This time last year, I remember thinking about how buying new shoes was a total waste of money. There was nowhere to go and no one to see during the midst of the pandemic. Any time I left the house I would just slip on a pair of cheap fuzzy slides I bought years ago, and that was all the effort I was going to put into my footwear. Fast forward one year later and the times are feeling very different. Businesses are opening up, and people are enjoying their mimosas and brunch dates and that means wearing shoes are actually back in style!

This year we’re seeing brighter colors, pastel hues, platforms, and bolder silhouettes. So here are the 3 shoes every fashion girl is wearing with their spring dresses this year!
Yes, “anything square-toed” is not actually a shoe, but this trendy silhouette is everywhere and all our favorite footwear classics are getting a chic square-toed update. My personal favorite? A puff square-toed sandal. The popular thong sandal (which made it into our list of spring wardrobe essentials) meets elegance and a touch of formal with a square-toe silhouette as well.
Two platform styles that are super hot right now: espadrilles and combat boots. Flatform sandals/espadrilles tap into trendy resort wear styling while still being appropriate and super chic for everyday wear. They are a step up from your slip-on’s while offering the same comfort thanks to its uniform height. Combat boots might not be the most obvious pick for the spring and summer, but this shoe is the perfect transitional footwear style that offers a rugged, edgy contrast to your sweet and soft spring florals.
White Fashion Sneakers
We can’t give up our white sneakers, no matter what time of the year it is! White fashion sneakers are especially popular and fun during the spring and summer because they add an unexpected, sporty element paired with your spring dresses. 2021 is all about conservative styling with an effortless, casual vibe carried over from 2020, and a spring dress + white sneaker combo is our favorite way to embody that. For the spring, opt for a pair of low-top white sneakers with accent colors like the ones we’ve selected below!
