Women’s lust for shoes never ends. We may be halfway through the spring season, but the need for a gorgeous new pair is one that merits careful attention, a meticulous taste and an eye for trends. Women may be left with plenty of footwear options this season, but the colossal task of poring through every designer rack can be a tad too intimidating—not to mention utterly tiring. From the towering heel height of this month’s Christian Louboutin releases to the delightful tropical inspirations oozing from Charlotte Olympia’s selection, Fashion Glamour trimmed down your options to five shoe style that we deem crucial for the spring and summer seasons. The only pairs you’ll ever need—and buy—are these five designer shoes oozing with character.
The great search for spring’s most desirable pair of pumps ends right now, right here. These bold Charlotte Olympia suede pumps are the epitome of what dressing for this season is all about—charming, flirty and effervescent. Decked in heart appliqués in various shades of red, this pair can be worn from casual daytime affairs to chic evening soirees. Although pumps tend to be too stiff for spring, these quirky pair is anything but restrictive and boring.
A true spring and summer staple, a pair of flats is what you need to get you through everyday warm-weather errands. One of the pairs we’re highlighting as the season’s bests is this Voudoo Flat from Christian Louboutin. The strass dotted pink bows on top lend a bewitching twist to these otherwise simple black thong sandals. From a casual shirt-and-denim look to a sweet baby doll dress ensemble, these flats can take on the challenge of adding pizzazz to your style.
In light of the overwhelming color palette designers are churning out this season, a pair of neutral sandals that go with every garment in your closet is a true necessity. See by Chloé’s leather and wood sandal is just that. With its understated elegance and versatility, trust on these shoes to easily complement your every ensemble.
We stopped and stared at these candy-colored Stuartz Weitzman Encore wedges the first time we saw these. Similar to the charisma exuding from the Charlotte Olympia pair, these wedges are an irresistible shoo-in as one of spring—and summer’s—best wedges. Although the shape and ankle-wrap straps details are something we’ve seen time and time again, it’s the the refreshing combination of pink and orange that make this Stuart Weitzman shoes a runaway winner in the Fashion Glamour book.
Keeping up with the need for comfort and style this season, Jimmy Choo churned out these Weber suede flats that put a new spin on your everyday ballerina flats. Although black flats tend to rake up an average mark in terms of style, the label decked their pair in studs and crystals for a truly dazzling pair that is simple and oh-so-versatile.
