Fashion Week is over, and from ornate embroidery and stitching to ultra chic patent accents, our fashion experts here at Shoebuy.com have identified the Top 10 footwear fashion trends to keep an eye on for the upcoming Spring shopping season all available now on Shoebuy.com. Check them out below and get ahead of the trends: Tip # 1 - Espadrilles They'll be coming in all styles and colors this spring. Great for dressing up or down, espadrilles offer comfort and fashion. In addition to the traditional wrap styles, you'll be seeing modern twists on the classic like the Ghita, a strappy sling basket weave wedge from Franco Sarto. Tip #2 - Embroidery/Ornamentation Be on the lookout for textured accents and sophisticated embellishments this spring. They are perfect ways to update classic styles while making bold statements like the cute and sassy Belle Marie open toe wedge heel from Sun Spot. Tip #3 - Wedge Heels Shake things up in these so-stylish wedge thongs from Original Dr. Scholl's. This closet staple never goes out of style. Expect to see them in all colors, textures and heel heights. The Tremor is a platform sandal, with stitching accents, glittering bezel-set crystal details, and a metal sunburst centerpiece and combines multiple spring trends into a perfect shoe. Tip #4 - Patent Accents We've been mad about patent accents for a while now and thankfully they are NOT going anywhere. The ultra chic Della sandal's platform and combination raffia/patent leather upper from Oh! Shoes definitely fit the bill. Tip #5 - Preppy Sport Don't forget casual comfort. This Spring has it all prepped - out. The Sandbar Thong from Sebago is perfect example. The casual thong sandal is nautical and timeless and features full-grain leather uppers with a web strap. Tip #6 - Bright Colors Be bold or go home this spring with traffic stopping colors from sunshine yellow to bold blues and be sure to bring them through in all your shoes. To mix things up here's the Crocs Cleo which is a casual shoe that does just that. Tip #7 - Sporty Stripes Say YES to stripes (vertical or horizontal) on shoes for this Spring. The America Striped adorable peep toe wedge from Me Too features an adjustable slingback strap along with a front floral detail. It will look perfect with spring skirts or capri's. Tip #8 - Ankle Straps This hot fall trend will carry over into Spring but will be lightened up with bright-colored fabrics and textures like the Franco Sarto Jive II. The modern wedge heeled sandal's adjustable ankle straps and trendy peep toe will make the perfect statement. Tip #9 - Visions of White Look heavenly this Spring when it will be ok to wear white before Memorial Day. The trend is white and every shade of it. The Kitta in a creamy off white tumbled calfskin from Oh! Shoes is a perfect (and comfortable) platform sandal addition to any closet. Tip #10 - Shades of Green Give new life (and loads of fashion points) to your wardrobe by thinking green this Spring, in every shade and texture. The Nicole by Franco Sarto is a slide with a covered button ornamentation and a stacked heel that combines multiple spring trends into a very stylish and sassy shoe.
