What woman doesn’t love shoes? Well, get ready because spring 2017 shoe trends give us even more shoe styles to love this season.
Ankle straps and ties
This season the trend of laces, wraps, ties, and straps continues. Expect lots of ankle straps, ties, and buckles. Flat, kitten heels, pumps and even booties showcase everything from intricate wraps and simple ankle straps.
Look for platforms (or the “flatform”, the flat platform sandal) in wood, leather and crepe soles. And lots of espadrilles in many varied heights.
The ladylike kitten heel gets lots of attention this spring. This heel type goes from almost flat to high heels and from simple, basic colors to brights and patterns in pumps, boots and slingbacks.
Spring fashion showcases the athleisure trend in clothing and that continues into footwear too. Look for athletic inspired textures, chic sneakers, laces and running shoe soles to accompany spring’s gym aesthetic.
Don’t put away fall’s booties just yet. Many brands showcase booties in lighter color and textures for spring, many with perforated or using woven leather. Pair with jeans, pants and even floral dresses for a bit of an edge.
Embroidery and embellishments
Spring’s shoes are bringing detailing into this season. Embroidery and embellishments like studs, nailhead trim, and bright patterns adorn heels, flats, sandals and boots.
The backless shoe trend continues with Spring 2017. Mules range from loafers to backless booties to high heeled sandals in a multitude of colors from basic to metallic.
We’ve assembled some of the best of the trends below in styles that look terrific on women over 40.
