Spider Heels Are Back From the '90s (and I Want Them)



Spider heels—it sounds creepy, but I swear it's no such thing. If you've taken a scroll through your Instagram feed you've likely spotted them: spindly, strappy '90s-inspired sandals that criss-cross in a cobwebby sort of way. Despite the fact that I swept my own closet of this sandal style close to a decade ago, they're back thanks in many ways to Céline (as tends to happen in fashion), and now I'm regretting the fact that I didn't hold on to my favorite heels way back when and am stuck starting from scratch.

Luckily though, trying the trend anew is actually not as tough as you might think. In fact, there are plenty of brands that are championing the resurgence of the sleek, strappy sandal. Below, you'll find plenty of options to shop, along with a few of my favorite ways to wear spider sandals right now (in case you don't want to go for a head-to-toe throwback look). Read on to check it all out now. 

Strappy sandals and a miniskirt are an ideal combination for a toasty summer day. 

Ready to try a pop of color on for size? Style eye-catching red heels with a sweet suit set. 

When it comes to heat-wave style, there's nothing quite as easy as sleek sandals and a maxi dress. 

For date night (or heading out for drinks in general), try slinky spider heels with a fun tank dress and a mini bag.

If you're planning to show your toes, match your spider sandals to your pedicure – because why the heck not? 

A denim miniskirt is a summer staple, so add '90s sandals and you've got a cool take on a classic combination.



Channel your inner French girl and wear your sandals with a little bit of leopard.

A lightweight pair of linen pants add a more relaxed feel to a summer ensemble.

If you're a minimalist, go for all black (just make sure the temperatures allow for it). 

Now you're all set to try spider heels yourself.
