The new series of The Only Way Is Essex began on Sunday and what better way to celebrate the return of TOWIE to my life than to investigate the Essex girl’s shoes on Tuesday Shoesday.
Take a look at these photos of the gorgeous TOWIE cast and try to spot what these glamourous girls have in common:
Nope, it’s not just their penchant for wearing white but also their love of all things nude – yes I’m talking about their shoes.
So much for the Essex stereotype of white stilettos – the new generation of Essex babe is wearing nude platforms: different shapes and embellishments aside, the girls can’t get enough of their go-with-anything nude heels and I can’t say I blame them. Not only can one pair of nude shoes be worn with all colours, all lengths of dresses and trousers, but they elongate your legs by not creating a ‘break’ of the sightline at the foot, which is what darker and brighter shoes do. Nude may very well be the new black.
But on the other hand nude can be a bit dull; you can dress it up any way that you want ‘nude’, ‘ivory’, ‘caramel’, ‘mocha’, ‘bare’, ‘camel’, ‘tan’, ‘cream’ – it’s all just shades of beige isn’t it? And surely beige is our grandparents colour of choice? Yet somehow on the legs of Essex’s most glamourous (and most other entertainment stars too) it looks on-trend and sexy.
What do you think about all this nudity? Leave me a comment below:
PS: Tuesday Shoesday Update: I am giddy with excitement because I have found a pair of my coveted Dr Martens Case boots in the UK and have ordered them – only 3 days til they arrive hurrraaaahh!
