SHOE OBSESSION: SS 19 SHOE LOOKBOOK
This season, spring footwear will feel fresh and exuberant, with bold nuances of colour, texture, and architectural design coming into play. Classic shoe silhouettes meet off-the-runway trends with transparent vinyl, metallic hues, and bold animal print featured on must-have booties, mules, flats, and stiletto styles.
From rainbow brights to cool loafers, here are the top shoe trends to wear now.
Lucite-trimmed shoes are clear winners this spring. From the workplace to a night out, touches of this see-through detail will make a major statement every time. Try this trend as a two-banded slide or a pointy stiletto accented by snakeskin or neutral tones.
2. WESTERN VIBES
This season, head west for a fresh take on the rugged trend. Get the western look in the form of a stack-heeled ankle boot, ruched shootie, and variations of the slide. From daytime casual or work, a western-inspired shoe will break up a more streamlined ensemble.
3. 24/7 LOAFERS
Take things down a notch in a pair of loafers that can be worn both casually for the weekend and as a stylish shoe option for the office. This spring, the flat shoe is updated by either a pointy toe, horsebit hardware, or a collapsible back heel. Elevate your outfit with an oversized blazer or tote.
4. RAINBOW BRIGHTS
The future is looking bright for spring footwear. From sunny yellow and dazzling turquoise to tomato red and vivid coral, a contrasted pump or sandal is a great way to make a bold statement. Balance things out with a neutral ensemble, or go for the unexpected with a monochromatic look.
5. MULES RULE
Mules have become a strong trend in the last few seasons, and this spring is no exception. This season, get your hands on a pair of chic mules with a refined pointy toe or an intriguing heel shape. Get ready to amp up your spring dresses and tailed trousers with this slide-on-and-go style.
6. ON POINT STILETTOS
Coming in sharp for spring is the classic pointy stiletto. From multi-strap detailing to oversized buckles, this standout heel is sure to make a point. Pair a pointy stiletto with jeans or a brunch-ready jumpsuit to take your outfit from average to edgy.
Add a touch of luxe with bold metallics. New colours like blue, yellow, and pink have made this decadent trend fun, electric, and perfect for day-to-night dressing. Add a daring twist to your neutral tops and dresses with a pair of metallic sandals.
8. BARELY THERE SANDALS
Dainty, very thin straps and neutral hues are used to mimic a “barely there” look. The springtime version of the nude shoe, the barely there strappy sandal will create the illusion of a longer and leaner silhouette, making it a stunning option to pair with dresses and skirts.
9. POINTY FLATS
Meet the flattering and elongating shoe that can be worn for both the workplace and a cocktail party. Modern details such as scalloped edges, ankle straps, and front bows will add a feminine twist to the beloved pointy flat.
10. SNAKE CHARMERS
Take a walk on the wild side with the texture that has the flexibility of being both neutral and bold, pairing well with most colours. This spring, get spotted in a transparent pump or a pointy toe mule in this fierce print.
