Although we live in a country where the word ‘spring’ is not a universal, unspoken symbol of ‘sunshine and soft breeze’, but usually becomes the equivalent to ’72 hours of constant rain’ or ‘hailstorm’, we surely all dream of ditching those chunky, black boots or wellies and letting our feet breathe, while roaming the streets in something lighter, brighter and mood lifting.
Here are a few trendy shoe options we picked out for all of the girls living in the UK, to wear on upcoming, hopefully dry, spring days and nights.
This seemingly unattractive, sport-associated footwear, has been very successful in proving how trendy, versatile and most importantly, comfortable, it can really be, even when worn not just with trackies, but also dresses. Although this spring will most likely be all about chunky, all-white trainers (such as Nike Air Force 1’s), we went for a metallic pair to really jazz up any blue jeans and tee combo and make you look put together for a 9 am seminar. They would also make for an amazing addition to any LBD, so you can party in style and comfort this season.
If you are one of those girls, who have never worn flats again after hitting puberty, but do crave something else than those massive leather platforms, we’ve got two smaller, yet powerful choices for you. Slingbacks and kitten heels might sound very aunt-like and boring, but the right shape and colour can do wonders – these pointed block heels will go really well with shift dresseA Fresh Step Into Sprins, the raspberry pair is made for boyfriend jeans and cigarette trousers – stylish, comfy, and still high enough to save you from a ‘hobbit legs’ disaster!
What do we love the most about ballerinas and loafers? They come back every season, but have enough variations to them to never make you bored. In terms of colours, we fell in love with mustard and cobalt (sorry, Pantone) – preferably worn together for a juicy, springtime look. Pointed shape and cut outs in the ballerina flats make them more womanly and interesting, whereas the classic suede loafer in a strong colour will never let you down – no matter if you like skirts, skater dresses or skinny jeans, these two styles simply don’t go out of… style.
