This year is all about having the courage to finally wear shoes like the bold accessories they are meant to be, and there are so many amazing embellished shoes to help us do it. This trend has it all -- from clusters of pearls, rhinestones, and sequins to adornments of feathers, studs, and chains. There is really no end to the shoe styles and types that can be dazzled. 


Even for those of us who don't feel our style is "fancy" enough to enjoy a little extra decoration on our feet -- no problem! We've included sneakers, wingtips, flip flops, and even combat boots, in addition to the more typically dolled-up heels, ankle boots, slides, flats, and more. There is something in here for everyone. Even the bride to be!
