It’s hard to tell a girl she has enough shoes, because just like clothing trends, shoe trends change from season to season and that means you’ll need to update your shoe wardrobe.
Spring 2016 is gonna be full of killer trends, some with a die hard following like the white sneaker and some with a more love/hate crowd, like the awkward Grandma heel. The good thing is that a lot of the trend you fell in love with in 2015 will still be around, like your fave over-the-knee boots and lace-up heels, but they’ll be done in a different way. Think lighter colors, bolder laces and interesting heel shapes. It’s not about copying the trends from season to season, but expanding on the ones that worked and making them into something completely different.
Go a little cray cray with your next shoe purchase and break out of your shoe rut. Here are some awesome on-trend shoes you’ll love for Spring.
Grandma Heels are here for Spring, whether you like it or not. Think low-to-mid heel height, rounded toes, and mules. Don’t be afraid to pair this style with something with a little bit of an edge so you can balance out the frumpiness of it.
Suede Pumps (H&M, $60)
The Dani Fringed Mule (Madewell, $188)
Faux Patent Leather Ankle Strap Flats (Forever21, $25)
I love me a good pair of slip-ons, and I worn my only pair to death so looks like mama needs a new pair of shoes. The difference between Spring 2016’s version of slip-ons than other years’ is that these shoes will make a statement. They aren’t your typical black Vans.
Slip-on Shoes (H&M, $40)
Ash Jungle Leather Slip-On Sneakers (Saks Off 5th, $70)
Marc by Marc Jacobs Low-tops (YOOX, $250)
It shouldn’t be a surprise that metallic shoes are as in for Spring as they will be for Fall (according to the runways). Metallic shoes done in different ways are a great way to add visual interest to an outfit without pushing your comfort zone into bold colors.
Low Shaft Boots (& Other Stories, $145)
Metallic Flat Shoes with Brogue Detail (Zara, $50)
ATELJE 71 Quasar metallic leather pumps (The Outnet, $130)
