With its curled tongues of silver glitter and navy blue suede, Topshop's festive heel is for the city girl who'd rather have the wind to her back, sailing on the open sea. For a day downtown, she'd dress down her sea legs with distressed jeans rolled just so and a Comme des Garçons sailor striped tee. On top, she'd choose a cozy double-breasted coat with a silver Cambridge satchel, then play up a knit beanie with silver dripping chandelier earrings. While she mixes her all-hands-on-deck vibe with easy glamour, she also can't resist the charms of a good classic, like Melville's Moby Dick, or the more modern Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick by Givenchy.
