What: A pair of velvet booties in a floral print from shoe designer/genius Nicholas Kirkwood, complete with stacked acrylic-insert heels. Even on sale, these bad boys are outside of our everyday price range, but hey, a gal can dream, right?
Why: As previously noted, we believe every woman needs a pair of colorful boots in her closet, and these fit the bill—and then some. Also, the velvet-acrylic combination is just too perfect to handle.
How: With shoes like these, you don’t need to worry about eye-catching clothes. We’d pair ’em with a flouncy blouse, a pair of black skinnies, and an oversized wrap coat.
