Trusty ballerina flats, comfortable Paddingtons and day-to-day ankle boots are among the list of shoe styles that I turn to season after season. That being said, every year a fresh wave of footwear trends will still arrive to spice things up below the knees. It can be so overwhelming that it’s hard not to amass a collection of pumps and sandals in rainbow colors. Hopefully this roundup will inspire you!
1. Monochrome Buckled Loafers from Reneve
These loafers look casual yet refined thanks to the gold-tone hardware. As the weather heats up, they’ll come in handy to replace tall boots for everyday occasions. If you have a casual dress code at work, loafers can be a good choice to give your heels a rest!
2. Floral Pointy Flats from Zandy Shoes
The great thing about colorful and/or patterned shoes is that they can easily make a statement. Meanwhile, you can get away with a plainer outfit to bring down the tone. These floral flats are loved for the elegant point-toe design, which keeps the look firmly in the formal spectrum.
3. Monochrome Low Cut Pumps from NANING9
The low cut heel isn’t the newest trend in women’s footwear, but it’s definitely one to stay. The low cut detailing easily spices up the conservative silhouette of court heels. The monochrome design makes these stilettos a no-brainer for formal occasions.
4. Block Heel Pumps from Wifky
The chunky block heel is probably my favorite heeled silhouette, as the sturdy heels give you ease and stability with each step. This minimalistic and versatile pair even comes with an elasticized collar for extra comfort. Great for everyday wear in the office.
5. Snakeskin Chunky Heel Sandals from Wifky
Animal prints such as snakeskin are perfect for adding a subtly sultry style to your look. I’d pair these easy-to-wear wedge sandals with my go-to LBD for a versatile look that takes me from the office to evening dinners or even parties.
6. Patent Mule Sandals from Reneve
Dubbed the lazy girl’s must-have, the effortless mule has been all the rage for a few seasons. I’m glad the weather is finally warm enough to transition from boots to this chic style – at least before the official sandal season. A great neutral pair, like this high-heeled version with an open toe, pulls together any outfit and adds instant sophistication.
7. Pointy Suede Mules from chuu
Slip-on mules are so lovable and spring-friendly that I have to include a closed-toe stiletto option here as well. Also coming in an earth-tone color, this pair is for minimalists who can’t be bothered with regular pedicures, myself occasionally included.
8. Lace-Up Pumps from VIVIER
The lace-up vamp lends these faux suede pumps a sexy vibe. Save them for special occasions, concerts or romantic date nights. Soon you’ll realize your collection can’t be complete without a pair of lace-up flats, or maybe lace-up sandals too!
9. Ankle Strap Pointy Heels from Marlangrouge
I believe ankle straps are added to heels for practical more than decorative reasons. These color-blocked heels come with a skinny ankle strap, which essentially keeps me from tripping and lets me strut around freely. The style goes with just about anything from crisp shift dresses to skinny pants.
10. All-Weather Long Boots from VIVIER
This list can’t be without boots, those essentials that weather any weather – even rain or snow, or when long walks are expected. This sturdy pair is great for wearing with denim cutoffs or jeans tucked in. Not to mention it’s a beautiful nod to the year-round equestrian trend.
