Step Into Spring: Arielle’s Favorite Spring Footwear Trends

Thanks to our friends at NET-A-PORTER for partnering with us on this post.
There are only three days left of February, which means we can start wearing spring shoes, right? Blame it on Fashion Month, but no matter what our weather-app-of-choice says, this is always the time of year when we start plotting how to update our wardrobe favorites with the most right-now-feeling footwear. But where do we begin? Thankfully Arielle has done the legwork for us (pun intended). She’s sorted through all of NET-A-PORTER’s most fabulous footwear to find the most 2020-iest of spring trends that we’re all going to wear ASAP, regardless of the temperature. And since one might say that she’s made browsing NAP’s “What’s New” section a daily ritual, it didn’t take her long. She’s covered all of the bases: from flats to sandals to elegant pumps, and fun colorful picks that have us daydreaming of 65° and sunny—or at least Miami. And not that there was any doubt, but it’s generally a pretty good idea to trust the girl who’s got a shoe wall in her famous “cloffice” to pick what you put on your feet. Happy shoe-shopping!

Arielle’s Daytime Picks

When picking a daytime shoe, comfort and style are mutually important. You can still make a style statement, even if you’re on your feet all day. Some of our go-to’s are a reinvented flat, not-crazy-high high heels or block heels, and a new take on the gladiator sandal.

"It's no secret that The Row is my favorite brand, but it's their accessories specifically that fill up so much of my closet. They are always on point when it comes to their shoes and bags, so when I saw this new stretchy mesh style with the clear heel, I immediately needed to add it to my wardrobe."


Arielle’s Sneaker Picks

Whether they’re paired with dresses or even suits for the office, sneakers are the new flats. Stick to the classics from brands like Vans and Adidas, or make a statement with metallic styles from Golden Goose and a throwback velcro style from Givenchy.

"I've recently become obsessed with sneakers, maybe because as a mom I need to be comfortable, but I am also kind of loving that relaxed boyish look recently. I wear them with jeans and a hoodie with a blazer thrown over, or with a monochromatic ensemble tied back to the sneaker color. It's an easy go-to for me, and when I came across these Vans in a sea of designer shoes on Net-A-Porter, it was a quick no brainer "Add to Cart."


Arielle’s Nighttime Picks

So what do you do at 6PM and you suddenly have post-work plans? A festive shoe can take your look from desk to dinner at the snap of a finger. Right now, we’re particularly lusting after thong-sandals (yes, really), crystal details, and a stand-out ankle-strap—worn over pant legs for next-level nowness.

"I think this shoe needs no explanation. How stunning is it? I saw it and immediately added it to my cart. I wanted it to so badly that I even ordered a half a size up because it was all that was left! I love them so much—they're so feminine and sexy, and I can't wait to wear them with a slinky slip dress, but also with a pair of jeans and a button down."
