If you’re looking to update your shoe wardrobe this semester, look no further. While your black stilettos will always be a staple in your closet, think of adding a few more eccentric and wild pairs to your collection when you dress to impress on the weekends. Check out these five lust-worthy pairs of shoes that will take you from the campus catwalk to dinner with that guy from your sociology class.



  1. Jessica Simpson “Dany” $48.99
    These chunky wooden heels may look a little scary to teeter on, but the huge platform will actually make these feel like they’re 3 inches. They would be perfect for spring break paired with a flouncy sundress and oversized shades. Neutrals not your thing? Besides also coming in a taupe snakeskin and black, they also have a purple velvet version and silver metallic ones.

  2. Matiko, “Halle Black Suede Gold Studded Cuff Wedge Boots” $169
    Looking for a Lady Gaga-inspired look without getting too over-the-top? These studded wedges will give you the edge you’re looking for, but in a wearable, easy way. Pair them with black tights and your favorite tunic, or bare your legs and throw on a metallic skirt. Taking risks with shoe choices isn’t as scary as you may think!

  3. Forever21 “Floral Embellished Satin Pump” $24.80
    Obviously many college gals are on a tight budget, so luxuriously priced shoes may be just out of your grasp. That is never a problem when you have fashion-conscious brands like Forever21 that don’t have us screaming when reaching for that debit card. To get on board with the cobalt blue accessories trend, throw on these sexy heels. With the floral detailing on the back and the look-at-me color, you can instantly add pizzazz to any outfit.

  4. Michael Antonio “Logi” $75
    Every girl needs a pair of nude platforms. It’s as simple as that! Think of that top that you can never tell if black actually matches it or not. Or switch up your business casual outfit with conservative, yet fashion-forward, neutral-toned pumps. These buckle platforms have a unique take on the trend with the white lining above the platform, and the height will definitely have you turning heads.

  5. Charlotte Russe, “Print Elastic Ballet Flats” $22.50
    Rule for 2011: Leopard-print should be treated as a neutral. Trade in your bold bag for an animal-printed number, or throw on a skinny belt in the bold pattern. Better yet? Rock the style on your feet. These flats would be perfect for setting the trend in class or getting some coffee with your friends. Plus, the diamond embellishment adds a little glam, and what girl can resist that?
So step away from the UGGs, resist the urge to wear your plain heels to every party you attend, and take a chance with some attention-grabbing footwear.
