Flowers, and Colors, and Prints, Oh My!



The best part of the spring/summer season (aside from the nice weather, sunshine, and being able to be outdoors and feel no pain) are the wave of colorful printed shoes. These shoes are not only guaranteed to brighten up an outfit, but your day!

The flower printed styles are classic and feminine. Mary Katrantzou is the queen of prints, and her recent collaboration with Gianvito Rossi is a shoe dream come true.




A good lace up bootie is always a great shoe style to have in your closet, but it’s even better when it is colorful and full of flowers! This Brian Atwood bootie is the answer.

Nike has also joined the print bandwagon with flowers and more tropical prints. Sneakers and prints are having a huge fashion moment right now, and this is a great way to indulge them.


The tropical print is everywhere, and is more current than the flower print. The combinations and options are practically infinite, but here are some of our favorites.

These Dolce & Gabbana wedge sandals are tropical and fun. Even though they are not your classic flower print, in this case, it’s a good thing.



Swapping flowers for pineapples is also a great way to take part in the tropical trend. These Soludos espadrilles are everything summer.

For more formal outfits, these Altuzarra pumps provide just the right amount of tropical flair.



For preppier days, oxfords are an essential. Fortunately, Acne fulfills the desire to be preppy and tropical at the same time.


 Finally, here we have a couple of Polyvore sets to illustrate how we would style this trend.
