As a self-confessed shoe obsessive, I’ll admit that one of my favourite things about the transition between seasons is an excuse to buy new shoes; be it ‘barely there’ heels or a pair of pointed flats for the office, I love to regularly update my collection with new staple styles. Choosing the best additions for your wardrobe can be tricky though, especially if you’re working with a budget that’s more Zara than (Giuseppe) Zanotti — I know I am.
Just to make it more difficult, SS16 is bringing more variety to the high street than ever, with updated classics in spring-time shades and new styles that scream ‘straight off the catwalk’ — all in pretty palette of luxurious neutrals, classic monochromatic tones and even electric brights. From chunky mid-heel sling-backs to retro suede moccasins and super-strappy, detailed sandals, spring’s selection of footwear boasts choice, and offers up something for even the fussiest footwear fanatic.
If you’re more than a little overwhelmed by the summery selection of shoes, here’s my curated collection of the best new shoes you can buy right now (and there’s a selection in every shade).
If spring/summer’s new styles tell us anything, it’s that straps, laces and intricate tie-up details are here to stay. Adorning the likes of sandals, heels and flats, there’s a strappy shoe for everybody. I personally love the sexy, feminine edge that the subtle details add to your overall look, and I think high street shoes are really starting to compete with their catwalk competition.
I’ve curated this collection of footwear for you in every colour, to prove that there’s a pretty pair of new shoes for you in whichever shade you need. I’m always a fan of black but I’m planning on adding a few additions to my wardrobe, in the form of some red ghillie heels and a pastel-toned flats — a few pairs of neutral-toned gladiator sandals wouldn’t go a miss, either.
What do you think of the shoes I’ve chosen and which shades are your favourite for the transitional spring-to-summer season? Have you found a prettier pair? Let me know in the comments below.
