Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!

Girlies, when it comes to stylish  footwear for summer, you’ve got a lot of choices. And as the great and glam Carrie Bradshaw once said, “We’re talking about a woman’s right to shoes.”

There’s no excuse to be stuck wearing yesterday’s clunky disasters. It’s time to clean out the closet and go shopping. And if you think you’re boxed in with only selections of boring flats and wedges, think again chickas.

Footwear for summer 2012 is sizzling hawt. Look for shoe/sandal trends that pop in bright colors, like vivid yellows and oranges, hawt pink, electric buh-lue, etc. Nine West is offering up the ‘Krysten’ in their own ah-dorable yummy shades of Turquoise or Flamingo on a criss-cross platform with buckle closure, as featured in OK! magazine.

Or slip into a pair of sky high platforms if you dare. Jessica Simpson has NEVER met a platform sole she didn’t like, and this season she’s designed a bunch of them, including the ‘Barbara,’ a sexy platform cage sandal that features a strappy stiletto design.

The ‘Cordelia’ Espadrille Wedge by Bandolino is ah-dorably suede with a layered flower detail at the toe, braided espadrille heel, and a slingback strap. A smart choice that spells comfort and style, 24/7.

Maybe shining shoes are more your style. Gold or silver are classics that are on trend for summer 2012. It’s metallic mania, if you will. ‘Ariel’ from BCBGeneration is the perfect pump for a glamorous night out on the town. It’s a peep toe pump in a shiny gold, metallic leather upper.

Pastel-colored footwear is also very appealing for the summer. Try on any style in aqua, light yellow, or pale green. Nude is extra hot at the moment, too. Just look at the Royals’ Kate Middleton in nude shoes again and again. Coach has a sophisticated pair in wheat, called the ‘Sue Heel.’ It features a rounded toe in nude leather with a straight, stacked heel.

Coach also offers up the ‘Gwynn Wedge,’ with a nautical blue striped canvas and leather strap on a 4 1/2″ wedge heel. Stripes are the hottest accessory going at the moment, and these classic sandals have a modern edge that looks soo hawt this summer.

                          If you’ve been wishing for the braided sandal to return, then summer 2012 is your time. Braiding on footwear is quite elegant, especially when the details are so intricate. You could never go wrong selecting the ‘Tahira Black Braid’ by Naturalizer. This is a lovely casual sandal thong in a 1 1/4″ heel. The braiding in black, twists and loops, and fastens with a heel sling strap and buckle.
Summer footwear doesn’t have to be dull or look typical. Look around, and you will see runway trends that maybe you thought you could never wear, like sexy transparent shoes, laced up sandals, metallic toes, sandals loaded with buckles, rivets, and the return of always chic, pointed toe shoes. Remember: Fashion doesn’t end at the hem of your dress or pants. Your covered feet complete the look. And when your summer footwear is right on trend, so are you.
