Women’s Shoe Trends for Summer 2014

Summer is just around the corner! The season is all about showing a little more leg, a flirty peek at the shoulders, and flaunting an awesome pedicure. This summer, make sure to stock up on new styles for your shoe collection! Here are some of our favorite shoe style picks for 2014 summer fashion.

 

What the Cuff?

Cuffed sandals and high heels can sharpen up so many looks. The silhouette is a little less formal and a whole lot of sexy. Although we are thrilled about our new Sperry Top-Sider sandals, the design does the most flattering as a high heel shoe like the Tsubo Triss. It gives you a little extra height, elongates those legs, and adds to the elegance of the overall look . Skinny jeans may be all the rave, but full length pants will disrupt the design. When pairing with pants, try to make sure that the bottom hem doesn’t cover the cuff. We suggest that the hems stop at the top of the cuff or leave at least a 1-inch gap.

Match them with: slim fit clothing, pencil skirts, cropped pants

Show Off Those Booties!

Boot lovers rejoice! Winter may have passed, but that doesn’t mean your boots have to be stowed away. That includes even the coziest of cozy boots, UGG Australia! Instead, switch from knee-high boots to ankle boots. For stylish everyday looks, we recommend boot styles that are designed to have a little room around the ankles. They flatter the calves and can complement anything from skinny jeans to summer dresses. If you want options, find boots with laces. For example, lace-up boots like Dr. Martens allow you to create a tight or slouchy fit. Opt for a low heel or no heel at all for a look that’s comfortable and truly effortless!

Match them with: shorts, fitted bottoms, loose tops, summer dresses

Wonderfully Woven

When summer rolls around, beachy inspired looks are popular even in the city! Woven shoe styles are light, playful, and perfect for everyday wear. Many of them will come in bright colors or in a rich neutral that complement brighter seasonal colors. For example, our woven flats from Rocket Dog are bright and lively, while our Sperry Top-Sider shoes remain a little more classic. The woven texture adds something special to skinny jeans and plays nicely with many other patterns. For instance, the woven lines match with stripes and plaid, while the holes and eyelets complement polka dots, florals, and lace. It’s no wonder that woven styles are a favorite this time of year!

Match them with: printed patterns, solid colors, denim

Get on Point

Even in a plain and solid color, pointed toe flats instantly add drama. The shape is universally flattering for any body type and for any outfit. They look stunning with more formal attire, but still offer a touch of elegance to casual looks. If you want to break away from flip-flops and plain ballet flats, try a pair of pointed flats. They are a wonderful shoe in canvas or linen, but for true versatility leather pointed flats can work with anything from casual denim to a cocktail dress.

Match them with: denim, shorts, dresses

New Brand: Rocket Dog

RocketDog-logo

We have a new brand at Designer Studio: Rocket Dog. The brand is California based and started in 1997. Rocket Dog has a style where “pop culture meets subculture – with a twist”. They draw inspiration from the beach; so being based in sunny San Diego, we are more than excited to have them! Take a look at what we have so far!

This canvas cutie is the Cyprus flat and we have them in black and natural. Its 2-piece shape is quite elegant, but the canvas makes it appropriate for casual occasions. The pointed toes really add some style compared to rounded toe flats. Don’t you think they’re perfect for shorts and summer dresses? We definitely think so. Ballet flats are essential for any style, and a new season requires some new additions to your collection!

 

We also received these bright beauties! They arrived at our stores just in time for spring!

The Tia Cumulus sandals have a cute cutout design, but what really stands out is the low-maintenance rubber footbed. Wear these and it’ll be guaranteed beach day! Make sure to stay updated with us. More women’s sandals will be coming in!

Finally, we have the Chandana Stampede flats. Again, the pointed toe really adds some style and looks particularly amazing with the weaving detail. Get your pastel pants and floral tops ready! These flats are aching to be paired with them!

We’re thrilled to have Rocket Dog, so stop by our one of our physical store locations or our online store to check them out. We’re just warming up for the new season, so stay tuned for new brands and styles coming your way!
