Camilla Skovgaard Prey Stiletto Sandal
In a world where classic pointy toe heels and versatile platform pumps are hailed as investment-worthy, a truly stand-out sandal doesn’t get nearly enough credit for being a real must have. If you don’t yet have a crazy chic pair of black sandals in your shoe closet, I’d seriously consider splurging on these Camilla Skovgaard Prey Sandals.

The Details

These Prey stiletto sandals are crafted from calf leather, with an open toe and a dramatic ankle shaft that comes to a point in the front. The back features a black elastic strap to secure your foot. The shoe sits on a 5-inch heel with a very slight platform. As you can see, these shoes are capable of making an entrance.

How to Wear Them

As I mentioned, I think a pair of interesting black leather sandals are a key part of any shoe wardrobe. By adding these sandals to any little black dress – even the most work-appropriate sheath dress – you’ll instantly have a frock worthy of a night out. These sandals are also ideal for wearing with more architectural dresses from labels like Helmut Lang and Roland Mouret. You know, those dresses that make your standard-issue Jimmy Choos look a little underwhelming.

But, like any Camilla Skovgaard shoe, these sandals can go way beyond playing dress up. They can make simple skinny jeans and a vintage white tee instantly edgy. Or try them on with slouchy shorts and blazer over tank top for a polished summer look.

So, while these fabulous shoes are a little out there, they are really capable of working with many things already in your closet and turning basic outfits into super fashion-forward looks. Definitely worth the splurge.
