This particular style of shoe, that has been simply been referred to as “clear heels” or “plexi heels” first debuted on the Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2015 runway. However, the style is now becoming more prominent. They will most likely fall under one of the instances where you either hate them or love them. Please allow me to encourage you to love perspex heels! They are a fun take on the classic heel that could otherwise be seen as boring depending on the make and model. This cutting edge footwear is a must-have for summer, and will definitely be staple piece for the fall and winter seasons to come. They are offered in a variety of styles, colors, and textures from suede thigh-highs to patent leather ankle boots in cute hues like pastel pink and even dark wash denim.
This suede thigh-high is a perfect shoe that can transition smoothly from fall to winter. With this neutral color, you can add almost any color from oxblood to mauve to make these beauties pop.
Style Inspiration: Rihanna at Paris Fashion Week
Most normal, 9-5 girls won’t be able to attend Paris Fashion Week or would be draped in Dior from head-to-toe like Rihanna. However, you can use the fashion maven herself as an example when styling your thigh-high perspex heels. Wear a TopShop Contrast Panel Textured Duster Coat in Dusty Pink over a Sanna Sweat Dress in Ivory. Accessorize with Faux Pearl Front/Back Earrings, Faux Pearl Choker Necklace, and a Vintage Styler Blush Box Clutch Bag. In this outfit, you have practical pieces like a comfy sweater dress and thick heel, which means you are ready for almost anything such as work, a fun girls night out, or date night with your significant other.
These open-toe ankle boots are the perfect shoes for Summer! The white trimming gives the shoe a dramatic effect that is sure to turn heads. You can wear a simple, all white outfit that consists of core pieces like the Billie Demi-Boot Jean or dress up and pair the boots with the Cutwork Flower Lace A-Line Skirt.
Style Inspiration: Beyonce leaving Wimbledon Finals
Beyonce was seen in a somewhat-kinda-not really affordable dress that can actually be purchased at Shopbop and ASOS for $395! Although the perspex heels worn with her dress are black, the white ones will be just as breathtaking. It’ll be fun to add a pop of color so try the Rooney Tassel Drop Earrings in Yellow, wear BP Stacking Rings in Silver, and you are ready to attend day parties, art galas, and if you can afford to, be like Beyonce and go to Wimbledon!
Style Idea 1:
Another option for the Star Perspex Heel Ankle Boots is a more dressed down, but still very cute look! A Guns N’ Rose Tie-Dye Illusion Tour Tee and Super High-Rise Cheeky Denim Shorts are ideal for a lit weekend. Accessorize with a Thin Velvet Choker in White, Sparkly Gem Studs, Michael Kors Acetate Bracelet, and Mixed Chevron Rings. You are now ready for kickbacks and bar hopping. Let Rihanna’s Pose be your theme song while wearing this look.
Style Idea 2:
Every woman should own a pastel pink shoe, and this ankle boot is the perfect start. It is needless to say this gorgeous hue compliments the perspex heel perfectly. Since the color speaks for itself, keep the rest of your look simple yet detailed by wearing the Cold Shoulder Denim Dress With Extreme Frayed Edges. To complete the outfit, accessorize with Medium Hoop Earrings, Classic Pave Link Bracelet, and BP Stacking Rings in Gold. In this outfit, you can hang out downtown in your city and check out museums or breweries.
This particular shoe goes against the grain by adding an eye-catching color to the perspex heel. When onlookers take a closer look at these boots on your feet, their jaws will hit the ground when they realize the body of this shoe is made of dark wash denim! It goes without saying the Maya High Heeled Ankle Boots are not for the fainthearted, and the outfit that compliments them should not be either. Have fun in this look by wearing a Reclaimed Vintage Oversized T-Shirt Dress in Tie-Dye and a Navy Wide Velvet Choker. Finish the look by adding Factory Fireball Stud Earrings and BP Stacking Rings in Gold.
In order to grow, you have to stay out of your comfort zone! This saying usually applies to career choices, but it can apply to ones style too. Learn to take chances, and it will pay off in the long run.
