With summer months just around the corner, the desire to put away some of those extensive winter boots that you have blocking your hallway is certainly creeping in and with the retirement of your current army of footwear you will be looking to replace them with something more on trend, so let me help you out with that.
Naturally there are going to be a number of different styles of shoes and boots that are going to be making an appearance with the way that the modern trend cycle seems to come around, so don’t be set on reaching for those gladiator sandals just yet as there are a couple of different types that are going to be making a case this year.
Dress them up or dress them down, the fact is that sandals are as versatile as a nude coloured mac coat is and their appearance in the style world is a dead certainty with the possibility of warmer weather and will be certainly on the list of things that you need to take with you on your holidays.
Looking at how things are starting to pan out with the release of the the latest collections from some of the major fashion houses, we are once again going to see the rise of the gladiator, strappy sandal with a metallic finish.
Think about adding a gold and silver pair into your next wardrobe boosting trip as their ability to make everything from jeans and skirts through to dresses look fantastic is going to make them a key part of your shoe army this summer.
Above the Knee Boots
We saw the buzz surrounding the above the knee boots coming into play as we began to reach the latter end of the winter season and they continued to hold strong in the fashion stakes into the Spring 17 season but their success isn’t likely to fade away just because the sun might be coming out.
What we will see is that there will be a shift in the material of the boots, with suede in mono-tonal colours likely to be the front runners this time around.
Again a versatile addition to your wardrobe, they can serve you throughout the day or can help to dress up your evening outfit while making sure that the UK’s summer rain is kept at bay.
If like many of my friends, you suffer from smaller calves that can make these boots almost impossible to keep above the knee, you need to be trying to find a style that are designed for your calf size, so keep an eye out for boots for skinny legs, there will be plenty about online but can be harder to spot on the high street.
Peep Toe Flats
Okay I know that flats aren’t the most loved choice for many women due to their lack of heel to make you look taller but as the summer heat begins to fill the air, you will be glad for the added cooling system, believe me!
This isn’t the first time that peep toes flats have become a summer trend, with brands such as Vivienne Westwood making a solid stand in this area with those almost rubber styled flats with the love heart decal proving to be a huge seller however it seems that leather is certainly not the way to go with this one, after all we aren’t dressing for a business meeting are we?
Think about taking a look at more neutral colours and avoid getting drawn into the ‘white goes with everything mentality’.
