Today I’m going to introduce tips on how to style embellished shoes—the “it” fashion trend for Summer 2017.

* Embellished Sneakers
Embellished sneakers have been around for a few seasons and are still here to stay this summer. Super chic and fashionable, sneakers decorated with lovely rhinestones, beads, pearls, and strap detailings are an easy way to freshen your look. The Spring/Summer 2017 runways were filled with a lineup of bead embellished and jewel patterned shoes, proving once again that now is not the time for your minimalist shoe options. Switch out your regular white sneakers for a pair of jewel embellished ones and instantly update your style. When rocking the look, keep the rest of the outfit simple and toned down and let the shoes be the focal point of your outfit. Simple pair of slacks, your favorite denim, mini dresses, sweatshirts, and more will all do the trick.

* Embellished Slides
Next, embellished slides are officially the hottest thing in fashion at the moment. Slides, also known as slide sandals, refer to open-toed, backless shoes decorated with single or multiple straps that run across the top center of the shoe. Getting their name from being easy to “slide" on and off the foot, slides are often the go-to shoe option for the summer. This season, the more embellished the slip-on sandal, the better. Pick up statement slides decorated with ivory pearls, crystal rhinestones, satin bows, and more and inject a bit of style into an otherwise plain look.

* Embellished Pumps
Remember, shoes can make or break an outfit. If you are interested in taking your fashion to the next level, then embellished pumps are your answer.
This season, jewel patterned and beaded pumps are loved by designers and street fashionistas alike and are the perfect way to dress up a boring outfit. Ditch your everyday black pumps and opt for a pair of bejeweled pumps—embellished on the heels and the toes. For an extra chic look, pair with plain summer staples—everything from a simple LBD (little black dress) and LWD (little white dress) to trousers and blouse combo, denim and tees, and take your look from drab to fab!
