McQ Alexander McQueen Wedge: Black and White and Rainbow All Over

McQ Alexander McQueen Wedge

The snakes in the grass this spring will be your shoes! These sculpted McQ Alexander McQueen wooden wedges are decked out in black and white reptilian print for some height with bite. Snakes come out to play when the weather warms up, so warm up your color palette with a bright spring outfit. They can be tough to coordinate well (there is such a thing as too much of a good thing!), but luckily a natural snake goes with everything. Pair the curved wedges with Christopher Kane’s princess mini skirt (at Opening Ceremony for $1,185). The design is like a painter’s tray – tons of different colors to mix on this ladylike silk silhouette. Since the skirt is so loud (in the best way possible), make the shirt and bag simple. Rochas lace-trimmed silk top (on Net-a-Porter for $805) is nice and girly with a Peter Pan collar and just a few lean strips of lace. For the bag, Jil Sander’s geometric crossbody (pre-order on Forzieri for $880) will play well into the grays of the shoe and dress. But for the jewel, really challenge yourself with another multicolored piece like these Tom Binns Swarovksi earrings (on Net-a-Porter for $345). Every once in while it’s fun to give Rainbow Brite a run for her money! Available on Yoox for $335.
