Shoe & Jewelry Trends for Spring 2017

Today’s post will wrap-up our spring trend coverage for 2017 with a focus on shoe & jewelry trends!  If you missed the first two segments, catch them here and here.


Below are a few of the top shoe trends for spring 2017.  If you’d like to try some of the more outrageous styles without busting your budget, try looking at Zara, Asos and Mango.

Thick Heels

Heels have been running a bit thicker for the past couple of seasons and that trend is holding this spring.  It’s also an easy style for most everyone to wear!

Shoe Trends: Thick Heels

  • Zara High Heel Backless
  • Tory Burch Elizabeth Sandal
  • M. Gemi Mandorla

Mules/Moroccan Slippers/Slides

Mules and slides were also big last summer.  The most current versions offer a closed toe per the classic “Moroccan slipper” style.

Shoe Trends: Mules

  • Castaner Fringed Canvas Slides
  • Schutz Renly Mule
  • Isa Tapia Anna Maria Slides

The newest form of a wedge!

Shoe Trends: Flatforms

  • Keds Triple Deck Platform Sneaker
  • Splendid Eliza Espadrille
  • Opening Ceremony Rihta Sandal
Embellishments/Pom Poms

As with clothing and handbags, embellishment is the word of the moment.  If you like to spend, Isa Tapia has some lovely pieces in this category.  Pom poms seemed to be particularly prevalent.

Shoe Trends: Pom Poms

  • Sam Edelman Leya Sneaker
  • Rebecca Minkoff Erika Sandal
  • Loeffler Randall Bea Wrap Sanadals

On the runway, earrings were HUGE, and IMHO, slightly ridiculous. Maybe it’s just the fact that I have a small head but I couldn’t pull this off if my life depended on it.  Not to mention the fact that they look like they’d hurt.

Jewelry Trend: Oversized Earrings

A little more wearable, is the mismatched earring trend.  While you can go pretty large and bold a la the Holly Dyment earrings, you can also adapt with a more subtle stud or drop style.

Jewelry Trend: Mismatched Earrings

  • BP Mismatched Stone Drop Earrings
  • Kate Spade Second Nature Front/Back Earring
  • Holly Dyment Mismatched Earrings

While I’m still seeing a lot of chokers in stores, official word says that trend is over and long pendants will be leading the way in 2017.  Rose gold will continue to be big as will charms and layering in both bracelets and necklaces.  Art Deco styles and enameling will see an upswing.
