Ankle Strap Shoes Are Back And These Are The Pairs We Want

Ankle Strap Shoes Are Back And These Are The Pairs We Want

The ankle is one of the sexiest parts of a woman’s body, and this season’s most coveted shoes are all about showing that off. Here are five favourites.

These barely-there sandals are sexy but chic. Glitter will be popular for both day and evening come spring/summer so consider wearing these with socks for day and without for night.

Glitter sandals, €89 at & Other Stories

Feather trims have been popular on the catwalks for the past couple of seasons. I love these fun feather sandals. Worn with something structured and contemporary, they will feel less frivolous and more fashion.

Feather sandals, €20 (reduced from €57) at Topshop

These ankle-strap courts have a lovely mix of textures. The suede and nappa leather give a luxe feel, as does the subtle gold detailing.

Red leather court shoes, €79.99 at Massimo Dutti

I saw a photograph of Sienna Miller not long ago sporting this style of spherical block heel. The chunkiness of the heel contrasts nicely with the daintiness of the ankle strap, offering a shoe that’s modern and alternative.

Block heel sandal, €69.99 at Zara

Ankle strap shoes don’t have to be delicate. I love these statement shoes, with their studded block heel and oversized button detailing. The super-wide ankle strap will also offer great support.

Leather shoes, Peter Petrov, €384 (reduced from €640) at net-a-porter.com
