Trending Now: What’s On Ya Feet?
Greetings Fashionistas! This article is dedicated to footwear trends. Retailers and designers tried to bridge the gap between classic and casual footwear for Spring & Summer footwear trends. Here’s a few of my favorites and most popular trends for women.
Women Footwear Trends:
Trans-seasonal Sandals: As the name suggests, these sandals are designed to go from season to season. Examples of these are platform sandals, cross straps, sandal boot, mules & the mid height heel. These are available in an array of bright tones, prints and leather offerings.

Sandal Boot Mules
Mid Height Heel
Pumps: A classic that never stopped trending, but somehow is making waves in the footwear category. Small tweaks to fabrication choices does wonders for this oldie but goodie. Try colorful suede options, for a brighter and season appropriate twist. Some offerings has gone as far as adding embellishment detailing to the pump, this creates a level of newness to the classic pump. Examples of these are the T-Bar/T-Strap pump, the D’orsay & the Classic.

The Smart Flat: The smart flat has established itself as a must have item for the season. It’s convenient, it’s more high fashion than before and it comes in a variation of cool designs for example the perforated flats. Designers definitely got creative when designing this new and modern take on the flats footwear. Some favorites include: summer derby, laser perforations, fringe flats & iridescent colorways.

Ballerinas- Ballerinas have been around for quite some time, however there are new takes on the style of the ballerinas. For example we have the d’orsay flats, ghillie flats which have fine leather straps that substitute as laces, sling back flats and the newest member, the square toe flats.

Square Toe Flats Sling Back Flats
The Flat Sandals: This is by far my most favorite trend simply because it encompasses so many different styles, it gives you variety and options such as the Birkenstock, Knee High Gladiator, Espadrilles, Gem Stone Sandals, & Fringe/Tassels Sandals. So many great options for the season ahead!
