Last fall I waited too long to buy a pair of Prada kitten-heeled pumps with bows similar to those shown here; they sold out before I got my act together. Thankfully this season there are many options. If you want to be seriously demure you could pair them with a dress. Personally I prefer to treat them like regular flats and wear them with skinny black or denim jeans and a simple top, even something a little more masculine—say a striped button-down or a motorcycle jacket. Then again, I like them with almost everything.
Clockwise from top left: Miu Miu velvet pumps, $750; Charlotte Olympia mules, $590; Manolo Blahnik loafers, $695; Prada velvet pumps, $690; No. 21 leopard mules, $820; Manolo Blahnik suede pump, $865.
