    Cara Delevinge

    Shopping in New York wearing Timberland’s Cupsole Boots ($120).

    W.W.S.W. Pick: Adidas by O.C. Rod Laver Vintage High-Top Sneakers ($212)
    Colorful kicks are practically a Cara Delevingne staple at this point, and these Adidas by Opening Ceremony sneakers are the perfect nod to the model’s playfully quirky sensibilities. We imagine she’d play up the striped print with an equally vibrant sweater.

    Solange Knowles

    Seen here at Coachella wearing kate spade new york’s Ila Sandals ($358).

    W.W.S.W. Pick: Charlotte Olympia Miranda Satin Wedge Sandals ($895)
    Given Solange Knowles’ affinity for head-turning prints, we couldn’t think of a more perfect shoe for the style savant than Charlotte Olympia’s Miranda Satin Wedge Sandals ($895). We love them for their seasonably appropriate floral motif and delicate ankle strap.

    Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

    Running errands in Los Angeles in Isabel Marant’s Embroidered Ankle Boots ($1155).

    W.W.S.W. Pick: Ancient Greek Sandals for Marios Schwab Low Rise Gladiator Sandals ($390)
    ​This gladiator sandal with raffia fringe detailing calls for a confident dresser with fashion-forward tastes, making Rosie Huntington-Whiteley their ideal match. Plus, much like the British beauty, these sandals make a major style statement and are guaranteed to turn heads.

    Gwyneth Paltrow

    Arriving at Good Morning America in Bruno Magli heels.

    W.W.S.W. Pick: Derek Lam Natural Leather and Multi Snake Bijou Sandals ($578)
    Picking our favorite Derek Lam shoe is a lot like picking our favorite Gwyneth Paltrow look: it’s difficult to choose just one. That being said, we’re particularly drawn to the designer’s neutral snake-print sandals and have a hunch Paltrow would appreciate their sleek and subversively sexy design too.

    Ashley Olsen

    Leaving a Beverly Hills nail salon wearing Manolo Blahnik’s Susa Flat Leather Sandals ($625).

    W.W.S.W. Pick: Marni Fussbett Sandals ($590)
    Chalk it up to Celine’s furry sandals or our inner granola, but we can’t get enough of spring’s Birkenstock-inspired footwear. Ashley Olsen has been spotted on more than one occasion wearing a similar style, which leads us to believe she would enjoy Marni’s sleek take on the trend as well. We’d wear them with a sleeveless blouse and tennis skirt for a sportif twist.

    Alexander Wang

    Johanna Sandals ($495) in Vine
    This glossy heel is a knockout both coming (sleek ankle cuff and toe strap) and going (wraparound buckles and cool cutouts).

    Tory Burch

    Ambrosia Sandals ($395)
    ​Artfully embellished sandals lend a festive touch to a sleek GNO look.

    Tildon

    Asoria Oxfords ($60)
    ​Make silver metallic oxfords your new go-to shoe by pairing them with everything from printed sundresses to an all-American t-shirt and jeans combo.

    Surface to Air

    Serra Cowboy Boots ($420)
    ​These Western-inspired ankle boots look just as stylish worn with a feminine frock as they do with leather pants.

  • 12 of 19

    Stella McCartney

    Valerie Faux Suede Plexi Wedges ($1055)
    ​See-through wedges are in perfect keeping with spring’s transparent accessory trend.

  • 13 of 19

    Rachel Roy

    Dal Sandals ($350)
    ​A gem-encrusted heel spells eveningwear with a capital E, but try it with a pair of cuffed jeans for an unexpected contrast.

    3.1 Phillip Lim

    Juliette Wedge Sandals ($495)
    ​Architectural wedges demand the spotlight, so keep them there with a mix of understated neutrals.

  • 15 of 19

    Karl Lagerfeld

    Leather High-Top Wedge Sneakers ($345)
    ​Take style cues from Chloe Moretz and Jessica Biel, and try a pair of punchy sneakers for your next off-duty outing.

    Jeffrey Campbell

    Brighton Platform Mules ($192)
    ​Nod to the ‘70s with a pair of patent leather mules--Chloe Sevigny would approve!

  • 17 of 19

    Isabel Marant

    Clemence Studded Heels ($800)
    ​Stud-embellished white heels will take you from the office to after-sunset cocktails to date night with ease.

  • 18 of 19

    Dolce Vita

    Giya Shoes ($129)
    ​Pointed-toe loafers are a chic masculine-feminine hybrid. Add extra polish with tailored trousers.
