Epic Shoe Moments

Posted by

Although it's freezing on the windy streets of New York City, we're dreaming of warm weather as we craft our spring and summer issues. And I am most anticipating removing my winter uniform of opaque black tights and baring it all in one of the innovative skirts introduced on the spring/summer 2012 runways. But all of those options—mini, knee length and even midi—require the perfect, leg-lengthening shoe.

Think this is a look you could sport down the aisle? I've got you covered. Pick up one of these shoe options and your guests will undoubtedly understand why you chose a less traditional cocktail length over the to-the-floor standard. These swoon-worthy numbers are far too good to hide under a floor grazing hemline.

Style note: Worried that a blush or a nude shoe is not the right match for your white dress? Au contraire! Flesh-toned footwear is my go-to trick for those looking to appear longer and leaner. A nude or blush shoe elongates the leg and is a refreshing take on the standard ivory pump. For optimum results, choose a pointed toe stiletto in this tone.
