Spectator shoes have never looked so fresh…or tall! With The Great Gatsby opening in theaters soon, I’m craving 1920’s trends, and spectators were all the rage back then. But leave your old school style brogues at home. Shoes like these lucite Lanvins (on NET-A-PORTER for $1,590) are updated for the new millennium with a shiny wedge that would make any Prohibition peddler throw his up-tight morality out the window. See more spectators after the jump!
Tory Burch Dara Woven Cotton Pumps: These printed cotton pumps are the furthest from the mark, which is why I love them! Who needs neutral scalloped trim when you have a woven cap toe? On NET-A-PORTER for $325.
