Based on the recent Fashion Week shows, it appears that there has been a shift in footwear fashion for Spring/Summer 2013; flat shoes are everywhere. According to fashion forecasters, the killer heels no longer have the edge they once did, with many designers sending their models down the catwalk in flat pumps. And this even includes the former high skyscraper heel devotee Victoria Beckham (below). Choosing flats over heels has nothing to do with preferring comfort over style, its simply a case of flat shoes being the ultimate accessory for SS13. True to this, many of the fashionistas at London Fashion Week accessorised their outfits with flats and low-heels, from spangly metallic loafers and bold-print brogues, to plush velvet, beaded embellished pumps and ornate brocade slippers.
And luckily this is a trend that you can follow fairly cheaply with bargain pumps currently in-store in your local Primark – these studded flats are £12 and these almond shoes cover two of this season’s trends with its dark toe-cap – this pair is only £5, what a bargain!
