Shoes. Just hearing that word makes me happy! There are so many gorgeous styles in stores right now, but which ones are the must-haves? Here’s our swiish guide to the season’s top shoe trends and how to wear them.
Don’t like wearing heels? Switch to wedges! Wedges are incredibly comfortable and can still be dressed up, so they will definitely see you through the party season.
We love the Tony Bianco Bebz shoe, $149.95, available from Wanted Shoes. The neutral colour works with everything, especially prints and neon. For a weekend look that works perfectly with jeans and loose t-shirts, try these Outro wedges by Dumond, $80.00 from Mollini.
Channel the stunning Lea Michele and Julianne Moore’s style in t-bar heels. Choose a pointed pair with a skinny T for a chic evening look, or work a bright chunky pair for day, like Twilight star Nikki Reed. swiish loves these sky high white Tony Bianco Capretto T-bars, $179.95.
The Embellished Flats
Those plain ballet flats you’ve been wearing this past year? Time to store them for later, because right now it’s all about embellished flats. Studs, glitter, cute prints, jewels, the choices are endless. And you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the look. We love these Lipstick Studded Gold Glitter flats, $69.95 and these Vain Velvet Lips Ballerinas, approx $34.00 from Topshop. Alexa Chung loves her Charlotte Olympia velvet kitty flats!
The Strappy Heel
Tired of wearing the same old plain platform heels? Switch it up and embrace the strappy heel trend. Strappy heels are everywhere at the moment and they are an absolute must for the summer months. Skinny straps have found their way back this season too! Where can you shop the look? Everywhere! Tony Bianco, Steve Madden, PeepToe, Wittner, ASOS and Aldo. We love these Miss Serena heels from PeepToe, $79.00 and these Steve Madden Walltz heels, $99.95.
Think Gladiator! Strappy sandals are a great casual summer flat and are perfect for sunny weather! They work perfectly with maxi dresses, mini skirts, shorts, absolutely everything! The Miss Lava shoe from Peep Toe is a bargain at only $49.00! We also love these Spurr Rhoda sandals, only $39.95 from The Iconic. If you’re looking to embrace the Heavy Metal trend, these Verali Ruby sandals are perfect! Pair them with shorts and maxi skirts and wait for the compliments to roll in! Best part – they are only $38.95 from The Iconic.
