Add Sparkle To August With Bejewelled Shoes

Add Sparkle To August With Bejewelled Shoes

Accessorising can be tricky sometimes: earrings, necklace, bracelet, rings – are?all four at once too much? How statement is too shouty and does fine look a little frumpy? Why not try stepping away from traditional jewellery and wearing a pair of bejewelled shoes instead? Here are four Cinderella-worthy pairs.

Online retailer uterque.com has one of the best selections of bejewelled shoes. The silver embellished slippers below are one of my favourites. They feel modern but so pretty too.

Embellished bejewelled babouches, €125 at uterque.com

Velvet and jewel detailing? How luxe are these gorgeous boots from Zara? The gorgeous deep, earthy green shade will work beautifully with autumn’s key colour palette.

There’s a distinct leaning?towards “lady shoes” (as I call them) right now, and it doesn’t get more feminine than these exquisite pink ballerina slippers. I love how they’ve been styled with a really modern, boyish shirt and denims.

Embellished velvet slippers, Aquazzura, €625 at net-a-porter.com

For something a little more subtle, try these gold barely-there sandals from Maje. The delicate diamante buckles add just a hint of bling to what is a very delicate shoe.
