How to Wear: Sabina by Michael Kors

This week on Alexandria Stylebook, we were asked a question about cage heels. The reader thought that the style might cut her off at the ankle, making her look shorter and disproportionate. I asked Lyndsay to respond to the reader, and I loved her answer. She suggested wearing the Sabina by Michael Kors–the particular cage heel in question–with a black dress. I decided we should put together a couple of examples: one following Lyndsay’s guidelines and one that is a bit more casual.

We love this look for an evening out. It stands out in its simplicity and the attention to details. The Sabina. A simple sheath with a deep V and leather sleeves by Miu Miu. And a stack of the Jenny Bird serpent bangles we just got in.

For day, we think the Sabinas work equally well with denim. Select a boyfriend style rolled (not cuffed) half an inch above the top of the shoe. A fitted black sweater, cashmere scarf in a softer, lighter neutral with a sturdy bag add just the right amount of nonchalance and style. Oh yeah, and the Pour la Victoire bag is ours too. It’s a winner!
