Ankle straps are having a moment. Ok, maybe they have been but I’ve finally jumped on the bandwagon and regret not doing so sooner. Old style rumors say that they can make your legs look shorter and are not as flattering but I disagree; worn in a good fit for your leg/ankle, not only they do they have some serious sex appeal, they are also ultra comfortable. They’re way more stable and eliminate worry about your heel popping out. Win! When trying on a pair, be sure to walk on floor (not just carpet) to ensure a comfortable fit and that it’s not too constricting around your ankle, both for comfort factor and look.

Here’s a few favorite finds, under $100 each, to take you stylishly into the spring:

Mia (so work appropriate! also in snakeskin) || Nine West  || Asos

Michael Antonio || Nine West (love yellow and red, too!) || Mossimo (also in black) || Jessica Simpson (pair now with black tights and dress!)

Zara ||  Nine West (comes in five colors) ||    Chinese Laundry (also in grey and silver) || Steve Madden (comes in three colors)
