It happens every year: As things heat up, skin peeks out! It’s a cornerstone of summer fashion. This year, however, the trend has gone even further! We’ve all heard of the peep toe, but the hottest new shoe of summer 2013? Arguably, one with an exposed heel.
Rocking an exposed heel is an easy way to wear cool-weather faves like booties with a warm-weather twist. Summer staple! The resulting look could be described as part sandal, part boot, part clog. Expect to see a lot of peep show action this summer–exposed heels look adorable when teamed with feminine sundresses, mid-length skirts, and even the classic shorts and tee! These are the ideal shoe for adding a bit of edgy dichotomy to an otherwise feminine look, or for providing the perfect slightly-bohemian compliment to a more free-spirited, floaty outfit.
If you’re into the exposed heel, here are a few real-life, buyable options. Satisfy those shoe cravings!
What’s your take on the exposed heel? Is this a style you’d rock? What are your favorite shoes for summer?
