Go with ankle boots

Ankle boots are back, and you’ll find them everywhere in as many styles and colors you can imagine. Whether you like cowboy-inspired boots, lace-ups or slouchy suede, you’ll be sure to find an ankle boot to suit your style. Ankle boots look fabulous with skinny jeans; their abbreviated shape sets off slim legs perfectly, elongating your legs by showing more of them. Plus, they’re fun, funky and right on trend.

Choose classic tall boots

Knee-high boots are the iconic foil to skinny jeans. Tuck your skinnies into tall boots and you’re instantly stylish, chic and polished. Classic riding boots are especially flattering with skinny jeans, so try an always-fashionable flat-heeled equestrian style to emanate preppy-cool style and take your look up a notch.

As a shoe designer to the Hollywood stars, Salvatore decided to do something different. Incorporating both design and anatomy he created the wedge shoe. Not only did he create a completely new style of shoe, but he developed a completely new heel type: the cork heel. One of the reasons the he chose cork was because of the shortage and rationing of fabrics and materials (leather and cotton) because of the war in Europe.

Platforms are regularly featured on the catwalk at fashion shows, but are now commonly found in everyday life as well. Most college women have at least one pair, and they are popular with professional women as well. To be in style, platforms are almost a requirement.
