Shoes are always tricky at this time of year, so I have some suggestions for you of ones that are pretty, yet practical. The red ones on the left are from Zara – they are red patent and have a kitten heel and ankle strap. They are more limited in their appeal in one sense as they will only work for women with slim legs and ankles but if you can get away with them go for it! The ones on the right have a pretty floral print, a mid height heel and they are from Dune. They will work well with black work trousers, cropped trousers, jeans – plain skirts or dresses – pretty much anything really and will just lift the black clothes that you probably haven’t yet cast off.
Here are some flatter shoes – good old converse, which you can get in many colours (Jones, Office, Schuh) and which have now earnt their fashion stripes as a design classic. They can be worn with jeans and also with dresses and skirts to give them slightly more edge. On the right is a pretty pump with a bit of bling on the front – not too much though! They are from Jones.
Hope that you like!
