I’m already thinking ahead to spring and dreaming about all the cute, strappy sandals and summer slides, I can’t wait to wear very, very soon, like April…well, I guess I mean May. You see, I live in Toronto (same weather as NYC), and realistically it’s not until then that you can wear spring shoes without 1) freezing your feet off or 2) getting your shoes mucked up by all the gunk left outside from winter.
So what kind of footwear do you wear between seasons when you want to look and feel springy but be practical too? Here’s a look at some fabulous transitional booties I came across that are giving me spring fever!
1. Popular Peeps
Peep toe booties like this open-toe knit bootie look casual but classy. This bootie gives good coverage except for some stylish exposure at the back and toes. This is a great bootie for gals who live in places with milder winters and earlier springs, or you might wear them anyway, even if there is still a bit of a chill. Nice, neutral color!
2. Think Pink
Pink is the color of femininity and gentleness. As you transition to the warmer season, a light-colored bootie such as this pink croc-embossed block heel bootie will make the transition seamless.
3. Peek-A-Boo Booties
These navy suede cutout booties will put a spring in your step. If lighter colors don’t suit you, this rich, navy suede is an excellent option that pairs well with almost everything.
4. Western Wicker
A Western bootie gets a fun update with woven wicker. This pointed-toe ankle bootie makes a hip fashion statement with its modern shape and unique woven detail.
5. Bootie Vibes
When you want the look of a bootie but not the full coverage of one, try a mule instead. This western-inspired snakeskin embossed mule is chic and a great way to welcome spring in style. Comes in a really nice white too!
6. Holey Moley!
This perforated bootie is right on trend with its perfect and subtle perforations. Rich-colored leather + geometric patterned perforations give this bootie a stylish touch. It also comes in black and walnut.
Creative, edgy types will love these eye-catching, green snake print embossed booties. This bootie is just what you need for fun and games on the weekend.
8. Strap It On!
Slingback booties have been having their moment. These block heel booties have unique details and almost look like a sandal. Look closely at the wide slingback strap and the cute bow that gives this bootie a fresh and feminine vibe. This bootie comes in 7 colors, so indeed, you’ll find a color that works with your winter blacks but can also go with spring’s navy blues and creams.
Ok, now tell me …Which one is your favorite?
