The flexible rubber soles are non-slip, while the footbed is made of soft latex for comfort, even when worn all day.

  • Available sizes: 5 — 11, including half sizes

A Faux Leather Belt To Make Any Outfit Edgier

Bustiers, bodices, and breastplates might look chic on a runway, but they’re uncomfortable IRL.

Anzaldua recommends pairing this pick with a fitted top and notes that you can take the look from day to night with a simple shoe swap.

  • Available sizes: Small — 3X-Large
  • Available colors: 20


These Decorative Safety Pins For Quick Fixes & Added Style

If you have a pair of pants (or any other clothing item) that is a bit too big, Anzaldua recommends utilizing these stylish safety pins for a better fit — and they double as an accessory, too. The set comes with nine pins with various decorative faux pearls, rhinestones, and beaded accents.


A Set Of Clips To Change Up Clothing & Accessories You Already Own

This five-pack of ring clips is Anzaldua’s little secret. They can be used to totally change up the look of scarves, shirts, and skirts in a snap (Anzaldua particularly finds them useful for adding shape to oversize clothing) — just slide the fabric through the top and then the bottom to secure it. The set comes with five clips in various metal finishes to vibe with any look.


These Cat Eye Sunglasses That Are A Stylist’s Personal Fave

Personal stylist Sheena Paris rocks these cat eye sunglasses and always gets asked where they’re from. Shockingly the answer is Amazon — and they cost just $14. “I like a lighter colored pair of sunglasses to go with my summer whites,” she explains. And the vintage shape couldn't be any cooler.
