Did you know, it’s recommended that we try and walk 10,000 steps a day? Try doing that in heels! …Exactly! So it’s no surprise flats have become our go-to shoe. Don’t get us wrong, we’re a big sucker for heels in the evening – there’s nothing better than that leg-lengthening feeling as you step out. But when it comes to running around like a mad woman all day, we need a foot friendly flat to suit a plethora of outfits.
Making its 2016 revival (our mums will remember the debut!), the mule has become a foot saviour. They’re ideal for making your 9-5 wardrobe summer friendly… or taking the stress out of airport security by being an easy-access travel companion! Yep, mules are fast becoming a wardrobe stalwart… so choose from hi-shine metallics, evening-ready embellishments or day-to-day hardware.
THE LACE-UP FLAT
These babies may have been around for a few seasons, but there’s a reason for that. They’re SUPER versatile. Not only do they look GREAT worn with your favourite jeans and a simple shirt or tee, they’re also dress-uppable with a pretty tea dress or slick tailored trousers. The closed-toe makes them the perfect choice for work and a good option for your transitional wardrobe too!
Sliders became BIG news at the start of spring with the once-loved-by-dads Adidas pool slider making it BACK into the fashion consciousness. But if rubber sliders aren’t really your thing, there’s a whole host of different styles to suit any outfit whether you’re into slick, slimline mules like these, or fun, fashion-forward tassels like these.
What’s the betting 99% of women have a pair of ballet pumps in their wardrobe? With such an iconic silhouette, we’d be hard pushed to find an outfit they wouldn’t complement! Having a neutral pair is paramount, especially if you keep them under your desk or pop them in your work bag to save your feet to and from the office. We’re huge suckers for a colour pop pair though, and these make for the perfect accompaniment to skinny jeans or a midi skirt.
THE ELEVATED ESPADRILLE
And finally, espadrilles have well and truly claimed their place in our summer wardrobes – providing the perfect balance between shoe and sandal. From two-tone slip on styles to glistening metallic lace-ups, espadrilles are a must-have choice when the weather warms up. Keep your espas on trend by choosing elevated fabrics and intricate tie-up styles.
