One of the best things about the end of winter is that it heralds in the arrival of a wide variety of covetable strappy sandals. My pick is a little navy number from Jimmy Choo – blue shoes are as versatile as jeans, and with these golden straps, the Tolka will go from day to night without skipping a beat. Ankle straps must be chosen carefully to ensure they elongate the leg, rather than cut if off. By making these into gilded cages, Choo designed a style that will flatter all (not to mention, keep the stiletto stable). And even though gold is a bold choice, the metallic is actually a neutral, so feel free to throw them on with all of your vibrant summer dresses! Jimmy Choo Tolka on NET-A-PORTER for $795.
Pair with: A shoe this metallic demands at least one other golden accessory – Fallon’s microspike and crystal ear cuff (at Barneys New York for $225).
