I have become unreasonably obsessed recently with just one thing, Gwenda pointed courts from Topshop
Lets be honest, they are dead ringers for the equally covetable French 75 stiletto from my favourite brand Whistles, but at an infinitely more affordable £58 and in a wider range of colours, Gwenda is a must buy. Pointed courts are ridiculously on-trend right now and look set to stay so into the next couple of seasons. The bang on trend brights, metallics and this graphic floral print (mostly) in strokable suede are just perfect for summer nights and winter brights.
It can’t have escaped your notice that flats are having a moment… whether it be ‘flatforms’, brogues, moccasins, low heeled loafers or the trend I’m tackling today, Smoking slippers.
Admittedly, it’s not a trend I’m 100% on board with – like everything in fashion there are some representations of the trend I like and others I’m not so keen on. Particularly for the ladies amongst us with shall we say longer feet, I think it’s key to look for one with a shorter upper, more akin to a ballet flat and that’s the style I prefer.
Given that it’s London Fashion Week as of today and there will be heels galore clicking across the pavements around Somerset house, I couldn’t help but let myself round up a few alternative options, imagining them on tired feet or tucked into bags running between shows.
