A buckle strategically placed on a boot or a heel adds a certain level of tough yet chic style. Like a well-oiled machine, the perfect placement of a detail like a buckle makes a shoe a true masterpiece. While the buckle is just a small part of the bigger picture, it can complete the puzzle of creating a statement-making look. These celebs all have their own style but each take on the look of a buckled shoe in their own way. Try out a tough look in knee-high boots, a buckle and stud in an artistic style, or an architectural heel.
Kate Beckinsale and Fiorentini and Baker Net Boot
Kate Beckinsale looks natural and comfortable as she rushes through the airport in an asymmetrical jersey dress and knee-high boots. The triple buckles make these moto-inpsired boots look chic and easy to wear, especially when running to catch a plane. The Fiorentini and Baker brand, known for exceptional leather goods, has managed to create the perfect crossover boot. The Net Boot has a rugged yet vintage style that can be easily paired with your favorite skinny jeans or a floral sundress.
Kate Bosworth and Jeffrey Campbell Starburst-2 Ankle Boot
The Chelsea style boot has been hot throughout winter and even into the spring and summer seasons. Kate Bosworth isn’t afraid to take this trend head on with a bold color and even bolder style with triple buckles and an artistic detail of studs splashed across the front. What better brand to mix rocker-chick style with the ease and accessibility of a flat than Jeffrey Campbell? The Starburst-2 Ankle Boot is an edgier cousin to the bootie and should be embraced with cropped denim or a mini skirt.
Jessica Alba and Diane von Furstenberg Sinead Sandal
Style star Jessica Alba wows in a floral frock and architectural heels. The buckled straps criss-cross her feet in a biker-chick inspired look that balances out the flowy and girly style of her dress. While thick-strapped heels may not be everyone’s cup of tea, a geometrically structured shoe is a great addition to a flirty look. Diane von Furstenberg, the timeless womenswear brand that has pretty much written the rulebook on fashion, keeps things modern and sophisticated with the Sinead Sandal. These structurally designed shoes are great for dressing up a pair of jeans or evening dress.
