Every bomb outfit needs a bomb shoe to be worn with it. Shoes inspire our outfits and complete our looks. This year, shoes are featuring vibrant prints, tassels, statement embellishments, large buckles, bold colors, and muted tones. From sandals to sneakers, shoes of today are giving us a slew of styles to choose from. Let’s take a look at some of the hottest shoe trends for 2019, courtesy of a few of my favorite fashion retailers.
