How to style spring's boat shoes

This spring you'll see stylish gals walking around in colorful boat shoes when they want to dress casually. These shoes have more support than your typical flat footwear and are extremely versatile. Here's how to style this spring shoe:

Metallic
Gold or silver boat shoes will look fab when worn with dark wash jeans and an oversized blouse. This is the perfect footwear option when you want to head out for a bite to eat with friends, but you aren't up for wearing heels.

Neutral
Navy blue is the new neutral hue. Boat shoes in this color should be your new go-to choice. Wear them with white skinny pants and a green top for a springtime look. Style tip: check out the wide assortment of colorful blouses at used clothing stores.

Color blocked
Color-blocked boat shoes are a trendy version of this footwear style. Match the colors perfectly with your outfit for a preppy look or wear different hues altogether for a contrasting effect. Put on a denim jacket with cropped pants for a perfect weekend style. You can also toss on a hat for extra fashion points.
