Proenza Schoulder's whimsical shoe features everything from cut-outs to a tie ankle: definitely a designer shoe that will get you noticed.
These cool gray studded shoes from Jeffrey Campbell will work great now to lighten up black clothes; they'd also work all the way through the fall so that makes them a good investment.
3. Cage Shoes
Hop on one of the biggest new shoe trends: the cage shoe (named because it looks like a birdcage effect.) Boutique 9's version ups the glamour with nailheads and a back-zip closure.
I like all of the texture in this sole and heel on these Naughty Monkey platform sandals: it really adds another dimension to the shoe without excessive embellishment. These cute, affordable shoes come in four color ways.
This straight-from-the-runway look from Nine West makes the cage shoe trend affordable (under $90.) Comes in four different colors.
No need to go with skyscraping heels to get the statment shoe effect: Bernardo's flat metallic sandal has plenty of attitude with a rhinestone-encrusted disc feature.
