Trend Watch: Ankle Cuff

Consider it the sophisticated older sister of the gladiator . . . The dainty ankle strap has been replaced by a tough and sexy wide band.

The inspiration for this post and Couture Carrie's favorite pair of the lot are these glamorous gold Gucci sandals. Photo via French Vogue.

The following four stunners can all be found at Barneys New York. Go to, where some of them are even on sale!!

At left, Pierre Hardy putty-tone zipper sandal.
At right, Lanvin studded t-strap.
