The party season is fast approaching and we're excited because it means shopping for one of our favourite things- heels!
Simple ankle straps are still huge but there are also some more interesting cuts too, peekaboo, laces etc. Who says you should only one pair of heels anyway?
If New York Fashion week is all sleek and high-brow, then London gets the rep as the fun city, dependable for turning out cheeky, cheery designs right down to the very bottom of things. We already zoomed in on the best shoes from NYFW, and now it's time to turn our gaze to London. Whether it's ultra-sexy from Tom Ford or bright and bold from Mary Katrantzou, these pretty steppers are worth the same focus as the clothes themselves.
Here's one shoe trend that can instantly add polish to your work or weekend outfit — the pointy ankle-strap pump. The pointy pump is an enduring fashion favourite — and of-the-moment options offer a touch more support in the form of a chic ankle strap.
Think dollars-per-wear and invest in a black pair that will take you straight out from the office AND give boyfriend denim a turbo-chic finish for the weekend. For a trend-driven approach, try yours with the season's ankle-skimming trousers and punctuate your look with a perspex heel or metallic finish.
Let your fingers do the browsing and shop ten of the best, from budget-friendly to investment wish list.
My wardrobe isn't exactly contained to one part of my room. You'll see from these pictures that I'm the kind of person who likes things where they're accessible, and I don't stick to one particular look. My favourite items are on display because I like to literally be surrounded by things I love. As such, clothes, shoes and bags all mingle with pieces of art, books and photos in various spots around my room. Don't be fooled by the busyness, though — everything has a designated place and stays there, and I refresh it all every few weeks.
When it comes to jewellery, things have been known to get out of hand. A few months ago, I got overwhelmed with the clutter, and donated majority of it to the local St. Vinnies. Now, I like to keep one or two precious pieces out, like my silver PANDORA bangle, or my dad's silver bracelet from when he was a baby. It's all a bit contradictory in my wardrobe — some parts are minimalist (okay, my kind of minimalism) and other areas are full of colour and mismatched wares. . . But come and see for yourself! Click through to have a peek, and be sure check out all our other PANDORA Inside Her Wardrobe features, too.
Yes, you read that right — the mule. The slip-on style has been hovering the outskirts of our trend radar for a while now — dipping in and out in various guises. Initially, it was the high on the foot, peeptoed Balenciaga "Glove" that signalled a change of silhouette was on the cards — all party at the front and bare-heeled at the rear. Back then it came with a back-strap, but the purest iterations now come in slip-on form with a solid single- or multiple-strap that covers most of the front-foot, with the back left fancy free. Shrug off clog connotations (shudder) by choosing refined silhouettes with single soles and stiletto heels. Ready for the new guard? It's here, and ready to shop right now.
The Resort 2014 collections certainly warrant a closer look, right down to the very last detail. But it's not just the never-ending supply of lightweight fabrics and vacation-ready pieces that make these collections ripe for Summer styling; the shoes, the bags, and the glittering jewels do the bulk of the statement-making. Ombré colourways provide new meaning to bright palettes, floral-embroidered tapestry bags double as chic beach totes, already-sexy pointy-toe pumps are transformed with even sexier cut-outs, and modified takes on the evening clutch aren't limited to graphic motifs and raffia finishes. See the best of the Resort 2014 accessories here in the gallery. — Additional reporting by Jennifer Michalski
Like the leaves turning colour, pulling out a pair of opaque tights is a true signifier that the seasons have changed. Those little leg warmers may well be a sure-fire (and inexpensive) tool for transitioning any outfit into Winter, but trouble can arise south of the ankle if you're not careful with your choice of shoe. Our trusty pointy-toed pump looks strange stuffed on a stocking-clad foot, and you can't wear a pull-on ankle boot to a fancy dinner or black tie affair.
The Brit It pack seem to have this style conundrum sorted — so we turned to the likes of Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller and Kate Middleton for help. Step inside to get the new school styling rules for high heels and hosiery, then shop our editor's picks.
