Ankle strap shoes were a major trend throughout the fashion week runways this past season and they’re not going anywhere. The ankle strap adds a hint of sex appeal while remaining ladylike and proper. Celebs have been adding on a strap this season and it’s in demand for this summer’s sandals. Check out these styles that can add the perfect flair to any outfit.
Jennifer Aniston and B Brian Atwood Labrea Evening Sandal
Jennifer Aniston rocks the barely-there sandal, another huge trend come the warmer months. While promoting her new fragrance, the addition of an ankle strap makes the shoe look substantial and chic while the minimalistic style keeps things clean and simple. While Brian Atwood is known for more out-of-the-box styles, the brand can easily transition to staple-worthy shoes. The B Brian Atwood Labrea Evening Sandal marries the barely-there style with bold colors and an ankle strap in perfect placement.
Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Spade Vivienne Wedge Sandal
Hollywood’s newest obsession, Jennifer Lawrence, is great at keeping her style laid back and chic, even off the red carpet. These white ankle strap sandals are crisp and clean at the end of a retro-inspired outfit showcased at her appearance on Good Day America. The Kate Spade brand is one that also keeps things crisp and clean while balancing a vintage feel with their shoes. The Vivienne Wedge Sandal, with its braided straps and cork wedge, brings thoughts back to the 1950’s and will add a pin-up feel to an a-line skirt or pair of skinny jeans.
Leighton Meester and Diane Von Furstenberg
At the premiere of That’s My Boy, Gossip Girl starlet Leighton Meester, steps out with thick ankle straps that look more like ankle jewelry than part of a shoe. Bolder straps add a powerful punch of modernity and structural interest to any shoe. Structure is the backbone of any good brand and Diane Von Furstenberg has thrived on that initiative. The intricate and daring Sinead Sandal combines architectural details with ladylike style into one great shoe.
