We’re all about sticking to your personal style, but we think there’s nothing wrong about following trends either. So long as you put your own spin to the trend, we say why not? We mean, if the shoe fits, wear it! 


And speaking of shoes, we were lucky to take a peek at what Aldo Singapore has in store for spring and summer this year at The Arts House on March 30. 




The shoes showcased are trendy, but they can definitely suit anyone's style. Here are on-trend sole-mates you can add to your current favourites.


Bows

Popularised by Rihanna, this style has become quite controversial. (Rihanna sued two high street brands for copying the style.) Despite that, we’re still here for it — especially when you see its juxtaposition to a rather edgy style like the sneakers above.



Embroidery

Making their way out of pockets and hems, embroidery is now taking over shoes. From sneakers to heels, the romantic touch of roses and the fierceness of animal prints are definitely eye-catching.


Metallics

When’s a good time to wear metallics? Anytime you feel like it. Take now for instance. If you’re worried that wearing metallic shoes is outlandish, try a pair that is not completely metallic. It could be just the heel or just the strap — not both, so it’s not overwhelming.

 


Neon

From one outlandish style to another… well, it’s summer ergo neon! Add colour in your step by sporting this trend. Couple it with another trend we’re loving — slides — and you’re comfy, stylish and ready to rock this season.



Ankle Straps

If you’re more of a classic type of girl, then you’re in luck because a classic style is also re-emerging. Say hello to dainty ankle-strapped shoes and never say goodbye.

Even if the summer heat makes you want to just stay indoors and set the air-conditioner on full blast, it still has that charm that entices you to step out and head on to face new adventures. And with every plan must come an OOTD that can complement the most amazing memories. 

So we say, ditch the couch and be inspired with these fashion combos that will kick-start your summer feels. 

Maxi dress + your fave sneakers = comfy and carefree



Everybody hates chafing, especially when the heat is crazy. And why should one compromise comfort over style? Maxi dresses give that nice and airy feeling while still making you look effortlessly amazing. Plus, throw in your fave sneakers in the bunch to make it easy for your toes as you explore places under the sun all day long. 

Oversized shirt + high-waisted denims = casual and chic



Shirts are not the lazy choice, contrary to what other people say. And ever since loose tops started trending again, we say own the summer by taking advantage of the trend! Shirts are breezy and can be styled in multiple ways; and with your choice of high-waisted denims, it's the perfect way to give credit to your natural curves.


Slip dress + bell-sleeved top = sweet and romantic

Summer romance has been a fictional fascination for the longest time, and for good reason. There's just something about the tropical breeze, the warm nights, and the fleeting moments the season gives that mimics settings for epic love stories. But whether or not you're in for some romance, taking inspiration from its subtle notes can give you the prettiest outfit combination. 


Combining last season's obsession with bell-sleeves and this season's love for slip dresses, get into the culmination of these two trends and embrace your new summer OOTD.


Tube top + maxi skirt = boho chic

Off-shoulder tops will be all over the place this summer, so why not kick things up a notch and completely go bare? Bring out the tube top from your closet and pair it with a flowy maxi skirt for a bohemian-inspired look that will flaunt your beautifully bronzed, sun-kissed skin. 




Plaid button down + graphic dress shirt = upgraded street style


Layers are not forbidden during summer, especially if you opt for breezy street style pieces that jive together to create dimensions and shape. You can also play with the illusion of a cinched waist by using the button down as a belt, giving a whole new take on the look even if it has the same elements.

Now that have these summer OOTD combos in mind, why not refresh your beauty stash for the season next?
