The Shoes of Spring 2014 NYFW
Looking for a trendy shoe to get you through the spring 2014 season? Have no fear; the ‘best of’ list is here! I’ve curated a collection of my favorite NYFW Spring ’14 runway shoes to offer the ultimate selection for the season. Pick your favorite one or two or even three because as Marilyn Monroe so famously said, “Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she’ll conquer the world!”
Sexy Mules: These classic pointy toe stilettos with an open heel offer an updated high fashion look to the traditional “clog.” These were featured in the Altuzarra NYFW Spring 2014 show. Wear them with a straight leg pantsuit to the office for a classy fashion-forward look. White Pumps: As worn on the catwalk of the Cushnie et Ochs show, these effervescent soles are sure to keep you light on your feet. Pair with any other color dress or shirt, using the white as the accent color and stay away from muddy grass as much as possible! Eeek!Knee High Boot Sandals: Derek Lam knows how to put a twist on an existing trend. With extensive hardware and intricate leatherwork, these sandals were meant to make a statement from the beginning. Wear with skirts, dresses or shorts for a modern take on the gladiator sandal.
Ankle Cuff Heels: These gorgeous heels have some serious sass and pack a real sartorial punch! Pair with a black pencil skirt for the office and a sexy bustier dress for an evening out with your man! They are dramatic and sexy and hands down one pair of shoes that every girl should own.
Bright Pumps: J.Crew’s infamous color schemes have won my heart yet again this spring; with incredible prints and patterns all in a world of color! Try this look against some white jeans for maximum pop or don with matching pants from the same collection.Cut Out Wedges: Jill Stuart has showed us that a wedge could balance just fine with this architecturally sound design. Wear these incredible works of art and show off your sense of style and balancing abilities all in one step!
Mesh Heels: Love this trend! J Mendel’s designs have captured my heart with these perfectly feminine styles that showcase a peep through mesh in classic black and white. Perfect for the office and even better for going out!
Metallic Oxfords: Dress things up with a little glitz and glam like the girls from the Karen Walker spring ’14 show. What a great way to update your look with a shiny metallic finish combined with an organic wooden sole. Try these on with a pair of black cords for a fun mixed textured look. These lend themselves really well to the menswear for women trend I wrote about.
Ladylike Pumps: Leave it to NY designer and queen of color Kate Spade to design the perfect ladylike pump this season. With decorative soles complete with chain embellishments, bows and of course polka dots, you will be a standout in these while still adhering to classical style.
