So I’m going to let you in on a little secret….ankle strapped heels are THE best. I’ve been obsessed with they style since I was a tot rummaging through my moms closet to find her black patent leather ankle strapped heels; I would pretend I was going somewhere fancy, the opera, a dance, shopping and the only heels suitable for the occasion were those ankle straps.
And just so you’re clear, here’s a few reasons why ankle straps just can’t be beat…
- It’s versatile – you can have an ankle strap wedge, pump, sandal, bootie et al
- Straps can be hidden to tone day your day look and exposed for evening
- I believe they make your legs, all shapes and all sizes look great – just adds a level of chic and class that can’t happen with any other style outside of a pump or slingback (my other obsession)
- They work with almost any outfit, shorts, pants, skirts, dresses; they look well with tights and socks
Ok enough of that, you get the point. Check out some of my favs below….
