Spring will soon be with us and we have to think about shoes to wear in this really beautiful season.
The spring trends are more or less predictable but there are some new tendencies that you should be aware of.
So, here you are the styles which are going to be in vogue in the forthcoming season:
Hot tints: Orange and Pink
Orange is a top trend color for shoes in spring 2009. It is bright, lively and dynamic.
There will be plenty of bright tints this spring in garments as well but it is better to combine flesh hues in clothes with bright colors in shoes to create a nice-looking image.
Orange is good for young girls but maybe too loud for older ladies.
If you are unsure you can dare to wear orange, pay attention to the pink or white.
They are softer, more charming and tender and very sweet. Any woman of any age will look pretty feminine and nice wearing footwear of these colors.
Among other popular tints we saw red, purple, violet, all shades of grey, metallics and browns.
Choose what goes the best with you.
As we have already mentioned flowers will be highly in vogue this season, both in garments and shoes.
Floral appliqués, embellishments and prints will be seen in a diversity of forms: from subtle to extreme.
Floral patterns look very exquisite and sophisticated.
Buckles, zippers, snaps are used in everything from pumps to sandals.
Probably it does not look very womanly but it sure looks modern and very comfortable to wear.
They’ve been trendy for a few seasons already and this spring designers found a way to extend the life of booties by cutting away parts of them.
They can be open-toed, with cut-away sides or cut-out heels. No matter what they are like they will be very popular.
I guess it won’t be a mistake if I say the booties will soon become classic.
Some critics say gladiator shoes were the worst trend last season but designers don’t seem to take that into account.
They keep on making shoes of this style and even make them bigger than before.
High knee gladiator shoes will be the top trend.
Heavily strapped heeled versions are about the hottest thing going, and the season’s bold colors will make them even more dynamic.
The height of the heel also depends. So, if you like this style you will certainly find something for you.
Of course shoes of this season are mostly heeled but flats are also presented in collections.
And it is no wonder as designers feel many women like and prefer wearing flat shoes rather than high-heeled stilettos despite all that sexy look they give.
Variety of Materials
You’ll see a lot of mixed media like canvas and leather side by side, as well as ultra-soft leathers and more patents. A lot of brands are also using printed fabrics and textiles.
Reptile lether ahs been popular throughout 2008 and we see the trend flowing on into the new season with a range of new interpretations.
It looks really hot but beware of gaudy snake prints and cheap imitations.
If you don’t feel right about wearing natural leather you may as well opt for faux material but keep in mind the quality.
This season we see a variety of shoes in folk motif style. The most widely presented are Egyptian-inspired sandals and Greek-style shoes.
They are unusual and a real standout, while embellishments like jewels and beading give some exotic feel to the shoes of this kind.
Fringe is used everywhere: garments, bags, footwear, even some accessories.
This style reminds me of those old western movies. Stick to genuine suede in colors like camels, tans, browns and black.
Luxurious, opulent gems and rhinestones will catch the eye, as well as studs and grommets. Bows, faux fur and fringes are widely used as well. All those make the shoes look chic and very much special.
And of course don’t forget about classics: high-stiletto pumps, beautiful wedges, chunky heels that are considered as classic due to the fact they are comfortable and no matter what designers think about them, they are worn all over the world by women of all professions and status.
I hope you like the models I’ve told you above. To me they seem really nice-looking and very appropriate for spring time.
