I’m a sucker for a new pair of shoes. My closet is stashed with plenty of styles, but what do I do? Keep going back for more. From booties to wedges, it’s mission impossible for me to pass up the season’s trendiest shoes.
Still, I splurge only if a shoe will last a few seasons. The good thing is, there are plenty of brands that are both affordable and trendy. Here’s my breakdown of spring’s top shoe trends and options for every budget.
Spring Shoe Trend #1: Suede
Typically, napped leather is reserved for fall. But expect to see suede and suede-like shoes everywhere this spring and summer, especially in lighter weights and softer hues like pastels.
Spring Shoe Trend #2: Spice-Market Colors
Marrakech-inspired hues range from saffron to sage and warm up and brighten your overall look.
Spring Shoe Trend #3: Fringe
Go ahead and drape yourself in fringe and tassels—they’re everywhere this season. My rule? Stick to one piece of fringe per outfit to make it the focal point.
Spring Shoe Trend #4: Gladiators
The gladiator just won’t die! Besides the strappy-to-the-knee version, this season, expect a new twist, with fancier heels and colorful, punchy patterns.
Spring Shoe Trend #5: Pretty Pastels
This spring is full of pretty pastels, from mint green to baby blue.
Spring Shoe Trend #6: Slip-On Sneakers
The slip-on has never been so popular. And they come in all colors, patterns and textures this spring.
Spring Shoe Trend #7: Espadrilles
Classic espadrilles are back by popular demand this year. These canvas shoes are known for their comfort and casual, effortless style. Pair them with shorts, dresses, or jeans.
