The perfect shoe to complete any look this spring

If the shoe fits

It is an indisputable fact that shoes are the ultimate game changer to any outfit.

As the new season approaches and we clean out our closets to make space for the new items, it's time to consider the essentials that would pair perfectly with spring outfits. The right footwear can instantly transform your outfit from chic night look to casual day look.

Here are the designs to buy for this season and a breakdown on how to style them.


Sneakers are great for their comfortability and support while also being a fashionable item in your wardrobe. The cream Nike Air Max Dia Sneaker, available at ASOS, is the go-to footwear to achieve a contemporary style without looking like you just came from the gym.

The platform adds a touch of modern flair much like the other sneakers currently on the market which hint at the 90’s aesthetic. This sneakers sleek design and minimal color blocking allows versatility and a little creativity with the styling. Pair it with your favorite flowy skirt or dress, dress pants, or jeans to move through your day with ease.

Ankle boots

We’ve seen this shoe time and time again, and it never gets old. Ankle boots are the classic everyday shoe that can be teamed with everything.

If you’re looking for a replacement to your older pair, try the “Renzo” Black Booties from Public Desire. The tight fitting, pointed toe design has an elegant style that elevates any outfit. It features an exposed zipper which adds a punk essence.

This shoe will keep you covered for the rainy and sunny days. Pair it with anything in your closet from the maxi dress to the vintage jeans. With these, you’ll pull off the effortless-chic look with a breeze.

Strappy heels

Spring calls for warmer weather and breathable footwear, and sandals are now back in demand. The minimal, strappy sandal heel is a shoe that will deliver the dressy, comfortable look that you may be going for.

Head over to Nasty Gal and use your student discount on the “Suede Tie Sandal” before they’re sold out. Wear with cropped jeans-and-a-tee for daytime look, or a fitted dress for a nighttime look. Feel free to be expressive with the other elements of the outfit as the simple design of this sandal allows room for colors and patterns.


Mules are ideal for those moments in between dressy and casual. They can be worn to an event, restaurant, office, or even running errands.

The ASOS DESIGN Sloane Premium Leather Heeled Mules has an exquisite polished design which draws attention to its wooden block heel.

Team with a colored matching suit set with a basic white tee for a daytime or office look, or a cute flared skirt and fitted top to take it up a notch. For a complimentary accessory, carry a small stylish bag like the ASOS DESIGN shoulder bag with tort buckle in mustard.

I'm a first-generation college student who migrated to the United States with my family when I was 4 years old. Since my freshman year in college, I've been highly involved in fashion and business related organizations, holding leadership positions in several of these such as the Stylist and Junior editor of Udress Magazine at UD. I've held several positions in retail since high school.

I've been interested in fashion and editorials for as long as I can remember. My mother has always been a source of inspiration with her chic and feminine style. Over the years, I've grown and developed my own. I would describe my style as minimal, chic, and elegant with a hint of street style. My style has no location that it can be pinned to, its a mixture of international inspiration and a bit of my own creativity.

As a college student, I understand some of my peers may consider the same factors when it comes to fashion such as affordability and now sustainability as that is becoming ever more present in this day and age of consumerism. Other interests besides fashion and writing are travel, anything food related, culture, media, fitness, history, art and business. Innovation is also important to me.
