Shoe Trend: Block Heel Ankle Strap Pumps

At first I was not sure this trend was age appropriate. Then Carol and I got to talking about how to style fall’s hot shoe trend: block heel ankle strap pumps and I was won over. They are a more sophisticated Mary Jane style and I particularly love the ones with multi straps. You can go a little crazy with the pattern since baroque and florals are so in this season but that could look a little too trendy if you are over 40 and don’t know how to pull the look off properly (don’t go there unless you really know what you are doing or are a fashion risk taker). A safer bet is a black suede, patent or velvet block heel ankle strap pump.

How to you style them? Well, Carol and I discussed the patent version looks fantastic with skirts and black opaque tights. Or you could wear a suede pair with a cropped pant or jean. Wear these shoes as you would an ankle boot. The beauty of this shoe is that any heel height works. So if you are like me and need a lower block heel, you can pound the city streets in style and comfort!

Take a peak at some of the block heel ankle strap pumps I located at virtually every price point and heel height.
