Because thinking about summer makes us happy :)
Pumps and stilettos. Despite all hot discussions about how harmful stilettos and pumps are there will always be women ready to sacrifice their health for beauty and elegance. Therefore, such shoes will always be trendy. For Spring/ Summer 2011 high-heeled shoes come in a great variety of colors, from crazy and eye popping hues to reserved and even dull tones.
Flats. Flats are generally perceived as unsexy and focused basically on the comfort of the woman wearing those. However, judging by Spring/ Summer 2011 designer collections flats have become more glamorous and attractive and this makes those more versatile. You can now pair them either with a cute dress or a stylish pair of jeans.
The styles of flats in Spring/ Summer 2011 are very diverse: ballerina flats, oxford flats, sneaker sandals, Jesus sandals, etc. Such a wide spectrum allows each girl to find a pair that fits her personal style best.
Printed shoes. Prints make shoes look livelier and more cheerful. You can use these to complement your look or there is a possibility of building looks around such shoes. The trendiest shoe prints for Spring/ Summer 2011 fashion season are the florals, geometric patterns and animal designs.
Gladiator and strappy sandals. Gladiators continue to be a very trendy shoe design. These come in high heel, wedge and flat versions. For fans of more delicate styles strappy sandal trend is also available.
Clog-inspired shoes. First created by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel Spring/ Summer 2010 collection clogs have been gaining their popularity since then. They are still trendy now but with a modernized look and more luxurious in design.
Platform wedges. Wedges are hotter than ever during Spring/ Summer 2011 fashion season. Common designs are added with platform ones which look even more stylish. There are modest wedges which are fantastic for everyday wear, espadrille styles, and very exquisite designs you would want to wear to big life events. Look for wedges in Sonia Rykiel, Christian Dior, Vivienne Westwood and Jonathan Saunders collections.
Flatform Heels. This can be the first time you have ever heard of flatform shoes because this is a new term and it refers to flats that are elevated on a high platform heel, held on by an ankle strap. I would even say that they remind me of summer espadrilles but these are a bit higher. Flatforms do not look very elegant or sophisticated but they do provide great comfort to wearer. Despite the fact the shoes are rather high you can walk easily in these without feeling pain. Chanel, Prada, 3.1 Philip Lim, Michael Kors, Derek Lam, Vivienne Westwood, and Chloé have all featured flatform shoes in their Spring/ Summer 2011 ranges. By the way, Im not loving them but flatforms are considered the shoes for 2011!!!
