They say March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, but that still doesn’t help me decide what to wear on my feet. I don’t know about you, but come mid-March to April, I get a bit confused when it comes to my shoe choice.
It’s not cold or snowy enough for the fur-lined, driveway shoveling boots, but it’s certainly not warm and dry enough for flip flops or cruise-worthy sandals…and honestly whose toes are up for that challenge? Can you say at-home-pandemic-pedicure?
As you start to get out and about this Spring, it’s time to lose those clunky Winter boots and think about sprucing up your foot wardrobe.
What’s appropriate footwear when temps can fluctuate from 40 to 70 degrees in one week?
Here are my top three favorite shoe options for transitioning from Winter to Spring in style.
1. Booties or ankle boots: Sturdy and warm enough for coldish rainy days, booties come in a variety of colors, styles and patterns. Leather, faux leather or fabric, booties are the ultimate transition shoe and look stylish with almost any outfit. Ankle boots look cute with tights and a skirt, capris, leggings or cuffed jeans.
2. Fashion sneakers: These are my favorite because, well, they’re sneakers. Popular brands like Converse, Adidas and Skechers make comfy slip-on or laced designs that don’t look like gym shoes. Kicks or slip-ons not only feel good on your feet but also look trendy. You can choose from sporty styles, pastels, metallics and even animal prints. They can be worn with socks when it’s chilly, or without when you’re in a rush out the door. If you cross paths with a mud puddle, most fashion sneakers can be tossed in the washing machine and will come out looking like brand new.
3. Mules: This stylish shoe is the perfect option if you have a more elegant event to attend or are just going out for a nice dinner (finally). Casual or dressy, slip-on Mules are easy to wear, chic and come in all sorts of fun choices and bright colors. Super versatile, you can wear mules to accent a cocktail dress, suit, or dress pants. They offer plenty of toe coverage and usually have a low heel for comfort and mobility should you get caught in an April shower.
Now’s the season to spring into some of these in-between shoe styles. Before you know it, it’ll be time to break out those strappy summer sandals and show off that fabulous pedicure!
