To celebrate the beginning of another new year we’re thinking of new ways to give ourselves that ‘get up and go’ that we need to prepare for the challenges ahead. And, what better way to put a spring in your step than with some fabulous new shoes? Make like Carrie Bradshaw and check out the latest Spring/Summer styles that are going to be hot this year.
Yes, forget all the Heidi connotations – clogs are officially back. Although they made an appearance in the Autumn/Winter season – being spotted on the likes of Alexa Chung – they have been revamped for Spring and the brass studding detail is going to be everywhere. The wooden soles are also perfect for teaming with earthy tones and pretty summer dresses.
Here at Littlewoods Blog HQ we’ve all been fawning over this pretty pair from Morgan – subtle enough for the daytime but easy to glam up with matching accessories!
Are you well and truly over the platform shoe trend? Sick of wobbling everywhere and misjudging the height of steps? Well, thankfully, you can now relax as this Spring/Summer sees the return of the kitten heel. A cute heel, comfy to walk in all day – and loads of different styles to choose from as well. We think this is an excellent trend to return to our wardrobes this year.
We love these Nicholas Millington lace kitten heels – a gorgeous shoe for a night out, and you won’t have achey feet at the end of it.
Straps and Buckles
If it’s got lots of straps, or it features buckles, then your footwear choice will be bang on trend for 2011. The most prominent trend is for shoes to feature lots and lots of straps – the more the better and the strap materials are imaginative too.
Expect to see lots of mixed materials and textures including leather, ribbon, laser cut panels, lots of studding (in a tieback to the clog trend) and of course buckles. Miss Sixty have a couple of gorgeous pairs that we think are perfect for summer.
