The mix of minimalism and edge we’ve come to love from Helmut Lang couldn’t be executed more perfectly than on these pointed-toe stingray pumps. They manage to look out there without going too far out thanks to the incredibly sexy and rocker-chic cutouts (ever so slightly reminiscent of Steven Tyler – in a good way!). The essentially boring black and white palette is amped up with the high impact of exotic skin. Manageable heels will make them staples in my closet, wearable with everything from jeans to a mini skirt to a fully formal look. It’s more of a challenge to find something they wouldn’t go with! Helmut Lang stingray pumps at Saks Fifth Avenue for $550.
