Latest Trends in Women's Shoes

 

The fashion world is ablaze with so many fun new shoe trends this season; it's a great time to go shoe-shopping. If you're looking for some of the hottest trends in women's shoes right now, consider the stylish, fun and chic styles below.

This season, it's all about the wedge. Wedges are back in style and are more popular than ever this time around. Wedge heels can be found all over, giving an extra lift to round-toed slip-ons, espadrilles, sandals and even tall boots. Wedges offer height without discomfort; they're easy to walk in and stand on so women really love wearing them. They look especially chic right now when paired with slim-legged pants cropped to ankle length, but they also add some extra sass to casual skirts and dresses.

Booties are another extremely popular style this season. This shoe style is an updated ankle boot, a combination shoe-boot design. You'll see this style everywhere, at all price points and in many variations, from lace-ups to slip-ons and from a very abbreviated height that just covers the instep to a more traditional ankle-height boot. The great thing about the bootie--aside from its fashion-forward shape--is its versatility. Ankle boots like these can be worn with bare legs and shorts for a super-leggy look, with tights and skirts or dresses for a more dressed-up appearance or with today's trendy cropped skinny jeans and slim trousers.

Ballet flats continue to be a style trend. These have been in style for a while now, but are still going strong. Chic ballet flats come in soft leather, shiny patent leather, suede and fabric. Leopard print flats are super chic and pair perfectly with everything from jeans to casual day dresses, adding a trendy vibe to otherwise basic outfits. Best of all, ballet flats are comfortable when you want a break from high heels.

Another timely trend is the heeled loafer. This is a fun spin on classic preppy penny loafers. This time around, they're sporting a stacked heel of two to three inches--or higher. Heeled loafers are the perfect combination of conservative boyish style and feminine girly style. These heels look fabulous with a skirt suit, a pair of wide-legged or straight-legged trousers or a chic pencil skirt. They're most trendy in shades of brown, such as camel, caramel or coffee colors. These high heels really show off your legs!

Lastly, another trendy take on the masculine-feminine mix is the oxford. Flat, lace-up, menswear-inspired oxfords are sported by trendy women everywhere this season, giving an edge to everyday looks such as jeans and a tee, or maximizing the style of cropped slim trousers or a great pleated skirt. These shoes are a fun way to wear the menswear trend without going overboard.

As you can see, style options for women's shoes are plentiful! These latest trends in women's shoes are wearable, stylish, versatile and fun.
