Warm weather is finally coming our way, and with it, our warm weather clothes! Dresses, tanks, and most importantly, sandals and peep toe shoes are appearing slowly, but surely. As we have started to see, this spring’s trends encompass bright colors and crazy patterns, so it should come as no surprise that shoes have followed suit. The chunky, funky heels are definitely an interesting add to the mixture of chaos going on for spring ’12 styles. With wild colors, brilliant combos of fabrics and textures, and of course, the chunky heel or wedge, these funky shoes will be taking on the style scene by storm.
They are the perfect wardrobe add-on to amp up a simple look and blend in perfectly with the bright and bold styles that warm weather brings with it. And the best part about this trend? The comfort! As many of us have experienced on the rocky sidewalks and cobblestone roads of NYC, chunky heels are much easier to walk in than stilettos, making the beauty=pain theory a thing of the past this season.
Whether you are a high roller, or are on a tight budget, this look is definitely attainable from high-end retailers like Saks and Neimans, to those that are more affordable like H&M,Topshop, and Urban Outfitters.We have chosen a few of our favorites for the season by designers like Missoni, Acne, Giuseppe Zanotti, and Rodarte.
Get on the trend and add these crazy collectables to your spring/summer 2012 wardrobe!
