When you’re in need of an occasion heel, you often go one of two ways: a versatile neutral or a statement style. Post-dressed-up moment, said shoe often returns to its designated spot in your closet, only to be reached for again when your next invite rolls around. While nude shades and high-shine metallic hues are fail-safe (and likely styles you already own), there’s a fresh stiletto on the scene that’s major for Spring and Summer: strappy disco-style sandals.
These sling-on heels are fanciful and fresh — think satin, patent leather, and bedecked in rhinestones — coming in a range of heel heights from kitten to sky-high. If you’re the subdued type, go for a streamlined pair sans embellishment. Bolder tastes will feel drawn to multicolored versions and glitzy adornments.
While this sexy ’70s style is standout for weddings or date night, the shoe works just as well in juxtaposition with everyday staples — denim being our top pick. Here, we’re taking you through our top 15 picks to shop now with style tips for pulling off each one with aplomb. Do you hear that? The dance floor is calling.
