One Shoe, Five Ways: How To Wear Spring’s Printed Heels

Having a case of serious wardrobe fatigue? A printed pump will refresh your closet for spring and instantly add character to any outfit. A number of designers embraced the message this season, from geometric prints on cork to spotted ponyhair.

Below, see five ways to style spring’s best printed heels.

Make A Statement
Liudmila’s printed mule style with ankle-strapping has strong shape — so let it do the talking. We can see it styled for evening with a black dress and metallic accessories.

Go For A Stroll
A day in the park calls for a cutesy look. Pair Tory Burch’s plant-print platform with a gingham dress, neutral leather bag and earthy jewelry.

Have An Edge
Not all prints are pretty. Go for hard-rock edge via Tom Ford’s spotted ponyhair pump. A leather jacket, shaped skirt and colorful bag add extra attitude.
