Aspire To Inspire

A LOOK AHEAD: SPRING 2013 SHOE TRENDS

While at market in NYC, I spent some time looking through all of the different booths to find new ideas and trends for the season as well as new and interesting designers.  I found many exciting things on this trip that I can’t wait to share with you.

The overall apparel trends at market haven’t changed much for the next spring season.  Prints are still in full force and embellishments and ethnic inspirations are still a big part of the spring aesthetic.  I didn’t see any major new ideas out there at this level of the market, the bigger new ideas are seen on the runway, but those don’t necessarily always translate at the contemporary market.  I did however notice a few new ideas in regard to shoes that got me excited.

METALLIC ACCENTS

Probably the biggest trend I saw in shoes was the use of metallic accents against neutral tones.  Rose gold and silver were used the most and styles are simple and sleek.  Take a look at some of my favorite styles below.

UPDATED OXFORD LACE-UPS

I’ve been a fan of oxford lace ups since back in my Catholic school days.  I still have several pairs as I think they are perfect for the workdays to keep you stylish but still comfortable.  I love the updates I saw including interpretations of color blocking with the cap toe and the use of pastels and multi colored pastels.

ETHNIC MATERIALS/PRINTS

With prints being such a big trend these days, of course we are going to start to see printed shoes.  I didn’t take too many pictures of printed shoes as I think that is a trend that the fast fashion chains will buy really big into and I don’t want to promote that type of buying.  However, a smaller and more directional perspective on prints is in ethnic materials.  We definitely saw use of this for this past spring, and will continue to for Spring 2013.  You know I’m a big fan of this idea!

FLATFORMS

Platforms have transformed into Flatforms for the more fashion forward.  I’m in love with this idea and especially love them paired with oversized items and simple silhouettes of the season. I’m also completely loving ALL WHITE shoes for the more fashion forward.

COLOR TRENDS

Color-blocking is a trend I saw a lot of but my favorite has to be this heel by United Nude.

Simple color-blocking from Loeffler Randall

Pastels are a big trend popped with neutrals and neons.  My favorite palettes were from a Spanish manufacturer that produces Madison Harding and Plomo which are both handmade in Spain.  They had a great range of silhouettes and their palette for the season summed up the color trends very well.
