Preparing your Spring Style
The wind is howling and while there is a slight crisp in the air, spring is right around the corner, and will be here before we know it. As much as we kept our feet warm and bright throughout the winter with our winter collection, we are more than ready for less snow and more sunshine. Bye, winter!
We are accustomed to switching out wool, fuzzy sweaters for light jackets and layers when the winter season comes to an end, but all too often shoes are overlooked! This past winter was accompanied by odd weather patterns, most of which were dull and gray, so we are ready and excited to satiate our appetite for all things spring!!
Color on a Rainy Spring Day
Did you know that color is an instant mood lifter? For those rainy or windy days, a colorful but comfortable, military boot like the Seraphina will vibrantly accompany any outfit. You could also mix it up a bit with different boot styles, colors, and maybe even add in a floral pattern like the Billie, Iliana, or keep it classic with the Adoras!
For a more powerful stance, consider our biker boot-inspired block heel Radha. The block heel is a timeless classic since the mid-1960s, hard edges paired with playfulness. These reflected a cultural movement, as the 1970s were a time women were revving up for the women’s movement - silhouettes they could move in and our Kkira block heels fit this bill perfectly, adding in comfort to the traditional shoe. Fun and functional? Yes, please!
Mixing Up Style and Comfort
When we think of spring, the first style of shoe that usually comes to mind is the wedge, like the Christina pictured below. This wedged heel mixes a little pattern with bright colors for a fun and playful look, which is a perfect compliment to leggings or tights with a springy skirt or outfit. It features a round patterned toe, polka dot wedge heel, and an ankle strap that cannot be missed.
Of course, you can’t go wrong with a flat or sneaker, either!
Flats, like our O’joy shoes, pair so well with some tights or shorts, or if you aren’t feeling like wearing heels for date night out!
A Splash of Color… with a Cause
If you’re looking for something else that’s easy to slip-on, our Taylor or Viviana (Vibrant/Alive) pairs compliment any spring outfit. Dress up or dress down with either of these and you are vibrantly good to go!
The best part is that our Viviana (Vibrant/Alive), which is part of our Fashion with a Cause Collection, are both bold and stylish, are designed for and inspired by the colors of the Haitian flag with blue and red representing the ethnicities that live in Haiti, as well as a symbol of independence and freedom. The plaid print speaks to the rebellious spirit of a people that will not stop fighting for their lives.
The high top style, like our Kkira sneakers pictured below, are perfect for any gender and personality. Color your way into spring time with one of our original kicks.
When the snow starts to melt and new colors emerge all around us, weddings and events become more frequent, gentlemen can instantly grab a pair of the Easy shoes. Easy peasy!
And for the ladies, a beautiful, bold platform heel like our Shakti will pair nicely with any color dress you might wear.
With springtime comes changing up the outfits for various occasions and a need to get outside, as well as add pops of color to your wardrobe. To find the perfect pair for your every style, mood and occasion, check out our shop and let us help you get prepared for spring!
