Much like mules, heart prints get a bad rap. I can see why: There are plenty out there that are cheesy, twee, or downright ugly. I long detested them, along with my friend and colleague Carrie (who, it should be noted, is the editor of Philadelphia Wedding—if anyone should love hearts, it’s her). Then I bought this pair of Alice + Olivia shoes: black-and-white calf-hair Mary Janes. They’ve reformed my heart-hating ways (Carrie even loves ’em!) and proved that—when done right—hearts can actually be chic. Here are my top 7 ways to wear your heart on your sleeve (literally). Better than roses? I think so.
