Spring’s Best Shoe Trends

We like to think of Spring as the most appropriate time to invest in new shoes. You’ve got your pick of both open-toed styles and boots you’ll probably end up wearing year round. Not to mention, there’s a feel-good vibe in the warm air that should inspire you to create outfits with a little more flavor. And we happen to believe the foundation of an eye-catching look starts with solid footwear.

To encourage a closet refresh, we’ve curated a list of the season’s biggest shoe trends, all of which are surely bolder than the ones you’ve tried before. Scroll through a wide range of options, or jump straight ahead to the silhouette you’re searching for.

Rounded Heels

There is just something about geometrically shaped heels that gets our blood boiling and seeing the spring 2017 footwear trends including the circular designs is certainly pleasantly surprising.

Sneakers

You could say sneakers have replaced high heels, they are having a moment!

Open Back Footwear

Open back footwear is totally in and we are not just talking mules either.

Ultra Platforms

Stand tall in over-the-top platform sandals this season. Pair them with your Summer dress or jeans and a tee for an instant standout look.

Slider Comfort Fantasy

Flip-flops were once a huge thing on the streets, particularly in the ‘90s. Now, we have some funky sliders appearing instead, something we noticed last spring as well. They are flats with a laid back presentation.

Finally there’s a comfort shoe that doesn’t look like one!

KLIK Footwear was born when shoe experts and long-time friends, Nancy Olicker and Amy Sprung first met.

As two motivated, busy, self-proclaimed fashionistas, they needed a comfortable shoe that could be worn all day long, without having to sacrifice style. But it didn’t exist. KLIK Footwear combines chic design and classic style with comfort materials. They’ve created the fashion-forward comfort shoe.

Marie Laure is driven by a desire to give each piece of jewelry its own unique spirit. Her inspiration goes beyond the boundaries of the pre-established fashions. She seeks out vintage pearls, ribbons, and old lace. These basic elements undergo a transformation, blending couture and jewelry, as she enriches them with hand embroidery and wraps pearls in turbans of muslin, silk and leather. The collection is made up of long sautoir necklaces and manchette cuff bracelets.

During many trips abroad, Marie Laure came to admire artisanal gold and silver work from many ethnicities from around the globe. From this was born LUXUME, her second collection, with Secret Box pendants, solid silver and silk charm bracelets, and long, dangling earrings dipped in gold and ruthenium.

A Chanel bag is officially the best financial investment you could make…

As if we needed another reason to lust after the latest Chanel bag, a new study has revealed that buying one of the Parisian label’s iconic styles could potentially be a safer financial bet than buying a house. Fabulous news, isn’t it?

People often harp on about how certain clothing items are ‘investment pieces’, and often we’ve just used the term as an excuse to buy something we probably shouldn’t. But a classic Chanel 2.55, it seems, really is a money-maker after all.

The research, conducted by experts at vintage handbag authority Baghunter, found that in the last six years alone, the value of Chanel bags had increased by a massive 70%.
When the iconic Chanel 2.55 flap bag first launched in February 1955, its retail price was $220, around £154. By the 90s, its price had hit $1,150 and today, it’ll set you back $4,900.

Another BagHunter report, released back in January, focused on Hermes’ iconic Birkin bag and found that this classic’s value increased by 14.2% year-on-year, making them a better investment than stocks or gold.

To sum up, it seems, we should all go and buy one of each, today!
