This spring, you’re fully booked with outdoor weddings, baby showers, cocktail parties, brunches, and more — and there’s no question you’ll be needing a chic pair of shoes for every occasion. Polish off your easy dresses and weekend jeans with patent-leather ballet flats and buckled metallic sandals, or step into sexy nude pumps and strappy stiletto heels for your more formal affairs.
Candela’s boho-meets-ranch girl clothing and footwear collection melds toughness with an ultra-feminine sensibility. Leopard-print booties and velvet oxford shoes, lacy sandals, gauzy floor-length maxi dresses, and silky blouses seem to be rooted in all-American boho chic, but also closely reflect the South American roots of Candela’s Uruguayan founder, Gabriela Perezutti. Now based in NYC, Perezutti started Candela as a line of T-shirts but quickly expanded her collection to include everything from leather handbags to flouncy leather skirts to silk crepe de Chine maxi dresses perfect for springtime galas.
