Everyone should have a pair of neutral, solid-heeled day shoes in their personal collection. In fact, I keep a pair in my car at all times.
Are they exciting when compared to a pair of $900 fuchsia silk shoes bejeweled with hand-faceted crystals? Not, really, no, but they’re dead handy to have around and rate a lot higher in the utility department. They’re statement-y enough –it’s the slight banana heel that does it– to wear with boyfriend jeans for that louche Parisienne look, but they’re also classic enough to wear with pretty much every day dress in your closet.
