so happy to be strappy

27 Mar

I can’t look at a store front, magazine or blog without being bombarded with strappy heels for spring- but I don’t hate it one bit.  This extremely leg slimming style and overall flattering shape is perfect to pair with anything and everything from boyfriend jeans to skater skirts.  What’s even more fun is that with so little material, it’s easy to go bold with wild colors and patterns like metallic or neon without overdoing it.  Since the trend started taking over runways for spring, I fell in love- and have already scored a pair for myself in classic black, white and gold.  Glamour Magazine’s tip: the thicker the ankle band, the skinnier your ankle will look.

Elongate legs in shorts and heels- just make sure the higher the heel the longer the shorts!

Feeling overwhelmed in print pants? Pair it with a simple shoe.
