Lets Talk: Shoes

Now that everyone is getting in the mood for Spring (atleast here in MN we are), I am going to do a post on the Fashion color trends of the season as well as what shoes you should be caught wearing this Spring/Summer season! 

Colors


Provocative Tangerine Tango, an enticing juicy orange, is a vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven anyone's outlook this spring. Providing a jolt of energy, Solar Power radiates warmth and cheer.


Fanciful Bellflower, a distinct ornamental purple, exudes uniqueness and creativity. Scintillating and sexy, Cabaret is a sensual and intense rosy-red — an excellent 
choice for summer clothing and cosmetics.

Sodalite Blue, a classic maritime hue, brings order and calmness to mind. This dependable shade works with every color in the palette. 
Cockatoo, a tactile blue-green, is sure to make your spirits soar. This unusual hue 
adds a whimsical touch to the palette and will surely make a statement this spring.

Margarita, a piquant yellow-green, lifts spirits with its refreshing and stimulating glow. Reminiscent of a blossoming garden on an early spring morning, fragrant Sweet Lilac evokes the fresh scents of summer. This delicate pinkish lilac adds a touch of romance 
to any wardrobe.

All of these women are wearing great colors to go with the trends this season. Pay attention to the bright pinks, turquoise, Tangerines of different hues and also the shoes! Kardashian is sporting a nude pointy toed- high platform pump and flats are of course the "everyday wear" shoe every girl has! What is so great about these colors is that you can mix and match them so easy!! 

Are you ready to see what shoes you should be looking for? 
Here we go!



Of course nude heels have become the new black pump. But pay attention how the heel is becoming more pointed for this season. Because pointy pumps are back in! These lovely pumps are Michael Kors, $195.

Pumps are my favorite shoe. They are so comfortable and so stylish for any occasion. Here is Michael Kors again and you can get his lovely wedge for $350. Notice also how the gold is metallic, which we will get to later.
High platform shoes are in! You can see them everywhere you go this season. with the thick heel and high platform, no need to worry about how short you are! :) This is again Michael Kors for $135.
Pointy Toed- printed heels are back! Here is a Miu Miu pump from his Sp/Summer 2012 line for $580


The traditional black pump is perfect for any occasion, but again, notice the pointy toed.. no longer round! This is Nine West for $120.
Glitter, Glam and Metallics are in! So those who like to go bold with you wardrobe, your chance is now! Here is an Alexander Mcqueen pump that he featured in this season's line. I love the heal on this! And notice the color :)

Go Big or Go Home, Right? Here is another example of the metallic bold look that designers are going for. This is a Loubiton



You cant forget the gold, sparkly, pointy toed shoe! This is a shoe I adore and would love to wear. Another way to shine this season! :)
One shoe that was featured highly in the Paris Fashion Week shows this season was the ankle strap shoe. And why wouldnt they!? They are adorable and can fit any occasion. Not only just ankle strap shoes, but buckled, lace, and sandal heels are in too! This shoe I love! 
Love these styles of the ankle strap shoes. One other type of shoe that is in this season that I didnt mention above is see- through heels. Like the top one shown here. They arent particularly my favorite but they are still rockable! ;)


And you know I cant forget about my Men viewers! Here are some great shoes that you could rock for any occasion... and you know me.. I will always say  "Dress to impress for your lady!"



This is one of my favorites. This is a Lanvin shoes that is a great color for all different color wardrobes. Perfect for a casual day.
Colors all around! These Prada Men's shoes are great for any type of day with something you want to match! Love it!

This is a tennis shoe from one of my personal favorite designers, DSquared. This is for the funky male that loves to create his own style. Love this, again lol
I have always been a huge fan of Loubiton women's shoes, but this right here is a great shoe, too! Great color, style and fit. This could fit in any man's wardrobe!

This Pierre Hardy shoe is a great example of how men can wear the color trends of the season too. Great Shoe to wear with Any light or dark colored top. This shoe would look great teamed up with a blazer!




I just had to feature a men's Tod's shoe. He is one of my favorite designers for men's shoes and although this may throw some guys off, you would be surprised how great this would look with your favorite pair of jeans. Every guy needs a pair of blue suede shoes :) HEHE



Well that wraps it up for today! Show off your personality with the great colors featured for this season and never talk yourself out of buying a great pair of shoes. Just keep in mind this season's trends and you will sure to get the double take everyone loves! :) 

Happy Thursday Everyone! :))
