his season is one for the bold and the beautiful. Shoes, that is! We are loving the look of a shoe with an ankle strap. Whether the strap belongs to a wedge sandal, a pointed toe d’orsay heel or flats, it instantly updates the look of any shoe!




We love the look of a platform wedge sandal with an ankle strap. A chiffon high-low skirt looks incredibly chic with a platform wedge sandal like this. Keep your tops body skimming and leave the loose, flowy movement to the maxi skirt. Don’t already have a wedge shoe with an ankle strap? We are loving this pair from Bamboo!

Tip: make sure that the strap hits right at or below your ankle so as not to shorten the visual length of your leg.



Pointed Toe Pump

Forget the quaint shoes of last spring! This season’s shoes are all about pushing limits and living on the edge. Toe the line by slipping your feet into an edgy d’orsay pump with a short stiletto heel and double ankle straps or this spiked pair from Fahrenheit.

Pair these with skinny leather pants, a semi-sheer button down shirt and draping cardigan.




Ballet Flats

Ballet flats with ankle straps never fail to remind me of the movie Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn. They are such a demure, classy looking shoe that they should be the highlight of a feminine ensemble.

Think about wearing these Breckelle’s flats with an a-line skirt and short sleeved button down with a peter pan collar. If you prefer to be a bit edgier when wearing these chic shoes, opt for a leather jacket over a lace or eyelet dress.
