What I Love: Ankle-Strap Flats

Ankle straps aren’t just for leggy ladies like Alexa Chung,  Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss. In fact, petite beauties like Emmy Rossum and Jessica Alba are already rocking the trend. The trick to mastering the ankle-strap flat is just a matter of styling it right.

Start by nailing two trends with one shoe by investing in a pointy-toed ankle-strap flat in one of footwear’s biggest spring 2015 colors, navy blue. The beauty of flats is that they can make shorter hemlines seem totally casual, even in the daytime. A colorblock dress with pops of blue to match the shoe keeps legs looking long and is also a great option for a look that can transition from afternoon to evening.
Contrast the laidback cut of the dress by layering gold necklaces on top of each other. Add a dose of retro glam with a pair of earrings in navy blue. Top off the ensemble with one of the hottest spring 2015 handbag trends, the clutch. This Marie Turnor clutch in turquoise is a definite statement piece.
