So you've laid eyes on a handful of trends you're ready to finally try out. You've added a few of them to your wardrobe rotation, and now that spring temperatures are warming up, it's time to get going. The only thing that's holding you back? If you're like many of us, it's less about wearing the actual trend and more about deciding what shoes to pair with it. Whether it's a psychedelic tie-dye tee or a prairie dress or even something on the tamer side like a pair of baggy jeans—whatever the item in question might be, it's fair to argue that the footwear you team with a trend is equally as important as the trend itself.
With this in mind, we cobbled together an edit of some of 2019's biggest trends so far and conveniently matched a pair of fun shoes to go with each. Ahead, discover 12 easy-to-wear trends and even easier shoes to accessorize them with, starting now.
The Trend: Baggy Jeans
The Shoes: PVC
Skip the sneakers and give your '90s-inspired baggy jeans a touch of glamour with season's PVC trend.
The Trend: Cargo Pants
The Shoes: White Heels
Whether you're going for a roomy pair of cargo pants or a tailored version, white shoes will add a fresh pop at the bottom of your outfit that can easily tie in with whatever you're wearing up top.
The Trend: Bike Shorts
The Shoes: Mary Janes
If you're test-driving the bike short trend this spring, you may be wondering what on Earth to accessorize them with. As seen above, a pair of low-heel Mary Janes is chic and not over the top.
The Trend: Crayola Brights
The Shoes: Beige
There's no better time to swap out your dark separates for a fresh assortment of Crayola brights (especially green). Team them with beige shoes to let the colors do the talking.

The dad shirt is returning this spring, swathed in fun Hawaiian prints. What to wear below? We suggest a cool cargo skirt and lace-up sandals for a tropical-meets-city look.
The Trend: Pants Tucked Into Boots
The Shoes: Cowboy Boots
During the most recent fashion month, it seems every editor and influencer alike was tucking their pants into boots. Keep the trend alive with a pair of cool cowboy boots.
A satin or silk skirt already has a boudoir feel to it. Add to the aesthetic with a pair of Victorian-inspired lace-up boots.
The Trend: Spring Plaids

Double down on the grunge appeal of spring's tie-dye trend, and finish off the look with utilitarian footwear. If it's too warm for boots, consider low-top Dr. Martens.
