Celebrities often shy away from the camera when off the red carpet, but not Emmy Rossum. While running errands in West Hollywood this week, the Shameless actress hammed it up for the paps with a smile on her face that said, "Yes, I know I look good." Though her A.L.C. floral sundress and crossbody are stunning, it's her feet that really caught our attention. Here, Rossum shows us how to take our wardrobe from summer to school (or, at least, school season) by switching out sandals for fancy flats — AGL patent leather oxfords, to be exact.
Take a page out of her transitional-dressing playbook, and start your look from the bottom up with a new pair of shiny shoes. Your go-to weekend outfit will feel at once rejuvenated and also more seasonally appropriate. Finally, a reason to look forward to the leaves changing color.
