Take a walk on the wild side in sky-high wedges like ‘s Pierre Hardy: the extra real estate on the heel allows the trend to pack its full punch. 02 of 10 BRIGHT HEELS Steve Granitz/WireImage For those wary of incorporating spring’s bright hues into their wardrobe, Zoe Saldana shows a great way to dip a toe into the trend. Keep the rest of your look neutral and pick a colorful (but conservative!) accessory, like her citrus-hued Brian Atwood pumps. 03 of 10 WOOD SOLE INF Stilettos might be the natural choice for a city-chic outfit like ‘s, but by adding an unexpected stacked heel in natural wood (from her own Kohl’s line), the fashionista gives her outfit a retro and walkable touch. 04 of 10 SNAKESKIN Dominique Charriau/WireImage Leopard? Zebra? So last season. The hottest animal print for spring is sizzling snakeskin. If wearing it all over makes you skittish, confine it to bags or pretty pumps (like Ginnifer Goodwin’s Miu Miu pair), so it looks sexy and modern. 05 of 10 WEDGE ESPADRILLE Bronx Di Capua/Broadimage Espadrilles are a warm weather classic, but shows how to keep the look current: pairing a sky-high pair with skinny jeans and big earrings. The shoes get a totally new spin! 06 of 10 LOAFER Fame So sick of your beat-up ballerina flats, but can’t give up the comfort factor? Enter this spring’s hottest flat, the loafer. Feminize the masculine look with a metallic finish or patent leather (like Alexa Chung), and they’ll be good to go with anything from pegged jeans to frilly frocks. 07 of 10 THICK HEELS Christian Charisius/Reuters/Landov Another trend your tired tootsies are sure to welcome: thick heels to go with now-ubiquitous platforms. Diane Kruger keeps the look from being too ’90s chunky by picking a Prada pair with a sexy cut-out silhouette in an on-trend hue. 08 of 10 NATURAL FABRIC Flynet Pick up on warm weather faves like linen and canvas for your accessories, too! Model Rosie Huntington-Whitley wears a sophisticated linen-and-leather Isabel Marant pair, which steer clear of hippie territory with their elegant two-tone look and pointy toes. 09 of 10 PLATFORM WEDGE Bauer-Griffin Platform pumps have been around for a while – stars love them because they add height without adding pain – so it was only a matter of time before they made their way to the classic wedge. Kylie Minogue steps out in a pair with black piping, which mix fun and ladylike in a surprising way. 10 of 10 KITTEN HEEL Splash News Online Pretty and practical at the same time, the timeless kitten heel (a favorite of ) has a sweetly retro feel and is perfect for everything from running errands to a more casual outdoor fête. Try them with slim capris for a ’50s-inspired look!
