Your Guide to Every Spring Shoe Trend, Every Price

Apr 1 2014 - 10:48am

Armed with pedicures, iced coffees, and a fresh outlook, we're ready to take on Spring's new crop of footwear. Whether you're a glam girl, tomboy, or sophisticate, we highly suggest you slip out of your comfort zone and into Spring's set of ankle-strap pumps, Summer-camp-inspired sandals and sneakers, and the modern reimagining of the mule. Truthfully, there's something for everyone and — after a little digging at our favorite brands — at every price, too. Just flip through to see all six of the season's biggest trends, or jump to shop exactly what you're after!

Ankle-Strap Pumps

Why we love them: Is there anything more sophisticated than the ankle-strap pump? It's the even-sexier sister of your high-heeled pumps, adding a bit of intrigue with all that attention on the ankle.

How to wear them: Use them to add some sex appeal to boyfriend jeans (with the hem cuffed just enough to show off the details of your shoe). They're also the perfect shoe to finish a posh office ensemble.

Spring/Summer Booties

Why we love them: It's a shoe that marries the best parts of a boot, like the structure and support, with the Spring appeal of open-toed shoes. They're just a bit fashion forward, but they go with everything and manage to feel just a bit sexier than our regular sandals or boots, too.

How to wear them: Don't fear the wow factor; embrace it. Just let your footwear do the talking, and keep the rest simple. Try a lace-up pair with skinny jeans and a button-down for a night out, or work a wedged pair into your festival style.

Sneakers

Why we love them: These kicks have evolved from gym gear to full-fledged fashion purchase. With all the iterations out there, there's even more to love.

How to wear them: Add athletic-inspired pairs to leather shorts and a tee for a stylish play on weekend wear, or add a simpler style like Adidas [26] Stan Smiths to skinny pants and a blazer for an elevated (but still totally comfortable) way to rock the look.

Summer Camp Sandals

Why we love them: The new take is way better than the Tevas and Birkenstocks we wore in middle school. This time, bold color stories, sleek wedges, and patterned straps lend style to the famous silhouettes.

How to wear them: You don't need your Summer camp uniform to make these work. In fact, the effect is much cooler if you stick to chicer pieces, like slim-fit pants and a classic striped tee with a pair of pool slides [36] or a minidress and leather jacket with a pair of strappy track-soled sandals.

Mules

Why we love them: This comeback is sleeker and more sophisticated than it was in the '70s or '90s. Heels are higher, wedges are slimmer, and the open-toed versions are like a chic upgrade on our favorite sandals.

How to wear them: Show off a pair of pointed-toe mules at the office with a pencil skirt and sharp button-down, then reserve wedges and open-toed varieties for breezy Spring dresses on weekends and dinners out.

Sheer

Why we love it: It's the next best thing to going barefoot — and it makes a lot more of a statement. Just like our Spring look, these are all about lightening up.

How to wear it: Opt for mesh and sheer sandals or espadrilles with a breezy sundress, but you can totally take the look to work, too, as long as you opt for a mesh loafer or a silhouette with that same professional vibe. Just add them to a pencil skirt or cropped trousers for an easy at-the-office ensemble.
