Are you looking to better your shoe game this year?
With the commencement of spring, it’s officially time to ditch our winter shoe collection. In their place, we’re opting for something a little more lightweight. From platforms and heels to sandals and slides, it’s finally time to dust off our warm-weather shoes!
As last season favored simplicity, it appears the fashion world is now calling for something a little more fashion-forward. During spring, we’re all about bold prints, neon colors, and pops of metallic.
If you want to ensure that you’re staying on top of the latest spring shoe trends, you’re going to want to start by reading this. We’re uncovering the seven most dominant shoe trends that you can expect to see anywhere from the runway to the street.
This season, it’s officially time to go big or go home.
Feathers and Seashells
We’re seeing no shortage of earth-inspired accessories on the shoe front.
Be it heels, slides or even sneakers, feathers and seashells are finding their way onto shoes everywhere. This is the perfect way to add an element of the natural world to any wardrobe collection.
Many stylists are choosing to fashion their seashells during the daytime and opting for features come sundown. This is all part of the “bigger is better” trend that is sweeping the shoe world.
Last season, the fashion world couldn’t get enough of white sneakers. While the shoes themselves were chunky, the uncomplicated white color scheme helped to neutralize the look.
We’re done with all white and ready to move onto something a little more colorful. The color scheme, we are all about that neon life.
Some of the most dominant neon colors we’re seeing are ultra lime green, hot pink and highlighter orange. These neons are typically being paired with a more neutral outfit. This allows the neon to truly pop.
Are you in the mood to make a statement?
If so, you may just happen to be in luck. It’s safe to say that bold prints are back for spring. While any pattern seems to be accepted, the most dominating patterns we’re seeing are paisley, floral and various animal prints.
While these bold prints never quite went away, they did take a back seat last season. We’re happy to embrace their return with open arms and our favorite neutral outfits.
Who knew that Tevas were set to make a comeback?
As it turns out, Tevas are now enjoying a serious return to the spotlight. After all, there’s no denying that Tevas are incredibly comfortable and oh-so-functional. Even still, the world of fashion was admittedly surprised to see Teva find itself on the likes of the runway.
A number of high-fashion designers have been incorporating the Teva design into their runway looks. Some of fashion’s most celebrated designers were pairing their most feminine dresses with bold socks and a pair of Tevas.
So, whether we like it or not, it looks like Tevas are officially back in action this season.
This season, don’t be afraid of a heel that is bold, bright and a little more complicated than we’re used to.
The world of fashion has never quite seen heels as we have seen them this season. We’re bidding farewell to your standard, ever-so-typical heel.
In its replacement, we’re seeing a variety of embellished heels. From geometrical shapes to rhinestone, the heel game is anything but simple this season. We’re also seeing bold colored heels that are accompanying a more neutral style shoe.
Gone are the days where our sneakers were limited to the gym and a walk around the block.
Here in 2019, we’re embracing all that is the sneaker. Not only are these sneakers ultra comfortable, but they’re also capable of elevating an entire outfit.
One of the most dominant features that we’re seeing in the sneaker design is that of exaggeration. We’re seeing bold colors, oversized treads and dominating toe caps. It’s safe to say there’s nothing casual about this seasons sneaker game.
These shoes are sneakers that can be worn on the court as well and off the court. They’re stylish, functional and capable of being the finishing touch to any top-notch outfit.
Crystals and Metallics
If you’re in the mood to shine, this one is for you.
This season, we can’t seem to escape the trend that is crystal and metallic. In particular, silver shoes embellished with carefully placed crystals are dominating the formal shoe game.
While crystal and metallic are typically worn formally, 2019 is all about embracing the two in a more casual light. As a result, we’re seeing both appear in less formal footwear such as slides, sandals and even sneakers.
The best part of wearing metallic shoes? We’re considering them a neutral so they can be worn with essentially anything.
