Put on a Peep Show

Show a little skin with a peep-toe shoe. Marilyn immortalized this toe-baring style, known for its cut-outs that let your little tootsies shine. The peep-toe heel can be worn as a sandal or a dignified pump, and it was worn by Marilyn most of the time. We could learn a thing or two from her loyalty.

And although the appropriate nature of peep-toe shoes is still debated in some corporate cultures, we're betting if you make the look part of your signature style, the addition will go off without a hitch. Just make sure your toes are appropriately pedicured.
