Hot Trends - Upfronts

I am really loving the selection of shoes on Piperlime lately. I have been featuring shoes from their site a lot over the past couple of weeks, for good reason. There are so many hot shoes to choose from. The powers that be are currently featuring three trends to be on the look out for this upcoming Spring season. The first of which is Upfronts. Naturally, I thought I'd feature a few that I'm after.

I already featured a few pairs here, here, and here. Upfronts are shoes that often feature strappy or woven details across the vamp. You'll also find a few pair with wide leather bands as well.

Jester - Charles David

Not only does this hit the Upfront trend but it also hits the wedge trend which I will be talking about tomorrow. I love the pearlized copper hued leather and the gold studded accent on the platform. The cut-out wedge detail is also spot on. You are bound to garner compliments everywhere you go if you are sporting these. This is a hot shoe at a great price and if copper isn't your thing they also come in black.

Pour La Victoire - Felicia

I have had my eye on these little beauties for a while now. I'm torn between which color palette I prefer. I love the shape, the color block detailing, and the platform styling. I don't have anything like them in my shoe wardrobe and I am dying to add these to my collection. You will find the chartreuse and black on Piperlime but you will have to visit this site for the gray and black. Which do you prefer?

Nine West - Lawrence

If you like the Felicia by Pour La Victoire but you aren't willing to fork over the dough the Lawrence by Nine West will certainly give you a similar look for a fraction of the price. View them from the top they and are just about an exact match. The Nine West version varies with it's cone shaped heel and lack of a platform. This is a great shoe that will give you a leg up on the trend at an even better price.
