Pump Styles Inspired By The First Ladies Of The U.S.

On International Women’s Day we celebrate all things fabulous… including women’s fashion. We’re taking a look back at heel styles inspired by the First Ladies of the United States. From Jackie O to Melania Trump, there is something for everyone from Chinese Laundry, Jessica Simpson’s line, Nine West and beyond.

CL by Chinese Laundry block pump

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was a style icon. The low block-heel is back in fashion! Chinese Laundry, which has several lines from Kristin Cavallari to Dirty Laundry also has CL by Chinese Laundry with sophisticated looks for date nights, the board room and the red carpet. Their Ada pump features a comfortable  2¼" block heel and rounded toe silhouette. The black color is classic and goes with everything!

First Lady Nancy Reagan was very much into the two-tone heel. We love these Salvatore Ferragamo's Elea Two Tone Block Heel Pumps with a bow to add the cherry on top. Two-tone bows and polished patent leather cap toes on this low-heeled pump.

Nine West’s Margot mid-heel pump is great for that elegant yet comfortable look. Inspired by Michelle Obama’s low heel, this style has a pointed toe, suede material and is slightly cushioned.
