Summer Shoe Update


by Marie Kelly
10th May 2016

I’m dipping my toe in the waters of ladylike footwear?this summer and parking the chunky loafers I loved all last year. Ankle-strap heels, lace-up ballet-style shoes, mules and T-bar sandals suddenly look more cool than cute when paired with summer’s tailored pieces (culottes, reimagined white shirts) and frayed denim. Metallic finishes give genteel heels urban appeal, while animal prints and unexpected?textures (furry trims and sequinned?accents) prevent lady shoes from?appearing generic and obscure, as traditional court shoes sometimes can. Embellishment is also the answer to?adding a little eclecticism to your look. Keep everything else paired back and make your fancy footwear the star of the show. We’ve scoured the collections (high and low) and pulled together the ultimate edit of SS’s most sophisticated shoes.

Polko-dot works so well with summer stripes. These chic ankle-strap heels with look superb with a monochrome outfit, while also grounding head-to-toe colour-blocking.

Such an elegant shoe. Dusty pink with a tan sole and delicate silver rivets. You really will be pretty in pink wearing these.

These shoes will do all the work for you. Pair with simple tailoring or an elegant white dress.

I love the 60s vibe of these shoes, with their metallic finish and low block heel.

An easy way to wear fuchsia pink. Pair these dreamy feather-trimmed heels with subdued navy or utilitarian denim.

A summer classic, these gorgeous gladiator sandals will be your failsafe for seasons to come. This earthy tan leather goes with everything (but works especially well with white).

These stunning tangerine mules would look wonderful paired with bright cobalt blue.

A ladylike heel (and it doesn’t get more genteel than a kitten heel!) can take a graphic print. This comic-book style pattern certainly gives this shoe some Kepow!
