Shoes are the most accessible way to update to the new season’s wardrobe. Whether metallic, suede flats, coloured platform sandals, or lace-up fashion trainers, there is something you will want to spend on and step out in style this spring.
Block heel sandals
From square block and round platform block to wedges in contrasting colours and prints, block heel sandals have received a little makeover. They are comfy, wearable, and come in surprising colours (bold orange, yellow, green) and prints (elegant animal prints paired with classic black, or bright and bold graphic prints). To nail the look choose a sandal shape that suits your leg and overall shape. Bolder hues go nicely with a more neutral outfit; brighten up a plainer outfit with bright coloured sandals.
Metallic will go with pretty much everything for spring/summer 2014 so it is well worth a splurge. We are seeing it in brogues, with shades of metallic silver, bronze, or paired with a solid hue in ankle strapped court shoes, or in gladiator inspired sandals in a combination of mixed hues. For a high-low day look, wear a casual sporty dress with a pair of metallic lace up brogues. For a stylish evening look, dual coloured heels with metallic accents will instantly glam up your look. Just make sure to
complement your jewellery with the metallic shade.
Suede is another big fashion statement for spring. I know, it needs a little more care, but a pair of
suede shoes can go a long way in your wardrobe. Court, simple flats, or ankle boots, choose a pair in
spring neutrals such as beige, tan, or grey and wear with your favourite skirt, trousers, or skinnies for an easy day look.
Fashion trainers are spring’s essence of comfort and quirky style. From neutral and metallic to
flashy oranges, blues, and yellows, choose a pair that will suit your style and your wardrobe best. Pair with slip dresses, pencil skirts, and jeans and ensure that one piece of your outfit has a delicate and feminine feel so you look feminine — a silk top with neckpiece, denim, and trainers is super chic.
