Girls – you know how a cute pair of shoes makes you feel! Aren’t these so fabulous!? After doing much research on shoe trends for weddings in 2009, this is what I’ve concluded: color, textures, gems, folds/twists, bows, jewels and shiny metallics. Height is totally up to your comfort but out of the ordinary is totally in!
The wonderful thing about shoes in 2009 is that there are no set rules. It’s all about comfort and adding a bit of spice to your dress. You’ve seen the trend of bright shoe colors pop in 2008…well now it’s not just color it’s shine! With the great neutral colors in-style for 2009, you can’t go wrong matching a great shoe. The bigger trend in all of this is that your bridal shoe is no longer a match-to white specialized bridal shoe!! It’s all about cocktail and evening wear translated into bridal, if that makes any sense at all! Tip: be sure to wear your shoes to break them in before the wedding day.
Above are a few styles up for 2009 (left to right):
Row 1 – Oscar de la Renta, Nine West, AK Anne Klein. Row 2 – Sigerson Morrison, Loeffler Randall, Loeffler Randall. Row 3 – J.Crew, Kate Spade, Patricia Field for Payless. Row 4 – all J.Crew.
