These are the five pairs of shoes that you need to buy right now. The game-changers. The investment pieces. The forever shoes...
These gold beauties by Robert Clergerie (£485) are top of my wish list. They would make EVERYTHING more special. Just imagine them in the summer with an old beaten up pair of Levi's, or now with lovely ribbed mens socks and a cropped flare. These make my heart beat faster!
These Gucci loafers definitely come under the investment bracket at £710 from Matches. Snakeskin shoes are the shoe of the moment and seen on all the fashion mafia at the shows. These would just get better with age and they have that whiff of sloaniness which is always stylish in it's own way. Think off duty Princess Diana.
These classic Roman Three Strap shoes from Vivienne Westwood (£365) are the pratical but cool everyday shoe. I love that they are a cross between a sweet ballet shoe and a bondage boot. They work well with sock or tights in winter and with bare legs and a flippy dress in the summer. These are the kind of shoes that once you bought, you don't know how you ever managed without them.
Brogues are eternally stylish and this pair by Zara are only £69.99, but look incredibly expensive. They have such great details; the metal capping on the heel, and the fringe overlay on the laces. Wear with dark boyfriend jeans or a cropped pair of tailored trousers for a more modern and effortless look.
There is a whole 70s vibe in fashion at the moment, and these knitted lurex pair by Robert Clergerie at Net-a-Porter (£355) are tugging at my heart strings. They would look amazing with flares, or a leather mini and a rollneck. All you need is a boyfriend in a band and you're set.
