StyleList is pleased to announce our new columnist: the one and only Rachel Zoe! And though she's a woman who needs no introduction, just in case you've been stuck in your wardrobe for the past few years figuring out what to wear, let us fill you in. Zoe styles A-listers for every major Hollywood event. She stars on "The Rachel Zoe Project" on Bravo, sells her own accessories line on QVC and is a StyleList contributor. With no further ado, here's her first one. For more on her latest obsessions in fashion, beauty and lifestyle, sign up for The Zoe Report.
Right now, I have my eye on an ever-growing list of styles, obv, but have narrowed my choices down to five standout, versatile pairs for you to rock in the upcoming season.
Starting with smart lace-up Valin wedges (3) by Sam Edelman: These black booties are the ultimate option to wear from the office to out on the town.
Another killer day-to-night pair is Steven by Steve Madden's Mercyy platform pumps (4). (Note that all nude, pale and white shades are very coveted right now -- and perfect for spring and summer! Find a pair that you love ASAP.)
In terms of surface-level shoes, I am all about Banana Republic's Amalia flats (1) -- the leopard print will immediately and comfortably make any outfit more interesting -- and Topshop's Daryl Grey suede boots(5).
Finally, don't be afraid to pull out the stops with a pair of towering platforms. Dolce Vita shows us how it's done with Bette high-platform sandals (2).
Can you say mah-jor?
