The holidays may be over, but the first week of January isn’t entirely anti-climatic. It’s actually super-prime sales time! And yes, I know it’s only technically the mere beginning of winter (seriously, just December 21st marked the start?!), but the instant I change my calendar to the new year, all I can think about is spring, spring, spring!
So a smart snob takes advantage of the sales now to buy shoes to wear through spring. Which is exactly where these Alexander Wang booties will take you, from black-tights weather into bare-leg fun. Light-gray suede topped with lizard-embossed metallic screams “multi-seasonal,” and the low ankle and deep open toe keeps it from being a true boot. The cherry on this neutral-glam cake: you now get an extra 20% off all 50%-70%-off sale items on Shopbop! This offer ends Thursday at 11:59pm, so don’t miss your chance! On ShopBop for $220 (that’s from $275 from $550!).
Pair with: You simply can’t go wrong with Antonio Berardi and one of his pleated, wool-blend mini-skirts will take you deep into early spring. Live it up now and enjoy it for years. On Net-a-Porter for $543.20 (from $970).
