summer shoe trends 2021 what’s hot?

what’s trending for summer 2021? today, it’s all about summer shoe trends 2021. shoes are the one accessory that can make or break an outfit. so pay attention when it’s time to make your final selection. if you are in the beginning stages of a wardrobe edit, please make certain you have a black and nude pump on hand. these two shoes simply go with everything and are a worthy investment. after that, the sky is the limit on what shoes to add to your collection. personally, i have a variety of heel heights. from flats to kitten heels to stilettos. each of these styles has a time and place depending on what i’m wearing and where i’m going. ballet flats tend to be workhorses in my closet as this silhouette goes with skirts, dresses, shorts, and denim. but add a pointy-toed pump to a pair of humble blue jeans, and you’ve created instant chic! don’t be afraid to experiment with different heel heights to see which ones suit your look best. and if you happen to panic when it comes to adding color to your day-to-day look, shoes are a safe way to infuse a little oomph.

it’s full steam ahead with summer; let’s talk about summer shoe trends for 2021. i’ve scoured my favorite brands to find this season’s latest looks.

mules are definitely must-have shoes in my world. they are a nice change of pace from sandals once warm weather rolls into town. and they go nicely with cropped and wide-leg pants that are also on trend this year.

statement sandals

of course, sandals have to make the  shoe trends for the summer 2021 list. what’s summer without a pair of sandals? but if you want to be on-trend, pick an embellishment for your sandals. pearls, rhinestones, chains are all good choices for statement sandals.

    Love your posts and look forward to reading each one. One thing I find frustrating is that shoe manufacturers don’t realize there’s an entire group of women who don’t wear a medium width. If you go to the Nordstrom website and search under women’s shoes, you’ll get 15,755 hits. Put in narrow and it reduces to 658, but not a single A width. Wider widths are offered a greater selection. I’ve tried insoles which shift and slide and even asked my local shoemaker for help. Would love to buy more stylish shoes as most narrow footwear are sandals or athletic shoes that tie, not the look I’m going for when wearing dresses or out for the evening. Enjoy the day.

    The right shoe can make an ordinary outfit seem special. I always wore neutral shoes until a few years ago. I missed so much fun. You have some great choices here. Love the square toes.
