22 Trendy Spring Shoes To Coax You Back Outside
Nothing marks the arrival of spring quite like packing up your winter boots and outwear to make way for new wave of breezy, colorful dresses and strappy, toe-baring footwear. But, if you're anything like me, a peek into your well-worn collection of spring shoes from seasons' past can leave a lot to be desired. Fortunately, this year's fresh set of footwear is full of neon color bursts, dizzying florals, and nostalgic silhouettes we can't wait to peacock in as the weather warms up.
As for the notable trends that emerged, prepare yourself for plenty of platforms (and flatforms, too), utility sport sandals made cool à la your favorite Birkenstock or Teva style, the return of flip flops, and a rainbow smattering of spring candy colors sure to outshine even the brightest pedicure.
