Can I wear sandals during the winter? –Jules

The answer is a definitive yes. Just look at a few of our favorite bloggers:

-Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller wears open-toed heels with a suit.
-Jane Aldridge from Sea of Shoes suggests ankle strap sandals with a sweater and leather skirt for an easy winter go-to.
-Merritt Beck of The Style Scribe pairs sandals with a knit ensemble and bare legs here and a tailored dress and blazer here.

Your tootsies may get chilly, but paired with a seasonal outfit, they’re a-okay in the fashion world. I’m particular fond of a slouchy sweater, skinny denim, and strappy heels. If you’ve got a pair with a little bling, they’re perfectly festive for holiday parties, as well. If you’re looking to keep warm and thinking a pair of tights will do you good, check out Who What Wear’s segment on how to pair tights with shoes.
