Shoe Trends for Girls this School Year

Girls.. they love shoes just like the mamas! :)

I have 4 sons, so I don’t get to necessarily buy any girl shoes, but I do get to gush over the styles and the trends. My nieces are both 11-years old, so they “sometimes” let me help them with the shoe shopping, so I do get some of the shoe-girl-fix!

But the truth of the matter is, I’ve been getting a lot of questions from moms asking me what are the shoe trends for girls right now that are appropriate? Moms don’t want heels yet for the girls, they want sometimes very girly, feminine and VERY wearable.

Well… I’ve got 5 styles your girls will absolutely love! :)

1) Bold Printed Flats

I love these flats because they’re such a gorgeous color and such a gorgeous print. I love that bold printed flats are trending because it’s an easy way for a little girl to have some fashionable fun with shoes. Expressing your personality with fashion can be HUGE when you’re a little girl, and I love that shoes have easily become a way to do just that!

2) Little Booties!

Don’t worry about those tall boots, stick with the little ones! Ankle booties are trending for girls right now. They’re so chic and so cute. They can easily where these with leggings, skinny jeans, skirts, dresses, anything! I love the relaxed, and yet – appropriate feel to ankle booties for little girls. I think tall boots can be too much, this is the perfect happy shoe medium!

3) Glitter and Gold

Ahhh… very much like mama! Glitter and gold are trending like crazy! For some reason, I seem to like these shoes better on a little lady! :) I think these are so cute because these shoes just exude FUN to me. Plain and simple. They can be worn on “fancy” occasions or easily on the playground. If your daughter loves fashion, she needs some GOLD this fall!

4) Animal Prints

can I just say that I love, love, love these flats? Zebra, leopard, giraffe… they’re all trending this Fall! I love the simplicity, yet FUN factor to these animal printed shoes. Not to mention, how cool are they!? Total show-shoe-pieces!

5) Rosettes

There’s nothing like a sweet rose. Perfection. Beautiful. Elegant. You’ll be seeing rosettes on clothing throughout the Fall for girls, and I love how it’s being brought right into shoes and accessories. So adorable and so perfect for little girls. Roses are my FAVE flower, so I’m all about this trend and just think it’s the best trend yet! :)
