I have three pairs of Tribute high-heeled sandals (I feel like every snob has at least one pair of these ceaseless shoes in her closet). I love the way they look, but I’ve always complained about the sharp stiletto heel – for such a comfortable shoe, the dagger-like stiletto sometimes seems too severe. A new version in a thicker wooden heel may just be the answer!
Yves Saint Laurent’s blonde wood is so neutral and pretty, and a dash of sporty striping on the bottom of the platform enhances the casual appeal. Contrasted with shiny, textured straps, this is the most playful take on the Tribute to date. This just cements the fact that the style is not going anywhere. With a look that’s as soft as sand, this pearly rendition is the shoe to wear with everything this summer! On Net-a-Porter for $1,095.
Pair with: I’ll welcome in the summer with a cheeky necklace in shimmering gold. Finn’s Pygmy Seahorse pendant, complete with diamond eyes and a curly tail, is cute way to pay tribute to the ocean. At Barneys New York for $995.
