This season, swap spindly stilettos for low pumps that deliver sky-high style sans vertigo. With heels jewel-encrusted, ringed with gems and plated in metal, coming back down to earth has never looked more glamorous.

A styling tip: Don’t reserve sparkle and shine for cocktail parties. The chunky heel and low profile of these pairs mean they work well for daytime, too. Pair with cropped pants or skinny jeans for an instant style upgrade. As for your stilettos? Take them out of your rotation for the next few months. (Your feet will thank you.)
