I love studded shoes, especially when it’s combined with a ladylike silhouette. The contrast between the two elements always gives the shoe an interesting look. I was never originally a fan of the Valentino Rockstud styles, the most popular being the t-strap pump, but it has slowly grown on me. I particularly love the styles that are not overdone, such as the amazing ankle boot above. I spotted these at Nordstrom during their sale and couldn’t stay away! The leather is amazingly soft, and they fit beautifully. They’re available in a couple colors, and my favorite is the dark red.
Vans invented them, and now the fashion world is embracing them: slip on sneakers. The latest trend in footwear makes it possible to be simultaneously comfortable and stylish. But we’re not talking about your average canvas and elastic combination – luxe materials and fun prints have brought this classic style up to a whole new level.
Back in October, I spotted a pair of black Michael Kors Fulton sneakers at Nordstrom Rack. They weren’t quite my style, so I let them go. Just recently, I came across the ones above at my local Marshalls, which I love. The tan color, accented with gold lining and silver glitter, works wonderfully as an updated neutral for casual outfits. Although both versions of the Fulton are super cool, it’s not surprising that I prefer the suede to the patent. Head over to your closest Marshalls to check them out!
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.
Laser technology allows for intricate detailing in the production of many goods, and I’m glad it’s being used more often for shoe design. Designers can craft styles with really unique shapes and patterns, turning shoes into works of art. The geometric detail in these Brian Atwood sandals makes them a great statement piece.
Everyone has that go-to pair of shoes in their closet, the pair that goes with everything and is super comfortable. And if you don’t, look no further than these boots by Enzo Angiolini (available at DSW or Nordstrom). The Saharia is a perfect blend of casual comfort and effortless cool. The style is so timeless that they’ll quickly become your best friend! I’m hoping to add a pair to my closet, as soon as I can track them down to try them on.
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.
