Fashion can sometimes take a backseat in cold weather. Convenience becomes more of a luxury than style. In LA I love to slip on sandals, but even here it does get chilly and flip-flops make you look a little silly in the winter (even if the sun is shining!). It’s hard to find fun closed toe flats, but I’ve searched high and low to find the best that give you the perfect combo of glamour and pragmatism!
Opening Ceremony Bronze Juiletta Loafers: You can always rely on Opening Ceremony for a little quirkiness. Black flats get some TLC with a metallic heart panel.
On Ssense for $330.
Stuart Weitzman Studded Smoking Shoes: Studs are a great way to freshen a basic design, but the spikes are what add edge and make these special.
On ShopBop for $385.
Tod’s Metallic Leather Moccasin Drivers: My old stand-by. Tod’s is synonymous with quality and simple style. Plus, a rubber sole in the snow – life-saving.
At Saks Fifth Avenue for $425.
Nicholas Kirkwood Glitter-Finished Suede Loafers: Brits have a reputation for being stoic and serious, but Kirkwood always shows just how wrong that is – festive glitter trimmed in zigzag with a crazy structured heel!
Exclusively on Net-a-Porter for $895.
Charlotte Olympia Bisoux Suede and Calf-Hair Loafers: A Cyber Monday sale item! I love Charlotte’s sense of fun – these red cutout lips pucker with each step you take.
On Net-a-Porter for $486.50.
