When it is perhaps too soon to fully climb on board the new season trends, a ‘shoe-drobe’ refresh is the best way to pep up your staples says Sophie White
There’s a certain whisper of spring in the air. We’re not going to mention any “grand stretches” but a touch of light has broken the back of the Winter bleakness and it’s time to start getting excited for colour and pattern once more.
The transitional trends are often a tricky thing to get a handle on and sometimes when you want a quick update minus a major outlay of cha-ching, a new pair of shoes will be just the lift you need.
