Calling all shoe-lovers! This Spring, get ready to adorn a new collection of heels, boots, flats and a dozen other footwear styles. What kinds of things can you expect? Designers such as Louis Vuitton are emphasizing ease, wear-ability, a bit of embellishment and fringe and some blasts from the past like block heels and flat-forms.
The following are exciting new shoe trends to expect for the Spring 2015 collection:
High stilettos and pointed toes still convey great power and independence, but you can expect them with ankle straps and sling backs like Vuitton’s Sparkles Pump. Even with these minor alterations, power pumps are still a classic that every woman must have in her closet.
Lace-up sandals are a must-have this Spring. You can find them tied up at the calf or the ankle, and look great with a pair of khaki shorts or a short skirt such as Vuitton’s Curves Sandal.
Footwear meets the Wild West this spring. You can expect tough materials, metal hardware, spurs, and subtle “western” shapes like Vuitton’s Free Ride High Boot or the Valley Ankle Boot. The Western influence in footwear makes a bold statement.
This Spring, flats are anything but average. The trend is to ride low and reveal a demure and slim silhouette, awakening the inner ballerina. They are dressed up to wear in the evening with your party outfit or casual with a touch of bling. You can find them in an array of designs from multi-strap buckles and embellishments to fringe and feathered details. Vuitton’s Splendor Sandal, Reflection Ballerina, or Trompe L’Oeil Sandal are perfect examples of how sandals can be worn in the evening to a fancy dinner or party.
Expect colour in your footwear this Spring! Two and even three tone colour blocks can be found in ankle-straps, sandals, and slides. Vuitton’s Eyeline Pump or Precious Slipper are perfect examples of footwear adorning more than just one colour! They are a perfect way to add interest and a bit of pizzazz to your outfit.
With subtle references to the decade that introduced block heels to the world, it is only natural that flat forms make a comeback this Spring. Vuitton’s Sunflower Sandal is a subtle homage to the 70s.
This is the heel to have this Spring even surpassing stilettos! Vuitton’s Good Times Sandal or the Artful Sandal are perfect examples of how a block heel can be supportive and still look elegant.
Mules are a great way to go minimal but still appear chic, with a 90’s attitude, such as Vuitton’s Favourite Mule.
Heels are getting up there with a little help from platforms and tie ups, such as Vuitton’s Golden Hour Sandal or Lucky Rings Sandal.
Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2015 Women’s Shoe Collection is about options. From sky-high platforms, to lace-ups, chic flats, killer gladiators and Western-influenced designs, this collection is as diversified as you can get!
