While we may not feel as strongly about our shoes as, say, Carrie Bradshaw—after all, we probably wouldn’t bargain with a mugger over a pair of Manolo Blahniks—there is no denying that we love, love, love our shoe collection! If you feel the same way, we are sure you will find something you adore in today’s Chic Shoe Buys story—it is literally jam-packed with bold sandals, chunky wedges, and colorful flats that will cover every occasion in your life. On that note, read on to discover all the need-to-know details on the shoes we’re craving this month!
For instance, if you are heading to a summer cocktail party and you need a pair of chic sandals, make sure you check out Paloma Barceló’s Doris Twill & Leather Sandals ($190). The black fabric ensures they will go with almost everything you own, while the gold trim gives them a glamorous twist. Then again, if you live in heels and refuse to settle for anything less than a three-inch heel, a pair of Belle By Sigerson Morrison’s Suede Sandals ($350) is the perfect pick! They will add a chic element to your summer look, but they can also be worn well into fall. If you need something with a little more edge, how gorgeous are BCBGeneration’s Helara 2 Heels ($110)? The silhouette is super flattering and the leopard print is oh-so chic.
Now, if you do live by the aforementioned philosophy of “the higher, the better,” make sure you check out the slew of 1970s-inspired platforms on the market right now. After all, who can resist Prada’s Stitched Shined Leather Stacked Platform Sandals ($716)? We like the summery seafoam-green hue and the stacked braided platform, but we really like the 1970s silhouette. In that same way, we just can’t say no to Jeffrey Campbell’s Chunk Platform Sandals ($168) or Prada’s Suede Platform Wedges ($750)—both pairs have a glam 1970s vibe and plenty of color. If you pick up any of these options, make sure you pair them with your favorite maxi dresses this summer and then wear them into fall with wide-leg jeans and a breezy blouse.
Of course, if you want to balance out your heels with cute flats, you should definitely make a note of Dolce Vita’s Teri Esp Slip Ons ($120). If you are sightseeing while on vacation, or just relaxing at home, these slip-on shoes have a playful vibe. In addition, make sure you check out Sam Edelman’s Suede Boots ($290). They instantly call to mind the boho-meets-rocker look of Sienna Miller and Kate Moss and are sure to become your go-to shoe when fall arrives! Happy shoe shopping!
