On the mornings when I simply can’t decide what to wear, I tend to leave the decision up to my shoes. Take the boldest pair, throw on a pair of skinny jeans, grab a blazer and crisp Equipment blouse and I’m good to go. Clearly, relying on my shoes to carry my outfit is a bold proposition, but one I’m fully comfortable with given the selection I’ve curated. While a classic pair of black pumps will serve as a base for your collection, statement heels are the ones you’ll love for a season or two, the ones you’ll receive compliment after compliment on, and the ones you’re sure to keep at the forefront of your closet while those pumps take backstage to their bolder counter parts. As I anticipate New York weather finally turning into spring, my shoe options open up and hopefully one (or three) of these pairs will make their way into my rotation for spring and summer in the city, in Montauk, and beyond.
