Check out What’s Haute‘s top 5 picks for spring/summer shoes:
1. The Chunky Wedge
The wedge is the most versatile shoe for spring and summer. The heel gives you height and comfort, if you prefer not to teeter on a stiletto heel all day! With buckles and tons of straps, this wedge is super sleek and you’ll want to wear it with everything.
Michael Antonio Women’s ‘Huntley’ Wedge Sandal, $64
2. The Nude Shoe
Every girl looks good going nude. On her feet, that is. Nude shoes are great for leg-lengthening and these strappy, Tory Burch sandals are just the trick to make your legs look longer, leaner and sexier.
Tory Burch Ankle Tie Leather Sandal, $325
3. The Kitten Heel
Michelle Obama travels the world in them, and we can see why. They’re comfortable yet stylish, and can be paired with slacks or a slim skirt and cardigan (very First Lady-style).
Stuart Weitzman ‘Poco’, $298
4. The Hot Red Heel
A sizzling hot red shoe works equally well at the office or out on the town. Stud embellishments and perforation details add a lively touch to the red hue, and the straps and ankle buckle give it a sleek look.
Pour La Victoire ‘Claire‘, $289
5. The Clog
Yes, ladies, clogs have returned. Love ’em or hate ’em, you definitely can wear them. Pair clogs with jeans for a casual daytime look, or with a flowy sundress and oversized shades for boho-chic style.
