While the weather outside might not reflect it, spring is almost here and summer is on its way. After one of the longest, harshest winters in history, it’s safe to say that we’re all ready for the change! One way to prepare for the warm weather is to revamp your wardrobe and swap out your winter boots for summer sandals. Now that it’s finally March, spring and summer clothing, shoes, and accessories are making their way into stores and online – and it’s never too early to upgrade your wardrobe. From peep toe high heels to gladiator sandals, what better way to prepare for spring than to invest in some fun footwear? Below are the top five summer shoe trends that you won’t want to miss out on.
Ideal for to dress up a casual look of chino shirts and a tank or a cute summer dress, wedges can make your legs look longer and leaner without looking too “dressed up.” Opt for a pair of black strappy wedges for a night out on the town or a simple white or floral printed material for a casual day look.
2. Gladiator Sandals
These sandals are your ultimate friend for long days of walking while still looking trendy. Gladiator sandals have been a hot trend for years that’s still going strong so you can rest assured they’ll still be in style season after season. From knee-high straps to a simple flat sandal, gladiators can add a unique flare to your ensemble.
Who says flip-flops are reserved for the beach? Choose a thin soled flip-flop with a metallic strap for a somewhat dressier, more modern look compared to the plastic flip-flops that are a dime a dozen on the beaches today. Or opt for some bling on the strap to give your look a little something extra!
4. Peep Toe Heels
Show off your freshly pedicured toes just in time for summer with some peep toe high heels. Peep toe heels are a perfect warm weather option for work paired with skinny jeans and a chic blazer or to dress up for a special event at nighttime. Choose a nude pair for a more reserved look or a pop of color to brighten up your look.
5. Boat Shoes
Comfy, cute, and ideal for casual days, boat shoes offer the effortlessly chic look you’re looking for during the summer. For days running errands to fun summer activities outdoors, boat shoes will hold up and give you the comfort you need after too many days in flat soled flip-flops or sky-high heels. A simple leather pair will match just about everything.
Put your best foot forward when shopping for summer shoes and be sure to look online for hot deals if you’re on a budget. Whether they’re wedges, gladiator sandals, flip-flops, heels, or boat shoes, a great pair of shoes can freshen up your look with little effort. With these five options in your wardrobe, you’re all set for summer – just make sure your toes are freshly manicured first!
