Diane Von Furstenberg's Zia slingback platform sandals are on sale for $204.30 down from $284 at Zappos.com. They have a great '70s throwback vibe but the simplicity of the style means these will become a classic in your closet.
N.Y.L.A.'s Poin Clog will give you a similar look for a little less, $79.95 at dsw.com. Despite the high vamp, I wouldn't worry too much about these shortening the appearance of your legs because of the way the straps crisscross in front. The tan color will also look great with tan, medium or darker skin tones and above-the-knee skirts.
