Spring is in full swing and Summer is only 47 days away! "I don't need anymore shoes. I don't need anymore shoes. I don't need anymore shoes." Whhhaaaaa, you crazy, girl! Of course you do! Shoes are really making a big statement this season, and out of all the trends (there are about 10 different shoe trends happening right now) we are sharing our favorite five.
That's correct...you read that right! Flatforms is a new term coined this season for all these raised, flat shoes. This is really a dream come true for all us shorties out there! We get the added height without breaking our backs all day long. Flatforms are seen in sandals, lace up oxfords, slips ons....we could go on and on. This shoe is, of course, a more casual one so sorry ladies, you cannot sport these at the office but PLEASE sport them all weekend long!!!!
Another trend I'm really digging is the lace ups. Suede, denim, espadrilles, gladiators....ALL KINDS of lace ups! Now I think this trend is amazing but do not overindulge. Stick to one, maybe two lace ups for the season. No one wants to be tied up every day but a girl can certainly commit to being tied up a day here and there! (Insert emoji...wink wink).
Probably one of my favorite on-going trends....the sneaker. I love, love, love a good sneaker. I have for the most part always been a heel girl (reference my shortie comment above) but being a Mom of two children, that has sort of changed for me. Don't get me wrong, I still love my heels, just not every day. So when a trend is around that allows me to wear sneakers with outfits other than active wear....well I'm ALL about that! And I love the fact that they are actually cute, funky, big, small...whatever, take your pick!
And then there's the chunky heel...this one was a bit tough for me. I felt clunky when I first put on a heel with a chunky heel but then I quickly lost that feeling and fell in love! Chunky heels are much easier to wear than spiked pumps, and lets face it....what's worse than putting on your new spiked pumps and then ruining the heel the first time you wear them because you had to walk on cobblestone at a wedding....NOTHING!!! So take advantage of this trend, and wear your heels anywhere!
Pointed toes are everywhere this season! And how cute is the pair in the middle?!? A pointed toe pump is super sexy while the pointed toe flats bring a bit more drama and sophistication to a ballet flat. This trend will not go out of style so feel free to stock up!
