5 of The Best Statement Shoes

Back to school shoe shopping is a favorite pastime of mine, and I’m sure you can relate. What you wear on your feet can make or break any outfit, whether you're paring it down with neutral flats or adding some punk with chunky platforms. In celebration of girls’ best friends, I’ve handpicked five statement shoes that are must-haves for this school year. There’s a pair for every occasion.

Platform Loafers

Give old school a modern twist by elevating classic loafers, literally. These platforms are surprising and chic, and great for someone who loves taking risks. Wear these with a slouchy black tee tucked into white palazzo pants. You’ll be in the hallway turning heads and feeling ready to take on the day. statement-shoes-article-5

Flats Go Punk

The hardware on these black flats will make a huge statement, regardless of the outfit they’re paired with. These are great for walking around the city, especially for those who want to show off their love of punk style. Juxtapose the grunge shoes with a simple sweetheart dress, or go casual and unexpected with high-waisted shorts and a muscle tee. statement-shoes-article-1

Uncommon Heel

One of the most interesting ways to step up your shoe game is to wear a pair without ordinary heels. This ankle strap pair from UO has a flawless combination of simplicity and oddity. Pair these with skinny jeans and a buttoned-down shirt, or show a bit of quirkiness with a colorful skater skirt. statement-shoes-article-4

Camila Highs

These high-tops from TOMS are simple and suede, a great combination for city-goers. These highs go well with pretty much anything, thanks to their streamlined design.Wear with white jeans and a long gray coat and you’ll show off your chic side. statement-shoes-article-2
