While bright colors are certainly making their statement this spring season, minimalists please don’t fret. The textures of the outdoors are also in the mix. Natural woods are showing on the heels of some of the highest and fun chunky heels. I certainly love the bright colors and am excited to add these palettes to my already burdened shoe closet but there is still something very appealing to the look of these wooden high heels, purses and even jewelry. While I don’t necessarily think these are the greatest pairings with the pinks, greens and yellows that are flashing across the fashion magazines, I do think the natural look looks very appealing with black, white and of course the creams and browns.
There is nothing quite like going to the beach for a romantic dinner wearing a simple cream flowey dress with wooden adornments. It’s almost as if you become as appealing as the natural setting.
Personally, I love the wooden heels that started coming out late in the fall of 2011 as a teaser to the upcoming trend of the spring. The heels almost look like furniture of the feet. They are playful, charming and in some strange way they are a bit sophisticated. Coming off the very thin stilettos heel, the chunky heel of the spring adapts well to this natural approach.
I’m on my way to Las Vegas next weekend so the vendors have been wonderful in mailing every catalog to me in advance. I have seen a few of the platforms following the same suit as the heel having a very heavily stated front platform lift. It’s a very interesting look and one I will definately be adding to my assortment of shoes.
