Bleach Skimmer by Deena & Ozzy
Why We Like It: An eighties-inspired bleached effect is a graphic and refreshing alternative to solid-hued skimmers.
Boat Chukka by Band of Outsiders for Sperry Topsider
Why We Like It: The classic chukka shape is reimagined in a warm wool flannel, perfect for keeping feet toasty in colder months.
Studded Boot by Where
Why We Like It: With a folded-over leg accented with a row of pyramid studs, the wedge boot takes on the biker trend with a result that is both tough and sleek.
Formal Leather Brogue by Topman
Why We Like It: Brogues are the shoe of the season and this well-priced version is a polished way to finish any outfit.
Fawson by Aldo
Why We Like It: Classic pumps are updated in light gray suede that goes from the office to post-work cocktails.
