Shoe Love: Ankle Strap Heels


We're seeing this season's hautest heels everywhere, having begun as a hit on the Milan spring runways of Bottega Veneta, Giorgio Armani and Roberto Cavalli, and now carrying celebs down the red carpet and our favorite bloggers in their photos. Although ankle strap footwear comes in a variety of fashions, from chunky pumps to pointy toe kitten heels, our favorite style for spring features a thick single strap over open toes. These chic lifts are feminine and sexy, and paired with the perfect pedicure and suntanned legs (a thin fastener around your ankle helps elongate them!) don't be surprised when you're turning heads.
