The Classic Slingback Shoes

post featured image

Most likely you have seen a pair of these or a similar style around. I have to confess I’ve been eyeing the actual Chanel slingbacks for a while now, but couldn’t bring myself to pull the trigger (adulting is hard, and finally at 40 I seem to be mastering on the art of such).

So, instead, I’ve been keeping my eye open for a great high-quality dupe, not fake friends! And while trying the actual Chanel in Chicago last weekend, I came across these Stuart Weitzman girls and as a cherry on the cake, they were running a Friends & Family sale…hmm that’s when I usually go “screw adulting!” Haha but seriously, this is a classic and I know I’ll get so much wear out of it!

You’ve been warned, and will be seeing lots of outfits in these slingbacks! Here are my own and an even better deal (hover over the picture for prices – promotions not reflected).

I thought I’d pair the classic slingbacks with two classic fall staples!

Plaid Blazer Look

Paired the shoes with a casual graphic tee and plaid blazer combo to bring a casual chic vibe. White skinny jeans are always a great choice for me! See more outfits wearing these jeans HERE.

These SW slingbacks feature a two-tone dress napa leather pumps with a 2.5″ covered block heel. Almond cap toe. Adjustable slingback strap. Leather lining and sole. Made in Spain. Super high quality! They also come in all black, black & white and suede.

Gently fitted blazer in woven fabric. Notched lapels, covered button at front, and welt front pockets. 3/4-length sleeves with decorative button at cuffs. Vent at back. Fully lined.

Mock-Turtleneck Sweater Look

This little mock turtleneck sweater is as much of a classic as my slingbacks. Audrey Hepburn vibes, anyone else getting them? See more looks with this sweater and others under $50 HERE.

This one is a conscious fabric made of recycled polyester content. Soft, rib-knit sweater with wool content. Mock turtleneck, long raglan sleeves, and ribbing at cuffs, and hem. Fits TTS and I’m wearing an XS. Kinda wishing I had gone with a more oversized look though.

I hope this was enough inspo to jump in the bandwagon! Or at least give you more ideas for something similar you have in your closet and have forgotten about!
