A favorite guilty pleasure of which women can never have too many, shoes are the sole of the fashion world. This summer, add a few new looks to your closet by incorporating chunky platforms, wicker wedges, metallic heels and riveted pumps.
Chunky platforms and wedges are a woman’s go-to footwear for a day full of hustling and bustling. A gem in the world of high heels, platforms and wedges allow for stability and comfort while also looking fabulously in-style. Don them in bright colors, like azure blue, mandarin orange and canary yellow, or opt for wooden soles, wicker accents and earthy tones and textures. Retailers like Steve Madden, Nina Ricci and Ralph Lauren carry a fab variety of platform and wedge selections.
Flaunting gold, silver and bronze embellishments, metallic heels and riveted pumps are flashy, sassy and perfect for summer-evening events. Pair them with a classic LBD or your fav pastel skinnes for a sleek and chic summer look. Refrain from matching jewelry to already bejeweled heels so as to avoid over accessorizing and detracting attention from the stylish glamour encasing your pedicured duds. Visit retailers like Miu Miu or Rochas to find the metal encrusted heels that best suit your style.
In primping for a night out on the town, preparing for a corporate board meeting, and everything in between, footwear doubles as an imperative accessory and a basic necessity. Amp up your glam with your favorites of summer’s hot shoe trends!
