A black and white cap-toe pump from Chanel would be chic in itself, but why stop at something so simple? Show off your nautical side with the Cruise collection’s knot-shaped heels! Though I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, I’m also dreaming of white sandy beaches and a vacation like that demands fun, chic pieces that will get you excited for the surf and sea. Chanel has literally roped me in with this shoe, and I have no plans on struggling (just give in and buy yourself one more pre-Christmas present!). Worn on the runway with everything from crisply tailored jackets to wide-legged jeans to lace shorts, it’s a pump with surprising versatility. While available in always-wearable nude, I would go with classic black and white – the graphic combo was red hot last year, and the trend is going strong for 2014. Chanel two tone pumps at Chanel for $875.
