First off, apologies for the grainy photo. My camera is starting to act up, and it may be time for a new one. This was the best shot I could get with it. Stay tuned for a camera update later this month! Now, onto spring shoes!
My spring 2021 shoe capsule wardrobe is here! This spring, life is on the casual side. I put my high heels in the closet, as well as my wedge espadrilles, in the hopes of pulling them out this summer when things open up a bit more. Here in California, we are still somewhat locked down. We can enjoy outdoor dining, and outdoor activities, but everything that is open is on the casual side, and requires footwear to match. Shoes I can walk in are a must! So heels and wedges are stored for next season. Waiting for those vaccines!
Spring shoes for the 2021 season are a little bit more fun than they have been in previous years. We are looking at the puffy pillow trend, which started with handbags, and has now moved to shoes; and we are also looking at the square toe. Put these two trends together, and your footwear is fun!
I normally prefer neutral shoes, but for spring 2021, I decided one pair of fun, yellow shoes was a necessity. It’s been such a stressful, and crazy, twelve months, so adding a little bit of fun to our wardrobes this season will brighten the day as we look towards the light at the end of the tunnel.
I love this puffy yellow pair of slides. They are comfy and soft, yet offer a little bit of height with the block heel. I can walk around in them, and kick them off easily in the car. If you are only buying one pair of shoes this spring season, buy something fun!
If you have been reading my blog, you know all about comfort shoes for spring! I love these comfy slides, and espadrilles are also slipper-like on my feet. These are my two go-to comfort shoes this spring season. I also have a pair of Birkenstocks, but I tend to wear them around the house. They are well-loved.
Espadrilles, and any pair of open toe shoes, will easily carry us all into the summer season. These are good investments to wear for spring, and throughout the warm weather seasons. Closed toe slides will also carry us through fall. This makes slides a great investment shoe for 2021! Love that!
Have you noticed? Comfort shoes are a hot trend this spring 2021 season. As we start to emerge from our homes, and begin getting back out into the real world, we all need a little bit of comfort. While we want to dress up and get out of our loungewear, it’s hard to lose the comfort aspect we have enjoyed for months. This, coupled with the current 1990s footwear trends, it’s no wonder comfort shoes are hotter than hot right now.
Comfort shoes offer a lot to love. They are obviously comfortable, and they are easy to slip on and off. In addition, they offer style without sacrificing, you guessed it, comfort! Funny how that works!
Comfort shoes aren’t just hot for spring. Designers showed them on the runways at New York Fashion Week for the fall 2021 season too. This means that comfort shoes are a great investment to wear this season, and throughout the entire year. Love that!
So what style of comfort shoe should you invest in? Birkenstocks are the hottest of the hot right now. In fact, the long-time hero of the comfort shoe world has introduced a few new styles to covet this spring season. Even if you have a well-loved pair at home, you might want to take a look at their new styles. They are fabulous.
One trend in comfort shoes to watch for this season is woven leather. You’ll also see a lot of puffy leather, which is in line with the puffy handbag trend. If you like pillows, this is your thing!

What do you think of spring comfort shoes in 2021? Will you rock this trend?
Sneakers for spring 2021 are here! Athleisure has become more and more important in the world of fashion as it has taken over the streets over the past decade; and some would argue the last two decades! With the current pandemic, people are finding themselves wearing sneakers more and more as athleisure becomes the dominant street style we have all been rocking as we increasingly stay home.
Since outdoor activities and comfort are at the forefront of fashion, and personal style, right now, a comfortable and fabulous sneaker is a must! Street sneakers are important, since we all want to save our serious sneakers for sports and fitness. With a street sneaker, we can enjoy comfort while walking around, running errands, etc., yet still express our personal style on a daily basis.
Last year we saw a rise in white sneakers, platform sneakers, and wearing two different sneakers; yes, that last trend fizzled and died within one season, haha. Now that we are in 2021, we are all wanting a little bit more fun and pizzazz in our footwear.
Spring 2021 is all about vintage inspiration, bright colors, metallic fabrications, and a bit of “look-at-me-I-am-out-of-the-house.” With inspiration from the 1970s through to the early 2000s, spring 2021 sneakers are taking on a flashy vibe. We are looking at platforms, chunky soles, metallic hues, groundbreaking florals (so shocking for spring right??), wedge sneakers (yes, these toe stubbers are back from the dead), preppy boat sneakers, slip-on skater styles, and canvas sneakers in general. If you wore it in high or college, it’s time to wear it again. So pop some TLC into your CD player, and buy some funky and fun sneakers for spring! Unless you are planning to rock the nautical and preppy ’80’s trend; then pop some Rick Astley into your cassette deck and rick-roll yourself.
Without further ado, here are the four biggest trends in sneakers for spring 2021.
Platform sneakers and chunky sneakers are a continuing trend which has taken on a bit more flash than before. For spring 2021, look for platform or chunky sneakers in trendy florals, designer logo prints, stripes, metallic hues, cartoon prints, and painted patterns.
Have some fun with your platform sneakers or chunky sneakers, this is not a serious trend, it’s lighthearted and enjoyable. Isn’t that what we all need right now? Love!
Canvas sneakers is a catch-all for three separate trends we are seeing emerge for spring 2021. Nautical and boat shoes are having a moment as the preppy ’80’s reemerge. If you long for the days of a convertible red BMW and a pink polo shirt, this is your year. Look for boat shoe inspired sneakers to round out your look.
Are you a sk8ter? Grab your skateboard from 1991 and pick up a pair of canvas slip-on sneakers. You can go traditional with Vans, or mix things up by snagging a pair with 2021 florals, logos, and more. You don’t have to look like you walked out of 1991, just take some inspiration, slip on some canvas sneakers, grab your skateboard, and have fun!
Remember the days of white Keds in the 1980s? The style is back, but with some flair. Instead of only being allowed to wear white canvas sneakers, for 2021, you want anything but white canvas sneakers. Look for Keds-inspired styles in denim, floral prints, logos, cartoon prints, and more fun looks. Have fun with your canvas sneakers; it’s not 1988 anymore, so you don’t have to worry about being caught in a pair of canvas sneakers that aren’t white. Loving this!
OMG this is so groundbreaking! Are you sitting down? Big news!! Get this, florals are big for spring 2021. Isn’t that crazy? Who would have thought! Well, at least we can narrow down which type of floral prints are big this spring as opposed to past spring seasons. For spring 2021, look for smaller floral prints, no big giant flowers. Floral print sneakers are a huge trend this spring, so have fun with it; it really is groundbreaking.
I’m eyeing the slip-on pair. I love how the floral print looks on the slip-on sneaker styles. Which style do you like?
Metallic sneakers come and go, as far as sneaker trends are concerned. They are currently huge as we see the return of the metallic mirror trend from the turn of the century. Why not have glitter sneakers, or metallic sneakers to pair with your mirrored silver handbag? Yes, those are back too, but I digress. . .
Look for glitter, metallic accents, mixed metallics, and solid metallic sneakers this spring. These are definitely “notice me” kicks, so have some fun with the pair you pick.
