Spring Shoe Trends: The Understated Heel
After watching the Dries Van Noten, Givenchy, and Salvator Ferragamo shows last fall, it’s obvious that minimalism is making a comeback. Classic, single sole sandals ruled the runway in colors ranging from simple black to totally-out-there turquoise. The great thing about this trend is it can be easily adapted to fit any style, the minimalist silhouette allowing you to take risks in other areas of your wardrobe.
The peplum has been touted as the spring silhouette, and its curvy shape looks just right with a classic heel. However, this style should be carefully adapted to fit your own personal body type. Straight figures should choose flared styles that enhance their curves, while hourglass shapes should pick fitted peplums that hug the body. I love this look with a pair of cat eye sunglasses and a boxy clutch. Going from day to night? Throw on a studded belt and attention grabbing accessory for maximum impact.
