Maybe it’s Carrie Bradshaw’s fault or because our mind plays tricks on us and leads us to believe that because shoes are smaller in size than clothes, that means we are spending less money. Whatever the reason is, the reality is that, when it comes to fashion, there’s nothing like a great pair of shoes to finish off our look. We are all guilty of buying new shoes for no reason whatsoever, but really, a new pair will just give that old black dress or those over worn denim jeans new life.
With summer just around the corner, filling our nights with weddings, barbecues, parties and other social events to help melt the stress of winter away, having shoes for every occasion is more of a necessity during this time (at least that’s the excuse we have told ourselves today.) The best part of this excuse is that there are so many to choose from — 5 inch heels and pumps, loafers and brogues, sandals and ballet slippers…
So which shoes should you buy this season? Well, the following are our top five which we cannot wait to get our hands on!

They sound like a bore but actually, granny shoes, with their Chanel alluding color block design, are the shoes of the season. Paired with a midi dress for work or worn with denim jeans for a casual summer dinner gathering, these shoes are elegant, vintage-inspired and so corky, your feet will get a lot of attention.

Utterly feminine, comfortable and perfect for both day or night looks, lace up ballet pumps are still as huge this season as they were the previous one. Pair them with anything from midi skirts to short shorts, playsuits, culottes or peg trousers and channel your inner ballerina.

Another 90s trend that is making its comeback, the mule is stepping front and center this season and giving us all a break from tying our shoes. There are so many ways you can work a mule — from platform ones to flats and even heels.

Slip on Espadrilles
When your days or your nights are spent on a sandy beach swimming, lounging or looking at the stars, then you need the right shoes to slip on and off effortlessly. Slip on espadrilles are perfect for those beach days and easier to put on and off than a sandal, so you can be as lazy as you feel like.

When you want to add height and show off those legs, then sky high heels will do the trick. Add drama to your legs this summer with elaborate caged heels with intricate straps that hit right on the ankle or go all the way up to your knees and look like a roman goddess this summer.
These are the top five shoe trends which we are loving this season. Which ones can’t you wait to get your hands on? Share your thoughts below!
