion Sneakers
Sneakers and trainers have come a long way from their previous place as strictly streetwear. Now sneakers have completely crossed over into high-fashion markets, making them a truly chic footwear choice. Even Lyst has a “Guide to Sneaker Chic” that shows you can wear these shoes with flowing spring maxi skirts to make them look totally feminine yet cool. Read the guide here.
If you don’t like to put a lot of effort into your fashion or you always err on the side of comfort, you are going to fall in love with this trend! Slip-ons are a huge hit this season, taking a clue from slippers we wear around the house but just a bit more daytime-appropriate. You can see in NY Daily News that one style from Balenciaga is reminiscent of Chinese embroidered slippers that were popular back in the ‘90s. But you know what they say: History (and fashion) repeats itself!
4. Chunky Sandals
Here’s some good news for girls who love flats but still want a little height! Chunky sandals are in this spring, and many are mixed with flatform styles, which are like platforms but without heels. Basically the whole sole of the shoe is just lifted a few inches. As you can see on WhoWhatWear, some of the chunky sandals trending are a little bit bulky, so you should try to mix them in with girly spring styles to perfect the look.
These four shoe styles are definitely going to update your spring wardrobe and give you a chic look. You can mix them in with all kinds of spring clothes, so the possibilities really are endless! And remember that it’s OK to treat yourself every now and then… especially when it comes to shoes.
