A Fresh Look at Patent Leather

Patent leather has been around since the late 1700s and it is still stylish, talk about standing the test of time!  While black patent leather pumps are an obvious choice why not mix it up with some color?  If you have been keeping up with the fall/winter trends you know that anything oxblood/burgundy colored is a must have.  L.K. Bennett makes an adorable patent Bordeaux pump with the sweetest bow detail; a great alternative to classic black.

Another way to update your patent shoe wardrobe is to go for a more casual look.  Ivanka Trump makes an extremely versatile and insanely comfortable nude patent flat; an ideal alternative to your everyday shoe.

And if you cannot resist the allure of a timeless black patent leather pump, think outside the box and try a fresh silhouette like this flirty Pura Lopez heel.  Just remember patent leather will always stretch, so a bit of discomfort in the store is perfectly normal.  Happy shopping!
