1- Butterfly Sandals
You will be hard-pressed to find a more bohemian style than the butterfly sandals seen on the runway at the Anna Sui S/S 2014 show. She offered a variety of pretty styles in different colors and styles like the purple sandal boots with gold stud details or the dark green flat sandals with brown butterfly detail on the front ankle. These styles present so many stylish possibilities! Try wearing these shoes with sundresses or with polo tees and shorts. Fashionistas can also rock these sandals to the beach or pool. These sandals will liven up your summer footwear wardrobe next season!
2- Sandal Boots
Why give up sandals just because the weather is warmer? Our favorite designers bring the best of both world by turning trendy sandals into edgier boot styles. Derek Lam really rocked this S/S 2014 show with knee-high boot sandals. These gorgeous boots feature snap tab detailing on the front on the leg all the way down to the top of the shoe. These amazing sandals were made for shorter dresses and denim cut-off shorts. If you’re looking for a fun way to really dress it up, consider pairing these shoes with a tailored shorts suit.
3- Chunky Heels
Stilettos have their place but chunky heels have that edge which is sometimes craved for in fashion. Miu Miu introduced a revamped Mary Jane style shoe with a platform an chunky heel. These shoes were made for jeans of all styles as well as leggings, skirts, dresses, shorts, and more. These heels will add depth and style to just about anything you choose to pair them with. You’ll also want to wear these fabulous heels with trendy party or date night looks. A great pair of chunky heels will offer more style possibilities!
