Dear Alison, I don’t feel comfortable in any heel over 2” but I really want a fun shoe wardrobe. It seems that every low heel is frumpy and boring. Where does a shoe lover find sexy and stylish low heels?
Dear fellow shoe lover, sexy, fashionable, and fun shoes do exist without sky-high heels! Here’s some that have been on my radar:
1/5” kitten heel, softly pointed toe, and fabulous fabrics like tan dotted pony hair and pewter glitter make this shoe a fun addition to any wardrobe. I love the interesting textiles, which add interest and depth to any ensemble. The heel is perfect for trousers as well as fuller skirts.
The electric pink color of these suede pumps will bring sunshine to any gray fall or winter day. This color is so intense it makes a perfect accent – pair with neutrals for a fun pop of color, or wear with a solid colored blouse for quick colorblocking. This shade would be fun with all the dark reds that are on trend for the upcoming season.
I believe a leopard-print shoe is an unexpected neutral that pairs great with solids as well as other prints. This pump in leopard-print pony hair is fun, funky, but also quite classic. It would look great with tweed trousers, jeans, or even a traditional skirt suit. If you like this silhouette, the Diema also comes many different solid colors in patent, leather, and suede.
Shiny patent leather and a sweet bow make this shoe fun, the thick heel makes it very wearable for long days on your feet. This style has sass, but is still quite work-appropriate. The bow would look adorable peeking out from under trousers, but would also look great with all styles of skirts and dresses. The camel/black combo is versatile and a twist on the spectator/cap toe trend of the past year, the red is a classic statement-maker that will work with most any wardrobe.
A very flattering and classic style with an almond-shaped toe and slender 2” heel, but unexpected in the leopard patent material which almost looks like tortoiseshell. And incredibly versatile and sophisticated shoe that still knows how to have fun, pair with everything from dark trouser jeans to your power suit.
A classic almond-shaped toe and a 1” wooden heel makes this shoe elegant and stylish, but the variety of colorful snakeskin finishes also makes it fun and memorable. In green, red, and pewter snakeskin, this shoe would look chic with work trousers or on weekends with cords or denim.
I love the lace detail and the sweet peeptoe, but what I adore is the fabulous color combinations that will have strangers asking you where you bought your shoes. The chocolate suede with wine leather is sophisticated, the black/tan patent combo is classic, the tan leather with orange detail is surprisingly versatile and adds a tiny pop of color that will amp up any workday ensemble.
An incredibly classic silhouette is made playful with houndstooth accents. I love the heel which will have people stop you on the street asking where you got your shoes. This shoe would look fantastic with the classic menswear and collegiate chic trends that are hot for the upcoming season; you’ll have instant pattern mixing if paired with tweed or Glen plaid. This shoe also comes in an amazing green combination that could be an unexpected neutral in your existing wardrobe.
Scalloped edge, pointed toe, and the coolest combinations of textiles makes this shoe a must-have. While I love the glossy black with the gray leopard calfhair for myself, the blue suede/gray snakeskin combo is a winner and would look fantastic with everything from soft neutrals to brights to crisp dark denim.
