Jeffrey Campbell revolutionized the heel with his Lita Platform Boot. The shoe, which typically runs about $160-$170, depending on the style, includes a five inch heel and two inch sole, and endows any outfit with an effortlessly cool vibe. Budding fashionistas on lookbook.nu receive hundreds, if not thousands of hypes for those looks, incorporating the Lita Platform, and celebrities, including Kendall Jenner and Demi Lovato, regularly sport these shoes.
Cheap Trick: Try on the Lita Platform, for sizing purposes. Then, browse the internet for reduced prices on sites including ebay and nastygal. LF is currently having their annual 60% off sale, and all Lita platforms are flying out the door.
Sam Edelman designs a variety of shoes, from simple one toned sandals to studded heels and shimmery oxfords. My personal favorite is the Adena studded flat, pictured here. The shoe runs about $150, and adds spunk to any outfit without being overly obnoxious.
Cheap Trick: Wait for Bloomingdales's private sale, and receive $25 off of every $100 you spend, plus a $15 Bloomingdales card per $100 spent. This reduces the price of the shoe to $125 and gives you some bloomies bucks for your wallet.
Doc Martens specializes in combat boots, which, styled appropriately, bring an edgy grunge vibe to any outfit. Pair these boots with high waist denim shorts or skirts, leggings, or skinny jeans. Retail value: $115
Cheap Trick: 6pm.com, ebay, and heelandshoes.com all sell the boots at a reduced price. Do not buy these full priced!!! They are on sale all over the web!
