Strappy shoes have made it from the runway onto our feet for many reasons. They are versatile and work well with many looks. They can be elegant or very sexy. Depending on the designer and their intent, strappy shoes exude personality.

It is up to us to wear them with the right outfit and to find a suitable pair for our feet. Comfort is key because you never want to wobble around in any pair of alluring strappy sandals.

First up is a blush colored strappy shoe that doesn’t just cover your foot with elegance, but works its way up your ankles to intensify your sexiness. This is the ultimate flattering shoe that will make everyone envy your fashion sense. Wear them with a dress and make sure this stunning strappy shoe gets the spotlight it deserves.

The strappy ‘Besso’ Jimmy Choo sandal is to die for. The thicker straps and the gold metal accent give this sassy shoe an edgy vixen look. I love this shoe because it’s easy to match with many outfits and it is bold enough to prevent you from having to over accessorize.

Want to keep up with the trend but can’t afford to splurge right now? Then check out Aldo’s black thick-strapped sandal. They are a knockout. The quality may prevent this shoe from lasting forever, but it will complete your little black dress perfectly!

When I feature heels, I also like to showcase an alternative flat that fits the criteria. The Sam Edelman sparkly sandal is stunning. I didn’t know a sandal could be as stunning as heels, but this fierce sandal stands out. Plus these are comfortable and perfect for those all day outings when you want to look adorable doing the simple things.
