Sarah Jessica Parker's Blue Slingback Heels 2013

This Is Why the Slingback Heel Remains a Classic — Thank You, SJP

Sarah Jessica Parker invoked a little of that Carrie Bradshaw spirit with this balanced juxtaposition of polished, albeit laid-back, layers (exotic-printed Level 99 denim ($140) and L'Agence coat included) with the sleekest pair of slingback heels. If it weren't for those little details, this could just have been any other jeans and top ensemble, but when you factor in the standout subtleties, the outfit gained a lot of stylish momentum. To take on a similar brand of city-girl cool, start with a sophisticated foundation. Style a solid-color blouse with fitted jeans, and if you're feeling extra daring, spring for a snakeskin-printed pair like Sarah Jessica's. Then, hone in on that one make-it-or-break-it accent — in this case, a stellar teal-hued slingback heel — and let it be the talking point of your look. We love that this shoe is bright, eye-catching, and chic, but never registers as an over-the-top accessory. In fact, we'd go so far as to say these heels are the reason why SJP's daytime look gets our 9-to-5 (and beyond) approval. Chances are, you've got the essential outfit staples already in your closet, but the slingbacks? See our picks below.
