Goodwill Gems: A (New) Classic Look of Contrasts

Fall is all about impact. The fiery color of leaves contrast sharply with the crisp chill in the air, and though there’s no way we can compete with nature, we can do our best to mirror this beautiful season and represent it well in our autumn ensembles.

But sometimes, it is the simplest, subtlest pieces that somehow manage to add serious impacts to our everyday looks. These darling little sling-back heels, fashioned out of buttery soft black leather, are just one of those pieces.

Anything but basic, these beautiful black heeled shoes have style and serious sex appeal, but in a way that still manages to appear lovely and ladylike, not loud.

The curving pieces of leather, slit right up the top of the shoe, and the seductive peep toe are sexy without being too gaudy or outrageous, making these cute kickers perfect for a day at the office or a glamorous night out with your girls. Equally adorable with slightly transparent stockings and a pencil skirt or with jeans, a sparkling cami and a tailored blazer, these pretty peep-toes are the perfect piece for the last warm days of fall.

To create a really balanced look that’s neither prissy nor too outrageous for everyday wear, throw on a pair of adorably classic, girly heels like these with pieces in classic cuts and fabrics, with just a bit of edgy detail to them.

Pair a bold, colorful look with something polished and ladylike.

You can never go wrong with a look composed of classic combinations and contrasting pieces, like a fully black-and-white ensemble. But to punch things up a bit for fall, I’ve swapped out the soft, cool white for a warmer red on top.

The loose, silky blouse still looks professional and ladylike, but the zippers add a bit of an edge, as do the form-fitting black velvet pants on the bottom, and these pieces set just the right mood for a look that’s topped off with my fabulous new heels.

If you’re not into the tight trousers, try pairing a nice blouse and classic wool skirt with a more modern piece, like a leather jacket, and some blingy jewelry.
