Many thanks to my sponsor for stepping in today to write a blog post about every gal’s favorite topic: SHOES!
Happy weekend, all. We’ll return to our regularly scheduled program tomorrow. Big kisses from snowy New Jersey!
Over the years, shoe lovers have been overwhelmed with a seemingly limitless number of options to choose from. Popular shoe makers with a rich history in innovative design have also gone in heavily on production of some eye-candy footwear, making it easier than ever for girls to choose trendy foot fashions this year. We spoke to Stylist magazine, (click here for a great infographic!) on the history of iconic shoes and which shoe types every girl should have in 2015.
This gladiator shoe style has been around for a while but it has returned this year, bolder and better. Expect to see more people wearing shoes tied up around the ankle or the calf. Designers have taken lace-up shoes to new heights this year, and they are now available from sandals to high heels. Choose to go with shoes with knee-high laces or those that are ankle length; you’ll be sure to look trendy!
High and skinny stilettos will take a backseat as heels that have width and support become more popular. With a super stylish block heel, you can give your feet the relief they need while remaining stylish. Block heel shoes are casual yet sexy so there won’t be any need for you to sacrifice your comfort for sexiness.
These sandals are set to help a lot of females improve their casual wear experience. Expect to see more sandals with feathered details, fringes, buckles, and jewelry over the course of this year. Embellished sandals have massively improved the appeal of everyday casual wear.
It’s almost impossible to go through the wardrobe of any trendy woman and not find pointy flats. However, the flats in production this year have been redefined. This year’s flats mostly have sleek and slim silhouettes that are perfect for both work and play. With the pointed flats on offer this year, you will be able to look great on any outfit without the inconvenience that comes with a high heel.
The mule kick has been modified so it is no longer shoes for older females. There are now many variants including floral, flat, chunky heel or thin stilettos meaning there is something for you regardless of your style. This is the shoe type to go for if you want something that is minimally sleek while retaining the flair of the 90s.
The flatform is another shoe style that will take this year by storm. These are clunky retro kicks that were mostly popular with designers and younger performing artists but today, it is the easiest way to experience the comfort of wearing a flip-flop while remaining classy. A flatform shoe is basically an elevated sandal with a touch of avant-garde. With this design aspect, you don’t have to deal with the delicate nature of kitten heels or sky-high stilettos in order to be on trend.
Color Block shoes can instantly improve the appeal of any dressing. Designers know this and so they have taken things further by introducing shoes with three or four colors. A few years ago, you would probably look ridiculous wearing a multi-colored sandal but today, it’s considered trendy. A quick tip for people buying multi-colored shoes is to highlight one of the colors on the shoe by pairing it with a skirt or top that is similarly colored.
With these exquisite female shoe designs, you are guaranteed to get shoes that are good enough for class and also good enough for parties! Here is a good piece that will help you make a statement with your shoes.
So girls, which shoe is your favorite? If I didn’t have an irrational fear of falling in heels, I’d opt for the gladiator sky-high lace-up stilettos. Those are some sexy sandals…
