Shoes News

Are you ready to hear the latest on summer shoes? If so, you came to the right blog today. Every year so many different styles and colors of sandals and sneakers come out, so here are a few of the ones you definitely don’t want to miss out on.

They say you should never spend more than $10 on flip flops. This probably means that flips flops are usually just a flop so why not flip your style over to something better, pool sliders. A dressy, yet causal sandal that you can wear with any outfit and around the pool on a hot day. It won’t even matter if you get thrown in the water “by mistake” with them on. They’re all around awesome with good quality and never over $40.

Dressy Mules, also know as slip on heels, are perfect for summer as they are dressy and easy to slip right on and off. Another easy shoe is the slip on loafer. The loafers been given a little twist because you can wear these at the office and get a little air to your feet if your workplace is lacking air conditioner or if you’re just warm from working hard. Whatever you do for a living, they’re here to help you cool down.

Something causal; sneakers are here in vibrant, beautiful colors. When you’re off work, switch into a pair for the gym or just to wine down. You can find wedges dressed up in a variety of different color shades and patterns too. If you’re going out after work, a night on the town calls for something sensual. Lace up heels are amazing with a little black dress or club outfit. If you want to be bold, put some platforms on for size and metallic or stripes! Chunky block heels will make you feel happy and glamorous as they can dress up any casual outfit. So be there and be square with the chunky block heels and the rest of these styles and you’ll be set for summer.


Did You Know

Sometimes when you think you’ve seen it all, you find that you really haven’t.  But that’s OK because exploring new things is always fun. I’m going to touch up on any little trend details  that I haven’t magnified for summer yet. Micro cleats, a small  bit of texture added to dresses and skirts, are great for any silhouette by adding shape and dimension while not being too obvious.

Skirts and dresses have also come out with microprints and bold patterns in tiny floral. Another pattern trend called Gingham, known as a checkered print usually worn by children, has grown up this summer and can be found on mid length dresses, and shirts. Why not give it a shot? You might like going back to your childhood for a day, all while looking chic and stylish. Speaking of chic, did you know that nautical stripes are popping out everywhere? Meaning that simple nautical stripes, whether on your top or bottom as shorts or pants, are turning into a piece to go with bright, solid colors. For example, a nautical tee with a pair of bright salmon or lime green shorts. Bingo, we have a winner, the cutest outfit combination of summer! Or at least in my opinion. I think you may like it too.

Also, going back a couple blogs ago, I told you about off the shoulder trends, well there is also an elegant trend  in dresses and dressy tops that secures around the neck area. Still leaving the shoulders to breath, this look is perfect for those who don’t like lowcut tops. Another dressy trend, ruffles, is best worn loose and soft.

Did you know that plain white t-shirts can be worn with dressy outfits? Try one with a flowy, light weight skirt or tucked into dress pants for a unique look. This look is seen on the runways for summer and gives you a lighter weight option for those humid work days or fancy outside events. If you didn’t know, now you do. Be inspired to add these few small details to your summer wordrobe and you’ll be walking down your own runway every single day.
