Ivanka Trump Footwear
Ivanka Trump has proven herself to be quite the successful businesswoman over the last few years, tackling major real estate projects, writing a best-selling book, and stepping into the luxury world with her namesake high-end jewelry collection. Now, Trump's taking on another accessory essential--shoes!--and the results are quite impressive. She's teamed up with Marc Fisher Footwear to create an affordable line of shoes that not only reflect Trump's timeless and glamorous aesthetic, but they're also entirely wearable and include everything from red-carpet-ready heels to chic pumps to fabulous flats. Today we're spotlighting a few of our favorite styles, but be sure to check out the entire collection here! And if you're in the D.C. area on Thursday, March 24th, stop by the Nordstrom store in Tyson's Corner Center at 1p.m. to celebrate the launch of the new collection. The designer herself will be there to offer shopping tips, so you don't want to miss out!
Annulio ($130) in Pewter Snake
Sometimes your feet need a break from high-rise stilettos, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style by wearing a boring flat! The Annulio is the perfect alternative, combining both comfort and elegance in this metallic snakeskin-embossed leather skimmer. We suggest styling them with a mini skirt or tailored shorts for a casually chic look.
The Hydria is the perfect shoe for spring, thanks to its intriguing cutouts and espadrille-inspired heel. The soft neutral hue will work well with most ensembles, making this shoe a versatile option you'll want to have on hand this season. Perfect for an afternoon BBQ, you can wear them casually with a pair of cut-off shorts or use them to dress up a floral maxi dress.
Asteria ($150, available at select Bloomingdales stores)
Sparkly sandals make for an excellent finish to your dressier ensembles, which is why we believe the Asteria is a worthy investment. The Art Deco diamante oval rings are inspired by Ivanka's fine jewelry collection, giving the shoe a truly luxurious look. Pair them with fancy neutrals to boost your glam factor..
($130, select Nordstom stores) in Blue
If you're searching for the perfect shoe for your next party or fancy dinner, look no further than the Dermani. The satin straps are certainly elegant, while the rich blue hue is a playful choice for spring. Need something a little more reserved? Not to worry, this dressy heel also comes in black and white! To really make an impression, pair them with a simple ensemble and other bright accessories.
Gurdia ($120) in Ivory Multi Patent
We love a shoe that is both chic and sexy at the same time, and happily, the Gurdia encompasses both of those qualities. We were instantly drawn to the contrasting accents--a great way to add visual interest to your look--and the ladylike pointed-toe shape. Additionally, we love the small cutouts around the base and ankle of the shoe; they're subtle, yet offer the perfect amount of sex appeal. This is a great pump for the office, so we suggest trying it with a pair of cigarette trousers or a slim pencil skirt.
Amoros ($120) in Leopard
There's no better way to liven up your look than with a leopard-print heel, hence our adoration for the Amoros. The feline print is definitely fun and eye-catching, so we're positive you'll turn heads wherever you go. Plus, the heel is a comfortable height, so it's a great on-the-go option as well. If you want to create a truly standout look, try this shoe with a bold-printed or vibrantly-hued skirt, or pair it with a black shift dress for a chic sophisticated ensemble.
The Lucirene may be a metaphor for the designer herself- equal parts ladylike charm and assertive edginess. An ideal footwear choice for individualist dressers, this style is also available in black patent with tan trim. Appropriate for the boardroom, yet sexy enough to take out on the town, we suggest pairing them with a floral frock or tailored separates to lend your look a bit of that tough-girl spirit.
($125) in Black
A peep-toe heel is a must-have for any wardrobe, which is why we're head over heels for the Bulbli. It's simple yet very chic, thanks to its classic shape, perfect proportions and thin ankle strap. Style them with a sleek cocktail dress or pair them with rolled-up trousers and blouse for a day at the office.
