Some fashion items have remained just as stylish as they were when first released in their heyday decades ago. Case in point: everything '90s, flares, cashmere cardigans, silk scarves, hoodies, trench coats—the list goes on. Also on that lineup are strappy heeled sandals, which are perennially cool and championed by grandmas and the coolest new influencers alike. To be clear I'm not talking about sky-high stiletto sandals—I'm talking about those featuring a lower block heel or even a slender kitten heel. They're shoes that you can walk in comfortably without worrying about twisting an ankle and they pair just as well with denim and tees as they do with pantsuits or printed mini dresses.
Lately, such shoes in vibrant neons or soft pastels have been saturating my Instagram feed, indicating fashion's overwhelming movement towards all things colorful and bold. They're an extremely easy way to infuse an outfit with color or with a subtle touch of animal print, if that's more your style, and they'll make you feel a little fancy while they do it.

On second thought, maybe check your mom's closet first — if she's one to hold onto things, she just might have a super rad pair or two that are still kicking.
