Actually, it’s both! No doubt this is one tricky, action-packed shoe. But done right – and I know you could do it justice – this pump owns that crazy-covetable, amazingly spectacular look that reveals to all that you you’ve got “It” with a capital I.
And “It” requires that you push the envelope a bit. Think outside the shoe, if you will. Attempting to match these highly textural shades of raspberry, turquoise, and red will result in a total clown makeover, while wearing all-black unveils nothing but a depressing lack of creativity. Just as these B Brian Atwood heels strike that fine balance between the zany and genius, you need to walk the line. Go for an out-of-this-world colorful top and something nice ‘n’ neutral on the bottom. A combo like that will pull everything together and give enough visual space between your two opposing focal points. Just a splash of one (or two) of these hues is all you need, and a little bit of natural leopard would be amaze. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $350.
Pair with: Play around with Charlotte Olympia’s Pandora Classic Perspex clutch. With a leopard-print pouch, among black and gold options, you can go as bold as your mood takes you. On Net-a-Porter for $845.
