1. High 50s- Tri-season bootie: Tri-season booties are usually low-cut, light colored and made from suede or not-too-heavy leather. This makes them perfect for spring's too-warm-for-winter-boots but not-warm-enough-for-sandals weather. Rachel Comey Dazze Booties ($450)

2. Sunny 60s- Loafer: The loafer is a classic shoe that can easily be dressed up or down. They are great for when it's still a little breezy outside. Joie Daydreaming Metallic Loafers ($188)

3. Sunny 60s- Perforated flats: Okay, it's finally warming up, but you're not ready to show off your toes quite yet. If it's a little muggy outside, try a pair of perforated flats. They are light and airy so they make a great option for warm weather. Dolce Vita Razia Perforated Flats ($129).

4. Rainy 60s- Jelly flat: Spring rain showers are the only time went it is acceptable to wear jelly flats. As much as we hate to admit it, jelly flats are great for when it's raining and you don't want to ruin your leather shoes. They are easy to clean and usually have perforated holes that let any water out. Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Melissa Jelly Flat ($148)

5. Low 70s- Ankle strap pump: It's beautiful outside and you feel like wearing your favorite spring dress. Wear it with a pair of ankle strap pumps. The patent leather is perfect for warm weather and the closed toe is still appropriate for work. Julianne Hough for Sole Society 'Giselle' Pump ($54.95)

6. Low 70s- Wedge sandal: Wedges are more comfortable than most other heels. So went the weather heats up, they are good choice. Wedges are easy to walk in, in case your feet get a little sweaty and start slipping around (hey, it happens to everyone). See by Chloe Metallic Wedge Sandals ($295)

7. High 70s- Flat sandalIf it's really hot out and you just want to be comfortable, flat sandals are the way to go. These are pretty much bikinis for your feet--your feet can't get any barer than this without it being inappropriate. Avoid plastic flip flops (which look tacky and make you trip) and opt for a leather thong sandal instead. Sam Edelman Gigi Thon Sandals ($65)
