The Right Cuff: Top Shoe and Jeans-to-Cuff Pairings

We’re all concerned about how to cuff, which we should be, but really it’s about which cuff goes with which shoe. You want to cuff your jeans so you can showcase your shoes but make sure you’ve got the right cuff. There’s an art to it. Just look at this array of recently cuffed celebs.

Modern Mules: The Height of Fashion

If there’s one shoe of the season that I’m living for, it’s the platform mule. I wore them pretty much every day in the ’90s in a variety of colors and styles; a certain pair in particular was the standout, though – Ferragamos that I kept until they literally fell apart on the streets of NYC.

Fringed Heels: Swing in Your Step

What doesn’t have fringe on it in fashion these days? I’m not mad about it! In fact, these heels are some of the best examples out there – and also great examples of how varied it can be. On these three shoes alone, we have classic fringe, leaf-like fringe, and sweet, satin pleats.

Delpozo Dark Navy Patent Leather Flower Sandals: Step into Summer

While I’ve had my summer wedges and flat sandals picked out for some time now, I’ve been in need of a special heel that goes above and beyond chic, offering a unique element that brings excitement to any look I build around it.

TANYA HEATH Paris: The Quick Click

At the end of a long night, when your feet are in so much pain from wearing heels that you actually consider sleeping on the sidewalk (don’t tell me you haven’t been there!), you have one of two options…
