Strap em’ up, ladies! This season give your legs some attention by wearing the sexy ankle strap heel. The classic heel made a comeback in the Sping ’13 and Pre-Fall ’13 runways and can now be spotted on the runway streets of every fashionable city. From a black suede open toe to a pointed neon yellow with clear accents, ankle straps can be found in a variety of styles and colors. Some may find the heel intimidating because it’s so thin but we’re glad to say that it should be the least of your worries; the trend calls for chunky heels too.
Celebrities that have been seen dressing up their ankles include Rihanna, Nicole Kidman, and Jennifer Lopez. The neon yellow pointed ankle strap with clear accents by designer Christian Louboutin was made popular by reality show star Kim Kardashian earlier this year when she posted a picture on Instagram. Even First Lady Michelle Obama was seen not long ago rocking a pair of black pointed Zara ankle straps (yay for affordable shoes!) at the awards for the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities at the White House. Stay in the fashion loop and give these heels a try.
Try the Trend
This heel can be paired up with many different pieces because it comes in so many different colors and heel types. If you’re wearing the classic ankle strap with an open toe, we recommend pairing it up with some dark skinny jeans, a simple white top and a dark blazer. It’ll give you that boyish look without looking too boyish since the heels’ job is to provide a feminine feel to the look.
If you’re going for more of a feminine look all over, try pairing the heels with a little white dress. The LWD is trending at the moment and these heels will compliment it perfectly whether you choose a bright neon color or a neutral like beige.
