Introducing the perfect transitional heel, brought to Us by Lea Michele.

As the summer winds down and temperatures begin to fall, the Glee star, 27, has swapped her summer sandals for an open-toed bootie. She has paired the Pedro Garcia "Sofia" booties ($495, Nordstrom.com) with a jumpsuit, romper and, on July 25 in NYC, cuffed jeans. The perforated suede shoe features a manageable three-and-a-half-inch heel and adjustable slingback strap.

Since the near-$500 price tag might not fit everyone's budget, here are three more affordable options.
