Isn’t it amazing how a single (sometimes super skinny) strap can transform the classic pump into an ultra-ladylike and elegant shoe? Ankle strap pumps and sandals look fab with culottes, cropped pants, boyfriend jeans, dresses and your knee-length spring skirt of choice (pencil, pleated or with a fluted hem). These pretty pumps even walked down the runways of Elie Saab, Dsquared2 and Carolina Herrera. Want your own pair? Let’s go shopping!
