No other shoe made as big of a splash as the ankle-strapped sandal this summer, with celebrities and bloggers alike rocking the fierce footwear with everything from down-to-earth denim to the most glamorous of ball gowns. Stuart Weitzman’s Nudist heel became a celebrity in its own right, gracing the heels of even the most style savvy of fashionistas. Chic, versatile and with the perfect amount of sex appeal, this fierce footwear’s time in the spotlight is not yet through. The power of the subdued shoe is already set in stone and with fall and winter just around the corner, sleek, minimalist kicks are guaranteed to remain supreme.

No matter what the season, understated footwear will ever serve as the perfect complement to a variety of incredibly chic ensembles. With the exception of unkempt toenails, it’s pretty hard to screw up this effortlessly stylish shoe. Today’s top super models, style bloggers and celeb starlets alike are obsessed with the silhouette, leaving us searching for more of this exceptionally hot, little shoe.

Versatility is of huge importance when it comes to seasonal dressing, and luckily, the possibilities surrounding the ankle-strapped heel are endless. From edgy to glamorous in a flash, we love pairing these sleek shoes with everything from baggy boyfriend jeans to a sexy bodycon dress. Even a classic button-down blouse and jeans is exponentially more chic when combined with sultry shoes. A pair of black-rimmed glasses, a red lip and a sophisticated updo make this ensemble among the most stylish known to man. Ditch the blouse for a comfy and cozy T-shirt in order to put a casual luxe spin on the piece. A fierce pedi in a striking shade like burgundy or royal blue is bound to make your footwear ten times more fabulous.

Not only are ankle-strap sandals the perfect pairing for casual looks, but the chic factor when paired with lady-like frocks just can’t be denied. We love this sexy footwear paired with A-line skirts and pleated midi skirts for a cool contrast. Even a basic crew neck T-shirt or a solid long-sleeved T-shirt make great pairings for these sweet silhouettes. Statement jewelry like embellished necklaces, statement earrings and cool harness belts can all up the ante on these fabulously femme looks.

Just because the trees are bare doesn’t mean you can’t bare your legs on occasion. Bust out the leather shorts and pair with a variety of chic pieces like a structured blazer, a sheer blouse or a silk camisole for an outfit chic as can be. A luxe gold chain necklace and a swipe of bold lipstick create a stunning ensemble perfectly accented with a pair of ankle-strap heels.
