Let’s face it, when it’s time to up the ante for in-person meetings tied to either your career or your side hustle, you have got to dress the part. As a self-confessed BlackGlamourMom who is in just as much love with her heel and bag collection as she is with her obsession over costume jewelry, it should come as no surprise that I am dishing on 5 of the hottest heels I’ve spotted over the past couple of weeks.
These heels run the gamut in terms of the price tag but one thing remains the same; they were all designed for us moms who not only crave, but also continuously bring our A-Game.
Check out 5 of my favorite picks:
The Lace-Up Heel
Nothing says high-powered, get it done mommy than a pair of lace up heels. These Christian Louboutin Franca 85 feature both lace-up details and a heel cutout. These would look so glam paired with tailored pants or a knee length pencil skirt. Trust me ladies, you never go wrong with a pair of Loubs.
Christian Louboutin $895
Leather and Calf Hair Collide
These leather and calf hair mix heels scream “business” while also giving off just the right amount of attitude. The Club Monaco “Ashlee Pump” is both fashion-forward and glamorous and retails for $298.00. I would definitely rock these while pitching one of my latest projects to a client.
Patent Leather Always Wins
Now these patent leather Valentino Studded heels are to die for! Not only is red such a power color to rock, but patent leather is always a winner when it comes to power dressing. I would totally suggest rocking these with a pair of nicely tailored slacks and a simple white button down blouse.
Saks Fifth Ave. $1,075
Get Down And Dirty With A Sexy Leopard Pair
Year over year I love to throw on an amazing pair of leopard print pumps. This year is no exception! This pair, from Fashion Favorite Isabel Marant is giving us leopard print lovers major life and confidence as we prepare to step into any business meeting this Fall. Paired with just about anything, these little babies scream, “Deal Closed!”
Colors capture the eye and close deals
A woman can never go wrong with a stylish, colorful heel. Whether it’s color blocked or a solid tone, a pop of color adds just the right amount of edge when paired with the appropriate look. I always suggest going more of the conservative side when rocking colorful heels. I am drooling over this pair from Designer Pierre Hardy.
So, there you have it! 5 heels that will place you on the path to success for your next power meeting. We want to hear from you. Which of the heels are your favorites?
