The only time I put on anything with a really high heel anymore is when I go on dates. The rest of the time, I crave comfort, and I know you do too, because this is a frequently-requested post. Lucky for us all, low heels are kind of a thing at the moment, and there are many quite suitable options to choose from. Maryam Nasser Zadeh makes tons of splurgy pairs, and I am especially enchanted by this red number.
Platforms aren’t technically low heels, but I’ve included a couple anyway because of their supreme walkability: this pair is pretty classic in a 70s way that I like.
A grey pump is a nice departure from black and a stylish touch this time of year.
And here’s another great pump, currently waitlisted at Everlane, but worth waiting for, to my mind.
I like cropped pants all year round (and have held forth more than once on the appeal of wearing them with boots) but this time of year is when they really make the most sense. I always feel like a crop just makes my whole outfit feel more together and tailored somehow, even if the pants in question are on the casual side. I like pairing them with clogs, of course, for a little height, and even sneakers sometimes, if I’m just kicking around.
Since I’m in a camo mood lately, I had to include these.
And these pants just tickle me, what with all those adorable dots: they’re a good choice if you’d like to try a pair of pants with a print but the prospect also scares you, because the dots are pretty subtle.
These are quite nicely tailored, and I dig the army green.
