Spring brings to mind the cool, calming effect of a gradual change in season. For you, one of the millions of fashion followers, it prompts the transition from thick, high-cut boots to casual yet ultra-stylish slip ons. You've put to heart Fashion Allure's article about ‘Spring Fashion Must-Haves,' but to really complete the simple and easy look this season fosters, you have to know how to pair these with shoes.
First off, to achieve a fashion freedom that covers all seasons, Lyst suggests you should “ensure your shoe collection has every silhouette it needs with everything from timeless classics to runway-worthy creations.” Since this season leans toward a lighter, more dazzling palette, here's a basic guide of what shoes to pair with each of the top must-have fashion trends this spring.

Again, as a rule of thumb: it's vital to emphasize that the lighter your skin color is, the subtler shade of orange your dress should be. Now when it comes to your shoes, you can rock simple, neutral-colored flats or earth tone sneakers. If you have more flare, you can even go as far as wearing metallic gold patent-leather pumps.
This season highlights the well-defined features the previous spell so desperately hides. In addition, versatility takes the stage with outfits that can be worn either for a nine to five office job or a much-needed night out with friends. To achieve this laidback look, any style of an off-the-shoulder top – whether it's a cut-out shoulder shirt or button-down piece – go well with a chic kitten heel. That way, you effectively mix business with pleasure all the way.
Embracing the great 90s era is easy during spring season. You'll see the emergence of the chic, mega-ruffles paired with timeless slip-ons or block heels. The key for choosing the right pair of shoes is you have to go as minimal as you can and let the dress speak for your overall look. Just keep in mind WhoWhatWhere's guide to the shoe colors that go well with every outfit.
Incorporating this style takes you even further back to the 60s and 70s, during the time when people are as steady as a cat. In terms of shoes, you can opt for a more relaxed look with essential black booties, or go high fashion with edgy gladiator sandals or elegant mules.
