As promised, here is my second and final installment of my Spring Shoe Trends. All of the shoes below can be found at Forever21.com or at your local Forever 21 store, except the final pair which are available at wetseal.com or at your local Wet Seal store.
Flatform shoes are a great alternative to platform shoes. Rather than having a heel that has a higher than the front of the shoe, a flatform is a platform shoe that is all one level. These shoes are SUPER COMFORTABLE and a perfect for everyday wear in the Spring/Summer. As always, you can dress this shoe up or down. Wear it with a maxi, shorts, or jeans. The perfect jean for the Espadrille Flatform is the latest cutoff cropped flare, creating the perfect boho look.
I despise round toe flats, if you have them in your closet throw them out and replace them with the Spring's latest trend, Lace-Up Flats. Forever 21 offers this shoe in a variety of colors to go with every outfit. Though these shoes are available in multiple colors on the website, my favorite color is the blush pair, which is trending this Spring. The lace-up strings on this shoe allow for the shoe to be adjusted for comfort and a personalized fit. They're pointed toe, which gives an updated look to the traditional flat aka the ballet slipper.
Perforated Spring Booties
If you're like me and love to wear boots year-round, this perforated bootie is your best option for this Spring/Summer! The perforated boot allows your foot to breathe in warm weather and keeps you cool. I would buy the brown pair (available on the website), as it goes better with a majority of Spring/Summer fashion. Brown is also a more versatile color than black, if you're searching for a shoe that would work with a majority of the clothes in your closet.
Fringe is a great trend for Spring! I'm still searching for a pair of affordable (> $40.00) fringe sandals, but this pair of fringe booties from Forever 21 is a great way to wear the trend. This tan color is perfect for mixing and matching with your favorite outfits this Spring. I would pair this pair of booties with a cute romper. I have a white lace romper that will go perfect with the fringe booties from Forever 21.
Lace Up Booties
Lace Up Booties are perfect for Spring! The lace allows for openness at the front and top of the boot that will keep your feet cool in the Spring/Summer. These shoes feature a peep toe, and a chunky heel. Chunky heeled shoes are my favorite, and provide added support and comfort when you are on your feet for an extended period of time. This boot is perfect for pairing with a a maxi, romper or a club wear outfit. Unlike the other shoes, this shoe is available at Wet Seal, and is listed as the Faux Suede Lace Up Heeled Bootie on wetseal.com.
