1. Shoes, $1,200, from Jimmy Choo
If you usually do not wear colour or if you need something classic looking that’s equally striking, these Jimmy Choo Mimi 100’s pack a punch, thanks to its flattering red shade. We love how the thin ankle wraparound strap gives it a dose of elegance too.
2. Isabel Marant shoes, $967, from Shopbop
Silver and strappy without looking like the bad part of the ‘70s, Isabel Marant’s version is perfect for hitting the dance floor (no one’s going to complain about the modest heel, too).
3. Shoes, $64.95, from H&M
Part Grecian goddess, part pretty-girl who loves her brunch, these H&M sandals look as good from the front as it does from the back, thanks to the latter sporting a girly tassel detail.
4. Shoes, $1,250, from Gianvito Rossi
The simple shape is what makes this pair of Gianvito Rossi Porto sandal heels work, whilst the material, a sumptuous suede, makes it worth the price. They’re strictly cab to cafe though, because of their height.
5. Shoes, $1,190, from Christian Louboutin
The Joatina’s merits do not just include its iconic red soles. A plastic strap gives an illusion that the ankle strap is floating (a great conversation starter, BTW) and it comes in a variety of shades for every skin tone.
6. Shoes, $63.90, from Charles & Keith
Our homegrown hero is really acing the footwear game and this pair is a prime example. Its heel is encased in a piece of perspex (10/10 for design) and it doesn’t have the shininess that usually comes with PU leather.
7. Shoes, $49.90, from Stradivarius
In a shocking neon shade of Barbie pink and with a comfortable heel height, these Stradivarius sandals are best paired with classic pieces such as single-coloured shift dresses or a tee-shirt + denim jeans combo.
8. Shoes, $179, from Zara
If you want sexy snakeskin sandals that don’t veer into a trashy “didn’t the Kardashians use to wear these” look, Zara’s sandals are your pick. They come in a solid black with a sexy lace up detail for just a touch of sass.
9. Shoes, $106, from Topshop
Lower heeled sandals aren’t boring when they look like this pair of Topshop ones: They come with a snakeskin upper, slingback detail and a heel in a lacquered black leather.
10. Shoes, $725, from Stuart Weitzman
The Nudist sandal has become a celebrity in its own right and it’s not hard to see why: A small platform gives it height and it has a reputation of being incredibly comfortable even on first wear.
