Style Advice of the Week

Everyone, ankle strap heels and sandals have made a comeback. Who would have thought this was going to be a hot trend this summer? I actually remember wearing similar shoes to my bat mitzvah like 500 years ago (I know, yikes), but designers have found a way to make them into a chic and stylish go-to shoe.

I first spotted them on one of my favorite fashion blogs, Snakes Nest. Bethany Struble, the creator of Snakes Nest, sports these chic shoes with boyfriend jeans, dresses, skirts, rompers… the options are endless. They are a great way to instantly glam up your ensemble and make it look more put together. For a sophisticated shoe I would go for these black ones from ShoeMint. The pointy toe makes the shoe really simple to dress up. For a more everyday strap shoe I would try these Sam Edelman sandals. The mini wedge makes them easy to walk in for any occasion and the colors are versatile enough to go with a day or night look. For a more relaxed shoe, I would go for these Joie heels. They look great with a pair of boyfriend jeans and will instantly polish your ensemble (and isn’t the red just adorable?).

This Fashionista picks the perfect pair of ankle strap flats to go with her casual and relaxed outfit. The pointy toe on her shoes is a great way she polishes her outfit to look a little more put together and elegant. She finishes her outfit off with black pants, a cute scarf and an embellished cross-body bag. Now the next time you are searching for the perfect pair of shoes go with an ankle strap!
