By now we have our winter shoes covered, or you’d better because, otherwise, what have you been wearing? The weather may not agree, but designers help remind us: it’s time to look towards brighter days.
Make an appointment for an uplifting pedicure, as your warm-weather winter escape approaches – just not before you scoop up some sandals! Unlike more serious shoes, you can score great sandals at each and every price point. And don’t let the prices fool you – my favorite is the affordable Diane von Furstenberg pair!
The $500 Range
Giuseppe Zanotti Roll Sandal: When it comes to flat sandals, this makes for a luxe purchase, but we’re not talking about a trendy shoe. Gladiators are no passing fad; since they don’t go away, consider this a sound investment.
At Barneys New York for $550.
The $400 Range
Dolce & Gabbana Leopard-Print Leather Sandals: Putting a super-fun spin on the comfy flat, yellow leopard will put some spring in your step. Mix these skinny thongs up with something offbeat, like a punchy floral print or glamorous jewels.
On Net-a-Porter for $485.
The $300 Range
Acne Fleur Leather Sandals: Calm, cool, and collected, I’m loving Acne’s mellow take. Cloudy blue hues soften metallic gunmetal, and patent set against matte leather makes for a pleasing mélange.
On Net-a-Porter for $350.
The $200 Range
Diane von Furstenberg Klee Toe Ring Flat Sandals: Are her shoes so good now, or what?! It’s all thanks to DVF’s fabulous new designer, Daniel. Nude gets a shot of energy, thanks to a splashy hot-pink patent sling-back strap.
On ShopBop for $198.
The $100 Range
Pour la Victoire Bryn Buckle-Detail Sandals: Two tones of color at one-half the price! Pour la Victoire is a great go-to for Frugal Snob sandals, and these nude daytime flats have both depth (via the red trim) and edge (courtesy of the boldly buckled straps).
On Bluefly for $109.99 (from $224).
