chunky heels

TWELFTH AVENUEI don’t know if it’s the influence of all of the Beverly Hills 90210 I’ve been watching (original, not crappy new version – Dylan + Kelly 4eva) or my strong nostalgia for the ’90s in general, but I have fallen head-over-heels in love (pun intended) with chunky high-heeled sandals. (Clockwise from top left: Sam Edelman, Vince, BCBGMaxazria, and Rag & Bone.)

I think what I love most about this style of shoe is (surprise!) its versatility. I can easily see these worn with a bodycon mini dress, super skinny jeans and a slouchy tee, or cuffed boyfriend jeans and a graphic muscle tank. Price per wear on any one of these babies is small, y’all. And for those of you who are afraid of heights, this mini chunk sandal by Loeffler Randall is a great option. Come onnnnn Shopbop sale!
