In light of my New Year’s resolution to streamline and downsize my wardrobe, I’ve adopted a new rule to get rid of one item in my closet for every new item that enters. So far, I’ve been having great success freeing up valuable closet space by donating and selling pieces online.
Now for the fun part, I already get to treat myself to a few new pieces. High on my list right now are a pair of skinny heels, which are trending among the most stylish bloggers.
Talk about one flattering shoe design. As these gorgeous bloggers demonstrate, the skinny straps do incredible things for the legs, subtly and delicately elongating them. True, this isn’t the most supportive or comfortable heel style, but it’s definitely worth the pain for the right outfit.
Personally, I’m a huge fan of how versatile the design is. Wear it with a full, structured midi skirt (a la Tibi) or dress up some leather pants. For now, I’m leaning towards a clean nude shade, but there are so many choices.
I love the brightly colored options, which are just perfect for Spring/Summer looks. Patent and reptile-skin add interesting texture, and of course you can't go wrong with a luxurious-looking neutral.
How would you wear this shoe style?
