May I just say that Miu Miu has been killing it lately when it comes to shoes? Here is yet another pair that nails it, particularly if you’re talking unique design and multi-purpose wear. This peep-toe bootie takes all of the prim delicacy out of the strappy shoe and puts intricately layered straps in an entirely new context. One that works for casual day-clothes from skinny jeans and T-shirts to fuzzy sweaters and tights. This kind of cool versatility makes for non-stop, year-round wear.
Off-tone topstitching over washed napa leather infuses a semi-relaxed effect, along with the knotted zipper-pull at the heel. But in gold, the zipper adds a mere touch of the flamboyant, just enough to take these lattice booties onto dance-party turf. A look like this – no trends, just standby details you won’t ever tire of – is proven to last. Wear it and see how many seasons this takes you through. At Bergdorf Goodman for $750.
Pair with: Inject more geometry into these layers of crisscrossing straps. Alexander Wang knows how to do silk crepe de chine tanks with just the right amount of drape. The latest is a sporty, color-block blend of black, yellow, taupe with a gray jersey racer-back. On Net-a-Porter for $375.
