Cut It Out
Spring’s of-the-moment shoe detailing is a cut above the rest.
WHETHER CRAFTED IN ELABORATE DESIGNS (it was butterflies at Anna Sui) or designed with anatomy in mind (Richard Chai’s mini gladiators were almost skeletal in nature), strategic cutouts swept the runways for spring. And, although some variations of the look read much more couture, there are plenty of milder versions that will undoubtedly make the cut for everyday wear. Keeping the pattern modest while exploring color trends—band-aid beige (a consistently favored hue among the style set) and lemony citron (a major player at Louis Vuitton last spring) are especially appealing and ensure that your new shoe selection will always have you putting your best foot forward.
