Alexander Wang Snake-Effect Wedges: Three Cheers for Alex Wang

ALexander Wang Donna Karan Christopher Kane Balenciaga Karl

Thank god for Alex Wang – he gives us versatile pieces like these snake-effect peep toes at the absolute best prices. And no matter how much we all claim to love heels, the truth is that if there’s a pair of fierce wedges, we’d happily trade in our stilettos. These are pretty sexy, but if you pair them with a precious pink mini dress like this beaded organza Karl (exclusively on Net-a-Porter for $6,070), then you end up with a chic look that falls somewhere between edgy and baby doll. For something that plays off the boldness of the snake-print, throw Christopher Kane’s biker jacket (on Net-a-Porter for $4,290) over a fitted, bright Donna Karan dress (on Net-a-Porter for $1,995) – with some tights, this is perfect for a cold night out. But my absolute favorite look is with these red Balenciaga leather leggings (at Barneys New York for $1,595). You’d think they would be the wild style you’d wear out to a Rolling Stones concert (or see Mick Jagger wearing onstage), but if you top them with The Row’s color-blocked cashmere and silk sweater (at Browns for $1,517.25), you’ve suddenly got a toned-down outfit that in the right fashionable office might even pass for work wear. Available on Net-a-Porter for $715.
