Take one glance at my closet, and you’ll see my love for shoes is abundant to say the least. I don’t like to play favorites, but there’s really nothing like packing away your snow boots and pulling out strappy sandals, feathered heels, and trendy wedges. No offense to black boots everywhere, but a purple heel adorned with feathers has more of the It factor I’m looking for when it comes to completing a look. On-trend styles like the ones you’ll find below can completely transform a basic outfit in seconds.
I was on the hunt for shoe styles that would do just that, so I tapped Lya Mariella to give me her lineup of stylish footwear selects from Nine West’s latest arrivals. One scroll through her Instagram and it’s clear she knows a thing or two about creating looks that are anything but basic. Many of her posts have made it to my ‘Fit Ideas Saved folder, so I knew she’d be the right gal to give us a little inspiration for the season ahead. Let me tell you she didn’t come to play. The three looks she created will take anyone from the office to happy hour and everywhere in between. The true stars of the show, of course, are the shoes she selected, so keep scrolling to shop her must-haves plus a few extras that have the main-character energy I’m looking for.
