We’re head over heels for, well, heels this season. And why shouldn’t we be? With all the holiday parties coming up, a girl’s gotta be prepared. Our columnist Lauren agrees and hit the Goodwill circuit in search of something just as cheeky than last week’s pair, but in a completely different (yet still party-perfect) way. The result? This week’s Goodwill Gem: the Peek-a-Boo Pumps.
A pair of pumps will make any girl walk a little taller – but it takes a special pair to unleash a whole new you. These sexy black shoes are in a favorite cold-weather fabric – suede – but the lace-up style and open toe beg for a wink and a nod.
You can show a little skin or a pop of color (cue the red, orange, yellow, blue matte tights!). They’re the perfect pair to rock with your favorite fall outfits and they’re unconventional enough to revamp last year’s party clothes without overhauling your whole wardrobe (and destroying that holiday gift budget).
A pair of heels like these has a subtle style all its own, but these shoes are also unbelievably easy to wear with almost any article of clothing you have in your closet. Though you can definitely feel free to get a little funky as far as the items you choose to accessorize with them, you can also throw on a classic pair of slim trousers or a pencil skirt and strut nearly anywhere with confidence.
Here, I’ve chosen something in the middle – a sweet look that’s a little glammed up (the metallic sheen on the skirt adds a dressier touch).
This outfit’s still appropriate for the in-office holiday bash and maybe a drink or two afterward with that co-worker you secretly fancy. The playful tights emphasize the subtle sexiness of the shoe, but the basic tee and tailored blazer on top keep the outfit looking classy and fit for any occasion.
