There may be a wild color explosion happening in your local mall, so be sure to have a pair of sunnies handy for shopping. You see, all signs point to fantastic color combos as spring and summer’s most popular fashion statement. Which is super fun, but not very practical if you do anything that requires you to have a somewhat-subdued appearance.
All is not lost though. You can still play with this season’s high-impact colors and styles, just in smaller doses. When the trends go big and bold, we say go shoe shopping! Color is the name of the game this season, and we’re already seeing shoes dressed up with everything from assertive florals to vivid primaries. Get inspired with our top 10 picks for on-trend, budget-friendly spring shoes.
Top 10 On-trend Spring Shoes
Pretty Floral Pump
This season, we get to flip the script on the old floral dress and solid-color shoe partnership. Try a pretty floral pump with an a-line skirt that lands just above the knee. Or for a more casual, resort-inspired feel, pair these heels with a white crop pant and a peach-colored blouse. Add a dark-wash denim jacket if it’s cool outside.
Wear these feminine slingbacks on your casual days with denim that lands at or above your ankle. Crop pants, capris, skirts and a longer short would all pair well. For brunch, reach for a flowy sundress in a solid color (take your pick from the pattern of the shoe).
The slight platform on this shoe gives you a little bit of height, which is a nice perk if you’re on the smaller side.
The peep-toe bootie is a classic choice for transitional spring weather and to bridge the gap between your work and off-duty wardrobes. This bootie from Sbicca almost looks Monet-inspired, with its soft gray-blue floral pattern. Combine this shoe with any cool-toned, ankle-bearing pant for the office. After work, change into a red dress and hit the town with the girls.
Bold Print Sneaker
No spring shoe collection is complete without a sneaker option. These tropical print Vans step up your sneaker look with a nice pop of color. You can wear these with nearly any casual short, skirt, dress or jean.
This is a work wedge that will make an outfit out of your standard pencil skirt and white blouse. The colors of this shoe are upbeat, but it still maintains ‘professional standards’ with the low heel and simple shape.
