Think you know all about TOMS, the charitable line of slip-on shoes that gives a pair away to a child in need for every pair purchased? I thought I did too, until I ran into TOMS at Neiman Marcus. What a difference a store makes.
I seemed to have missed the announcement this past August that TOMS would be coming out with a new luxury line, to be sold exclusively at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and American Rag. Or perhaps I knowingly overlooked the announcement, thinking that TOMS, while a super fabulous charity, is not right for my personal style. That is no longer the case.
The upscale, but not horribly high priced, TOMS+ line is chock full of stunning slip-ons crafted from leather and other gorgeous materials. I had a really hard time narrowing down the super fashionable choices to a number that would comfortably fit in a single blog post. But, narrow I did. Check out my favorite finds from the TOMS+ line…
I think this snake-patterned leather version is my favorite. This would be a great option for pairing with slim black pants for a more casual, but still put-together look.

The metallic boucle version is so unique. I haven’t seen any other shoe quite like this. This would be a fun option for a party at home, or for wearing with shorts and sweaters during the first few weeks of spring.

A close runner up in the personal favorites department, this perforated black leather version looks vaguely Saint Laurent to me. This is the perfect flat for wearing with your conceptual pieces or downtown favorites.

While this herringbone/ sequin combo is a little crazy, it’s still super stylish. I can see this with boyfriend jeans and a layered sweater and tee shirt combo.

Grosgrain is one of those materials that can vibe dressy or preppy, depending on how you pair it. That makes these slip-ons one of the most versatile options of the upscale TOMS line.

BONUS: If you love the grosgrain look, but your personal style vibes a little more edgy, you can also get the grosgrain version with a cool metallic skull embroidered on the vamp.
