Shoe styles come and go and so do the fashion guidelines for how to wear them. Long gone are the days of having to match the color of your shoes to your outfit, or pairing dressy shoes with dressy clothes only.
Today a new crop of shoes has inspired an anything-goes kind of shoe mentality. Here’s a look at five of the hottest spring shoes for 2019 and some cute outfits that look great with them.
1. The Woven Mule
Mules have taken on an artisanal look this spring. Woven loafers mules are the new “it” shoe. These comfy flats have a basket weave beauty that works with any kind of casual look from jeans to shorts to sundresses.
You’ll find woven loafer mules in several shades of neutral from dozens of popular brands. These crisp, white ones have a barely-there heel that makes them uber relaxed and comfy. Wear them with jeans, a flowy blue blouse, a sporty tote and a pair of fab earrings. What a great casual but classy look!
3. The Raffia Wedge
Here’s a sunny day shoe that looks cute with jeans, sun dresses, and will give you a leg up when wearing shorts. This classic espadrille is a favorite summer shoe because the thick platform wedge makes it is comfortable and easy to walk in. It also happens to make your legs look amazing!
You don’t need many other summer shoes when you have this one because the natural raffia finish goes with everything. In fact, it’s the earthy texture that gives this sandal its great summer vibe.
2. The Slip-On Sneaker
The sporty-chic trend that started a couple of years ago ushered in slip-on sneakers, and this spring, they are more popular than ever. This comfortable shoe is versatile and easy to wear and comes in almost every finish you can imagine, including exotic snakeskin!
A slip-on sneaker is perfect for skinny jeans or cuffed boyfriend jeans, but don’t be afraid to wear it with a dressier look either. Pair a fun slip-on sneaker with a pleated summer skirt and a clutch bag for a feminine look that’s sporty and youthful too.
4. The Strappy Block Heel
All the pretty ruffle tops we are seeing this spring and summer call for a feminine, sexy sandal. A strappy block heel sandal like this one above delivers! Slip-on this sexy cage sandal with the flared block heel and get ready to make your entrance into spring. These shoes are showstoppers and will dress up any outfit and give you an effortlessly elegant look.
5. The Chic Wedge
When pumps are too dressy, and you don’t want to wear flats, try a stacked wedge heel. These blue suede wedges are the perfect complement to this rope bag and give this casual boilersuit a sophisticated boost.
