We’re just days from Daylight Savings Time and temperatures are starting to rise again. That means spring is almost here, and it’s time to transition your wardrobe. Whether you’re doing a spring-cleaning overhaul of your closet, asking yourself which shoes spark joy like Marie Kondo, or you simply want to treat yourself to some new accessories, now couldn’t be a better time.
Here are six must-have shoes for spring. From chic office-appropriate slides to high heels and everything in between to bring you straight into summer, all of these shoes are a great way to upgrade your warm-weather wardrobe.
1. American Eagle Leopard Slide Sandal
Slides are the new flip-flops, but a whole lot more polished. These leopard shoes are perfect for spring. Fun, but still sophisticated (and at a great price), you can wear them with jeans or a cute black dress. They’re super comfortable and versatile in a way that they might become your new favorite find.
2. Italic Cadence Leather Sneakers For Women
Italic is one of my favorite brands. They have a variety of fashion, accessory, and home items made in the same factories as some of the top brands, but for a fraction of the price. These sneakers, in particular, are handcrafted in Portugal in the same factory as Church’s and Kenzo. The outer soles are made from premium rubber and provide excellent traction, making them useful for travel or walking around on those days you want to be equally sporty and chic.
3. Hush Puppies Kendal Ballet Flat
Who doesn’t love a ballet flat? They’re a wardrobe staple. I love the Kendal Ballet Flat from Hush Puppies because they’re great for work, especially if you have to walk there. Designed for maximum comfort, you don’t need to “break them in,” because the shoe will stretch to fit your foot. Available in seven colors including bright goldenrod, black, tan, red, and blush pink, you will probably want to stock up on more than one pair.
4. Loeffler Randall Daphne Knot Flat Sandals
High fashion doesn’t need to mean a high heel with these sophisticated sandals from Loeffler Randall. Made of Plisse Lamé, they’re ideal for a day of brunching, shopping, or even to wear to a casual office with a dress or a skirt. The show-stopping design will bring compliments on, so get ready.
5. See by Chloe Glyn Wedge Espadrilles
Espadrilles aren’t going out of style any time soon. These high wedge heels are in the perfect neutral color to compliment whatever you’re wearing for the upcoming season and even into the summer. The ankle strap not only gives the shoe a little extra embellishment, but it also secures your foot, so you can actually walk in them.
6. Sole Society Ramera Slingback Pump
Who doesn’t appreciate a sexy but smart slingback? These linen-covered shoes (what a great fabric for spring) are available in black, cream, and light walnut. With a just high enough three-inch heel, they’re incredibly versatile to take you from work to happy hour and even date night.
A new pair of spring shoes can put a little extra spring in your step!
