Trend Watch: Summer Shoes

Put those rain boots away, shine up those toes with a pedicure, and get ready to rock a (fingers crossed) warm and sunny season!

Soho Meadow in Pink
Available at:Dr. Martens

Let’s be honest, when does a gal ever really need a good reason to buy a new pair of shoes? Even those with tight budgets know nothing can stand in the way of our unquenchable thirst for shiny, new smelling, fresh footwear. Like an oasis in a desert, designers such as Roberto Cavali, Prada, Michael Kors, and Kenzo beckon to us with jewel tones, soft suedes, delicate floral patterns, gleaming patent leathers, breezy sandals, and casual chic sneakers.

To cool things down during the day, try wearing a sea foam hued ballet flat and at night, heat up with platform wedges in sizzling color of the year, Tangerine Tango. For casual days, wear 90’s retro velcro sneakers in an unexpected way by pairing them with a cute floral dress and jean jacket or go for the classic preppy look with patent leather loafers, a light weight cardigan, and perfect headband.

You’ve heard the expression, "Put a spring in your step." This is the way to do it.
