This season, shoes have become the one detail that will make or break your outfit. Walk into Macy’s and you’ll see tons of colors. Coloring blocking is very big for spring.
” We’re seeing a lot of wedges and espadrilles coming in right now,” said Mercedes Pardo, a 20-year-old employee of Macy’s.
The strap is in demand more then ever. The look has taken over for spring, as every designer has at least one strappy design. Strappy heels, wedges or sandals give an outfit an edge.
Wedges are becoming the shoes of summer. They can easily be dressed up or dressed down. The same applies to espadrilles.
“They make a cute look for summer because of the rope detail on the sole of the shoe,” said Jonna Wilson, also an employee of Macy’s. “They’ll go great with sundresses and make a cute outfit out of shorts and a T-shirt.”
Sandals and flip-flops are always in season when you live in Florida. But designers are really taking them to the next level. Now they are coming in all different fun colors. The designs are different. Bright colors are splashed all over sandals, and patterns are making a comeback as well. Jewels and stones are some of the details being used to dress up the every day sandal.
“I’m really into sandals, he ones that come with an ankle strap and a buckle,” said Dana Bowers, an avid shopper for more then 30 years. “They can be simple or they can have jewels all over. That way I can choose between casual and dressed up. Especially now that they are coming in so many different colors and styles.”
Neon colors are making their way through Macy’s, Nordstrom and similar stores. Women are loving the eye-popping detail. One shopper had said that she thought the brighter heels brought life to her outfit.
“They’re just fun!” said an onlooker while shopping.
