As fashion fans and as women, you know that even the simplest outfit can be elevated from ordinary to extraordinary with the addition of an amazing pair of shoes. Luckily, you don’t have to go it alone when it comes to finding your new favorite footwear. On the contrary, today’s Chic Shoe Buys story is packed to the brim with amazing footwear finds that will help you step into the new season in style—whether you are looking for a festival-ready sandal or a pair of colorful pumps that will change up your 9-5 look. On that note, click through to discover all the fab shoes we are craving this month!
The first thing on our minds when warmer weather arrives is how soon we can change out of our winter boots and into a pair of sandals—and judging by the picks we have found today, this will be on your mind too. For instance, how amazing are Mango’s Shiny Strap Sandals ($70)? The simple silhouette allows them to work with anything from a pair of skinny jeans to a sun dress and the shimmering straps instantly add a glam twist to your outfit. We also like Matiko’s Neon Tribal Sandals ($154). When we first spotted them, we instantly added them to our music festival shopping list. After all, what better place to bring tribal prints, neon colors, and studded leather together in one? Of course, we are also on the lookout for sandals that effortlessly transition from a day out shopping to a night on the town and both Rebecca Minkoff’s Bettina Sandals ($125) and ONE by Daniblack’s Nairobi Wedge Sandals ($170) meet the criteria. We love the bright pop of color that the Bettina sandals would add to any outfit—to make them really stand out, we recommend pairing them with a simple white shift dress. As for the Nairobi sandals, they have a small wedge heel that will add a little height to your legs, plus they too will add a heavy dose of color to your outfit.
Of course, we know you ladies love a high heel—and we have plenty of those, too. In fact, it was love at first sight when we first spotted Zara’s I-Basic Sandals ($50). Who can say no to a super-high stiletto heel, a bright pop of color, and a delicate ankle strap? Not us. We are equally enamored with Jean-Michel Cazabat’s Petra Wedges ($270). The rich colors and gold trim give these wedges a glamorous feel, making them perfect for a night out on the town in a little black dress or a fashion industry event. Speaking of events, we always love a shoe that can transition from the office to an after-work event, so we were thrilled when we discovered Schutz’s Delta Pumps ($148). Thanks to the simple and flattering silhouette, these pumps are perfect if you want to add a touch of color to your favorite business-casual look. Even better, that same pop of color makes them just as perfect for after-hours. And that leads us to our final footwear find: Burberry’s Printed Ballet Flats ($375). These flats are great for the girl who is on her feet all day—interns, stylists, take note!—but they will also last beyond the 9-5 hours and into the night and are ready to brighten up any outfit you choose.
