Take a risk and try a adding pair of quirky shoes to your outfit

Take a risk and try a adding pair of quirky shoes to your outfit

Quirky shoes pull double duty; they put a smile on your face and add personality to your outfit. Here are some fun pairs to help you get a feel for this alternative summer micro trend.

These Topshop boots take the sock boot trend that one step further by actually looking like a pair of socks. These boots will punctuate even the mot sombre of outfits!

Mojito striped sock boots, €38 (reduced from €68) at Topshop

Bimba & Lola always offers something different. These sandals are a riot of colour and texture. What’s not to love?

This pair of leather sliders are nothing if not quirky. They may fall into the “ugly shoe” bracket too. You decide?

A pair of bright tasseled sandals just scream holiday time. The colours of these Mango flats are gorgeous and vibrant, and the tassels have a really fun, carefree vibe to them.

Floral trainers, with a bow… it doesn’t get much more contrasting than that. Utilitarian trainers coupled with pretty florals and feminine bows will certainly add a point of difference to your look.
