Women’s pumps range from conservative to sexy, and the right pair of pumps is one of the most versatile items you can have in your closet. But just because they’re a footwear staple doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Here are a few of my favorite women’s pumps of the season.
Butter ‘Cleo’ – Women’s Pumps with Open Toes
There’s something about open-toed pumps that is so feminine and classy, and these particular women’s pumps are especially appealing. I think it’s mostly due to the partially-concealed platform soles, but the pretty colors and finishes are helpful too. Ideal for pairing with nearly any dressier item in your closet, these pumps feature 4″ heels and .5″ platform soles.
Steve Madden ‘Toppazz’ – Sexy Women’s Pumps
These women’s pumps offer trendy ruffled accents, and come in lots in lots of different colors and eye-catching prints. Their 4.5″ heels are offset a bit by .75″ concealed platform soles, so they don’t feel quite as high as they look, and their silhouette is pure glamour and sex appeal.
Report ‘Toluca 2’ – Women’s Platform Pumps
The mesh uppers and metallic leather accents would have been enough to turn my head, but these women’s pumps also have a classic shape that’s versatile enough to pair with nearly anything. With 4.5″ heels and 1″ platform soles, these lookers are also available in black and gold, which are both nice, but for me, the blue and gold combination is the hands-down champion of the lot.
Paris Hilton ‘Taurus’ – Sexy Slingback Pumps
These women’s pumps have more sexy features than should be allowed on one pair of shoes, including 4.5″ heels, thick platform soles, open toes, and slingback styling. On top of all of that, they have tailored vamp straps that are sure to turn heads, whether you wear them to the office, or out to dinner after. Available in nude and black, these Paris Hilton pumps also feature pink soles.
Stuart Weitzman ‘Rosario’ – Women’s Designer Pumps
Want to make an impact at your next evening event? Try a pair of sexy pumps with fancy trim or embellishments, for a look that’s classic and head-turning. I’m particularly smitten with these glamorous evening pumps from Stuart Weitzman. The purple satin uppers and feminine rosette embellishments are sure to leave a lasting impression.
The Highest Heel ‘Slick’ – Ankle Strap Pumps for Women
If it’s femme fatale pumps you’re after, then you’re going to love these sexy pointy-toed pumps from The Highest Heel. Their sex appeal comes in part from their extremely thin 4″ metallic heels, but the two-piece uppers and skimpy ankle straps don’t hurt their cause any either. Available in a wide selection of colors, these women’s pumps are also reasonably priced, at less than $50 per pair.
Bandolino ‘Berry’ – Women’s Pumps with Low Heels
These are by far the most basic pumps pumps on the list, but I wanted to include them for two reasons. 1) Basic pumps are a justified staple in most women’s wardrobes, and 2) these basic pumps have low heels, making them great for women who can’t, or prefer not to, wear high heeled pumps. On top of all that, they’re very attractive with 2″ heels and classic, pointed-toe styling. If you don’t need a pair of lacy black fabric pumps, you may want to have a look at one of the many other versatile shades and materials.
