Spring Kicks

Spring Shoe Trends 2While we eagerly await the warmer weather and longer days that spring inevitably has in store for us, we’ve been getting up to date on our favorite spring trends like the ruffle and mixed prints.  It’s not every season, though, that shoe trends are so unique themselves.  From tassels to lucite heels, I explored this season’s new trends over on the new Bethenny.com.  Have you checked it out?  I can hardly wait for her show to launch in the fall.  In the meantime, though, do peruse her fun and always helpful site!  To rock our first shoe trend, the lucite heel, try to keep the color palette light or colorful.  The clear heel looks great with pastels and lighter colored denim.

Spring Shoe TrendsWhile commonly associated with the preppy penny loafer, these tassels are anything but conservative.  They add a fun, bohemian accent to an otherwise traditional summer sandal.

I know we have all been brainwashed to believe that an ankle strap is unflattering– and it can be– but if worn correctly it can also be really chic.  Pair these with a skinny cropped pant or keep the dress or shorts on the shorter side to elongate the leg.
