santoni-shoeboots.jpgThe open-sided look has really grown on us recently, and we love the way it transforms a staple winter style into one that can be worn all year around. It also looks amazing, and allows you to show off your statement hosiery (or golden tan) to full effect.

Santoni has created some lovely shoes along these style lines in its current collection, and we love this gold bootie with its beautifully appliqued uppers and contrasting scarlet interior. It's a bit circus chic, and ideal for anyone working a retro glamour look.

For a more affordable alternative to this look, why not check out the lovely open shoe-boots from Beyond Skin?
