Last month, a reader asked how to elongate her petite frame. I explained that nude shoes are the easiest solution. A peep-toe platform is the most flattering—and timeless—option but these Dolce Vita Cajun High Heel Gladiator Sandals ($138) are a trendy way to add height. The stacked sole makes them more comfortable, or at least as comfortable as a 4.25-inch heel can be. They remind me of a pair of Christian Louboutin sling backs I saw at Barneys the other week. Except they don’t have the obnoxious look-at-me red sole, and they’re almost one-tenth of the price. Plus, Shopbop.com is offering free shipping on all orders over $100 through July 31. If I hadn’t just bought two pairs of shoes recently, I would definitely add these to my cart.
