Splurge or Snag: Graduation Shoes

 As a shoe lover, I felt the need to dedicate an entire post to graduation shoes. Since you’ll be wearing your cap and gown for the ceremony, your shoes are where you can really show off your style and personality! I’m a high heel kind of girl (I’m 5′ 00″, so I don’t have much of a choice), so I put together a splurge or snag list of a few of my favorite formal stilettos:

SOPHISTICATED SHOW STOPPERS: 

Jimmy-choo-splurge-snag

SPLURGE: Jimmy Choo | SNAG: Ivanka Trump

Honestly, nothing compares to these Jimmy Choos… They’re definitely an over-the-top shoe, but paired with a simple yet elegant dress, they’d be a show stopper.

STRAPPY SKYSCRAPERS: 

Black-strappy-nordstrom

 

SPLURGE: Miu Miu | SNAG: Michael Kors

Out of these two, I actually prefer to snag! I love the more open front and the leaf-like cutouts.

POP OF COLOR PUMP:

Pop-of-color-pump

SPLURGE: Manolo Blahnik |SNAG: Jessica Simpson

If your graduation gown is a neutral color, either of these shoes would pair perfectly. After all, it’s fun to add a little spice to the mix.

Of course before you get your heart set on the perfect grad shoes, make sure you can walk in them comfortably—you do not want to trip across the stage!

XOXO,
Alyssa
