Best Bet: ASOS Prior Pointed High Heels

When the dress code dictates cocktail, a strappy sandal is the go-to option, but a closed-toe shoe can be an alluring alternative. With a modern silver toe and a clean white heel, this take on the evening pump works well with monochromatic and printed summer dresses alike. You can also pair with cuffed jeans and a T-shirt for a polished day look.
