There's something very chic happening with each of these celebrity ensembles — and it's all happening south of their ankles. To be fair, their cocktail looks and casualwear are styled starting places, but the outfit clincher in all of these looks is a pair of t-strap heels, flats, or sandals. While the silhouette is nothing new, the t-bar is pulling rank as one of the hottest styles to hit the pavement this season, on the heels of style setters like Alexa Chung at Fashion Week and
Emma Stone. As for designers, we're getting both sweet flat and sexier studded iterations from Valentino, retro-feeling heels with modern-day flair from Christian Louboutin, and a range of other styles to choose from that all add extra interest with a t-bar strap. This is style to a T, so click on to see who's wearing them — then shop your own.
