Take a moment and think of things that make you happy. If you’re like me, you would not blink twice before saying, “pretty shoes make me happy !
I love me a pretty ( Bonus : if it’s comfortable ) pair of shoes. Plus, isn’t it amazing how a simple pair of shoes can either make or break an outfit?! Shoes are just one of those magical items – they can even manage to change your entire outfit’s vibe in two seconds flat. Desk to date night? It’s all in the shoes! So obviously, once a new season rolls around, a new pair of shoes (or two or five) is a must!
Fellow shoe lovers, rejoice—I’ve rounded up the best of the best summer 2016 shoe trends just for you. You and your pedicured-and-ready-for-summer feet can thank me later!
Pom Poms: Nothing screams summer like a fun, colorful pair of sandals. And Pom poms are the cherry on top. I, myself, have invested in two Pom Pom shoes but I wouldn’t suggest splurging on these. As much as I love them and think they are oh so fun, I highly doubt we will see them on next year’s runways.
Lace Ups: : Lace-ups have been racing to the top of the #1 spot in the shoe trend charts for quite some time . I love this trend- the laces give just the right flirty, feminine facelift to the classic ballet flat. This is the perfect shoe for a girl looking to make a statement while feeling everyday appropriate and comfortable. One downside: some lace ups take some time to put on!
Mules: I’m not the biggest fan of the trend, let alone the word “mule” but I have to admit that these ugly-pretty kicks pack plenty of throwback appeal and will give any outfit — whether 9-to-5 approved or date-night ready — a serious runway-inspired edge.
Woven sandals : Just like their predecessors, the gladiators and espadrilles, the traditional woven shoe from Mexico is getting a 2016 makeover with some rad platform heels. This might just be my new go-to summer shoe.
Summer 2016 is proving to be pretty on point in the footwear department. Which trend will you be rocking this summer? Comment and let me know- I’m always curious to know what makes other feet happy.
