This Valentine’s Day, fashion and romance converge in a range of sweet footnotes for the youngest romantic. What better way to hand out paper Valentine’s cards than in a pair of Mary Janes or ballet flats. For those girls taking a more casual approach to holiday dressing, there are novelty athletic looks detailed in the iconic color of love.
Red has always been a great way to step into the spring fashion season, providing a burst of color before the summer pinks arrive. Over the past several seasons, red has garnered a top spot as a neutral, turning what was once an accent color to a wardrobe staple.
With red’s versatility these days, it makes sense to have more than one option in a one’s shoe wardrobe. Since the winter season’s still here, there are some novelty boots including a cozy version with pom pom trim from Kali Footwear. For those who might be more partial to pink, there are plenty of styles in both bright and pastel shades.
Next, add a party-ready style in glittery sequins. It’s a look that can easily transition for Easter for a more sophisticated alternative to the more expected baby blue, pink and yellow.
For girls who are more nonchalant about the holiday, there are iconic sneaker styles from Converse and Keds done in both red and pink.
