It may be my Dutch ancestry, but I’ve fallen head over high heels for the latest take on wooden heels. They’re a more solid than stilettos, more architectural than wedges, and more glamourous than the clunky heels of the ’70s. They can polish off a ladylike look with a skirt or dress, or jazz up skinny jeans and a ruffled top. I asked for the Kenneth Cole Reaction version (left) for Christmas. I love the gray and brown combo. You don’t see that often, and its easy to pair with either color. I also like Anthrolopologie’s Louisa Booties and For Beatrice Slingbacks (below). You don’t need a tulip garden to enjoy these fresh picks!
