The Holidays might be over – but not the killer parties. There's still a blurry mix of year-end celebrations and local festivities to don your MissVixen Rave Wear to. Not sure what to pair with your glittery clubwear dresses or that pretty cocktail ensemble? Look no further than the top seven spring and summer shoe trends of 2014.
Comfort is in this season. Say goodbye to aches and pains in the name of fashion. Ballet flats are not only the answer to your dainty dilemmas; they provide maximum comfort without looking slapdash. Plus, they go great with almost everything. This year, bold bright colors are all the rage – so be sure to pick up a pair in solid hues or with oriental embroideries.
Chunks are not only delicious in cookie crumbles and caramel toffee ice creams – they're a staple nowadays too. Make your feet happy with these shoes no matter the season. Their thick heels allow for more balance and less fashion mishaps whether on or off the catwalk. Another upside is that many designers are decorating them with offbeat embellishments like gold accents, suede fabric, and wild drawings.
Wedges are back with vengeance. This year will see to quirky cutouts that will leave shoe lovers speechless. These designs can either be on the wedge heels or on the shoe itself (like the straps). When choosing these baddies, look for something with daring tints and stylish wide straps. Shades in burgundy, white, forest green, or a combination of all three are certain to be a hit with your wardrobe.
There's no question as to why these shoes should be in vogue. Pumps have long been hailed a fashion essential in every woman's wardrobe; so this trend is no exception. For this season, purchase pumps in feminine styles such as satin or suede. And they should be pointed, of course. Choose from a wide selection of gorgeous slingbacks to kitten heels.
Bet on your dollar that the gladiator heels are here for yet another roaring year. Tie them up around your ankles up to your knees to get an instant 'oomph' to any summer getup. Not a fan of sexy Roman fashion? There are plenty of other reasonable options: cutouts, laces, or studded; they're the perfect flat companions for a day at the beach or a quick errand around the block.
Would you be caught dead wearing these?
