Celebrity fashion lines can be tough to navigate. These gals can create hype for reasons that don’t depend upon a well-tailored pant, so it’s sometimes hard to tell if their forays into fashion are really worth your cash. We’ll comb through the virtual racks and show you the best of the star-branded items.
We know Jessica Simpson was on Mr. Blackwell’s definitive worst-dressed list this year. And all those terrycloth garments during Newlyweds may have been slight fashion missteps. But more than once when I’ve ooohed and ahhed at a friend’s well-appointed feet, it was Jessica Simpson (nominally, at least) who’d outfitted them. Not all of the designs in her line hit the style mark, but there are a number of exceedingly well-priced basics to be found. Here are our top five picks.
These round-toe pumps ($69) are more whimsical than the average pointy pair.
Red patent leather looks demure on these peep-toe wedges (were $68.95, now $34.89).
A sturdy heel and a platform make these python peep-toe pumps ($79) a solid choice for an evening out and about.
At almost four inches, these patent d’Orsay pumps ($79) have serious night-out potential.
In bejeweled leather, these flats ($75) are all glammed up and ready to go.
