If there’s one trend we’re glad we borrowed from the strippers, it has to be PVC pumps (tassels are a close second). Thankfully, it was more like a tiny dose of inspiration, and the styles that the likes of Manolo and Valentino are churning out have been nothing short of classy and beautiful. Even less expensive versions by brands like BCBG have us sweating the trend. You have to admit, there’s something reminiscent of Cinderella and her glass slipper going on here (don’t act like you didn’t want a pair). And if you’re still worried about their super sex appeal, stick to longer skirts and dresses or pair them with some well-tailored trousers, so no one will mistake you for a street walker.
So, are you convinced that these are officially perfectly appropriate daytime shoes? Check out our favorite pairs in the slideshow below and decide.
