Floral pumps are 2016’s biggest shoe trend

Flowers and shoes. Could there be a better combination to make a woman happy? Money and diamonds aside, that is.

Fortunately flowers and shoes are hot right now: one of the biggest shoe trends we’ve spotted for 2016 is the floral pump. We’ve included some of the best floral heels we’ve seen this season in this post. The links are to Zappos, our affiliate partner.

Floral shoe trend 2016

A pointed toe, smooth leather upper and d’Orsay cut-away side make this one of our favorite shoes of the season even before getting to the fabulous Fracture Floral pattern. This 3.74 inch heel is called Elvia by French Connection and retails for $125 via Zappos.

Steve Madden Varcityy floral

Steve Madden gets in on the floral action with a flower-covered version of his popular Varcityy pump. This 4 inch heel with suede upper is available for $89.95 from Zappos with free shipping and returns.

Guess floral pump

Finally, Guess is also in on the horticultural act with a light floral hidden-platform pump. Honora is a 4.5 inch, patent leather peep-toe heel with a 1 inch platform. This gorgeous shoe retails for $99 online at Zappos.

 

Get the trend: 4 purple lace ups to tie yourself up about in 2016

Steve Madden sandalia

Sometimes shoe trends are obvious, but this isn’t one of them. At least I didn’t think that purple lace up heels would suddenly become a “thing” until they did. Fortunately, the strappy fuchsia look has become a major trend for 2016 and all the shoes catching the wave are fabulous.

Thanks to our affiliate partnership with Zappos, we’re able to present 4 of the best purple lace up high heels that are on-trend for 2016. The links will take you to the Zappos website which offers fast, free shipping and returns (sales are to US customers only).

Steve Madden lace up sandal

Topping the charts of our fantastic fuchsia beauties is Sandalia, by Steve Madden. Sandalia is not just beautiful but it is also practical. The shoe’s structured real-leather side straps provide strong support for the foot, allowing the laces to shine in their own right as a detail but without having to pull them tight to prevent yourself from falling out.

A 4 inch heel, leather upper, padded insole and clever design all mean that this heel is a winner in its category. Comfortable, stylish and just plain fun, Sandalia is available via Zappos for $129.95.

Closed toe purple pump

If you prefer a closed toe look, then Sam Edelman’s Dayna is what we think you should be considering. Once again the lace up straps here are mainly decorative: this 4 inch pump in purple kid suede leather has a pointy toe and over-sized heel-up to fit securely to your foot. With a small, sneaky d’Orsay cut, these purple Sam Edelman stilettos can be shopped via Zappos for $120 with free shipping and returns.
Dolce Vita

Dolce Vita’s impressive entry into the purple sandals list comes courtesy of Hazeley, a bold stiletto sandal with an orchid suede leather upper. With Hazeley the laces do more of the work to hold you securely in the shoe, allowing the sexy open arch to out itself as an equally compelling feature.

The fabulous Hazeley by Dolce Vita in orchid suede is available now for $120. Shipping is free.

purple open-toed high heeled sandals

Ending where we start, we have a second purple high heel from Steve Madden to round out our collection of 4 show-stopping purple stilettos for 2016.

Natila has a fushia upper made of genuine nubuck leather and sits atop a gentler 3.5 inch heel (measured on a size 9). The single strap across the vamp of the shoe is very much on trend, while the slingback strap holds these heels firmly in place.

The real fun comes with the tie-up ankle lace which you can arrange to suit your own style. While it is a head-turner in its own right, the ankle lace is purely decorative: it can be removed for a more classical look when the occasion demands.

Natlia retails from Zappos for $89.95 with free shipping and returns.

 

2016’s best black work pumps

There’s a true art to finding the perfect pair of black work pumps: they must be super comfortable, they need to be reasonably priced and they’ve got to be hard-wearing and versatile.

The heel height should be no higher than 4 inches, and it is essential that the uppers are made of leather not a synthetic material. The perfect pumps have to look great too.

BCBGeneration high heels

We’ve reviewed the best black work pumps that fit this criteria for 2016, and there’s one clear winner in the sub-$100 category.

The shoe is called Treasure by BCBGeneration. It has a perfect 5/5 rating on Zappos.com, with reviewers labelling it “super comfortable,” “very comfortable” and “comfy, sexy, classy.”

Treasure is available in 3 different shades of black, including black patent pictured above. This classy leather work pump retails online for only $70 via Zappos with free shipping and returns.

If Treasure is not your style, or you want to compare this shoe with others on offer, you can check out the full range of black, four inch pumps stocked by Zappos here (currently over 120 pairs).
