Experiment with the lace-up trend with super sexy black lace-up open pumps. These are perfect for a night out on the town, but you may not want to spend $1,900 on Roberto Cavalli High-Heeled Sandals. Fortunately, Charlotte Russe has a similar shoe that’s gorgeous with a sensible price tag.

An easy way to turn heads is to strut your stuff in thigh-high boots. This season’s sexiest over-the-knee styles are smooth suede with lots of body-loving stretch. The Mazzarine Stretch-Suede Over-The-Knee Boots by B Brian Atwood ($695) are both provocative and elegant. However, AMI Clubwear has a $34.99 faux-suede thigh-high boot that looks shockingly familiar.
