The Top 5 Must-Have Shoes

Now is the time to make a dramatic statement with footwear choices, so put your best foot forward wearing my top five must-have trends.

Shoe Trend #1: Statement Shoes
No longer just supporting and complementing an outfit, these type of shoes are making a statement of their own. Shoe designers have had enough of their limelight being sapped by the "It-Bags" and are now fighting back with eye catching creations that exude confidence and command attention.

Shoe Trend #2: Gladiator Sandals
Gladiator sandals are the ultimate shoe trend for this season. Once relatively neutral, these sandals are receiving additional flair with extra straps and sky high heels.

Shoe Trend #3: Colorful Shoes
Stabilizing neutrals combined with pops of brighter colors to create unique, distinctive looks are the basis for a great simple wardrobe. Look for an emphasis this season on citrus colors such as orange, yellow and lime, especially if they are bordering neon. Hot pink and turquoise are also favourites.
Shoe Trend #4: Platform Shoes
There’s something about platforms that makes us crave hot temperatures and a stylish outfit. Team them with a flowy maxi dress for added height, or a shift mini dress for endless legs and a look that will turn heads your way.
Peep toes show off your perfect manicure, they are less confining than regular pumps, easy to wear and very stylish.

Shoe Trend #5: Wedges
Wedges are the ideal choice for adding height without having to sacrifice comfort. Discover sky-high options, gladiator styles and updated versions of last year’s trends.
