If you’re anything like us, you will have already noted your summer wardrobe updates mentally, and are patiently waiting for Mother Nature to get a move on. We’re definitely shoe people at The Newsette, and one of our favorite trends has carried over from last season; hurrah! The craze behind the backless loafer may have been generated by Gucci, but the mule trend has seen the light of day many times before. From the 16th-19th Century, mules were worn as indoor boudoir slippers. Fast forward to Sex and the City season 2 & 3, and we see them emerge again at the turn of the millennium. The slipper-esque shoe style is here to stay and we couldn’t be happier. Whether you opt for a flat loafer or a slip-on heel, we have rounded up our top 10 picks to ensure you step into spring in style. And while we love a good pair of Gucci loafers, you’ll find no Gs on these slides.
1). A classic shape with a beach-inspired heel will do nicely while we wait for summer.
2). Pointed-toe options are great with smart pants for office-chic or cropped jeans for weekend-cool.
3.) A neutral suede with a wooden heel is a great style to pair with denim, skirts, and dresses.
4). Pastel shades will add a romantic touch to any summer ensemble.
5). Leather flats are a wonderful way to sport the trend; versatile and chic!
6). Backless loafers are a fun take on a classic shoe, not to mention comfortable!
7). Daring to make a statement this season? Animals prints are a good way to go, especially as it’s two trends wrapped into one.
8). A rich, dark tan is the new neutral, and it will go nicely with white, denim, black and red.
9). Pink shoes are the perfect way to brighten up any outfit. Great for spring and your favorite sundress.
10). A denim or fabric option will instantly elevate any style!
