Franco Sarto 'Safari' Wedge

Franco Sarto 'Safari' Wedge, $99.95 from Nordstrom

Although black patent leather works great with the denim-and-blazer look, let’s agree to end all things Darth-Vader-dark there. This season’s all about color, and the patent shoe/bag combo shouldn’t be any different. Think yellow patent wedges and a yellow clutch to bring out one of the colors in your maxidress. Stunning.
