This summer it’s all about bright colours, bold prints and lots of texture. Your feet should be stealing the show, with every summer dress and tailored pair of shorts playing second fiddle to your footwear.
Every fashion retailer worth their salt is filling their stores with the bold and the beautiful, so that you can choose a selection of statement shoes that will see you through this season. So don’t be afraid to think outside of the box when it comes to your footwear; go wild!
The first shoe choice comes from Schuh, with this towering platform heel below named the Night Wish High Heel. It ticks all the boxes this season, with a bold and quirky print of woven glittery fabric, and enough height to tower over everyone you know. At £60, this is a choice investment in the season’s trend.
This leopard print lovely above is from Brantano, offering a great flat shoe to see you through casual outings. Named the Aintree Ballerina Animal Pump, it has slipper detailing at the front and a thin patent leather strip on the heel. Available for just £20, this is a great footwear staple that is sure to become your go-to item of the summer.
Not for those on a budget, this vampy wedge below from Kurt Geiger is available for £220 and follows the rubber trend of SS13 to a T. With an impressive (and slightly frightening) 14.5cm heel height, it is the godsend of the vertically challenged or for those who wish to be 6ft tall catwalk models. The peep toe and elasticated sling back on the Grace shoe provides great comfort, so it’s just up to your sense of balance to keep you upright.
With burnt orange, royal blue, black, pink and white, this is an explosion of colour sculpted into a platform heel sandal. Zara have nailed this season’s look with a shoe that will turn heads wherever its wearer goes. The ankle strap comes with a navy themed stripe with a delicate little royal blue buckle and is on sale for £25.99.
As you can see from this selection, a daring look is the way forward. Subtlety will just not do when it comes to your footwear, so put back the beige heels and the white sandals, as this season’s must-have is a mixture of bold colours, unusual prints and designs that are texture heavy.
