Sometimes getting dressed is hard. Whether you have a packed-to-capacity closet, or take a more minimalist approach when it comes to fashion, there’s no denying that occasionally we all get what we like to call “dresser’s block”—especially when it comes to building outfits for this time of the year, when the weather’s neither freezing nor hot. The good news is that you can always build an outfit around a wardrobe staple that you already own, like the ubiquitous ankle strap heels. Below are some of our favorite looks that will carry you through the next few months.
Strap Heels with Pleated Skirt
The ladylike and pretty option- we love how you can either go pastel and feminine like Jessica Alba (photo 1), crisp and business-like à la Victoria Beckham, wear it with a bold print (photo 2) or add layers like Jamie Chung for a more edgy night-out look (photo 4).
Strap Heels With Jeans
Use strap heels to elongate your legs in jeans and elevate a casual outfit. Keep things soft and simple with cosy knits in a neutral palette (photo 1 and 3), go for a more structured fall look in a moto jacket (photo 2), or dress up for a night out by throwing on a jewel toned cardigan à la Chrissy Teigen (photo 4).
Strap Heels With Dress
Strap heels are versatile enough to complement your basic dress outfits (photo 3 and 4) while not competing with bolder looks (photo 1 and 2).
And that's it! 20 fresh ways to style strap heel sandals with clothes you probably already have in your closet.
Psst...if your feet hurt while walking in your strap heels, check out our NASA-tech, space foam insoles for high heels
. Elevating our feet in heels pushes our bodies forward and changes the way we balance and walk, concentrating pressure on the balls of your feet and leading to the familiar burning-ball-of-foot sensation. Good insoles can make a world of difference. You can read more about Airpufs here, or, because we are undoubtedly biased, read our reviews.
