This post is a continuation from Part 1 which I wrote a couple months ago. I love writing these trend posts but they seem to take forever to finish (I started collecting images around last October)!
5 more Spring 2013 shoe trends:
We’ve already seen these oversized buckles hit the red carpet and they’ve been spotted on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kerry Washington, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Hudson.
Heidi Klum also wore a striped sandal with a large buckle by Saint Laurent this week at New York Fashion Week.

Fringed footwear is fun to wear and I like how it splashes around my feet as I walk. I really like the layered design by Choo which features a pink rayon and brown suede fringe. Christian Louboutin also used fringe detailing on a suede boot which Jessica Biel’s been wearing.

Woven leather is the second most popular trend in footwear this season next to mixed media. It’s used differently by each designer, for example, Charlotte Olympia used a white leather to create a playful basket-looking island platform.
And I almost forgot to add an important one, look at these Givenchy white & black woven sandals!

These t-stap pumps are ladylike yet so sexy at the same time. I can’t help but think of Dita Von Teese who often wears this style. Side note, take a look at her shoe collection!
Kate Beckinsale was the first celeb to wear these Casadei pumps with the sculpted blade heel last month.

Rounding out the shoe trends, an obvious style seen in several designer’s collections has been the use of wooden inserts and wooden details. As a prominent example, I love how Cate Blanchett wore this Givenchy sandal to a premiere last December.
