After months of scouting showrooms, runways and online retailers, we’ve narrowed it down to the five high heel styles that are trending this spring. Designs are distinct, including hefty heels, quirky finishes, sleek cutouts, made-over mules and floral motifs. Make a big impact this season with these coveted heels.
Try upgrading basic pumps with a chic pair of d’Orsays in supple leather with a flattering almond-shaped toe. These suede periwinkle shoes are a minimalist’s dream. The chic low-cut design shows off just the right amount of skin while the medium heel gives you a comfortable lift.

Mad for mules
Mules are getting serious love from designers, street-style stars and the fashion elite. Once considered an old timer’s shoe, mules have received a revitalizing makeover. We like them best in a chunky architectural heel, but the style is available in all sorts of heights, shapes and sizes.

Floral print is a perennial favourite among fashion folks. If a full-on floral frock is a bit much for your sartorial sensibilities, then try blooms on your footwear. We love these two-toned flowers mixed with brown leather—pretty and refined.

With a lift of one to three inches, block heels give you height without sacrificing comfort—a concept we think all women can get behind! The chunky heel can be found in many styles; ladylike, sporty, casual and cool. This pair from Zara has a lot going for it with a wearable half-inch heel, patent leather and sleek ankle strap.

Time to reflect
Silver, gold, bronze or rose gold—it doesn’t matter the metallic finish you choose, as long as your feet are eye catching. If you refuse to blend in, this is the trend for you. Try your metallic in accents, like a mirrored block heel, if all-over shine is goes one step too far.
