INTER-Picks: Nude Pumps
Published May 13, 2010
Right now I am in the process of putting my black heels in storage and opting instead for a lighter look. I love a nude pump because it creates the optical illusion that your legs are a few inches longer, and because the neutral color goes with just about everything. When it comes to feet, there are all kinds of nudity this season, and the next. For instance, many designers have come out with a square heel for fall. Miu Miu ($565) has a great option for a thicker heel that can be worn day to evening. The swallow mary-jane print design ($570) is a light approach to a chunkier heel. If you’re committed to thin, try Aldo‘s ($75) Moos pump in patent leather. And if you are interested in something to pair with your bare-it-all dress this summer then the Aldo ($90) pump is the perfect platform. The rounded lines of this heel give it a soft, playful feel and the bone color goes with everything. Cork is porous like flesh, which Christian Louboutin’s ($755)cork platform sling-back reminds you of. It’s light-weight, and easy to carry everywhere; plus it may just be your green alternative. For a newly revived kitten heel, Christian Louboutin’s ($875) mesh studded peep-toe has an elegant silhouette with a spiky edge.
