It’s that annoying in-between season time, and if you’re anything like us, you’re having a difficult time figuring out what to wear. May we suggest the peep-toe bootie as a possible transitional shoe for winter-to-spring? The bootie gives you enough coverage and support for cold mornings, while the peep toe gives your lil’ piggies a bit of breathing room. If you’re not yet ready for sandals — and we are most definitely not — peep-toes work well in the interim. Above, nine great options!
Boat shoes, a staple of every self-respecting WASP’s footwear collection, have returned for spring, and this year’s crop features fun colors, patterns, and a more feminine shape. I’ve never even been to Connecticut (although eating lobster at Jessica’s parents house is on my bucket list), but man do I love me a boat shoe. Wear them with cuffed boyfriend jeans or your favorite sundress–they seriously go with anything. Click through to check out some of my favorite pairs of the season!
Spring is upon us, and I don’t know about you, but my sandals from last year have definitely seen better days. I’m on the hunt for a new pair of bright wedges to pair with my cutoffs and summer dresses. Care to join me? Whether you prefer a low wedge or a towering espadrille, click through to check out seven spring-y pairs in a rainbow of colors!
I subscribe to the style theory of “all black everything.” I’m pretty religious about it most of the year, but come summer, my wardrobe tends to lighten up. (Maybe some dark grey?) My shoes, on the other hand, are nothin’ but black. Black boots, black sandals, black heels — why buy anything else? Black is classic, goes with everything, never gets dirty, and black leather shoes last for years. They’re practically an investment, but that doesn’t mean you should have to cash out over $200 for a solid pair of cool-ass black sandals. Check out these 10 pairs, and wonder why you ever thought it would be a good idea to buy something in beige suede.
At $725, Charlotte Olympia’s cat flats aren’t exactly in our budget. But believe you me, we would love to own the same shoes as Beyoncé. So we were delighted —if slightly guilty — to see these kittycat flat knockoffs over on ModCloth. They’re significantly less fancy, but arguably just as cute. Winona’s been noodging me to buy a matching pair all morning and I just might do it! [Left: $725, Charlotte Olympia at Moda Operandi; Right: $32.99, ModCloth]
Fashion can be art, right? And in the case of the shoes featured in Leipzig, Germany’s Grassi Museum, the art is decidedly avant garde. The museum’s new exhibition, Radical Shoe Design. The show includes more than 200 pairs of wildly designed shoes that challenge traditional notions of style, comfort and wearabilty — so of course we love them. If you’re in Leipzig, check out the whole collection. For now, we’ve collected 11 of our favorite weirdbeard pairs for your enjoyment!
