April showers bring May flowers, and spring brings...fun new shoes!  Now that the snow has finally melted, it’s time to pack away your boring winter boots and bring out some cute, comfy styles to help you transition into warmer, happier days.  If you’re anything like me though, finding the perfect style for ever-changing spring weather poses a bit of a challenge.  After all, how do you get used to wearing sandals again when one day it’s a sunny 68 degrees, and the next it’s a chilly 45?  Luckily, I’ve done my share of research (and by research, I mean searched Pinterest), and have compiled the perfect list of 5 fun shoe trends you have to try this spring!


Flirty Flats / Block Heels / Stylish Sneakers / Sassy Espadrilles / Ankle Boots

1) Flirty Flats

Pretty, simple, and professional, flats are the perfect compliment to almost any outfit.  While not a new concept, this spring’s styles are certainly stepping it up. For example, try lace-up flats in fun pastels or go-to black.  Try a pointed-toe twist on your basic ballet flat, or check out fringy flats for a boho chic vibe.

2) Block Heels

Heading out for girl’s night?  Ditch the stilettos and check out spring’s block heel trend.  Not only will you look adorable, but your feet will thank you.  My favorite block heel trends this year include color block, open-toed, or simple sandals in slate gray or suede neutral tones.  They pair perfectly with your favorite nighttime outfit, but can also take your daytime look to new levels.

3) Stylish Sneakers

My favorite trend of the year by far, stylish sneakers are perfect for a busy day.  Pair them with your favorite leggings, a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans, or even a flirty sundress, adding an element of cool to every look.  Try fun fabrics this season, such as snakeskin slip-ons or leather high-tops.  Or put a twist on old-school tennis shoes by wearing new colors and lace-less styles.  My favorite stylish sneakers have fun accents such as zippers or chains.


These are the perfect shoes for work, class, or coffee dates with the girls, putting a polished, flirty finish on any ensemble.


4) Sassy Espadrilles

Espadrilles are vital to a fresh, girly style that never fades!  This season, try ‘flatform’ espadrilles, knee-high lace-ups, and adorable patterns such as stripes and stars.  Or, kick back in simple espadrille flats with fun sayings or color-blocked embroidery.  These are the perfect shoes for work, class, or coffee dates with the girls, tying your outfit together and putting a polished, flirty finish on any ensemble.

5) Ankle boots

Perfect for the chillier days, ankle boots are a must-have for spring.  Not only are they weather friendly, they add a laid back, sophisticated vibe to any pair of jeans or your favorite skirt.  This season step up your ankle boot game with trends such as cut outs, buckles, or open-toed booties.  You can also try wedge boots in electric blues or animal prints for a fun twist on a classic look.

While the weather may be a bit unpredictable, your shoe game doesn’t have to be!  Put a spring in your step with these adorable trends, and I guarantee you’ll be prepared for style in any situation.
