In: "Mules are the perfect shoe for this season. I’m excited that we are bringing them back with a modern twist."
Out: "I hate to said it, but footbed sandals!"
In: "Block heels are one of my favorite silhouettes for the season—they've been building momentum for a little while now and have really taken off for spring. They're such a great easy option for all day elegance and are very versatile across styles. Our signature block heeled Float Boots and Poser Mules are already proving to be standout choices for the season."
Out: "Metallics appear to be on their way out, as are studs and heavy embellishments, with a movement toward a cleaner and more refined aesthetic."
In: "For spring, I am really loving anything with a thick lug sole, something that is somewhat sporty yet chic at the same time. They can tone down a serious outfit or be worn with something more casual, and it always seems to work.”
Out: "I’m not sure if I’d call this an actual trend, but I am—and always have been—over flip flops." — Kate Gordon
In: "Embrace bold, colorful prints and flirtatious lace-ups that are sure to make a statement this season."
Out: "Put away those wedge sneakers."
In: "Flatforms are a big trend for spring. They give us short ladies a little added height while keeping the comfort and ease of flats. We added different versions of the flatform to our spring collection and customers are loving the classic double-band slide as well as our loafer-type sandal with cute tassels that top it off. Our Trinidad and Martinique collections work great from day to night and are extremely comfortable because of the padded footbed."
Out: "The espadrille trend has become a staple every spring season. Women are looking for more fashionable silhouettes and are less interested in the basic espadrille. They expect more from designers and want an exciting reason to buy the new updates come spring."
