Trend Alert: Foot Bling
May 2, 2007
Some women just canâ€™t find enough excuses to wear gems and jewels. Luckily, rocks are migrating south this season. Jeweled sandals are a chic, shiny way to dress up your warm-weather wardrobe and add a little bling to your spring. There is positively no end to the selection, making this trend perfect for everyone no matter what your style.
Part sword-and-sandals epic and part exotic resort-wear, Giuseppe Zanottiâ€™s jeweled mules ($475) are great for you gold fans out there, while Twelfth Streetâ€™s Patty flats ($220) are another great gladiator-glam choice, with their spaghetti-thin ankle lacings and super-shiny onyx discs.
For those who like to keep things a little more toned down, you might want to try the Cole Haan ‘Kalla’ Thong ($100 @ Nordstrom), which is sexy, yet subtle, these Sigerson Morrison black wedges ($495 @ Piperlime), or Pelle Moda’s Holler Sandals ($134 @ Shoes.com), which are another safe but sexy choice. Black leather and turquoise stones lend a slightly Southwestern charm you canâ€™t go wrong with when pairing with a long, billowy skirt.
For those of you picky about what goes between your toes, these Grand Jewel wide-strap platforms are perfect. And these Giuseppe Zanotti High-heeled sandals ($388), with their waterfall of bold orange gems are a non-thong option that will give you some height, too.
