It’s finally time to ditch those layers and put away the woolly jumpers as summer is here (well for a week or so at least). So if your shoe cupboard is looking a bit tired or you’re simply in need of a refresh, ensure you’ve got sole this spring/summer 2016, thanks to Farfetch.
Fortunately, it’s not all about Flatforms and Powerful Platforms. Undoubtedly these heeled warriors can give your outfit a lift but if you’re a child of the 80s, this throwback to your teenage years can feel a little too close to home, and no matter how beautifully designed they are you’ll never do them justice if you’re not used to walking in heels. Master the art of sky-high heels and then you can stride ahead in this season’s mini dress and gold bling.
For those who prefer a lighter sole, there’s always the dainty ballerina flats. Smarten up a pair of jeans and throw in some sparkle with all that glitters, opt for detail such as a bow, or keep it simple and nude. Ballet flats can work as an everyday or evening shoe and are a practical and stylish alternative to heels.
A personal favourite of mine from the Walk This Way piece is the colour wheel. I’m a huge fan of adding colour subtly to an outfit. This could mean teaming a bright pink scarf with a black vest top and black jeans or wearing top to toe bright colours. Shoes are a great way to introduce the idea of colour and show a flair for style without being too obvious.
Party sliders may remind some of slippers, they are a practical way to adorn your outfit this summer. Just as stunning as heels, you can wear them under an evening gown and hit the dance floor pain-free.
Finally, as someone who returned only a month ago from the Lone State (Texas), cowboy boots are a welcome addition to the pack. I only wished I’d bought a pair out there.
