Best Bet: Idalia Leather Sandals


Though New York’s collective winter wardrobe is rooted largely in black, navy, and charcoal gray, spring marks a return to the lighter side of the color spectrum. These nude leather sandals by Dolce Vita feel sweetly spring-y without being over-the-top girlie. Unlike some of the season’s more aggressive heels and wedges, these can pair with shorts, jeans, or dresses. The half-inch heel gives you an ever-so-slight boost, while the simple tassel detail offers an alternative to overdone bows and beading.
