Olivia Palermo

Olivia's retro-cool gray booties are a perfect match for her vintage-looking shift.
file
Equal parts Victorian and sleek, with a cute cap-toe detail.
file
These really hug the ankle and give all the height you could ever want. The moto buckle is a nice edgy touch, too.
file
A foldover detail slims the ankle, plus the green is totally unexpected.
file
Wing tips go feminine with a stacked heel, graceful lines, and a patent finish.
file
The wraparound ankle strap adds an extra shot of attitude to this colorful pair.
file
Straight from the '40s and utterly ladylike.
file
Such a cool take on a traditional desert boot.
file
A combat style that offers just the right amount of tough.
file
This dusty navy pair is a great way to veer from basic black without going out of your comfort zone.
file
A modern take on a military style, done in a completely original pale olive.
file
This sand-colored option is perfect with relaxed, cuffed jeans and a cozy sweater.
file
Quirky and artful, but still appropriate for work.
file
These are the hiking boot's dressier cousin!
file
If heels were allowed on bowling lanes, you could bet we'd be wearing these.
