Spring Shoe Report: Lusts vs. Musts!

Style & BeautyPost Category - Style & BeautyStyle & Beauty

spring shoes DCG
In my pre-mama days, I could (and quite often would) spend most of my waking hours in skyscraper-tall shoes. I loved the way they made me feel: sexy and sassy – plus they made me stand straighter and look taller. All positives! Then I spent a good portion of my 30s pregnant. And let me tell you, I very quickly learnt that running after little munchkins in heels, though do-able, was not very practical – especially whilst pregnant. And so, I had little choice but to introduce flats into my wardrobe. Of course moving to London, the land of the cobbled pavements, also meant I often traded-in the glamour of heels for the functionality of flats. And THAT, ladies and gentlemen is the real reason why my shoe collection mysteriously multiplied!But truth be told, I am besotted by footwear, which is why I am super-excited about this season’s offerings! We have:

1. COLOUR
For the past few years, it has been all about neutrals to create an illusion of ‘bambi’ legs. Along with the very fashion-forward Duchess of Cambridge I happily followed the pack, snapping up a few pairs of varying shades of neutral in differing styles. But this season, you will find colors ranging from your pastels through to eye-popping colors that look like they were stolen straight from the rainbow!

GET IT!: Colours that pop or pastels: Jimmy Choo or Charles & Keith
DREAMING OF: Faythe Patent Sandals by Ralph Lauren

2. ANKLE STRAPS
Be still my pounding heart! I love ankle straps. It doesn’t really matter the width of the strap and though not the type you can simply slip on or off, I can really see myself rocking a few of these – especially if they are accompanied by an oversized buckle!

GET IT!: Am LOVING the ones offered by Steve Madden
DREAMING OF: Gucci Victoire Sandals
crave 2

3. CLEAR
Shoes with see-through elements are not a new trend in Asia but it seems the rest of the world is finally catching up. Designers everywhere are now joining the party this season with their collections featuring see-through Perspex heels and clear PVC panels.
GET IT!: From Stella McCartney to New Look and Topshop
DREAMING OF: Lanvin’s Suede Ruffle Trompe L’oeil Wedge heels in black
crave 3

4. LASER CUT
Again, not a new trend, but somehow, if feels as if more designers have embraced laser cutting this year; with prettier and more creative patterns, using materials ranging from leather and PVC to lace, silk and suede.
GET IT!: Again, you can go as high end as or as penny conscious as you like:
Chloe, Sergio Rossi, DKNY, Victoria’s Secret, Topshop, New Look.
DREAMING OF: Christian Louboutin Leather Pampas 150 Laser Cut Peeptoe Booties
crave 4.2

5. BLOCK HEELS
I can almost hear mamas all over the world giving a collective “HOORAY!” as this style is probably the most practical for keeping up with little ones while still wearing any sort of heels. The even better news: these heels come in varying heights and are definitely made for walking (or running!)!

GET IT!: LK Bennett, Kurt Geiger, Calvin Klein, Ted Baker, Dorothy Perkins
DREAMING OF: A pair of Nude Patent Leather Pumps by Nicholas Kirkwood
crave 5.2

These are all very wearable trends that won’t disappear overnight and if any (or all) are do-able in your ‘mama world’, are definitely worth investing in. You KNOW how a pair of awesome shoes can transform the simplest look and turn up your chic factor a notch or two! Of course you will find all of the above trends in the Singapore shops I mentioned in my previous piece “Shoe Nirvana in Singapore? Shoe bargains galore!” That way, you can add more than one pair to your collection. Enjoy!

They call this generation 'Alpha'! The first group who will be immersed in technology their entire lives. Many Alphas will have a digital footprint before they even understand the term. Scary thought? Toddlers today 🤔
