Ruffles and frills: romantic shoe accents

I’m loving the romantic femininity returning to women’s fashion this season in the form of ruffles and frills. It’s apparent everywhere, from lingerie trends to shoes. I’ve chosen some of my favorite frilly footwear to spotlight today. If you have any to add, please do!

Ciren peep toes by Faith

These gorgeous ivory leather peep toes have a frill detail on the front vamp and a high metallic gold covered heel. This shoe adds a romantic and feminine touch to just about any outfit, whether worn with jeans or a bright-pink minidress this Wallis Pink Mini Pansy Tea Dress.

Olivia Morris Exclusive Delia ballet flats are perfect for a more contemporary ruffle look. The black ribbon on the top of the toe looks cool against the vintage geometric-patterned fabric of the flat. This shoe is not overly feminine, but it’s edgy and has sex appeal.

Studio Pollini Ruffle Thong is a charming choice if you’re looking for a frilly comfortable sandal. It has a ribbon detail along the shoe strap and a 1/2″ stacked wood heel.
