Best in Shoe: Spring 2013 Trends

My favorite topic, shoes! I could shop and browse shoes all day, every day. I am always eager to see the new trends in shoes each season, and this season the trends are very wearable. I have compiled several options in some of springs biggest shoe trends, which include floral prints, black and white, and flat-forms to name a few.

When I say these trends are very wearable, I mean most women could easily incorporate one or all of the trends. They are not trends that only the fashion world or really trendy people will wear. Black and white is such an easy combination to put together, yet it packs a big punch - these two colors have the highest contrast of any other colors. Everyone has black and white pieces in their closet. The black and white shoes would also look great with a bright colored dress or outfit.

Florals have been in the spotlight for a couple seasons now, which I think is always great to see something stick around. This would be a great accessory to add to a solid outfit to bring a little interest without going too bold. I also think floral pumps look great with cropped boyfriend jeans; I love the really feminine detail of the floral print and pump mixed with the not so feminine silhouette of the boyfriend jean.

Personally, I am pretty excited about the flatforms. I do not like to wear flats because I am so short, but we all know there is a time and a place for 4 inch heels, and an outdoor concert or shopping trip with a lot of walking are not the time nor place... Flatforms give height, without compromising comfort. They are also very easy to walk in, and have a more "put together," dressed up factor than regular flip flops.
