It's not hot, but not cold, not quite rainy nor sunny, and the hourly forecast report can't seem to make up its mind—so what kind of shoes are you supposed to wear? Click through for some great transitional footwear to carry you through until sandal season!
Maybe you love rocking a tomboy-chic skirt + sneakers ensemble, but you find that the stifling heat of a high-top sneaker can be unbearable. Why not try a sneaker with cutouts so you can feel the crisp spring breeze between your toes?
When the temperatures start to drop in the evening, it is almost certain that a full-on open-toe shoe will prove inadequate. A peep-toe bootie, on the other hand, will keep your ankles nice and toasty, all while showing off your fresh pedicure!
In my mind, espadrilles have always been more of a summer shoe, but a lightweight canvas version is certainly still appropriate for spring. Plus, what could possibly be more cute than a nautical anchor print?
Cutouts are generally a great alternative to mesh—your feet will still get some fresh air thanks to the perforation, but a thicker material like leather will still keep things adequately insulated.
These woven oxfords are so cute and springy while still being office-appropriate. Pair them with an accordion pleated skirt or a pair of cigarette trousers.
Lace is insanely on trend for this spring, and with these sneakers, you are sure to fit right in.
Let your toes breathe and enjoy the day!
The textured leather of these peep-toe sandals gives a little bit of edge to an otherwise dainty and feminine shoe shape. On colder days, these would pair perfectly with some ankle socks.
An identity crisis that we can get behind: sandal or boot?
A great bootie to consider for going out in the evenings—understated and chic, and easy to match with any ensemble.
These are sandals by definition; however, the thick leather weaving suggest a warmth and coverage that may be a bit too over-the-top for the peak heat of summer.
These are very schoolgirl-gone-rogue, no?
There's a snap closure in the back, because who has time for laces or jammed zippers anymore?
All the breathability of a sandal or perforated shoe, yet all the toe coverage a girl could ask for when her pedi is not quite up to par.
Shine on!
This season's update on the ever-trending wedge sneaker made popular by Isabel Marant.
The daisy cutouts are so festive for spring! I am putting a pair in every color into my shopping cart.
Embossed with a snakeskin pattern, so you can slither into the club in style.
Is it reasonable for me to suggest that every girl should have a simple pair of peep-toe booties in her closet?
I'm amazed at how such a simple sneaker can cover so many trends and not end up looking tacky—you've got pastels, rich texture, and cool cutouts, all in one style!
A slip-on sneaker like this is the perfect shoe when you are in a rush and don't have any time to even think about tying your laces.
These flats serve many purposes: They'll dress up any brunch ensemble, but can also be paired with jeans and a t-shirt for a casual day on the town.
Tropical inspiration to help count down the days until summer!
Polished but breathable—the key to avoiding sweaty toes at the end of a long day.
At first glance, it's hard to even tell that these shoes have cutouts—but trust me, your feet will thank you nonetheless!
The Mary Jane, all grown up.
Such a cool way to modernize a classic sneaker staple.
I usually imagine espadrilles in a cool, lightweight canvas fabric, but the dark leather of this pair certainly gives the laid-back style a fashionable edge.
Ideally, any mesh shoe should be paired with a flamboyantly festive pair of socks underneath.
