Seasonal tips for warm weather fashions
Posted April 23
Raleigh, N.C. — From cool and casual to feminine and expressive, the newest trends in apparel and shoes are giving women the tools to express themselves through fashion this season.
Unabashedly girly shades such as pinks and blushes are dominating the landscape, while creative construction and soft materials offer a variety of comfortable options for all occasions and lifestyles. Brittany Moeller, women’s buyer for shoe retailer Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse, shares some tips on how to wear the latest trends during the warm weather months.
Embrace your feminine side
Floaty, floral dresses, lace patterns and new blush shades are all trending this season, empowering women to express themselves through feminine details with the utmost confidence. Embroidery and crochet designs can be found on everything from shoes to jeans, as well as jackets, blouses and t-shirts, which is a subtle nod to inspirational throwback styles.
Not convinced blush is your color? Not to worry: Neutrals, creams and tans also provide a sophisticated color palette to work with this season.
Express your casual side
“Whether you’re looking to take the Bohemian style to the next level or you love a cool and sporty outfit, there are so many ways to pull off a casual look this season -- plus plenty of footwear to choose from,” says Moeller.
Cropped jeans, short sleeve cotton dresses and graphic t-shirts can all be complemented by the latest in outdoor-inspired sandals, sneakers and slides.
Selecting pretty and elegant fashion options doesn’t have to translate to swollen and sore feet at the end of the day! In fact, footwear manufacturers have created clever ways to deliver more comfortable choices. Consider this:
- Block heels and wedges are on trend, easy to wear and easy to walk in!
- Popular materials, such as velvet and suede, are comfortable and soft to the touch.
- Hidden construction features, such as zippers on the back and Velcro strapping, make a shoe easier to slip on -- rather than a closure that isn’t designed to “give” when placing over the foot.
“How you define femininity and stay casual and comfortable is an individual choice. This season’s fashion footwear choices cover all the bases,” says Moeller. With so many styles trending right now, it’s easy for anyone to feel great while wearing the latest fashions.
