Welcome to our Ask an Editor series, where each month I'll answer a question submitted by our lovely readers. How does it work, you ask? At the end of this story, submit your style- or fashion-related question, and I'll pick the top submission to solve next month (and maybe even give you a shout-out!).
From affordable summer shoes to the types of heels that are out, it was all about shoes in my inbox this month. Nearly every style submission centered around summer styles and requests for tips on the next style to add to your shoe collection. Ask and you shall receive… Today I'm focusing on the one heel style to move to the back of your closet and the versatile option to replace it with. Thank you for all the submissions, and be sure to submit your next fashion-related question at the end!
Scroll down to find out the one heel style to retire (for now) and the shoe style to replace it with.
Let Go of Peep-Toe Pumps
If you love the peep-toe silhouette with a stiletto heel, by all means, go for it. However, I've been seeing more forward styles lately that feature a wider toe opening and a chunkier heel.
Instead, Try Block Heels
From an impressive satin option to a simple black number, scroll down to shop my favorite block heels.
These look way more expensive than they are.
These would look great with a pair of vintage jeans.
Ruffles are everything right now.
Kind of obsessed with the sorbet color.
Not quite block heels but still the same vibe (and so affordable).
Denim shoes? Yes, please!
These also come in cream and pink.
The mesh detail makes these look so luxe.
Perhaps the chicest pair of H&M shoes right now.
The white shoe trend is still going strong.
Who doesn't want lavender satin slip-ons?
Pretty and pink.
For a street style–inspired look, style this yellow pair with equally bright pieces.
ASOS never fails.
