We’re obsessing over the new Chanel Resort Collection shoes just hitting the shelves now. Here are 4 sassy new styles that grabbed our attention…

1. Colorblocking continues to be a strong trend, and what’s more classic than black and white ? In a platform or oxford, these two styles will easily move from fall into spring and beyond with flair !

2. Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing says silver will be the hot new metallic color for Spring. This mid-heel pump is perfect for the office to evening transition, with its sexy little jeweled heel and flower-powered details.

3. Another classic color combination comes to life in this signature Chanel tweed; this blue, white and gold pairing is truly timeless and we love the cork heel !
