We asked: Would you wear Strappy Cage Heels?
You said: No to Strappy Cage Heels, with a 56% to 44% vote.
Style tip? Strappy Cage Heels first got their start on Yves Saint Laurent’s Fall 2008 runway in ankle boot form, and they’ve since made their way from the runway to real women’s closets, albeit in less extreme forms. But how do you wear this dramatic, almost architectural shoe? Cage heels are best worn with simple, solid colored outfits - when you wear cage heels, the look is all about the shoes. Try cage heels with a black pencil skirt and blazer combo for a look that’s dramatic but still accessible.
Next question: Ponchos had their turn in the style spotlight a few years back, and now they’re back for Fall 2009. But what do you think? Tell us, would you wear a Poncho? Cast your vote on the sidebar!
