We are already accustomed to try out some clear and pure pallets for spring and summer, however designers cannot stop surprising us every season with cool add-ons. Stones and studs seem to be on our lists this season so forget all about dull and boring shoes. Nudes and gold tones have hit the runways and they are addorned and shinny. You can wear these options with intense brights or blacks.
Black and Metallics
Cutting edge heels, lace and platforms are just some of the styles that make a note-worthy spring look. I’ve picked these unique styles from Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander McQueen S/S RTW Collections because they really are stunning. I love the all black embellishments and the soft golden straps. Mixed materials were cool last season but they are more dramatic now, so be careful not to push this trend too far on real life style. However, you could go for a peep toe shinny ankle boot to get the hottest look when you’re having a night out.
Brights are a hit color for shoes this season and lots of designers have tried these intense shades. Even if they mixed them with metallics or other shades and materials, this style is poised to become famous. I love the charming Louis Vuitton shoes and I’ve even found a cheaper version at BEBE (actually they have lots of other runway inspired options). Wear intense colors with pastels and coordinating nail polish or accessories.
Floral detailing and mettalic marbles, T-bars, ankle straps or even zippers have dazzled the runway collections for S/S 2009. You can easily match these options with simple T-shirts or casual jeans because they are already accessorized! I particularly love the Dries Van Noten shoes beacuse they bring metallics to the table and they are cool when going out .
