A gold shoe is striking, and doesn’t have to be worn only on special occasions. One of the best ways to make a statement is to wear evening shoes during the day. Luxe materials and details like rhinestones, satin, and velvet can easily pair with simple day dresses and jeans, you just have to be brave and confident with your style.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I thought I’d pick a themed shoe for today, considered it’s a day to celebrate all kinds of love, including love for shoes. I’m not normally a fan of bows on footwear, but I find the Chrissie by Kate Spade quite beautiful. The entire shoe is elegant, feminine, and still sexy. Crafted with satin fabric, this heeled sandal looks sleek and sensual with it’s subtle shine and the bow on the heel adds a playful touch. You can find this red darling at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, and in black at Zappos.
Chilly weather brings out the best in booties. There are fun, fashionable styles with a lot of height an attitude, and then there are down-to-earth, cool and casual styles that are just as great. Moto boots are one of those styles that will always be around; comfortable, edgy, yet classic and even sometimes sophisticated. This particular pair from Jimmy Choo is part of the 24:7 collection, which was launched with an assortment of iconic styles intended to take the woman from day to night with ease.
I wasn’t quite sure how I felt when wedge sneakers caught on as a trend. Nowadays, I just can’t get enough of them! But we all know I tend to lean more towards simple, classic, with just a touch of edge. So most of the wedge sneakers I see out there are way too much and don’t go with the majority of my casual looks. I love this pair by Giuseppe Zanotti.
I absolute love these amazing boots from Jimmy Choo; the color is fantastic, and the lattice detail is extremely unique, especially because it covers such a large area of the boot. I can just imagine wearing these with contrasting socks or tights underneath. Unfortunately, they retail at $2195 (Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks), which is about two and a half times the amount of my rent. So there’s no way I’ll be getting these anytime soon.
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.
You can always count on gorgeous, delicate evening shoes from Jimmy Choo. The Ivette sandal (Nordstrom, Saks) particularly stands out because the straps are thoughtfully placed in a way that accentuates the curves of the foot and ankle; the shoe looks very elegant when worn! It’s available in both gold and silver leather with a 3.5″ heel. If you’re looking for something higher, the Lang sandal has the exact same strap construction except with a higher heel. You can find Lang in silver, pink, nude, and neon yellow.
Victoria’s Secret Pointed-ToePump
The most trending style you couldn’t help but notice this spring was studded shoes, and the most popular came from Valentino. The Rockstud (Saks, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom) has been spotted on celebrities and bloggers, which quickly made them very popular. I think it’s because Valentino took an element reserved for hardcore punk styles and pared it down to something that is sophisticated, sleek, sexy, and edgy all at the same time. It’s not surprising that many other brands took inspiration from the original Valentino designs.
