Nine West’s Fabulous Spring Shoe Line Up

by Tiffanie

After stumbling upon a pink and orange Nine West shoe that tied in perfectly with my previous post, I started perusing the upcoming Nine West spring shoe collection — and wow! I’m impressed!

I have always been a fan of Nine West. Their shoes fit me perfectly, they’re typically comfortable and their prices are fair in comparison to designer shoes. But the last few seasons I’ve been disappointed with their selection. They tend to be more conservative and less pursuing of trends — makes sense, with the price point and general Nine West customer, this strategy probably works. But it bored me.

This season though, there are lots of goodies to scoop up.

  1. Nine West Golden — $109
    This shoe touches on the clog trend that was in last season but keeps it fresh with a cute ankle strap. It’s versatile (wear it with or without socks) and will match any outfit, but look especially great with crop, skinny jeans. Throw on a fur vest if you’re feeling adventurous.
  2. Nine West Pawla — $190
    Love this one for being so different. The nude tones make it an easy neutral to pair with an outfit, but the style keeps it interesting. Love this with wide-leg jeans (Gap has a great pair on sale for $59.99), a flowing top and a wide-brimmed straw hat (love J. Crew’s, $34.50). Instant 70’s chic!
  3. Nine West Chartres — $79
    Color in a shoe always makes things more interesting. The army green here is just begging to be worn with your military-green anorak from last season! Make sure you make it new by wearing it over a feminine skirt — I like one that is blush and ballerina-esque (American Apparel’s is an affordable option at $38).
  4. Nine West Mai — $99
    These flats make me want to sing. They are colored to match any outfit, and the leather strands make it a softer, sweeter gladiator option. I picture these with denim shorts and an oversized, jersey T-shirt (I love the ones made by Kain, $90)
  5. Nine West Sahare — $170
    Yes, it’s clear by now that I’m obsessed with pinks and oranges. These peep-toe pumps are a great way to change up your LBD this season. Pair it with some wooden and gold bangles and a belted, sleeved dress (Topshop, $80).
  6. Nine West Jolyn — $89
    Denim was huge on the S/S 2011 runways — and most importantly, it was prominent in places other than pants. Denim shoes are a great way to wear the trend, but don’t overload your denim on denim. Wear them with khaki cargo pants (like those J Brand Houlihans that were everywhere) and a button-down silk white blouse for a classic look.
  7. Nine West Braxton — $99
    If you can’t tell, I love a platform height. These wedges, with their high, criss-cross ankle straps will lengthen your legs to new heights! Wear them with a printed, bohemian maxi dress ($198) for easy spring style.
  8. Nine West Jaxson — $79
    Ever since I was a little girl, hot pink has been a color I can’t get enough of. And now that bright pinks are making a major splash this season, this shoe makes my heart flutter! Make them shine with a white, cotton dress, denim jacket and bright, turquoise necklace! I love this one from Ralph by Ralph Lauren ($78) and this from Kenneth Jay Lane ($82).
