10 TOP SPRING ESSENTIALS FOR WOMEN – THE SHOES

10 TOP SPRING ESSENTIALS SHOES FOR WOMEN

Great shoes polish the outfit. Ralph Lauren’s Style Guide, and several other fashion experts, recommend the platform wedge, strappy dress sandal, bright leather bag, and spring scarf as Spring essentials. But, let’s talk shoes—for now.

THE PLATFORM WEDGE SPRING ESSENTIAL – MORE VERSATILITY

 Many style experts proclaim the platform wedge as a spring style essential. Designers have created a gaggle of wedges to choose from. Casual canvas to luxurious leather. With just as many price points; but paying $800 for these great shoes is not Frugalista stylish. The wedge elongates the leg in much  more comfy style than the stiletto. They look good with any of the Spring essential dresses detailed in earlier post

ASOS Hawk Wedge

The ASOS HAWK Color Block Wedges wow in suede and contrasting colors. Peep toe and side toe guards! Picture these with one of the Spring essential tank or shirt dresses. $118 NOW $47

ASOS Helly T-Bar

The t-bar strap of the  ASOS Helly Wedge Sandal could ramp up the style the Spring essential tank dress, too. $100 NOW $40

You’ll find great handbag gifts at ASOS as well.  Check out the next post on that Spring essential.



The Bucco Women’s Slingback Wedges sandals work with all three Spring essential dresses; and much more. Peep toe and sling backs.  No worries on the cork wedge, they’re easy to clean. To ensure your recipient’s shoes stay fab all spring, consider including a copy of How to Clean Cork Heels, http://www.overstock.com/guides/how-to-clean-cork-heels> provided by Overstock.  $40 overstock.com

Espadrille Wedge

The Espadrille Wedge is an iconic Spring essential. This Miss Me Women’s Jaden-2 Wedge might not be as stylish as the one featured in the Ralph Lauren Style Guide, but it’s less than 10% of the cost. The Jaden jute-covered wedge is comparable and Frugalista stylish. $35 endless.com

 

Madden Girl Slingback Wedge

Endless.com has hundreds of wedges. You’ll easily find a fit for your recipient. If she prefers closed-toe shoes, no worries. Endless has several, like the Madden Girl Women’s Kahara Slingback Sandal or Steve Madden Marryy Closed Toe Espadrille. One a slingback in richly woven leather look.  The other in a breathable canvas in bright, spring colors. You’ll find just the right wedge and/or espadrille on this site: from Adrienne Vittadini to Bandolino Chinese Laundry Cole Haan Dolce & Gabbana Michael Kors Naughty Vera Wang; and many more. Endless is also flush with great spring essential handbag candidates.


  THE STRAPPY SANDAL SPRING ESSENTIAL – DAY TO NIGHT

This elegant Spring style essential elevates anything she wears.  Whether it’s one of the recommended Spring essential dresses or motorcycle jacket; or paired with white or colored skinny jeans.

Endless.com has shelves of strappy, dress sandals as well. Like the Unlisted Women’s Closing Act. These will dress up casual outfits and brilliantly complement the rest. Beautiful, similar strappy sandals are also shown on these sandals’ web page, from $33 to $60. Or, simply do a search.
