Spring 2013 Shoe Trends: Part II

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:

Spring-2013-shoes-oversized-bucklesWe’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.

Spring-2013-shoes-fringe-jimmy-choo-giuseppe-zanotti 1
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-shoes-Spring-2013
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!

Spring-2013-t-strap-shoes-Louboutin-Casadei

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.

Styles available online from the collage above: Christian Louboutin V Neck pump in red, Casadei pump with blade heel in black & red

Spring-2013-shoes-wooden-inserts

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.
