Pearls aren’t just for earrings; they also make these velvet slides a showstopper.
They Have Street-Style Gravitas
Rule #1 of bloggers and street-style gals: Always have one standout item. When it’s on your feet, you’ll gain even more cool points.
You Can Make Them Casual
The best way to wear OTT slides? With frayed denim, of course.
Or You Can Wear Them to Work
Finding a demure way to incorporate the trend into your office outfits can be a bit tricky. But not so with embroidered Mary Janes.
They’re Surprisingly Versatile
Need your loafers to be preppy? No problem. Want them to also be romantic? Can do.
You Don’t Have to Go Overboard to Get the Effect
If full embellishment feels a little much, go for just a touch on a nude heel to add some color to your look.
They Could Be the Perfect Wedding Shoe
Pair some stunning gilded heels with your gown and you’ll love your wedding photos even more.
But They Can Also Be Flats
Who says shoes with such intricate details need to be fussy? These flat mules let you rock the trend comfortably.
Or Even Your New Favorite Kicks
You didn’t think we’d leave the comfiest shoe of all off the list? Embroidered sneakers are a must.
They Make Every Outfit Cooler
A classic bootie unexpectedly studded in pearls? Yes and yes.
