Pom Pom embellished raffia sandals | 4.1″/105mm | shop at Matches

We love these light-beige woven raffia Pom Pom Spring 2016 sandals by embellished with playful multicolored baubles plus a slim front strap and long nude leather ankle-wrap laces. Half sizes are available and you can also find the Pom Pom in white woven raffia at Moda Operandi, Neiman Marcus, Forward by Elyse Walker, Shopbop and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Even more obvious than the painted cork trend, denim footwear is impossible to overlook this spring. From shoe maestro Blahnik to pacesetter , the industry brings us a playful spin on the classic jean twill.

From pumps to sandals, platforms to stilettos – each designer created a unique styles inspired by the blue Americana staple. Not only is denim is a reliable fabric perfect for everyday wear but it’s also an interestingly stylish shoe textile.

I particularly love Gianvito Rossi’s take, adding several denim designs to his spring collection which features a dark wash exaggerated with frayed patches. Both Fendi and Christian Louboutin combined a lighter shade with tropical floral printed leather. Jimmy Choo carries the most amount of denim styles this season adding a sleek contrasting black leather trim to several styles.

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!

Styles available online from the collage above: Sergio Rossi Clash woven cap-toe pump, Daniele Michetti grommet sandal

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.

Styles available online from the collage above: Givenchy leather & PVC sandal, Casadei wooden t-strap wedge
