Especially in the warmer months, any excuse to air out your toes is a good one and what better way to change things up from the basic sandal than a peep toe show? A peep toe harkens back to a classic style of the 1940’s and 50’s pinups that dominated the fashion scene. From booties to sling backs to perfect pumps, a little hole can change the whole shape and style of a shoe. These celebs may not be taking inspiration from days gone by, but their modern takes should be inspiration for your next shoe move.
Salma Hayek and Badgley Mischka Stella Evening Pump
Latina bombshell Salma Hayek shows off her curves in a figure-hugging dress and lattice detailed peep toe pumps. Her signature style has all the flair you would expect from this spicy starlet. A black peep toe pump is a perfect way to make an outfit classy and sophisticated with a hint of sex appeal. Badgley Mischka, red carpet brand of many, have built their name on keeping a classic style but accessible details on a shoe that seem high-fashion yet affordable. The Stella Evening Pump is the quintessential black peep toe pump but with embroidered sequins and a lace overlay that are modern, glamorous and ladylike.
Malin Ackerman and Kate Spade Sarah Evening Pump
Malin Akerman is a woman who knows what she likes in terms of fashion. A pair of silver sling backs is the best evening shoe to own because of the versatility of a metallic and the great shape of a sling back peep toe. The vintage style of the shoe is timeless and easy to wear. A brand that can pull off a vintage inspired evening shoe needs to have built itself on classic style and Kate Spade is that brand. The Sarah Evening Pump is a balanced mix of vintage styling and modern feel with a satin silver finish and a bow detail, with a simple, mid-sized heel.
Ashley Olsen and B Brian Atwood Liese Bootie
The limits of fashion are pretty much non-existent and a woman like Ashley Olsen knows just the right buttons to push. Her successful brand, Elizabeth and James, bring her and her sister into the real limelight of the fashion industry outside of their daring looks and double-take beauty. B Brian Atwood may have equalized the Olsen twins’ unique style into a bold architectural shoe. A bootie-pump hybrid, the Liese Bootie is in a silver lurex material that looks just a step below a disco ball, but in the best way possible. While these may not be everyone’s cup of tea, they are for the lionhearted and most sartorially fluid.
