If you look at the world with a fashionable eye, you know it's no coincidence that tax refund time and buying a new spring wardrobe time occur simultaneously. The time is ripe for investing—guilt free!—in something new to boost your warmer weather wear into stylish new territory. Designer pumps, especially signature-worthy pairs, are justifiable additions to any closet: use them to add color, texture, or whimsy to your wardrobe, and celebrate the close of another stifling boot season.
Add a burst of bright to your fashion repertoire with Gucci's Suede Sunset Pumps ($440, were $550). The melon sherbet-hued peep toes really pop, and they boast Gucci's signature horse bit buckle in gold. In other words, expect these chic shoes to attract quite a few envious glances.
Pretty pewter makes Cole Haan's Adelyn Mary Janes ($129, were $215) a subtle metallic addition to your work wardrobe. Paired with black, gray, or brights (read: just about everything in your closet), these suede-detailed leather pumps hit the trifecta of cute, comfy, and so chic.
The rosette trend is hot, animal prints are perpetually in style, and Dolce & Gabbana can pretty much do no wrong when it comes to creating fashion forward footwear. Their pony hair pumps ($716, were $895) are certainly a splurge, but there's nothing wrong with spending a good chunk of your paycheck on glam shoes that show no signs of becoming a fashion faux pas. Match these with your most sophisticated power suit for a don't-mess-with-this-fashionista vibe.
