Go Ahead and Wear a Plain Outfit—This Shoe Trend Will Make It Special

Go ahead and wear a plain outfit—now there's a statement we don't often make. Lately, it seems all we've been talking about in the Who What Wear office are spring's pastel colors and eclectic prints. But hear us out when we stand behind wearing simple outfits. It all has to do with this one shoe trend.

Printed sandals were basically made for days when you just can't muster the energy to construct a carefully curated outfit. So take the pressure off yourself and reach for shoes that command all the attention. There's something refreshing about the thought that trying less in your outfit can actually do more. Jeans and a tee? Why not. A simple shirt dress? Go ahead. When paired with pretty printed sandals, like gingham slides or floral jacquard platforms, the simpler the outfit combination, the better. Scroll down to meet your spring wardrobe's new hero shoe.

Speaking of shoes, these pairs are perfect transitional shoes for that awkward in-between season.
