Yellow Toes. Some Serious Slingback

Zara Yellow Flats

It’s a new season, which means there is a new excuse to be completely enamored with a new trend in the footwear department.

Take one step forward and enter the slingback into the conversation.

With modern styling, and interesting colors and adornments, this shoe is not reserved solely for older style mavens anymore. Dior featured a bow version of the slingback in its spring show and Moschino made a statement with the an electric red, stiletto version they debuted in their spring offering. Each proving that a pair of slingback shoes can be a fresh statement for any outfit.

Wear your own set of slingbacks as a comfortable pair of flats, or add another staple to your collection of heels with the elevated versions. Either way, the slingback shoe is THE piece of footwear to own this season.

New In. Ankle-Strapped for Spring

 

ASOS One Wish Heels 

It should come as no surprise that straps have made their way back to their rightful place: on my feet around the ankle.

The trend has come and gone for several years, but this season has offered up an assortment of silhouettes and styles. From the thin-strapped metallic sandals that were attached to the model’s feet at Reem Acra, to the wrap around, tie straps that House of Holland created in a playful gingham print, this spring trend is as versatile as it is fashionable.

The REALLY exciting thing about this trend though?

It has been prevalent for so many seasons now (ankle straps are the LBD of footwear), that it is just as easy to don a pair that you already have in your closet. However, you can modernize them by layering a sock underneath like the label Off-White did for their latest runway presentation.

Just remember that with whatever silhouette or style you chose, have a little fun with the trend.
