The Nude Ankle Strap Pump
A contemporary (and much more comfortable) twist on the classic nude stiletto is the ultra-flattering ankle strap pump that elongates legs and goes with everything. Another plus? The thick heel makes for happy feet after long work days, and you can wear this style year round. These scalloped beauties by Chloé (pictured above) are a bit of a splurge, but an investment you're sure to wear year after year. If you're more of a budget fashionista, these dupes from Necessary Clothing are just $21.99!
The Pom-Pom Gladiator
The Grecian pom-pom sandal seemed to be everywhere this summer, from bloggers to runways and college campuses alike. But because of the color range on these fabulously funky flats, they're the perfect transition sandal for cooler breezes. Instead of a summery dress, pair these sandals with an all-black ensemble for a pop of color as the leaves start to change. Designer styles like this one from Net-a-Porter are handmade in Greece, and wind high up your calf with geometric embroidered canvas straps. However, retailers like Missguided offer a basic pom pom gladiator for under $45.
The Gold-Dipped Bootie
We're a big fan of chic gold hardware and chunky heels for comfortable walking. But really, we ’ll just take a metallic accent wherever we can get one! These gold-dipped ankle booties are an unexpected twist on a fall staple. To completely indulge yourself in this trend, Jeffery Campbell (pictured above) crafted a modern caged-metal heel on a smooth leather 'Chelsea' bootie for Nordstrom; Necessary Clothing offers a dupe for $39.99.
The Scented Jelly Flats
Yep, you read that right. These candy-scented flats by Melissa Footwear were made for adults, and smell like fruity candy! Splurgers will love the Jason Wu for Melissa collection. Another plus? They're super comfortable. For savers, the classic gold heart flats retail for under $50 at Nordstrom Rack. Half sizes are unavailable; order next size up.
