With the weather warming up, it is time to strut the streets with style. Many women think that that means spending a lot of money on that new spring wardrobe. However, you can look trendy by making just a small change in your wardrobe.
This season, footwear broke new ground with some understated styling that flashed back to the simple era of pumps and minimalist sandals. But don’t worry: sky-high wedges and chunky platforms aren’t going anywhere just yet. Aldo has a great selection for anywhere between $100-$150. Pair these with a simple mini skirt or a pair of your last season’s wide leg pants. Why not try a pair for under $30 at Payless; with its wide ankle cuff, you will be spotted strutting the 2nd trend “ankle cuffed.”
Spring 2012 chalky pastels have become the new sophisticate colour palette. Add colour and pop to that staple black or white trench coat with a pair of chalk pastel heels or to wear with that floral skirt.
Once again, Aldo has a variety of shades at $90, or try American Eagle’s pastel yellow wedge for $19.99.
No Frill or Fuss
Keeping it classy with no frills or fuss, single-sole sandals with minimal straps proved that effortless styling is often the best way to go. Choose colour block straps for a playful touch and then pair these sandals easily with everything from feminine skirts to your skin-tight pants from last season.
White is the New Black
All of us have those white pumps stuck in the back of our closet in every fabric from crochet to matte leather finish. Well, it’s time to dig deep and take them out as white is the new black. Pair this shoe with those bright pants you own or go for a monochrome look.
Now you’re ready to take a walk down Yonge Street.
