Step Out Of Winter And Into Spring

Spring has sprung!  I celebrate the blessed day when I get to trade out my thick wool socks for lovely sandals and pretty flats.  New spring shoes are an easy way to add new life to your wintery wardrobe. Here are some shoe trends that are worth looking into this 2016 spring season. 

Lace Up Flats

Lace up flats came onto the scene last year but the trend doesn't seem to be dying down.  This spring, you will see more colorful versions of the classic lace up we saw in the autumn and winter.  Muted styles in blush and gray as well as patterned lace ups will add a pop of spring to any outfit.  Lace up flats pair perfectly with jeans, skirts, leggings, and little dresses.  If you are like me, you will be sure to wear out your own pair because you will find yourself wearing them with practically everything!

Pop Of Color Flats

A quick and easy way to transition your wardrobe from winter to spring is by adding a pop of color in your footwear.  This year, colored flats will be seen in almost every color.  The pointy style flat is a good choice because it elongates your legs and can add class to any outfit.  This style looks great with pencil skirts, ripped jeans, and patterned ankle trousers.  Pair your bright shoes with colorful scarves, shirts, and play dresses or add a pair to spruce up a neutral look.

Spring Bootie

"These boots were made for walkin, and that's just what they'll do.  One of these days, these boots are gonna become your new boo".  The bootie has quickly become a closet essential all year long.  This season you will see your typical bootie get a spring makeover using mesh and cut outs.  Breatheable booties are just as versatile as their fall and winter versions.  To get the most mileage you can this spring, choose a pair that has a low heel and in a neutral color such as nude, gray, or black.  These cute booties will add a little edge to delicate dresses, boyfriend jeans, and pastel colored tops and accessories.

Flatbed Sandals

These comfortable sandals made their come back a few years ago but they have stuck around for the long haul.  They have grown in popularity because of their convenience as well as their ability to turn any look into something that looks cool and casual.  When figuring out all the ways to wear these babies, think of them as the "cool sneaker" version of a sandal.  That means they look great with joggers, boyfriend jeans, and can be worn easily with athleisure wear.  This season, in addition to the classic styles we saw last year, you will see bright whites, metallics, and feminine floral patterns.  If you have been toying with the idea of owning your own pair, this season is the season to go for it!
