This season, you're allowed to put on the prettiest, most outrageously embellished pumps you've got in your shoe arsenal for your daytime ensemble
Move over, loafer pumps, for we have a new contender in the footwear field of choices this season. Turns out that the once-deemed traditional court shoe is now undergoing a total upgrade. Here's the memo: The more embellished the pump is, the better.
AW16 runways had a galore of festive-worthy completely embellished pumps that you daren't wear in broad daylight, for fear of reflecting the sunlight directly into passerbys' eyes. Miu Miu delivered the ultimate pump: Jewel-tone suede (swoon), a bejeweled embellishment on the heel of the shoe, and ultra-sexy stiletto heels that thankfully had a wide base for extra support. Dolce&Gabbana, as always, gave us fairytale footwear picks. Just one look at that silver, everything-encrusted Mary Jane pump and we were sold.
The key to pulling off a crystal/jewel-laden pump for daytime without looking OTT? Pair 'em right by offsetting its brilliance with a simple getup. In other words, don't be sporting embellished shoes along with an equally embellished dress. A walking jewellery display stand is not the look we're going for.
