Spring is just around the corner. Time to pull off those boots and step out in something lighter. Neutrals, flatforms and kitten heels are all hot for spring. Here are the spring trends for shoes in 2011.
Neutral or nude shoes are excellent for spring. They look nice with creams, light florals and match any light color. These Cory Flats by Alfani are one way to wear the trend. They are a flat loafer like style with a suede floral detail on the toe. In addition, they have a leather upper. These come in sizes five to eleven. Find them at Macys for $69.00.
Another nude option is the Victoria high heel platform sandal from Nine West. With a 4 1/2″ heel and 3/4″ platform, this shoe will really lengthen your legs. Additionally, the thick criss-crossed bands across the foot are stunning. These come in whole and half sizes five to eleven and size twelve. Also, select from a narrow, wide and medium widths. Purchase these at Nine West for $89.00.
My final pick is the Seychelles Women’s Shimmy Peep-Toe Pump. These have a 2 ½ inch heel and an open toe. A covered heel, crisscrossing front straps and cutout side give these shoes a lot of style. It comes in off-white and taupe. Choose from whole and half sizes six to ten and size eleven. These cost $59.95 at DSW.
This shoe is similar to a wedge or a platform except the wedge is all one level. This provides greater stability for walking. These shoes are the “It” shoe for spring. One popular pick is the Layla Platform Wedge Espadrilles by Dolce Vita. These come in nude and orchid. Choose from sizes six, seven, seven and a half, eight, eight and a half, nine and ten. These cost $102.00 at shopbop.com.
For those who want a simple take on this trend try these Skechers Women’s Best Girl-Orchard Blossom Wedge Sandal. These are not completely flat across the bottom but are a good variation to the trend. These comfortable shoes have criss-cross straps and an adjustable buckle. Choose from brown or black. Depending on the size and color you choose, these cost between about $30.00 and $50.00. Find them at amazon.com.
I love kitten heels. They give a little lift but are way more comfortable than regular heels. The Charlize Kitten Heel is a basic black shoe that can be worn with anything. It has a cute floral interior, 1 3/4″ heel and a canvas upper. Find it at alloy.com for $36.90. These come in sizes six to nine and a half.
Another cute style is the kitten heel peep toe pump that comes in whole and half sizes five and a half to ten. These cost $69.00 at victoriassecret.com. Choose from snake print, fuchsia and black.
