Staple Summer Footwear Combines Comfort And Style
Unlike other seasons of the year, any woman can afford to choose from a large range of footwear to wear in summer since she does not have to bother about protecting her feet from cold.
Though heels continue to be in fashion for parties and formal occasions, the trend in summer is to wear flats which are both fashionable and comfortable for most other occasions where a choice is available. Many designers have had their models wear sandals. Prada has introduced brightly colored strappy sandals with crystals of different colors. Marc Jacobs had models with eveningwear wearing sports sandals. Emporio Armani had fashioned their look this year with models wearing chunky sandals with thick soles which cushion the feet, making these comfortable sandals the ideal footwear to wear for long distances.
While sandals may be suitable for models who are usually tall, the average woman continues to keep at least one pair of heels for parties and dining out, to add a touch of glamour. Calvin Klein introduced strapped heels which offer support to the feet, Gucci used high heels that were elastic, and Giorgio Armani had his models wearing midi heels with ankle straps. The classic flat shoes with pointed ends are back in fashion now, and the different models available can be made as comfortable as required to match the budget as well as style requirements of the wearer.
These pointed flat shoes can be adapted to suit all occasions, for parties as well as formal work wear. For formal occasions like office, where black shoes are part of the dress code, pointed shoes from leather or lace are available or even shoes with a metallic look can be used. Many designers have introduced shoes with crystals, stones and other embellishments for party wear. For fun occasions inexpensive PVC shoes are available in a number of funky patterns suitable for all occasions. Flip-flops in different designs and colors continue to be popular with women of all ages for informal occasions like picnics and beach holidays.
