If the slowly rising temperatures have you inspired to change up your wardrobe, you're not alone.
But just because it's a new season, doesn't mean you need a new wardrobe. In fact, changing up your look for spring could be as easy as buying a new pair of shoes.
With jewels, embroidery, beading and embellishment, these statement shoes make an outfit all on their own. They're the one secret fashion item you never knew you needed!
TODAY Style Squad member Lilliana Vazquez rocked the look on TODAY when she wore fabulous, floral Zara sandals (Bobbie Thomas even has the same pair) and Sheinelle Jones had to ask her the secret to rocking them.
Here are Vazquez's top two tips:
1. Don't worry about matching.
Forget everything you think you know about picking shoes for your outfit. They don't have to match! Vazquez noted that not one color in her floral shoes matched her hot pink dress. The trick is treating the bold statement like a neutral that goes with (just about) anything. Speaking of ...
2. Let the shoes shine.
While the bold shoes can act as a neutral, remember that it's best to keep everything else more simple. Feeling confused? Try Vazquez's go-to outfit when rocking statement shoes: jeans, a white T-shirt and a leather jacket. Now that's something we can get behind!
