If you hair is done perfectly and you’are wearing good shoes,

you can get away with anything.

Shoes I saw in Ready-to-Wear Spring collections of 2018 are so diverse and I’m sure you will find a couple of pairs that’ll satisfy your taste.

There are 7 key shoes trends for Spring and Summer of 2018:

  1. Scarpin shoes;
  2. High-heeled sandals;
  3. Straps or lacing shoes;
  4. Patent leather shoes / metallic colored shoes;
  5. Semi-transparent shoes;
  6. Kitten heels;
  7. Sports shoes, e.g. sneakers and slippers.

Scarpin shoes SS 2018

Fortunately, the days passed when our women wore high-heeled shoes from morning till night, on weekdays and on holidays: in the 21st century, beauty no longer requires such sacrifices.

Nevertheless, scarpin shoes are gorgeous, and that’s why lots of designers included them in their collections and offer you wear them to an evening gown in the spring and summer of 2018.

Scarpin shoes easily cope with the task of pulling out the vertical silhouette thus turning common legs into beautiful ones.

High Heeled Sandals for Spring and Summer 2018

An evening pair of sandals may be high-heeled. I say may be, not have to be, because dictate of fashion is no more. It used to be, but is extinct now.

Shoes, Boots and Sandals SS 2018 with Lacing and Straps

Shoes, boots ans sandals with straps wrapped around the ankle have been in vogue for four seasons.

Still, I have to warn you that straps and shoe laces visually shorten the legs and, as a consequence, do not suit to everyone.

Sports Style Shoes SS 2018

Let’s admit: doing sports is not only good for one’s health, but a big trend as well (and it’s very good that caring about health is in vogue). Anyway, that’s why lots of fashion houses are busy with concluding contracts with sportswear manufacturers.

So there is no surprise that during the Fashion Weeks in New York, Paris, Milan and London brought about so many clothes and shoes in sports style.

It’s strange but true, flip flops may add to the look an aristocratic spirit, and the combination of noble gray, beige and white colors is the key.
