2015 Spring / Summer Shoe Trends
The four most popular shoe trends for spring / summer 2015 are 1) wedge style espadrilles, first popularized by French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, 2) Birkenstocks (now numerous options), 3) colorful flat sandals and 4) minimal high heel sandals.
Wedge style espadrilles will give a summer outfit a trendy look and they look great with any length pant, skirts and dresses. If you want to update your look the wedge espadrille will do the trick.
Birkenstocks are “flying out of the shoe department” at Nordstrom’s in SF according to a salesperson there. Known for their comfort but thought of as looking ugly by some they are considered chic and classic by the fashion forwards. Every year thousands of satisfied customers request new styles to incorporate into their wardrobes and Birkenstock has delivered having 11 sandal styles on their USA website. Wear metallic, leather, polished patent styles or the traditional beige suede with tailored pants for a stylish look. Always ready to travel. Right a woman wearing Birkenstocks and looking very chic.
Colorful sandals are a great way to add a POP of color to any outfit. They tend to look fabulous with casual clothes but will certainly work with some more dressy outfits depending on their style.
Love them or hate them minimal high heel sandals are popular with the younger females that are sure footed. After a certain age one feels more comfortable in a lower heel with more support, but if you want to be in style look for a minimal shoe that has a more moderate heel height or a thick heel. There are some out there.
