When it comes to closet staples, a pair of nude heels ranks right up there with the striped tee and the little black dress. Not only do nude heels work for all seasons, but they’re also ultra-flattering (they make legs look extra long!) and they also go with virtually every single outfit. Bottom line: these shoes are a wardrobe workhorse!
While they’re definitely a shoe that works year-round (I bought these pumps from Nordstrom last December and I’m wearing them just as often now as I did then), I find that right about now through August is when they get the most wear. This is especially true for my nude Loeffler Randall lace-ups. I wear these heels with everything. From basic blue jeans to black-tie gowns, they complement just about any look. They also serve as a quick fix when I want to dress up something casual (think: these jeans + this tee). The outfit opportunities are endless! This fact alone is what makes them both a great option for traveling (versatility is key when packing), but the perfect party heel, too. With so many weddings on the calendar over the next few months, having a foolproof shoe that I can reach for over and over again comes in quite handy. I can’t even tell you the number of weddings (and dance floors) these LR heels have seen. It’s a lot. And there’s only more to come. I have two weddings next month (wearing this pink dress to the first one) and there’s a good chance I’ll be wearing these heels at both of them. ‘Tis the season.
Need some new nude heels in your life? I did a bit of perusal on one of my shoe go-to’s: Nordstrom. They have lots of good options that are worth a look. The Loeffler Randall lace-ups are hard to beat, but I also love, love, love the “Clarita” sandal from Alexandre Birman. So good! For something on the budget-friendly side, check out these or these.
