Class It Up With The Newest Ladylike Shoes

There's a certain kind of woman who thinks about bows and sparkles the way crack addicts think about, well, crack. And if you happen to be that kind of woman, then this is the shoe roundup for you. The court heel, skinny stilettos, and sweet detailing are coming back in a big way. That's why we're here to help you step up your '50s-inspired footwear game this holiday season, with a roundup of ladylike shoes.
And if you're more the type to live in a uniform of baggy denim, slouchy sweaters, and generally un-ladylike separates? A prim shoe is an unexpected touch that will make your boyish ensemble look insouciant instead of sloppy. Ahead are some feminine shoes that'll give your holiday footwear game a big kick in the derriere.
