If you've just barely started emerging from the cold hell that was winter and have no energy to focus on trends, I have good news for you. The best 2016 spring shoe trends are straight up made for lazy girls, and don't involve any painful heels or fussy straps! Far be it from me to stop you if stilettos are your thing, but the shoe trends below are all about cozy comfort.
PS, the perfect shoe starts with the perfect fit. To officially avoid ever buying the wrong pair of shoes online again, WhoWhatWear created a handy dandy DIY shoe measuring guide. All you need to do is get a piece of notebook paper, sit down and place your naked foot on top of the paper, and trace your foot with pencil. Then, outline the trace lines with straight lines (use a ruler for help!), measure the length and width of the lines, and lastly, subtract 3/16ths of an inch from each measurement. Now you'll have your perfect shoe measurements to find the ideal size in both inches and centimeters. #Sweet
