Equal parts practical and chic, the silhouette lengthens the look of your legs without submitting your feet to the cruel and unusual punishment that often comes with a higher heel. And we love the subtle, mod vibe. Read on to shop our favourite styles.
To offset the girly-ness of the bow, try these with tight leather trousers that hit at the ankle.
Drum Pump ($215) in Cherry
We like the idea of these bejeweled pumps with a full skirt a la Tibi’s silk tulle version ($425).
Try these chic metallic pumps with a crisp shift dress and a bare—but reasonably tan—leg.
Metallic Leather Pumps ($595)
We can totally see Olivia Palermo work her uptown/downtown magic on these, pairing them with floral print pants and a punchy top.
Paging Swinging Sixties London: your signature footwear is back in stock.
Suede Buckled Block-Heel Pumps ($690) in Navy

Ruby red slippers to channel your inner Dorothy/Liberace.
Make a Scene ($70)
We’d love to see these patent leather Mary Janes with a black linen jumpsuit.
Matter Croc Dolly Shoes ($45)
The ornate heels on these Tory Burch shoes mean you can go light on the accessories.
Bea Pumps ($295) in Bright Navy

Sandals ($185) in Grey
Throw these guys on with dark wash skinnies and a chunky knit — cosy meets disco ball glam.
Metallic Leather Flats ($750)
