I'm typically as graceful as a newborn gazelle when wearing a pair of heels, but that's not the case in DV by Dolce Vita's Java bootie. A perfectly reasonable stacked heel height of two inches is just enough to give my legs some length—without making me teeter around like Frankenstein. Plus, I can wear these all day, every day without getting a blister.
These suede booties pair equally well with a skirt or skinny pants (the Java's available in a range of color options), and the ankle strap adds just a tiny bit of detail without being overdone. This is a past-season style, but DV by Dolce Vita adds similar bootie styles to its lineup on the regular.
