Each season, I choose one shoe that will set the tone of my wardrobe for the next few months. For SS13, it’s McQueen’s black perspex square pump. Dipping the plexi heel in metallic makes it look as if it’s liquid gold in glass. The delicious and nutritious way to start off a morning of world domination! They’re much classier than the heel you usually associate with perspex. It manages this feat with rich black suede, a subtle loafer style, and a gold cap-toe. Sublime – I’ll wear these with everything! Plus, it combines the pointy toe trend (without having a killer tip) with the crowd-pleasing platform. A win win! Available at Alexander McQueen for $1,795.
Pair with: Like, I said I plan on sporting these with most everything in my closet. But to start off, let’s go for Rodarte’s perforated bow bracelet (on Yoox for $250). A chunky metallic heel like McQueen’s calls for a chunky gold accessory.
