5 Essential Types of Shoes for Spring & Summer Wardrobes

Spring and Summer are coming and that means it’s time to put away the snow boots and bring out the sassier styles. Shoes are being made more comfortable and stylish then ever so even if you’re not a fan of these types of shoes, give them a try. You may just fall in love with shoes that you never thought you would even consider wearing. These shoes should be in every woman’s spring and summer wardrobes for 2008.

Ballet flats are extraordinarily comfortable. They come in every color and pattern possible from polka dots and stripes to metallic silver and bright green. They slip on and stay on without slipping off, well pending that you chose the right size. These shoes are perfect for a casual night out, running errands during the day and are even comfortable enough to wear around the house. Pick the right pair and you will feel like you’re not even wearing shoes at all.

Bright colors may not be your style, but I promise it’s a great addition to your wardrobe. It adds a punch of color to an otherwise average outfit. Not to mention it’s fun to wear these colors. Adding bright colored shoes lets you add color to your outfit, without overdoing it. If yellow or blue shoes isn’t something you want to jump into right away, try starting off with red. Wearing bright colored shoes will grow on you and in no time you’ll be wearing colored shoes you wouldn’t have even thought of before.

Remember the patent leather shoes that you used to wear when you were a kid? Well now you can wear them again. You may not think that these are for you, especially since most people have a love or hate relationship with patent leather. I didn’t think I would be a fan of this style either- until I purchased my dark red patent leather heels. If I could live in them, I would.

If you’re not a big fan of wearing heels, but still want the extra height, try out a pair of wedges. They are seriously comfortable and still add sexiness to an outfit. They can usually be worn longer then heels considering that they have the extra support of the wedge heel. For those that aren’t used to wearing heels and have no idea how to walk with them, these shoes are great practice first in order to work your way up to wearing the heels.

Metallic shoes are just plain sexy. They can easily be worn during the day or at night and it adds a touch of glamour to an outfit. Metallic seems to bring out the sassy side of women when they’re wearing them. Silver and gold are the obvious colors of choice and I say for metallic shoes, any style goes.

Take advantage of the fun styles and colors before the cold weather hits again. At least with this season, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style.
