Every gal needs a good pair of black heels. That’s a fashion fact. While we’re currently in a somewhat transitional season (not quite boots time, a little late for sandals), accessorizing your early fall wares is all about going for a black heel—and a STRAPPY black one at that. Selena Gomez, Kat Deluna, and Lauren Conrad all recently wore different variations (from thick straps, to multiple straps, to almost nonexistent ones) of what we think is the PERFECT early fall shoe. Flirty, feminine, and easily paired with just about any dress, they’ll get good mileage next spring, too.
At the premiere of The Thing, Selena G tipped out her ADORBZ white trapeze blouse and sparkle shorts ensemble with thick sandal-esque shooties that cover her ankles but let her pedicure peep through. We love that she’s still rocking both white and shorts post-Labor Day. (Who cares about outdated “fashion” rules, right?) Kat Deluna wore the epitome of the strappy heel at the Latina magazine 15th anniversary celebration in LA. They’re literally nothing but straps on top of a modest heel and would look fantastic with both short and maxi dresses. Lauren Conrad also went for shorts a’la Gomez at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic and accentuated her all-cream Paper Crown outfit with ankle-strap platform heels from her LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s collection. They’re elegant and perfect for one of those freakishly warm days October likes to throw at us every now and then.
Not only is the black strappy heel trend versatile, you can find whatever kind suits your fancy at practically any store that sells ladies shoes right now. Pair them with cute ankle socks and a mini dress or throw some colored tights underneath on a cooler eve. Get creative!
