While flowers may not be in bloom everywhere just yet, they certainly are on shoes! I’ve already starting shopping floral appliqué bags, but I’m sticking with prints for my footwear. From barely-there blooms to abstract flourishes reminiscent of Monet paintings to clear-cut florals, there’s a look available in any style, for any occasion.
Cold weather keeping you from wearing sandals in the winter? Don’t let it stop you! Okay, adding a few extra straps won’t exactly prevent frostbite, but it looks like it might (go with me here) and besides, it’s mind over matter. Just make sure you have the Uber car service app downloaded – that way you can catch a ride when things start to get a little too icy!
You can’t rationalize indulging in every trend that pops up, but considering lace-making has been around since ancient times, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get a lot of wear out of the style. And it doesn’t hurt that we saw it grace the Fall and Spring catwalks. So what’ll it be? Pumps? Booties? Flats? I’ll take them all! Lace up your shoes with these romantic picks…
We already love one of Daphne, one of Jason Wu’s most famous styles – and have since she first made an appearance in Fall 2012. Now right in time for her first birthday, this cute scaled-down version amps up Daphne’s desirability, thanks to the addition of macramé detailing. Just three strips of a relaxed yet perfectly tailored weave is all a bag like this needs to gain fresh energy.
The ‘00s brought us leggings, the revival of skinny jeans, MK & A’s hobo look (and The Row), Stella McCartney’s environmentally-friendly fashions, and oh yeah, a new millennium! To celebrate this momentous occasion, we began wearing shoes that were…comfortable (I couldn’t bring myself to list a certain foam clog that’s since grown so shockingly common, but you know what I’m talking about).
My shoe of the season is actually a long-time favorite – Manolo Blahnik’s BB. They are the most comfortable heels you will ever own, I have run in them without taking a single fall (can you tell that I’m already planning out my Fashion Week outfits?). When it comes to a single sole heel that you’ll be wearing from sunup to sundown, there’s just nothing better.
