Sophia Webster Jumbo Lilico Spring Sandals

Sophia Webster Jumbo Lilico sandal | 4″ / 100mm heel | available in black patent leather at Neiman Marcus & Saks Fifth Avenue, in mirrored silver leather at Matches Fashion & Farfetch plus in several styles at Sophia Webster.

We love these Spring 18′ Jumbo Lilico sandals from one of our favorite designers Sophia Webster. They are decorated with oversized vinyl flowers echoing Webster’s intricate aesthetic. These sandals feature a patent leather t-strap with an adjustable ankle-strap and stiletto 100mm heel. To make these sandals stand out even more pair them with solid colored flirty spring dresses from The Row, Staud and Tibi.

Charlotte Olympia Salsa Sandal Suede

Charlotte Olympia Salsa sandal | 4.5″/ 110mm heel | available in black suede at Matches & Shopbop and in blush at Net-A-Porter & Charlotte Olympia.

Unleash your inner Spanish diva and get to dancing with these fabulous Salsa sandals. This sandal features soft suede embellished with ostrich feathers on the toe strap, plus an alluring ankle tie. The ostrich feathers overtake this ordinary sandal and transforms it into a flirty sexy stiletto heel. Expand the ankle tie further up the calf or bunched around the ankle as shown. This sandals would pair best with playful prints, bright hues and satin blouses. We would choose looks from Missoni, Khaite and Equipment.

Christian Louboutin Kaleikita spiked sandals | 100mm/4″ heel | shop at Bergdorf Goodman.

We always look forward to Christian Louboutin’s spring collections – especially in a market stocked with enough staple pumps. They’re pure eye candy, kooky and continuously fun.

These Kaleikita sandals are no exception. They come with all the bells and whistles featuring heavy embellishment like baubles, spikes and studs. The color combo also hits the mark and we love varying geometric cut straps. Louboutin also added a magenta textured leather covered heel and crackled bronze leather laces.

We equally love the black suede & leather version (pictured below) combining gold & silver hardware.
