Spring is almost here! Time to update your closets and get ready for the fashion transition. And with a new season comes – you guessed it – brand new fashion trends!
Some of the most exciting new developments come in the area of women’s footwear, where you’ll see stylish and fashionable new shoes emerging, which are the ultimate blend of both comfort and style. And leading this comfort revolution are the latest and greatest women’s wedges for spring 2018.

Make the Transition

Let’s be honest – some days are really hard to dress for. Especially the period between February and May, when the weather is at its most unpredictable. Will it be a sunny 80°F day, or will it be overcast and rainy, with temperatures in the low 40s? Who can know for sure? That’s why it’s always a great idea to keep some transitional pieces in your wardrobe, so you can be prepared no matter what the season brings. Lucky for you, transitional wedges, like the ever-popular Jaunt platforms from OTBT Shoes, are one of spring 2018’s hottest footwear trends. Look for women’s wedges that offer just enough coverage for the cold, and just enough breathability for the heat. Cut-out, backless and open-toe designs are especially big trends for women’s wedges this spring. Best of all, transitional shoes like these look amazing paired with virtually any outfit and can be worn almost all year round. Talk about a closet essential!

Meet Sporty Chic

Sporty is the new chic. Much like everything else in the fashion world, that’s also the trend for women’s wedges in spring 2018. Gone are the days of painful, heavy, and clunky-looking women’s footwear. In its place are lighter, softer, and more streamlined styles with a sporty-chic design that women everywhere are obsessing over. Take a look at OTBT’s Mercury wedge sandals, for example. With their perforated leather front, lightweight sports bottoms, velcro ankle straps, and metallic shine, these trendy wedges are sure to become a go-to for any casual spring or summer look. Keep a lookout for features like these when shopping for your own pair of sporty chic wedges for your closet this spring. You can’t go wrong!

Slide Into Style

Calling all ‘90s kids! We’re rolling back the clock with some of your favorite footwear trends, now updated for the 21st century. This includes the oh-so-iconic slip-on wedge sandal, making its reappearance as a trend for spring 2018. Slide into style with these platform slide sandals – the more lightweight and comfortable, the better! Wedge sandals like these are more versatile then you may think. Pair them with the basic jeans and tee combo, or make a retro statement with your favorite skirts, dresses, and rompers. No matter how you wear them, these slip-on wedges are the ultimate throwback trend for comfort, style, and casual versatility.

Pump It Up in Platforms

Pump up the volume with another must-have wedge trend for spring 2018 – comfortable and fashionable platforms. Stylish yet wearable, women’s platform wedges (like the Tailgate from OTBT) are the best way to add height without sacrificing comfort – so you can look cute and stay comfortable all day long. They’re a great way to add inches to your stature, helping you stand tall and confident. For this reason, they pair perfectly with all of your favorite spring and summer dresses, but they can also look amazing with a much more casual outfit as well. The possibilities are endless when it comes to platform wedges, so you definitely won’t want to miss out on this spring footwear trend.

Embrace Comfort

Sometimes, comfort is really all you need. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have pieces that are both comfortable AND stylish. And when it comes to 2018 spring fashion trends, women’s comfort wedges have the best of both worlds. Not as daunting as platforms yet not as dull as flats, comfortable low wedges are the perfect pick for women who like to put comfort first, yet don’t want to skimp out on style. A personal favorite for this season is OTBT’s Wander Out, closed-toe comfort wedges with an ultra-cushioned sole, relaxed and folded leather design, and stretchy ankle band that conforms to each and every foot. So if comfort is what you crave this season, be sure to seek out quality, comfort wedges and treat your feet to serious style and all-day wearability.
