We’ve all been there – you’re ready to head out the door and your OOTD would look perfect with a pair of heels, but you’ll be on your feet all day and want to spare yourself the pain. So you opt for flip flops or flats instead and go about your busy day.
Well guess what? This spring’s hottest shoe trend is the block heel sandal (a more comfortable, sensible take on those tall, harsh stilettos). If you’re ready to give your spring footwear a small, yet fashionable lift, here are three adorable ways to style block heel shoes this season.
For a chic, minimalistic take on this hot sandal trend, opt for a classic black style with toe and ankle straps. These heels are the perfect match for a solid top and your favorite skinnies, and will (literally!) elevate your simple, laidback look. Just make sure to stick to a narrow pair of denim, since jeans with a long, wide hem will hide shoes with short heels – and this is footwear you definitely want to flaunt! You could also rock these pumps with dress pants for work (more to come on that later).
You can’t go wrong when you pair two shoe trends together, which is why a block heel + cutouts = total perfection. These dark beige sandals look great with a white-on-white ensemble, but don’t be afraid to add a jean jacket if you want another pop of color! If an all-neutral outfit totally isn’t your thing, pair the heels with dark denim and a springy floral top.
You already know this sandal looks on point with jeans, but this versatile block heel is also a great choice for work. Pair the style with cropped dress pants or a classy pair of joggers, and you’ll look totally put together (without killing your feet!). These shoes are also a perfect match for knee-length or midi dresses, whether you’re spending the day in the office or out for a night on the town.
