Gretta's Got It: Spring Shoes
As the weather heats up, it will be time to get a pretty pedicure and show off those toes. 7's Gretta Monahan is here with the hottest strappy shoes and flip-flops for the spring in tonight's Gretta's Got It!
WSVN -- Shoe shopping is my favorite sport, so when it comes to finding your soul mate, I'll show you what you need to step out in style.
Spring is here and so are the shoes. Collections this year offer choice because they are practical, stylish and sexy.
Gretta Monahan: "From sky-high and black to metallic and flat, there's something for everybody this season."
The first thing you'll need to slide into the warmer weather is the thong.
Gretta Monahan: "And this thong is OK to show off."
The staple sandal of the season and some even come with a bit of bling.
The next must-have sandal to slip into is the gladiator.
Gretta Monahan: "And this look has an earthy, Bohemian vibe."
So they're great with casual clothes, and you'll see them on the feet of almost every fashion forward celebrity.
One shoe that's sticking around for another season are flats, but pick those that come in bright or fun colors. They will spruce up any look, and, remember, flats aren't just for jeans. Pair them with a little dress, and you can be casual and chic.
But if you are looking for a step up this spring, try on a wedge.
Gretta Monahan: "The beauty of the wedge is you get both height and comfort."
Most popular kinds come in cork or a rope-wrap heel, also called an espadrille, and can be dressed up or down, but the perfect pump is the platform.
Gretta Monahan: "Unlike a traditional shoe, platforms are thicker and have a stacked sole, so this heel will give you a modern bounce in each step."
For a lady-like look, the peep-toe is the way to go!
Gretta Monahan: "Your peep toes will be a whole lot prettier with a pedicure, and what's great is designers are making them high and low."
With so many styles this season, I promise you'll find the perfect pair! I found mine! I'm Gretta, for "Gretta's Got It!"
