Sexy Shoes Perfect For Valentine’s Day

Sexy Shoes Perfect For Valentine’s Day

If you’re being wined and dined this Valentine’s Day, take the opportunity to splurge on some completely impractical but super sexy’shoes for the occasion. Here are five fabulous pairs.

If ever there was a Carrie Bradshaw shoe, this pair of No.21 mules are it. They are made of utilitarian canvas, which is printed with florals, creating a stylish contrast between?beauty and utility. The frayed edging adds texture?while the brand’s signature knot adds an elaborate finish. These shoes are a work of art.

The’monochromatic look of these Zara shoes makes a very modern and graphic statement. They’ll complement perfectly a block-coloured dress or vibrant print.

These Christian Laboutin heels cleverly include a large buckle at the ankle?which?accentuates the slimmest part of your leg. Made in tactile suede, the texture adds sensuosity, while the punchy’red ?is a perfect choice for Valentine’s Day, without looking cheesy as it’s balanced with other rainbow brights.

Snakeskin is always sexy. I like that the print of these Uterque heels is paired with a traditional court-shaped design. They make a statement, but it’s a subtle one.

I would describe these sandals as “barely there”. Made from leather and beautifully embellished with multi-coloured stones, they’ll add sparkle and personality to your outfit.
