Bottega Veneta Denim and Leather Sandals: Quality Control

These shoes are a combination of denim, leather, and wood, but more than anything, they are HOT. When it comes to shoes and bags, denim is a tricky material. It can get super-cheesy very quickly (the wrong wash, sloppy stitching, and the risk of looking like you outfitted your accessories in a jean suit all come into play), but when it’s done right, you get the perfect balance of effortless chic.

And just like jeans, a good pair of denim shoes will go with everything. Bottega Veneta, who we already know is a master when it comes to fabric and skins alike, is just the brand to put a elegantly modern spin on the classic American textile. With a sleek heel and a cool panel of wood you didn’t see coming, this is a chic way to work indigo. Best of all, these will showcase a cool attitude: like you’re blasé about things but in fact, you’ve got it all under control. On Net-a-Porter for $740.

Pair with: Bring in more jean-wear and you’ll be singing the blues. Contrast the shoes with a shot of khaki. With a casual cinch of the waist, 10 Crosby by Derek Lam’s notched-lapel dress is just the thing. At Barneys New York for $625.
