Ankle Strap Sandals

I am a big fan of the ankle strap sandal trend right now. I have been searching for a great pair or two…maybe a neutral and a fun, bright color? I just can’t decide with so many fabulous styles out there. Maybe you guys can help me out? Here are a few of my favorites out there, for every price range!  What do you think of the trend and my picks?

P.S. Here are a few tips to remember when wearing ankle straps

1. General rule: The thicker the strap, the slimmer your ankles look.

2. Avoid long skirts, because the strap and length of skirt tend to shorten your legs. DO pair with shorts and mini skirts. Also, a tight pencil skirt will work if it’s not too long.

3. Pairing with wide leg cropped pants and skinny ankle pants is a Do.

4. Too many embellishments on the sandal are distracting. Go for something simple. If you want to stand out, just try a bring color. 

5. If you have large calves or ankles, nude is the most flattering color. If you have slim legs, add a thick strap to give your leg shape, but stay away from thick, chunky heels because it will just make your leg look skinnier and take away from the shape. 

6. If you want to avoid making your legs look shorter, choose a strap that falls below the ankle as opposed to above it. (Along the same lines, go for a looser strap, or do not tighten it as much.)

First here are a few of our fav celebs wearing the trend of course…Celebrities-Ankle-Strap-SandalsStuart Weitzman Honored For 2012 Footwear News Achievement AwardsL-A-CONFIDENTIAL-MAGAZINE-10TH-ANNIVERSARY-KERRY-WASHINGTON-GUCCI-PYTHON-PRINT-DRESS-SPRING-2013-GUCCI-PATENT-LEATHER-BUCKLE-ANKLE-STRAP-SANDALS-4jpg-e1354730945652

Mustard Moment with Oscar de le Renta’s Scalloped Pumps

Mustard is having a moment right now. It is one of my favorite fall colors. It stands out, but looks a little bit more adult and put together than neon. Plus, I’m not sure how well neon is going to go into the fall. Mustard is also pretty easy to wear. You really don’t have to do too much to pull an outfit together because your mustard piece is the statement. Add a simple piece or two a jewelry and a bold lip and you’re done!

Check out these amazing pieces below and let me know what your favorite is!
