The possibility of finally leaving our homes for the first time in a year means it’s time to get dressed again—and if you open your closet to find that your blazers and heels have been overtaken by sweatpants and house slippers, you’re not alone! The good news is that the top spring 2021 shoes for women trends aren’t that far off from what we’ve been lounging around in. Easy-to-wear flatforms that will elevate all the ribbed bottoms you have stocked up on, chunky sandals that will compliment any outfit that’s already in your closet, and a work-from-home shoe, a new category we’re fairly certain was designed to ease us all back into the real world. Ahead, seven trends that will walk you right into putting shoes on again.
Nineties-inspired platforms might be one of the season’s most popular footwear trends in shoes for women, with big labels embracing the vertical trend.
Not unlike the platform footwear trend, chunky, two-strap sandals are a nod to decades past, fused with the newfound prioritization of comfort. Pair them with breezy dresses and resort-ready separates!
After enjoying a few seasons in the trend spotlight, thong slippers have slowly morphed into a style that belongs in every closet—no matter how closely you follow the cycle. They’re dominating shoes for women!
Big toes don’t usually get much of the spotlight, but the toe-loop trend—which emphasizes crisscrossing and other strappy details that often separate the big toe from the rest—is the apparent evolution of the thong sandal.
In the spirit of staying close to home, super-comfortable, slipper-inspired sandals like these are meant for spring and beyond.
Trainers are perfect for a crazy running session since they are comfortable and made for a purpose. Brands have started coming out with trainers which look equally stylish to be worn for casual outings and cool brunches as well. And we love how they serve a dual purpose! We’re in love with this combination of black and grey trainers as they seem pretty cool for any casual look. They are definitely very eye-catching and trendy.
Woven footwear has its bohemian roots, but the 2021 version is twisted and braided, often from a thick, padded leather for a dimensional effect.
Impracticality has taken a back seat to more sensible, pragmatic styles that’ll make putting together an outfit anything but a chore. As the world unlocks, step out in style in shoes for women, with Liberty!
