This seems to be the style of the moment. It has a much more modern feel to it, which lends itself to structured outfits.
You’ll have to be the judge on the ankle strap. It never seems to work for me. It makes me feel like my legs are stubby. Although, I’ve loved this style on other women I’ve seen wearing it. So – if you’re liking the vibe … give them a try.
The heel on this style is almost inevitably blocky. Sometimes you’ll see a lucite heel, and that’ my favorite. That was the first pair I ever noticed. A woman picking her son up from school was wearing them with a fluid dark denim skirt, and a navy tee tucked in. It was a very french look. Somehow the shoe elevated the look of the denim skirt, which could have been dowdy with the wrong shoe.
Let’s just say, I’m intrigued. I know I like the look, but I trying to figure out if I can pull it off. Can you?
