In the search for the perfect shoe of the new season, it pays to look for trendy, feminine vibes without forgoing classicism all together. The Sophie Gittins spring/summer 2012 shoes collection is undoubtedly founded on such simple yet extremely sound style principles. For the hot season styles, the designer has taken inspiration from the works of the Scottish colourist Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell and translated these defining concepts into versatile shoe styles.

From ultra adaptable shoe styles that will help you create a polished vibe for casual outfits to bolder toned ones that are sure to put the focus where you want it, there’s something for everyone. Textural touches eliminate the need for a variety of elements like prints. Soft elements like cotton meet harder elements like wood in a delightful selection of contrasts that take simple designs to the state of covetable must haves.

When delicate crochet patterns or gentle wave-like elements are so beautifully highlighted, we cannot help but fall in love with the delicate and uber versatile options. Structured or creative and soft, the options will definitely encourage you to try different styles and create a polished vibe. With thick heels for proper support you won’t have to suffer in the name of beauty as much. Furthermore, if you choose wedges, the comfort you’ll experience will be even greater.

From bold tones to more versatile colors and styles, classiness with a modern vibe is the buzzword here. From textural flowers to bold exotic skin textures, the options have a fairly timeless allure being suitable for a large variety of preferences. Stay fashionable and versatile with these beautiful shoe designs that help you get noticed without being too ostentatious all season long.
