1. Lady Loafers
Who said loafers were only for grandpas? The loafer trend is back and looking better than ever. They easily make any outfit look put-together and sophisticated. Loafers with fun colors and designs can add a playful aspect to a plain office dress. If you prefer a preppy look, pair the shoes with some ripped jeans and a t-shirt for an edgy twist on a traditional look. Loafers also look great with sundresses and are way more comfortable than the classic sandal wedge. Next time you wear a sundress, try pairing it with some backless loafers for a casual and comfy look. If you want a pair, look to stores like Zara and Topshop (currently they’re both HUGE on this trend).
2. Pom-Pom Sandals
The best option to pair with a playful spring outfit is pom-pom sandals. These come in slip-on, thong sandal, and gladiator tie-up styles. Make sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple if you choose to rock these. If you have a tight budget, there are several fashion articles and blogs that help demonstrate how to make your own pair from craft supplies. Kate Spade and Rebecca Minkoff are big on this trend right now.
3. Western Wear
Whether you live in the suburbs or the big city, western style booties are very popular this spring. Why? They’re hard to resist as each pair comes with its own style of fringe, chains, and studs. This statement shoe combines the essence of the motor shoe and cowgirl boot and should definitely be paired with a simple outfit. Jeffrey Campbell and Steve Madden are big on this look.
