Put an extra pep in your step and welcome the season in style with these fashionable options!
15 Spring Shoes We Want Right Now
No shoe screams spring quite like a pair of espadrilles. For 2019, the classic style is elevated by the addition of a wedge and tie-up detailing. We love this style for it’s fun and feminine flare. These brown wedges ($79.95) are a fantastic addition to your warm-weather wear as they can be easily styled for work, play and anywhere in between. The striped flats ($64.96) with a tie-up detail are ideal for walking the boardwalk at the beach or exploring your local beach town. And, these darling laced espadrilles ($130) with a comfortable heel height and trendy tie detail are the soon-to-be shoe of the season!
Slides have been the fashionista’s warm-weather shoe of choice for a few seasons now and they don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. The trick to rocking this trend is opting for a more polished style. That way, you won’t feel like you’re pairing a cute spring outfit with a pair of house slippers. These three options do just that while nodding to the season’s bright shades and beachy days. These woven brown slides ($59.95) are a fantastic everyday choice, while these leopard print slides ($100) are a fun and trendy way to incorporate 2019’s hottest print into your wardrobe. And these criss-cross slides ($98), with a funky and vibrant ring detail, could not be more spring break-appropriate.
Another major trend for spring 2019 is the platform sneaker. These are a funky and unexpected way to “heighten” a look while remaining cool and casual. These three styles hit on all of the season’s top trends. The blue and white espadrille sneakers ($65) are sweet and girly, while the rose gold platform sneakers ($89.95) bring some statement metallic to the table. The final sneakers ($70) are a stylish way to dip your toes into the snakeskin trend that’s on the rise.
We’ve got to say, heeled sandals are by far our favorite spring shoe trend. They’re easy to wear, more comfortable than winter pumps, and they look oh-so-adorable when paired with a sundress or some fun shorts. Here are three styles we want right now. These blue fringed, heeled sandals ($89.95) are a great style to have on hand for nights out during spring and summer as are these orange block heels. ($129) How cute is the pop of bright orange on these?! And these brown sandals ($198) with a trendy ring detail will match with literally any of your spring ensembles.
We’ll round up this spring shoe spotlight with mules as they’ve been having a major fashion moment for what feels like forever. We’re bringing the style into the upcoming seasons with lighter shades, fun cut-outs and easy-to-wear block heels. These feminine beaded mules ($128) are the ideal understated, yet swoon-worthy spring shoes, while these black mules ($89.95) look sophisticated, polished and youthful with their bow and cut out details. And these heeled brown mules ($99.95) are our top choice for the office or when we want to dress up a casual look while staying comfy.
Now, go step into spring in style!
