Step Into Summer: 5 Hot Trends

It’s time to do those pedicures! Breezy Mama‘s Vanessa shows us the cutest, to die for, must have NOW, shoes for the warm months ahead.

From Vanessa:

Shoes can be such a great asset to your wardrobe and they can complete even the simplest of outfits. Break out the nail polish and show off your perfectly painted toes–Step into Summer with on of these 5 hot trends.

Pastels AND Bright Hues
Just like the Spring clothing, both pastels and bright colors will be all the rage on the footwear end.  From yellows, to aquas, to greens, you’ll see it all.  Are you a wearer of black?  Try brightening up your outfit by adding a strappy and colorful sandal to your feet.  Pops of color will take you from Spring right into Summer.

Shiny, aka Gold and Silver
Don’t you love how Metallic keeps staying strong?  I do, because gold and silver can add that “little bit of special” you are looking for.  You can stay simple with a sandal (you might even have a pair from last year!) or go for the newest flat–a cap toe.

Hardware and Buckles
There always needs to be a little hard edge and the last couple of years, the trend has been strong.  This year, there’s no exception–whether you like a little hardware or a cleaner look showcasing a row of buckles, these two options do the trick.  The above black versions will make it season to season.

Think the gladiator, but stepped up a notch.  Whether it’s around your ankle or up the top of your foot, lace-ups can be a fun way to add a bit of uniqueness to your feet.  Wear them for a wedding or shower with a simple little dress and you’ll be oh so chic!

Wedges and Espadrilles
In more neutral colors, they will be easy to find in an array of heel sizes.  If you are more of a trendy, adventurous-type, wear a pair of the more LadyGaga inspired Super-Mega Platforms.  Uncomfortable for sure, but they will get you that “wow” you’re looking for.  Otherwise, stick with a style and color that you can surely wear with everything!

Sky Reno Indigo by Clarks, $110.00 (on left), click here to order.
I liked these because they have a look of a wedge and espadrille combined with a nice open toe for the summer.  So flattering, simple and comfortable.

Magestee by Steve Madden $69.00, click here to order.
True to the name, the braided espadrille is a great staple every summer.
