I love seeing shoes in a bold, striking hue. Combine this with a sleek design and you’ve got a winner. The Aminata heel from Alexander Wang has a rather simple silhouette, but the crocodile texture really makes the red color pop. You can get these at Farfetch and Barney’s Warehouse.
There is one style that I will never grow tired of: black and white color-blocking. As much as I love colors and patterns, a neutral palette is something I always default to when I’m rushed in the morning or when I want to keep my outfits simple. It’s a timeless combination that always manages to look polished and chic. The Fastir pump by Enzo Angiolini is a beautiful, sleek shoe that would feel quite at home with all my other pumps. I’m dying to add it to my collection, but I think I’ll have to wait a bit considering I barely have room for the other recent additions to my closet. You can find this gorgeous pair at DSW, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s.
These 5050 boots by Stuart Weitzman have everything: comfort, glamour, and even a little sex appeal thrown in. The mixed material makes them easy to wear with anything, from dresses and skirts to jeans and leggings. You can get them on Zappos, Bergdorf Goodman, Piperlime, and Bloomingdale’s.
I’ve been slightly obsessed with sneakers lately. I remember a time when cool, fashionable sneakers for women were harder to find. Nowadays, you can spot them everywhere! The only problem I have with this is that some designs are becoming slightly over the top, such as studded to the point they become weapons, or a ridiculous clash of textures and colors. But for the most part, there are some really amazing and unique styles out there in addition to the timeless classics. One of my favorite pairs is the Marc by Marc Jacobs lace high top above (Lord & Taylor, SSense, Bloomingdale’s, Zappos). I love the touch of femininity the lace adds, and the peek of blue among the black. I started looking for few pairs of fun styles for myself, and I’ve come across so many different options. It was quite hard to narrow the selection, but I’ve picked out my top 15 choices that will add a little pizazz to your casual look.
Metallic shoes can sometimes look over-done and too industrial, but these are quite stunning! I think the fine mesh with solid gold piping creates a stunning, delicate effect. The style of this particular pair is also very simple, sleek, and versatile. Although metallic can be tricky to pair with, these could really be worn with anything and still look great! You can find these at Shopbop, Zappos, Saks, Bloomingdale’s, and Neiman Marcus.
