Notice a lot of midriff lately? That’s because cropped tops are all the rage. But before you whip out your ’90s tops, bare in mind the style nowadays is slightly less cropped than its predecessor. Ideally, the exposure range you want is from a sliver to 2 inches (give or take!)

Spring/Summer 2014 Trend Watch – Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

If you’ve been wondering what’s “in” for shoes this spring/summer, then you’ve come to the right place. While nothing ever really goes “out”, since every type of shoe was represented during the international fashion weeks, there are some major trends you might want to consider for your feet. For many, myself included, shoes are a weakness and you can never have too many pairs!

Derek Lam SS2014

The gladiator sandal, seen here at Derek Lam, is back in full force. From high-knee versions to classic ankle, the gladiator sandal is sexy and dramatic. The sandals are a major focal point, so it’s wise to play down your overall outfit. Celebrities like Rita Ora, Kourtney Kardashian and Selena Gomez have all been spotted wearing them!

Christian Dior SS2014

Christian Dior SS2014

Shoes with ankle straps are all the rage at the moment. Part 1940s with a dash of modern, there’s an ankle strap on shoes from casual to dressy. The Christian Dior shoes seen here, fuse luxe with sporty elements. While ankle straps are adorable, consider how they will look on you personally. If you have larger ankles or a short leg, take time choosing the right one for you.

Jil Sander SS2014 and Jay Adoni metallic shoes available on The Peacock Parade

Designers like Anna Sui and Jil Sander showcased metallic menswear-inspired shoes. Gold, silver, bronze and hues in between were wildly popular during fashion weeks. Metallic brogues and oxfords look incredible with a feminine dress or cropped pant.

Stella McCartney SS2014

Stella McCartney SS2014

Thick, stacked heels made a huge impression on the international runways this year, while stilettos and pin-thin heels took a backseat. We’re not complaining. These shoes are easy to walk in, look amazing and won’t get caught in sewer grates!

Gucci SS2014 and Jay Adoni sandals available on The Peacock Parade

Shoes and sandals with straps were also a popular runway choice. Slightly similar to the gladiator sandal, these shoes ooze sex appeal because of their bondage-inspired appearance.
