With bright colours, bold prints, pretty pastels and lots of texture setting the tone for the way we dress this summer, it’s great to see these must-haves migrating to our shoe selection. We count down the hottest new shoe shapes you absolutely need, right now.
THE PRINTED WEDGE
Prints are such big news for summer it’s not surprising to see these decorative designs on trendy wedges. A new way to wear your printed heel is by going for a style where the print is on the actual wedge – such a
fun way to add a beautiful print like Aztec, florals or animal to your look.
THE SMOKING SLIPPER
A masculine slip-in shoe with a quirky “gentleman” feel, the smoking slipper is the perfect replacement for your ballet flats. Equally comfortable and on-trend, make sure you go for a textured slipper in velvet, snakeskin or animal print.
If your ballet flats or kitten heels are sporting a cute cap toe you are totally channelling all that’s fashionable and fun. We adore the combination of a bright neon shoe with a muted nude cap-toe, or even a soft pastel with silver or gold.
THE COLOUR BLOCK HEE
Colour blocking remains a thoroughly popular effect and we’ve recently seen this same statement on sexy heels. These multi-shade shoes are just what you need to add colour to a simple black cocktail dress. Also looks great with a casual white shirt and jeans.
The ultimate nautical footwear look, the espadrille’s summer style is flat, textured and printed in all of the season’s adored shades. Think coral, mint, lace, Aztec and even crochet – the espadrille is slip-on heaven.
