Hot Spring Footwear Finds

If you haven’t updated your footwear collection for a new season, there’s no time like the present! What’s more fun than shoe shopping, we ask you? Get your fix with our picks for some of the hottest spring shoe trends. Happy shopping!

Tribal influence

Tribal influence

Spied at Donna Karan and Michael Kors, among many other spring runways, tribal-inspired print found its way onto many accessories this spring, most notably footwear. Embrace the trend and add some eye-catching color to your wardrobe with these bold wedge heels in an all-over tribal print (, $100).

Sunny sorbet hues

Sunny sorbet hues

From Yves Saint Laurent to Louis Vuitton, shades of sorbet-inspired hues brightened up spring runways. From pinks that pop to greens that get noticed, warmer weather is all about adding cheerful, sunny shades to your footwear collection. We love these pink platform strappy sandals with a sky high heel and a fringe back tassel (, $220). The pink is perfectly reminiscent of strawberry sorbet.

Bright whites

Bright whites

If the spring runways were any indication, white footwear is a sure fire style hit. Pucci and Alexander Wang showed us that white has staying power and will continue to be a fashion force to be reckoned with through spring and summer. Embrace your feminine side with these pretty House of Harlow white lace wedges (, $275) with a cork heel.



Altuzarra, Alexander McQueen and Giambattista Valli all went gaga for garden-themed footwear this spring and we can’t help but love the push toward all things petal-powered we’re seeing this season. Check out this cute (and budget-friendly) pair of floral flats (, $20). Wear with a sundress or denim skirt for simple spring style.

Almond toe shoe

Ankle strap

Diane von Furstenberg showed us feminine heels with dainty ankle straps, a trend echoed among several other designers this spring. Delicate, polished and totally elegant, we can’t get enough of this footwear feature. Make these chic almond-toe flats with a slim ankle strap your go-to, go-with-anything spring shoes (, $110).

Raffia wedges

Raffia wedges

Carolina Herrera and Ralph Lauren both showcased wedge heels in rustic raffia for spring. We’re partial to this simple but stylish pair (with an on-trend ankle strap) in a soft shade of sandy beige (, $250). They add an easy elegance to anything from shorts to sundresses.

Watch: Two looks with one pair of jeans

Today on the Daily Dish, personal stylist Fawn Cheng shows you how to have two different looks with one pair of jeans.

Im so excited that the wedge trend is back. I like to where tall shoes to work but my poor feet can stand up all day in heals. This seams to be a perfect compromise. Emma Try out Cathy Jean, i think they have a less expensive wedge your looking for

If only those lace wedges weren't so expensive! I adore them and would love to have them in my collection! A girl can never have enough pairs of shoes. I'm not sure how I feel about the raffia wedges, I feel like that style was popular a few years ago and died out. I like shoes that will last!
