Question: I just purchased a pair of gaoucho pants and I’m wondering what type of shoes to wear with them.

Gauchos or culottes have a lot of volume in the leg so it’s a good idea to choose a heel that balances the proportion.

Pair the gaucho pants with one of springs chunky open-toe platform heels a la Chloé. Ward off chilly weather by wearing a pair of black opaque tights with the open-toe which is super chic for spring.

The closed toe platform heel is another great look – choose one with a slightly pointed toe. For the warm summer months, try an espadrille in sequin, floral, or bright color.

For great footwear, check out the following retailers: Aldo, Town Shoes, Browns, Corbo Boutique, Mona Moore, Zola Shoes.
