SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Marco De Vincenzo

Marco De Vincenzo, ex-Fendi fashion designer, first caught the attention of Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani at a show for his namesake label in 2009.  His collections have been delightfully unpredictable from the usual Italian designers, instead opting for classic silhouettes with unexpected materials and construction (W Magazine says it best: think Judy Jetson goes to finishing school).  

Check out these truly eye-catching heels below that combine futuristic and ladylike elements in a beautiful way.  Complete the look with cropped, flared culottes and a structured, high-neck blouse.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana are known for having delicate & intricate designs, of which the details become the most important parts.  These embellished sandals, complete with jewel-tone beads, yellow bananas, and forest green pompoms clearly represent their new jungle theme through each of the detailed elements, while the raffia-style heel and clasp adds a natural final touch.  They also have a similar pair in red and black.  Match them with a wicker bag, like this one by D&G here, and with a flowy, white sundress for the perfect summer look.

The pantsuit has come a long ways since the 1980’s.  It’s reinvention is both powerful and sexy, with slim cuts, cropped pants, and even worn with lingerie (or, for the more daring crowd, nothing) underneath.  For inspiration, look to celebrities and street style stars who are wearing it in different and new, fashion-forward ways.  Try it in a bold color, like Aida Domenech, above, with sneakers or oxfords, or in a sleeveless style.  The options are endless.

Take some inspirational cues from the 10 outfit ideas below to see how you can style the power pant suit into your wardrobe.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Valentino

As we welcome in warmer weather in the northern hemisphere, we also trade in our parkas for bikinis and our winter boots for strappy sandals.  Check out this pair of Valentino Butterfly Lucite-Heel sandals.  The 4-inch block heel is on trend for the summer, and the whimsical heel is stunning and totally unique.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: DSquared2

DSquared2‘s shoe game has gotten so serious.  They have been creatively killing it, from high-heeled ice-skates, to vertebrae heels, to brass knuckles, and beyond.  Their latest creation brings me back to the days where tying shoelaces was a feat in itself, but luckily, there were those convenient no-tie, curly Q shoelaces to wear on your sneaks.  These black sandals are tied up with multi-colored ropes that may conjure up some nostalgia from your childhood, too.

Wear them with an athleisure-inspired outfit, such as a black racerback dress or a pair of sporty culottes and a red or lime green tank to balance it out.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Giannico

Giannico came onto my radar this past year after coming across a pair of Andy Warhol banana heels (there’s also a Picasso-inspired pair that’s to-die-for).  With whimsical, fun-loving designs, styles, and lots of bright colors (for my inner 5-year old), I’m completely smitten with the designer, Nicolò Beretta’s designs.

My latest loves are these yellow, blue and white mules that are simply perfect for Spring.

Pair them with a midi skirt for a brunch date, or with a pair of white culottes to accentuate the bright pop of these mules.
