Spring 2011 Trend: Top 5 Must Have Shoe Styles

In case you missed my guest post over at the CoolKids blog yesterday, here is my list of the Top 5 must have shoe styles for the spring/summer.  Now that the weather is warming up, it is the perfect time to evaluate your shoe collection, discard shoes you are no longer wearing, and make space for new and fun shoe styles for the warmer months.

1. wood platforms
These chunky shoes are sexy, retro and pair perfectly with the spring 70's trend, neutrals, and florals. They look great with wide-leg jeans, short skirts and dresses.
Coach grand heel
2. cork wedges
Any style of wedges add height which is flattering and best of all they are super comfortable. You can pair these with shorts and short and flowy dresses and skirts.

3. platform pumps
These heels are sexy and make your legs look a mile long!  They look great with wide leg jeans pencil skirts, and mini skirts.  They are great in a variety of colors but my personal preference is a perfect neutral or nude pair for the spring/summer.

4. pointy-toe slingbacks
Kitten heels, pointy flats and slingback are all back on trend for the spring. They look great with flowy skirts, skinny jeans, and fitted dresses. This style of shoe is definitely my favorite for work. They look professional but since the heel is low you can still walk in them.

5. flat espadrilles
Instead of ballet flats why not try flat espadrilles for a preppy and casual weekend look? They look great with shorts, cropped pants, and boyfriend jeans.

I need a pair of slingbacks. Just curious... Do wear them primarily for work, or home (not actually "home," just outside of work)?

Torrie-I love slingbacks and kitten heels for work mostly. I can walk in the them and they are comfortable and I tend to wear them with dresses and skirts. But if I wear them out to dinner or on the weekends I usually wear them with skinny jeans for a more laid back look. High heels are great and all but so not practical for normal day to

I am so on the prowl for some little kitten heel slingbacks in a neutral shade. Dressy, walkable, and chic. I need to find these before France. If you see any let me know!
