The printed shoes

Do you remember when I talked about nude shoes last week? Nude shoes that make your legs look longer because they create a seamless transition between your skin and shoes ? Nude shoes that perfectly match outfit as they are completely neutral ? Well, printed shoes are the total opposite, bold, colorful and not so easy to match, this season's prints will (also) be on our feet.

sources: Sally, Michelle Koesnadi and Elin



I have to be honest and say that I was only convinced when I saw the gorgeous Elin wearing an all black outfit with colorful flowers shoes. I'm not such a big fan of mixing prints like the fashion world is telling us to so for me the only option is really to wear printed shoes with a monochrome or neutral oufit just like Elin.

From the (now) classic flower prints to modern artsy patterns, the choices of printed shoes are endless. I have selected just a sample but you will be able to find many others, don't hesitate to share your findings with me.

From top left: Dolce & Gabanna flower pumps (harrods), Dr Martens flower boots (topshop), Tabitha Simmons
sandals (thecorner), flower pumps (nine west), flower wedges (zara), flower pointed pumps (asos)



From top left: Nicholas Kirkwood pumps (thecorner), Charlotte Olympia wedges (matches fashion), printed sandals (zara), peep-toe pumps (new look), Gianvito Rossi sling-backs (thecorner), Nicholas Kirkwood lace pumps (harrods)


From top left: Manolo Blahnik navy/white stripes pumps (saks), yellow/white stripes (barneys),
Miu Miu red/white and blue/white vichy sling-backs

Even though I am a fan I'm not sure that I will fall for this trend just yet. Not because I don't like it but because between nude shoes, cool summer sandals and printed shoes a girl (unfortunatley) has to choose. However, if I do fall for them I'll probably go for an affordable version of Nicholas Kirkwood multicolor pumps, my favorite ♥.

How about you, what are YOUR favorites ? And more importantly how would you wear printed shoes ?

Have a great week my lovely readers ! xx

  2. Coucou Marta,

    Même si je ne suis pas super fan, j'avoue que je suis folle des Miu Miu, surtout des oranges....Depuis que je les ai spottées début d'année, je les veux!! Tu vois, je devrais faire un post spécialement pour en parler tellement elles m'obsèdent! Pour le reste, je pense qu'il faut vraiment une tenue super neutre genre monochrome pour adopter les imprimés aux pieds! Joli post!! A bientôt :-)
