Block Heels & Sandals — How To Rock The Hottest Shoe Trend For Summer 2015:
If you love when fashion meets function, the block heel will be your new best friend. Not only does the shoe add an instant trendy factor to your get-up, but it’s also comfortable — and when it comes to shoe trends the c-word goes a long way in our book.
From towering heights to more demure designs, the square-like heel comes in a slew of shapes and sizes, with plenty of ankle-strap detailing. Not only is the block heel comfortable and chic, but it has en effortless vibe that you really can’t achieve with a severe stiletto.
Taylor Swift’s Block Heels — Get The Look For Less:
While Taylor paired her breezy Free People dress with a pair of Prada “Halter-Strap Peep-Toe Sandals,” there’s a slew of styles you can rock without having to splurge.
If you love making a statement with your shoes, try the Missguided “Contrast Colour Way Block Heel Sandals” in cobalt blue, which retail for $40. This trendy silhouette would work so well with a slew of outfits — from tailored shorts to jeans!
If you want to dress up the trend, stick to a classic style, like the metallic ankle-strap ASOS “Hermione Heeled Sandals.” Whether you’re heading out to date night or getting glam for a wedding, they would work so well with cocktail attire, especially since the silver hue will go with just about anything — and they retail for $73.
If you want to take a walk on the wild side, try the Vince Camuto “Signature Printella Snake Print Ankle-Wrap Pump,” which retail for $118.30. The color can serve as a great neutral and would work so well with a pretty, printed spring ensemble — or use them to add a pop of color to a white dress or midi skirt.
If you’re looking for a more neutral shoe, look no further than the Sol Sana “Chuck Heels,” which retail for $190. The lace-up straps give them an edgy vibe that’s sporty and chic at the same time.
While we love the way a bold, bright shoe or lace-up sandal can make a statement, you can’t go wrong keeping it classic and cool — and that’s why we’re loving this nude block heel. The Aldo “Peckny Heels” retail for $45.49 and will go with just about anything.
