My Blackberry is flooded with so many email messages from stores that I usually mass delete them. But when “Trend Alert: Neutrals” appeared in the subject line dozens of times I figured I better check out what all the hype is about.
And of course I fell in love…as always. There really is something so elegant and timeless about a white cardigan or a pair of khaki cargo shorts.
My own style, however, is a little more edgy and my closet is filled with tons of printed dresses and patterned tanks. But just because I love me some major color when it comes to my wardrobe doesn’t mean that there’s no room to employ this totally-fab neutral trend.
Which is where Steve Madden’s Toppazz Heel comes in.
It’s suede texture and ruffle are adorably sweet, while the 4-inch heel gives it that extra kick of edge to keep the heel from feeling too demure.
I can see them paired with a flowy A-line skirt for a sweetly-sexy, feminine ensemble, but I can also see them working just as well with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and a leather jacket for a night out.
And this whole neutral thing is totally working for me. Unlike some heels I have, which sit in the back of my closet waiting for a dress that happens to match them, these can be worn with virtually anything. From a printed top to a candy-colored spring sweater, the shoes will never clash, meaning they will be worn on a regular basis.
And that’s all the justification I need to whip out my credit card.
