Every girl needs some sexy black stiletto booties in their wardrobe. They are perfect with black leather legging and a moto jacket for a badass date night look or dress them up with a sophisticated suit or dress. There are so many options out there at many price points. The embellished ones are cool and different but a simple, chic style we will be much more versatile and will still be relevant in the future. I have chosen two sleek options that are on opposite ends of the price spectrum. The first pair on the left are Alberto Moretti and are priced at $1020 available at Barneys. They are gorgeous smooth suede booties with a sleek pointed toe. I also love the V-shaped cut on the front of the shoe which provides and elongating effect. The second pair are Enzo Angiolini found at Piperlime priced at only $130! These are so similar for the price. Nice suede, pointy-toe bootie with an asymmetrical cut also creating an elongating effect. So, whether you’re ballin’ with no budget or working with a tight budget, you can still look fabulous. Which do you like better?
Leather in the summer just never really made sense to me. For obvious reasons, of course. It’s a hot, heavy material that keeps you warm in the winter and otherwise will cause you to sweat. I remember when I was in high school in the early 90’s and summer leather was making a comeback with a vengeance. You remember Cross Colours and the jeans with the leather accent down the front? What about the long leather shorts guys used to wear and the leather short rompers the girls used to rock? I distinctly remember going to our local amusement park in July and observing the cool teenage boys wearing the leather shorts and wiping their foreheads with handkerchiefs. Silly, right? Well, don’t laugh too hard because after viewing the new spin on leather with the laser cuts, you just might be caught in some summer leather yourself. Designers from Ferragamo to Jeffrey Campbell all have their take on this sexy trend. What do you think?
