Seeing that they were everywhere during 2024 Fashion Week, I think it’s safe to say that slingbacks aren’t just spring’s biggest shoe trend – but they’re here for the long haul. When it comes to shopping for the hottest slingbacks of the season, Nordstrom is one of the best places to start your search. They’ve got everything from luxe designer picks to budget-friendly options, so you can find a style that fits your vibe no matter your budget. Nailing the styling of these shoes is key – and I’ll be guiding you through it ahead. With the right tips and tricks, they’re bound to become your go-to footwear all season long!

Today’s slingback pumps have shed their old-school vibes to emerge as the epitome of modern chic. The sleek silhouette adds a refined touch to any outfit, so they complement a variety of looks. Below, I’ve rounded up several of my favorite pairs from Prada’s Modellerie Pumps to affordable ones by Steve Madden, Sam Edelman and more!

The beauty of slingbacks lies in their ability to elevate casual pieces, making them a perfect match for denim. I paired mine with this denim midi dress for a fashion-forward look, but I can also see myself styling them with jeans that crop right above the ankle. Either way, they’ll a touch of sophistication to your denim looks.

Integrating slingback pumps into workwear ensembles is a no brainer thanks to their classic pointed toe shape. For a foolproof boardroom-ready look that transitions to after-work activities , pair them with a sheath dress of your choice and a smart blazer. If you’re into the trouser trend, a cropped blazer and wide leg trousers is just as effective!

Styling slingbacks with bodycon midi dresses requires minimal effort and yields maximum impact as seen in this affordable dress. The sleek heels enhance the figure-hugging silhouette, creating a streamlined and sophisticated look. This combination pairs beautifully with a range of outerwear options, allowing for endless styling possibilities.

As a versatile addition to your warm weather wardrobe, slingbacks shine bright when paired with sun dresses. A-line cuts and floral prints provide the perfect canvas for these chic heels. Whether you’re heading to a tropical destination or enjoying sunny days closer to home, slingbacks are the finishing touch for those stylish outfits.
