Spring Footwear Styling And Trends

Spring is probably the most difficult time when it comes to choosing appropriate footwear; it needs to be comfortable and practical as well as look great and is able to withstand lots of different weather from those sunny Spring days to the dreaded April showers.

Its also a season when we want to move away from the clumpy boots weve had to put up with through Autumn and Winter, but cant yet wear those cute sandals weve had in the back of our wardrobes since last Summer, so finding a comfortable middle ground often proves to be quite a fashion conundrum.

If youre still not sure its time to put the boots away then stick to shoe boots or ankle boots; theyre the most versatile style of footwear for all seasons and theyll make sure your feet stay dry if it pours but wont be too warm if were lucky enough to get a nice day. Ankle boots and shoe boots also work really well with tights and leggings.

Trend setters will love that brogues are back for Spring 2011 and whats more is that theyre perfect for the weather too; with a full shoe design, flat sole and comfortable fit, womens brogues are probably the best choice when it comes to Spring shoes and theyre so fashionable too.

Youre probably safe to bring out the ballerina pumps at this time of year too, but make sure you wear a pair that have a sturdy sole that wont leak water just in case of any showers, otherwise youll end up with soggy feet and soggy shoes. Its the same with loafers here too; they look set to come back into the footwear trends and theyll be ideal for Spring weather too.

If youre looking for the ideal pair of heels for Spring then go for something with a closed toe and full shoe shape; that way your feet wont get wet on a night out. A simple round toe court shoe will work well, while wedges with a thick platform sole will be a good substitute if you really prefer open shoes because they have higher platform soles.

Footwear tips for Spring:

- If its still a little bit too chilly to go bare legged then pop on a pair of tights or leggings with your dresses and skirts for a warmer feel.
- A pair of knitted knee high socks are a funky alternative to tights and leggings and work really with the hippy chic look thats so hot right now.
- Dont forget those April showers, closed shoes will work best, you dont want to be caught out in sandals or open toed shoes.
- Try not to divide your shoes into different seasons; of course some boots will only work for colder seasons, but lots of shoes will work all year round.
- Everyone needs a few pairs of flat ballerina pumps, theyre so easy to wear and you can even slip a pair into your handbag just in case.

When it comes to choosing colours for Spring try and go for something a little brighter and cheerier than the browns and blacks of Winter, its the ideal time to bring your wardrobe to life ready Summer. Pastel colours are always fashionable in Spring and youll be able to carry them through to the warmer months too, while metallics and bold shades will work well whatever the season.

Spring is also a great time to add a girly touch to your look with pretty shoes; go for bows, frills or rosettes on your shoes, theyre all big trends for Spring 2011 too so not only will you look cute, but youll also be a fashion setter among your friends.
