Summer 2015 Trends and the UKIES Heels to Wear With Them

You may have noticed it on the streets already, but the 70s are back in a big way this summer. (Um, did they ever leave?) During these warm months, fashion is energetic, bold, and all about you.Here, we’re breaking down six of the coolest summer 2015 trends — and recommending a heel to go with each one, because we just can’t help ourselves.


Flowing Hippie Dresses

Long, billowing gowns were seen at Alberta Ferretti, Etro, and Chloé’s S/S 2015 runway shows. Designers typically paired dresses like these with strappy sandals, but if you’re hoping to take the look to the office, opt for a knee-length dress and stay professional — while lightly echoing the 70s — by wearing a shoe with a slight platform. Our pick? The Paris pump in the color of your choosing.





It’s not just for soldiers anymore. Khaki popped up on this season’s runways at Mark Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, and Sonia Rykiel, among others. Chanel paired a suede khaki outfit with a gold shoe, which plays nicely off the earthy tones of the clothing. When you take this trend out, we recommend pairing it with the Arianna heel in Starry Gold Nappa.





Utilitarian jumpsuits that managed to remain cool and flattering were all over the runways at Dior, Pucci, and Ralph Lauren. Pair your sleekest jumpsuit with a high heel in matte black — like the Paris pump in Twilight Black Nappa — to keep the look classic and sharp, not plumber-esque.





You may not own a yacht — yet! — but you certainly can dress like a woman who owns one. Sharp navy coats, dresses, and suits with bright brass buttons were seen at Lanvin, Chloé, and Marc Jacobs. Wear them with our Paris pump in shiny Midnight Blue Patent to keep your outfit ship-shape from head to toe.




70s Sparkle

Short, sparkly dresses were spotted at Saint Laurent and Isabel Marant, perfect for your next late-late-late night out. To avoid looking like an actual disco ball, avoid metallic shoes when opting for a shiny dress, and try a complimentary pop of color instead. For a gold dress, go for the Arianna heel in Red Python Nappa, while silver dresses are lovely with blue, like the Paris pump in Midnight Blue Patent. Bonus: our heels are comfy enough to dance in all night.





Ethereal skirts and dresses glided down the runways at Giorgio Armani, Valentino, and Alberta Ferretti, inspired by the grace and beauty of classical dance. Don’t try to fight these shades of blush and cream with a contrasting shoe; instead, pair your ballet-inspired outfit with something equally soft and lovely, like the Paris pump in a matte Blush Nude Nappa.


 Whatever summer trend you follow, be sure to get the heels to match. Shop our collection of pumps today!
