Not too high, not too low, the midi-heel--A.K.A, spring's most desirable shoe--is just right. They're sensible yet sophisticated, the happy medium between a flat sandal and a sky-high stiletto. They will be my go-to's this season, because they give me the 2- to 3-inch leg-lengthening lift I need without the hardship of a high heel. They also go with just about everything from a pair of jeans to a feminine pleated skirt. My favorites include this cool wraparound Alexa Wagner, this classic metallic Manolo Blahnik (I covet the snakeskin version too), this black ankle-strap Joe's Jeans,* this block-heeled Gucci, this buckle-trimmed Steven,* and this scalloped Loeffler Randall.
*These shoes are 25% off through Thursday 4/17.
