If anyone ever tells you that a shoe crush is not a real thing, then avoid them because you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. The love affair we girls have with shoes is so real, we are now even crushing on shoes and quite frankly – it is quite acceptable. The advent of spring has brought in the latest batch of talent for us to ogle at and we have picked the seven heels that we are currently crushing the hardest on. Feel free to acquaint yourself with the seven cute heels we’re crushing on this spring.
With winter wrapped up, what better way to celebrate than by wrapping your feet in a beautiful pair of wrapped heels sealed with a beautiful tasselled bow. These strappy numbers are versatile enough to wear to a business meeting, the mall or a cocktail evening – so have the confidence to dress them up or down for any occasion.
Style Tip: Style these gorgeous wrap heels with a dress, skirt or shorts. Wrap the tassel to the front or back to alter the look according to your style.
Nothing quite screams spring like floral print. These trendy heels feature a block heeled design which ensures comfort whilst the embroidered floral pattern shows off your fun side. If you love heels and want the fleek gain without the pain, then a block heel is a must-have for your Spring wardrobe.
Style Tip: Pair these with a maxi-dress to go boho-chic, chino shorts for a playful spring look or with cropped tailored trousers for a more sophisticated but sassy look.
One of the hottest trends of 2017 is undoubtedly shoes adorned with colourful “bobbles”. Celebs both locally and abroad have been accentuating their pedicures with these colourful additions and the trend is set to continue into spring. Why not step into the South African spring in a pair of Buzzard heels from Shoeperama complete with traditional African detail.
Style Tip: Pair your bobble heels with an eclectically-coloured clutch bag to add a splash of colour to your evening cocktail dress whilst cooling off with a spritzer.
Although we are all incredibly happy that spring has sprung so we can indulge in our spring affinity for heels, the weather does not always cater to our every fashion whim. Like that was going to stop us. So, strap up your boots and salute spring in a pair of heeled combat boots to feed your heel craving on chillier days.
Style Tip: Coupling these boots with a retro denim jacket and plaid shirt will result in a trendy 90’s grunge look. Or pair them with a fitted pair of skinny jeans and boyfriend blazer for a hippy-chic look– beanie optional.
So, you’re addicted to heels but just got a pedi to die for – then peep toes are an essential fashion addition to your wardrobe. If you need any more motivation, the Spring weather we are currently experiencing will make you want to get your toes out whilst still wearing your favourite heels.
Style Tip: These are such a timeless classic and therefore goes with absolutely anything and are suitable for almost any occasion.
Whether we like to admit it or not, sometimes we need to opt for comfort and practicality without sacrificing style. However, if you know you are going to be wearing heels for a prolonged period of time, a lower heel is always advisable. Wear heels to work? Dress your feet in the Wagtail available from Shoeperama.
Style Tip: Accentuate these shoes with cropped trousers, shorts or maxi skirts to wear to work or for a long day’s shopping.
As far as shoe crushes go, these butterfly heels certainly set our hearts a flutter and not only because it is spring but because they are just absolutely gorgeous. It’s not often an occasion calls for heels like this but if presented with one, these would certainly make a statement.
Style Tip: Pair these with absolutely anything and everything… if you can get your hands on them.
