Spring Has Spoken: These Shoe Styles Are Going to Be Major

Footwear is one wardrobe element that’s always worth investing in: After all, your shoes can easily make or break your outfit, and they affect your comfort level for the entirety of your day. And naturally, when you decide to spring for a pricier piece, you want to get the most wear out of it as possible. (In other words, it’s the opposite of that expensive bridesmaid’s dress that you wore once and promptly hung up in the back of your closet.)

In order to ensure that our spring shoe purchases are sound investments, we enlisted the help of Los Angeles–based blogger Kim Lapides of Eat Sleep Wear and her husband, Blake. Together, the pair identified the three must-have shoe styles of the season that will easily take you from beach to boardroom and from coffee to cocktails. Her top advice for getting the best bang for your buck? “For me, neutral-colored shoes help me mix and match, so they work with any outfit,” she says. “I know I’ll be able to get great use of things that follow the same color story as my accessories.”
