Shoe closet brimming with scuffed-up party pumps? No one said leading the pack was easy. Cocktail season will be here in a blink and (phew!) we have your most-wanted kicks list covered. From two-toned confections that’ll have you tied up with a bow (easy, now) to low-key low-tops that rock (bien fait, Isabel Marant)—take a stroll through our sexy shoe buffet, without actually taking a step. (The fewer scuffs, the better.)
Looking to emulate the clever stylings of your favorite Hollywood fashion plate? The one who never ever misses a beat (think of flossy, toothsome stars like Kate Bosworth, Zoe Saldana, and Diane Kruger)? Then it’s time to embrace your love-hate relationship with rule breaking. Studded sweatshirt? Gotta own one. Box bag with a gun metal chain wristlet? Serious conversation starter. Or what about your hunt for classic flat boots? Why not take it over the top (you saucy minx, you), and go over the knee. And the survey says… You’re Scandal star Kerry Washington—in character as sexy sophisticate Olivia Pope—and guest starring on Sons of Anarchy. Nowthat’s big-time.
