From top left: black heels (on my wish list!!) / mid heel sandal (under $100!) / fringe sandal (on my wish list too!) / nude flats (only $110! ) / black flat sandals (under $100!!) / black flats (I bought these last year and love them!!)

Tie up shoes for spring 2016 are hotter than hot. This fabulous, and flirty, trend has been going strong since last year; and it is showing no sign of slowing down for spring 2016. This might be the hottest shoe trend of the spring season!

Tie up flats, sandals, high heels, and lace up booties, have been on the radar since last year. As gladiator sandals slow down in the new year, other tie up styles are taking center stage. The most versatile tie up shoe you can find this spring 2016 season is the tie up flat. Above I show a designer pick, which I own from last year and love, and a similar pair for only $110. This tie up shoe style is perfect for wearing right now, and during the spring season, as well as into the summer season. It takes the place of the ballet flat; making it great for both casual and dressy outfits. Love that!

Many of the lace up, high heel styles, are incorporating the continuing fringe trend for spring 2016. Look for more shoes style like this to hit store shelves int he next few months. This style was spotted on the runway for spring 2016, my favorite runway version is here. I love the affordable version pictured above too.

Tie up shoes for spring 2016 are being shown in black, nude, shades of brown, and red! Of course there are other colors on the market, but these are the most popular, or common, colors you will see on store shelves right now. Personally I think a good black or neutral color is the way to go this season. It will work well with any outfit you put together.

What do you think of the tie up shoes trend for spring 2016? Will you be rocking it, or leaving it on the shelf?

Resort 2016 is fast approaching, which means it is time to learn all about the current resort 2016 shoe trends! The resort season is short, so if you love one the of the trends, then it is important to snap it up right away!

I love the resort season since it is a great way to get a jump start on the new spring season; before spring hits store shelves! Resort is a fabulous transition from the fall/winter seasonal trends, into the new trends for the spring season.

There are so many fun trends in shoes for the resort 2016 season. These trends include influences from both the 1960s, and the 1970s; both important decades for the upcoming spring 2016 season. So, without further adieu, here are the resort 2016 shoe trends:

Color Blocking: I know, I know, the trend that refuses to die! This time around, color blocking is not referring to bi-color shoes, it is referring to as many colors as possible on a shoe! Look for rainbows, reminiscent of the 1970s, and color groups blocked together in various hues.

Tie-Up: This is a hot trend from last year which is continuing through 2016. Look for tie-up flats, heels, and wedges. If you already have a neutral pair in your closet, look for a candy colored pair for the new year to spice up your resort wardrobe; and your spring wardrobe too!

Florals: Groundbreaking, I know. Look for large, artistic florals on every type of shoe imaginable. It’s original, I swear 😉

Street Sneakers: Get your flat cardboard box, your boom box, and your moves sharpened! Sneakers reminiscent of the break-dancing days of the 1980s are hot to trot this resort season. They will be hot in the spring season too. Invest! Then bust a move.

Fringe and tassels: Keep on, shaking on! Boho-chic fringe is still du rigueur for the resort season. It will be hot this spring too. Ensure your shoe collection has some movement, look for fringe shoes in candy colors, or sensible neutrals.

Block heels: Who needs stilettos when sturdy block heels are all the rage? Need I say more?

Pink: Think pink. Look for blush or pale pink, as well as candy pink. These two hues are hot for the resort 2016 season; they will be cool in the spring too.

There you have it! The resort 2016 shoe trends to wet your appetite for the upcoming spring season. Which trend is your favorite?
