This week I’m planning the Spring subjects for the magazines I’m working on and also for the blog. So I’m reviewing many fashion shows and doing a lot of reading on trends and everything new in this fresh year. After putting my thoughts in order I got to thinking about the shoes of 2013. Shoes will be so much about statement this year! About changing the entire outfit and telling the world what’s your style like. And because I wanted this post to be more about shopping than just craving – I did a lot of that too – I thought I should pick some shoes that are a great add to your wardrobe, but are also affordable.
The ankle strap. From thin to super wide, even if it’s difficult to wear and can turn a good outfit into a mess, this type of shoe can’t be avoided for spring. It’s everywhere! You just have to choose it wisely: thin for shorter silhouettes and thinker legs (actually, preferably, just don’t choose this style!) and wider for long thin legs.
Iridescent and Neon. Bold is a must, and what better way to go extreme than in a pair of metallic touched pumps or a glimpse of neon? Go crazy or go home! Choose satine touched pumps or a pair of delicious colored sandals. If you prefer a simpler version, a neon heel is the perfect touch.
The futuristic and the Mise en cage. Futuristic style is not for everybody. If you are a Lady Gaga fan and hardly trying to look and dress like her you may try this super high heel with a laser cut platform that reminds me of Alexander McQueen designs. If you’re not that bold, but still want to get the sexy look the Mise en cage style is a good alternative. It’s a perfect pick for a night out with the girls, trying to get some guys attention. It says “I’m confident and powerful!”.
Sneakers. Sport clothing is still going strong this season. Designer Isabel Marant had sneakers hitting the runway since last season. For spring, we saw sneakers at Ashish, Y-3 and shoe designers like Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo also put their glamorous touch on sport shoe designs. I personally didn’t think this trend will resist, but these wedged super cool sneakers are so hot to style with mini skirts or cropped pants.
You’ve also probably noticed that the pointed toe is a must-have trend. Needless to say a pair of pointed toe pumps
for your formal outfits in spring or summer is essential.
So what are your favorite shoe trends
for this season to come?
