Bright Colored Shoes
Cute shoes for spring in bold, saturated colors like bright orange, pink, and green are a great way to add a pop to your wardrobe. They are absolutely perfect for adding a touch of fun and playfulness to an everyday outfit or your favorite special occasion look.
You can find bright shoes in a plethora of styles–everything from strappy high heels to chunky sneakers, to pointed-toe flats. Wear these saturated hues from head to toe with bright outfits, or add an unexpected shot of color by styling them with a white dress. If you’re working on branching out and wearing more colors, starting with your shoes is a fun and easy way to do it.
Flowers are the perennial symbol of spring, and when it comes to fashion, floral shoes will be, er, blooming everywhere this spring. Flower motifs and embellishments, floral prints and embroidery will bring new life to classic shoe silhouettes this season. Expect to see lots of pinks and greens, and pretty styles that look perfect with sundresses.
Shoes with floral details can elevate a simple outfit or fit in perfectly with a more maximalist look. Whether for casual or formal events, everyday wear or special occasions, floral footwear adds just the right dose of (traditionally) feminine vibes.
Who doesn’t love slip-ons? They’re stylish, comfy, and easy to wear. Without any laces or buckles, slip-on shoes are perfect style for a busy lifestyle (not to mention airport security), and the sleek, polished aesthetic brings sophistication to any outfit. They’re offered in a multitude of styles, including loafers, sneakers, and mules, among others.
There’s truly a slip-on for every vibe this season. From casual to dressy, in fabrics including canvas, leather, and everything in between, this is a spring shoe trend that will *slide* easily into your wardrobe.
Yes, Mary Janes are back. The timeless shoe style that historically features a rounded toe box and a strap across the top of the foot is ready to bring a touch of preppy polish to your spring look. While they often have a low heel and are associated with a vintage look, Mary Janes have gotten a stylish upgrade for Spring 2023, creating a cute, playful look that’s going to be big.
Mary Janes are the perfect way to add a retro touch to your outfit, without looking dated–the Twee and Indie Sleaze aesthetics are having a major resurgence, after all. Look for options with a sleek, elevated heel or chunky platform sole for a fun twist. Not sure how to wear them? Pair your Mary Janes with other polished choices like a tailored blazer, jeans, and pearl jewelry, and you can never go wrong.
Another Indie Sleaze-era comeback style to get excited about this spring is ballet flats. With their low heels and sleek construction, the ballet flat is a shoe that’s designed for all-day wear. Perfect for work and play, you can wear them to the office, to brunch, even a fancy evening affair.
Ballet flats are essentially timeless; they footwear staples have cycled in and out of the spotlight over the years, but they never really go away. So why have ballet flats have stuck around? Well, they’re comfy, elegant, and chic–period. But this spring’s ballet flats aren’t the same old classic design–they come with fun, modern twists for 2023. Expect to see ballet flats with extra embellishments like ankle straps, rhinestone buckles, and bows, as well as unexpected fabrications like clear vinyl.
Go ahead and add some shine to your shoe collection! Holiday time may be over, but metallic fabrics and finishes are everywhere for spring. Whether you prefer a sleek and polished look or you’re into bohemian fashion, metallic shoes can be paired with everything from casual denim to flowy dresses, adding extra sparkle to any outfit–your way. Metallic shoes are perfect for making a statement and experimenting with new colors and textures in your wardrobe. Ease into the trend with a pair of matte gold sandals, or dive in head, er, feet first, with glossy metallic green western boots. Either way, you’re ready to step into the new season.
