Are you a heels or flats kind of girl?

Last Updated on 30th September 2014 We’ve all been there – standing in front of the full length mirror with a heel on one foot and a flat on the other, pacing back and forth trying to decide which one to pair with our outfit for the evening. If we wear flats, we won’t be as tall but at least we will be comfortable and running for the last train home will be a possibility. On the other hand, if we wear heels, our legs will be elongated and we will have better posture all evening. In the end, we decide to wear heels but carry our flats just in case we need to give our feet a rest towards the end of the night. How many of you can relate? Heels v flats is an endless dilemma – one which the boys will never fully understand – which is why Westfield has released a short film all about it. How clever! Directed by Sean Frank, the Heels v Flats video is a great short film which shows that you can have just as much fun in flats as you can in heels, and we urge you to watch it to see what we – and Westfield – are talking about. What do you guys think of the video? Fellow bloggers – why don’t you share the video with your readers and Twitter followers with the hashtag #heelsvflats to spread the “you can have just as much fun in flats as you can in heels” word? You never know, it might catch on and the likes of Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin may be forced to make even more flat dancing shoes! In the meantime, check out the official Westfield blog (Pulse) to get some heels v flats inspiration… Sponsored […]

Get Alexa Chung’s Carven/flats look

Last Updated on 27th January 2014 As we learnt last week while watching the latest Chanel Couture show, heels are pretty much a thing of the past as it’s all about flats, baby! Alexa Chung is one lady who didn’t need Karl Lagerfeld to convince her to step out in flats, as she’s been rocking the heel-less trend for years, which is probably why she does it so well. One of her latest looks is a perfect example of this, hence why we are more than happy to admit to stealing her style. It isn’t the cheapest of outfits this week, but both Carven dress and Charlotte Olympia flats can be classed as “investment pieces” that can be worn season after season. Winner! Broderie anglasie kiwi-print dress, £570, Carven available at Matches Kitty flat slippers, £458.53, Charlotte Olympia available at Far Fetch [Image]

Steep vs. Cheap: Leopard-print flats

Last Updated on 30th June 2016 Gone are the days when heels were an absolute must, and sporting flats confined you to the naughty corner. Now, it seems comfort and style can sit side-by-side, and our heel-ravaged feet couldn’t be happier! But, like most ‘sensible’ things, flats don’t have to spell B-O-R-I-N-G. No. Splashed in leopard-print, we can’t get enough of this week’s Steep.vs.Cheap loafers, and we’ve even done the leg work to track down the best buys to suit all budgets. In at the steep end; the Michael Kors Jesyln slip-ons (£275) are a winner if you’re looking to spend the pennies. Crafted in luxurious calf hair and leather, these classic beauties will work wonders to amp up an off-duty look. But, if you’re perspiring at the thought of parting with so many pounds, then fear not! We’ve hunted down the perfect high street alternative at Oasis (£28) that’ll have you looking equally as stylish – even when it’s a jeans-and-tee kinda day – for a fraction of the price! Will you save or splurge? Steep: Michael Kors Jeslyn slip-ons, £275, available at Zalando. Cheap: Leopard-print loafers, £28, available at Oasis.

Would you use foot numbing spray to avoid wearing flats?

Last Updated on 19th December 2013 At the height of a heel addiction (pardon the pun), its surprising what some women will do to fill the Choo. After all, sporting flats is so not fashion, dahling! Well, that was until loafers and slippers decided to take over the footwear landscape, and turn the heels-only rule on its head. But, spending all day tottering around in luscious lace-up heels can only mean three things: crushing pain, throbbing soles, and not to mention, a hefty podiatry bill. Not forgetting we exist in an app-for-everything time, a nifty spray to cancel out heel-induced pain has been invented. Interested? So are we. Jezebel reported on Heel No Pain (geddit?), the brainchild of Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth,  that works by numbing the feet, so you don’t feel the painful effects of rocking those generously heeled Louboutin’s over the course of a day. Sounds mind numbingly (sorry, we just had to) absurd, but apparently it works. Speaking to The Daily Mail, Dr. Haworth said: “Heel No Pain is basically a painkiller with heat treatment, so it is able to penetrate the skin. Unlike getting an injection, the spray doesn’t take away protective pain reflexes. The pain simply dissipates.” A self-confessed shoe addict, Haworth went on to say: ‘I suffer my own fair share of foot pain. I’m a fashionista at heart, and I like stylish shoes.” Cucumber scented, and with a price tag of $15 (£9) for a handbag-sized bottle, the FDA approved spray takes 15 minutes to get to work, and boasts a success on 70 per cent of people who try it. Pretty impressive, given that we’ve run out of solutions to stop our feet feeling separate from our body at the end of a night out. Could this spray under a […]

Shoe-spiration! 5 of our fave comfy flats!

Last Updated on 25th October 2021 Ladies, don’t fear flats – flats are our friends! Not only are they super-comfy, and not only do they make running for the bus or train just that little bit easier, but they also look pretty gosh darn good with just about anything. They might not be our first choice for Glastonbury and other such muddy festivals, but when it comes to choosing a comfy pair of footwear for a brisk walk around London, a casual commute to the office, or a Cara Delevingne style tomboy chic look, they are there for us in their hundreds. To save you time, we’ve looked through those aforementioned hundreds and chosen five of our current favourite flats: 1. – Kate Middleton knows how powerful and leg-elongating a good nude heel can be, but that doesn’t mean a nude flat isn’t powerful either. Au contraire, this pointed flat is as elegant as it is versatile – we challenge you to find a harder working flat! Oasis metal insert pointed flat shoes, £38 2. – Princess Jasmine, eat your heart out. These rich, Arabian nights inspired deluxe flats from the shoe gurus at Jimmy Choo will have everyone green with envy when they clap eyes on them. A true footwear investment that is worth every penny and will see you through the hot summer days in style. Jimmy Choo Bahar gold and turquoise sandals, £995 £697 3. – Want to exude that casual, effortless, air of fashion confidence that Alexa Chung does while incorporating your love of embellishment all in one go? Why don’t you try these gorgeous black loafers on for size? ASOS moonbeam flat shoes, £45 £31.50 4. – If top models and pop singers can make sneakers look cool, and if the fashion big guns like […]

Steep vs. Cheap: Pointed red flats

Last Updated on 2nd August 2013 Need a break from heels? After waxing lyrical about the ultra-comfrotable fashion sneaker, we’re moving onto something a little brighter, and chicer. Enter the eye-popping pointed flat pump. A city-stroller’s take on doing pointed heels sans painful feet; we’re a little bit in love with the romantically rich red colour and the overall Parisian vibe these pumps exude. Looking for an investment buy, then look no further than the Jenni Kayne d’orsay flats. Their buttery suede existence, pillar-box red colour and foot-flattering form are making us want to go on the heel fast, and were already dreaming about pairing these beauties with dark skinny jeans, a simple tee and a spacious tote for livening up an off-duty look. But as gorgeous as these Jenni Kayne flats are, at £306.57 they’re set to pinch the pocket. Don’t sweat it though, because we’ve found an equally shop-worthy pair for a fraction of the price! Head to high street haunt Zara, where you can snap up a look-alike version of the d’orsay flats for a mere £19.99! Saving you money whilst keeping you stylish, it’s what we do best. Steep: Jenni Kayne D’Orsay pumps, £306.57, available at Shopbop Cheap: Pointed vamp shoe, £19.99, available at Zara

Keep calm and wear flats…

Last Updated on 20th November 2012 It’s official. Flats are the new black. We thought a couple of pigs would have to fly before Victoria would be seen in a pair of flats but lo and behold the Queen of stilettos ditched her killer heels for a pair of brogues….and we have to admit she pulled it off extremely well. She’s not the only one….more and more of the celebs we know and love for their sky-high Louboutins are now sky-falling (pun intended) to the ground gracefully and opting for “comfort” over “glamour”. So why the change? We’re not quite sure but we certainly approve! Who says Beauty doesn’t always have to equal pain you know…. Now on to the important stuff. Where to buy a great pair of flats? Right now we’re loving the “tab shoe”. A great addition to your shoe collection for the new season. These mustard beauties by Stylistpick caught our eye along with the snake version too. Now we can’t say we’re the biggest fan of brogues to be honest but we are partial to a loafer or two especially these leather loafers by J.W. Anderson for Topshop.

Tuesday Shoesday: Hats off to Flats!

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 As we welcome with open arms the long-awaited intervention of the glorious sun into grey British weather, the other highly anticipated intervention is a fashionable one; a fashionable and  comfortable one in fact. Let us introduce the new season shoe-crush: the Comfort Sandal. You may frown upon this concept at first, thinking they fall into Scholl territory, but, one glance at the spring/summer 2012 catwalks and you’ll realise that even the designers were crushing on the heelless shoe. Championed at Christopher Kane in the form of pool sandals, and dearly accepted by the fashion clique, we knew straight off flats were the new high. Metallic soles with black leather straps and Perspex upper detailing showed up at 3.1 Phillip Lim, whilst Alexander Wang put out the lugged rubber sole, perforated lambskin Karlie sandal we instantly fell head over flats in love with (pun intended). Although leaning towards the season’s prominent sporty trend, Kane paired his with pretty florals and glistening brocade minis and 3.1 Phillip Lim thought nothing of the Comfort Sandal looking equally desirable with Easter egg pastels. It’s no longer a crime to omit heels from your outfit, especially when the alternative looks this good! Channel the trend with our hot-to-trot Comfort Sandal picks and give your over-worked, over-heeled feet a well-deserved summer break! 1. Pastiche Metallic Sandals, £70, available at Topshop 2. 3.1 Phillip Lim Mirrored Metallic Sandals, £335, available at My Theresa 3. Ann Demeulemeester women’s Camoscio Skeletal Sandals, £600, available at LN-CC 4. Senso Indiana Patent Strapped Sandals, £125, available at ASOS 5. Alexander Wang Karlie Flat Sandals, £257.72, available at Shopbop 6. Givenchy Virginia Biker Glitter Sandals, £515, available at My Theresa 7.

Chic Shoegasms: Christian Louboutin Pigalle leather flats

Definitely worth splurging on! Christian Louboutin Pigalle leather flats, £625 available at Matches.

When we first clapped eyes on Stefano Pilati’s spring 2009 footwear, we weren’t too sure… then we got used to the cage shoe and before we knew it, we were looking for inexpensive alternatives. And now? We’ve fallen for a softer, much flatter version. These suede pumps from Belle by Sigerson Morrison won’t exactly keep the feet dry so we might have to wait until we see a sign of the sun again before we can come up with an excuse to purchase them, but they’re bound to be much more comfortable for our tootsies. $220 from Shopbop.

Shopping: French Sole “Season” flats

While I love spring and the warm weather it brings, I haven’t managed to find the time to get a pedicure. By this, I mean that my toes are staying hidden in ballet flats until I get myself over to a salon!

5 Ways to Add Luxury to Your Style

Last Updated on 12th August 2022 Everyone has their unique style and adores what they see in the mirror. However, there may come a time when you want to add a little more luxury to your ensemble. From luxury accessories to handbags and sunglasses, there are plenty of options to choose from. The best outfits are usually the ones that make people do a double-take. You walk around shopping malls thinking about what other people are wearing and admiring their style. If you want to stand out from the crowd while looking classy and comfortable in your skin, you need to choose what best suits your taste and preferences. If you want to give your style an expensive glow-up, here are a few ways that can make your outfits look luxurious no matter how much money you have in the bank. Wear luxury accessories If you don’t like to shop around for luxurious brands, and you’re only looking to add a little something to your style, opting for luxury accessories would be the best option. Investing in new jewelry pieces is one of the most straightforward steps to add luxury to your style. From diamonds to pearls and minimalistic gems, make sure it complements your outfit choices. For instance, if you want to follow the latest trends you should consider adding luxury pearls to your jewelry collection. Consider the grading system when choosing the right pearls. You can opt for AAA pearl earrings or higher quality, which will guarantee that you’re getting only the finest cultured and real pearls. If you prefer minimalistic clothes, wearing the perfect necklace or earrings can help to give your style the sparkle you need to elevate your whole look. Choose expensive materials If you already have a certain style you like, you don’t have […]

Match or Clash: Choosing a Color Palette for Your Outfit and Accessories

Last Updated on 23rd June 2022 While we all love the idea of a color-coordinated capsule closet that follows the perfect palette with no compromise, we all love colors outside of our chosen palette and we should be able to easily embrace them! Because we all have color preferences that fall outside of any given palette, we recommend that instead of creating a color-coordinated capsule closet, that you have fun and show off your fashion skills by learning how to integrate any color you’re loving on at the moment into any outfit by making per-outfit palettes around them. You may have just bought some colorful and cute sandals for women in anticipation of summer or you may have a pretty new green blouse for a garden party. But if you want to make sure that you do them justice and avoid a jarring clash of colors, we’re here to show you how it’s done! Categorizing Colors  Building your outfit on a category of colors will help guide you through your closet and will be the best way to avoid a clash. Always consider starting off with a category that covers a wide range of colors like cool tones, warm tones, jewel tones, pastels or brights! Once you’ve found a compelling category, picking specific colors and shades within it will depend on what you’re dressing for and sometimes even where or what they will be used for within the ensemble. (For instance, as a base color or as an accent color — but we’ll get into that next!) No matter what, picking your palette should be easier after this step! Pick the Base Color(s) of Your Outfit Your base colors will normally be neutrals, and will normally coincide with the colors that you choose when you’re buying essentials. These are colors […]

Getting Married? Here Are the Must-Have Dresses for Every Event

Last Updated on 9th June 2022 Are you getting married? The gleeful anticipation of your upcoming nuptials is celebrated in many ways. From engagement parties and bridal showers to the big day, every bride needs to look her best in every moment. While the gown gets a lot of attention, it’s far from the only piece of bridal fashion you’ll be shopping for. Here are some tips for finding the perfect dresses for every bridal event. The Engagement Party Your first foray into wedding celebrations will begin the moment he pops the question. Traditionally, weddings are planned over many months or even a couple of years. An engagement party allows the couple to celebrate their big news now and officially kick off the wedding planning phase of the event. These parties also serve as an ice breaker to introduce the two families. Waiting until the wedding day to make important introductions can cause some ruffled feathers and undue stress on the newlywed couple. It’s best to start these introductions early so that everyone can come together and celebrate happily on the big day. The engagement party is typically a cocktail party, giving the bride-to-be full permission to wear a fun and flirty dress with an above-the-knee cut. We recommend avoiding anything overtly sexy, seductive, or revealing. You want to make a great first impression on extended family members that you’ll be meeting for the first time. And you want to send a clear message that you are committed to your soon-to-be husband.  For the perfect engagement party dress, stick with something semi-formal that shows off your personality. And then, dress it up with a little fun by choosing a fun color or a little sparkle. An A-line cocktail dress that has a little twirl in the skirt can be the […]

Step Into a New Season in Style – Top Footwear Styles to Shop this Spring

Last Updated on 21st April 2022 Are you ready for bold colors, cute sandals, and sky-high platforms? It’s time to trade in those heavy winter boots for something light, fun, and colorful this spring. So let’s dive in and see what’s trending this season.  Dopamine dressing – a new trend only for the brave  It goes without saying that black is a classy color with which you simply can not go wrong. Usually, whatever you are wearing, black shoes – the right style of course – will go with it. However, a new trend that is gaining mainstream popularity is the one called ‘dopamine dressing’. As the name suggests, it’s exciting, bold, and takes some guts to pull off. In a nutshell, it refers to colorful footwear (from red and orange to cooler hues, like green and steel blue) that serves to uniquely complement your outfit and accessories. In other words, it brings out the colors you’re wearing – and, needless to say, draws attention. An example would be pairing a neon outfit with mauve pumps. This is the type of trend that top names like Versace and Stella McCartney couldn’t wait to embrace this spring. So if you’re willing to try something fresh and bold this spring, this is just the thing for you.   Breaking the rules with sporty sandals  “The athleisure trend lives on and sporty sandals are set to be popular this Spring, as seen across the Spring/Summer catwalks of Hermes and Chloe, notes Katie Eastwood, the Style Ambassador at Stitch Fix UK. Chunky soles are back, which might remind you of the 80s and 90s. What makes them extra special, however is that they are combined with comfortable neoprene fabric and velcro straps, which makes them extremely pleasant to wear. “These sandals epitomize our want for […]

These Are the Best Spring Blazers Period — And We Want Them All

Last Updated on 9th February 2022 A great way to transition from winter to spring is with a blazer – it’s an easy way to stay warm and look trendy all at the same time. But how do you wear a blazer? What should you wear underneath it? And what about your shoes? We’ve got all of your questions answered right here along with an edit of our best blazers for spring.  1. Choose the right blazer for you. The first step in learning how to wear a blazer is picking out one that fits well and looks good on you. A blazer that’s too long can make you look frumpy, while one that’s too short might make you look like you borrowed it from your younger sister. There are lots of women’s spring blazers on offer and if you take the time to try on blazers of all shapes and sizes you won’t regret it. The main goal is to get an idea of which styles look flattering on your body type. Once you have this knowledge, finding the right blazers moving forward will be a lot easier. Essie Prince of Wales Blazer available at Reiss 2. Pick out the right outfit for your blazer. Once you have your blazer, it’s time to think about what outfit to wear with it! It can be worn with just about anything from jeans to dresses – the only thing that matters is how it looks together as a whole. It’s also important to think about how you want your blazer to fit into your outfit.  For a casual chic look, try pairing your blazer with denim shorts or jeans and a t-shirt.

No, You Don’t Need A Designer Budget To Nail French Fashion

Last Updated on 1st October 2021 There’s something so appealing about Parisian style right? It’s timeless, sophisticated, and oozes effortlessness.  The great news is that with a little know-how, it’s also effortless and easy to replicate. Even better you don’t have to break the bank! Just embrace some style rules, invest in some signature staple pieces, and voila! You’re good to go…. Here we tackle how you can do french fashion on a budget, as well as the French clothing brands that should be on your radar. Finally, we’ll finish off with our edit of the french fashion staples you need to inject some ‘ooh la la’ in your wardrobe. How to dress like a french woman on a budget? 1. Buy during the sales when everything is out of season.  This is a great way to nab a bargain. We snapped up a gorgeous Reiss jumper worth £100 for £30 out of season! 2. Check out second-hand charity stores in more upmarket areas.  Charity stores in wealthier areas tend to have quite a few designer pieces. When you’ve got a bit of time on your hands, visit a few of these stores to see what gems you can find.  3. Shop preloved Preloved clothes are another way to get quality pieces at a fraction of the price. Our favourite online preloved stores are Resellfridges Vestiaire and Cudoni. 4. H&M, Mango & Zara  Head to H&M, Mango, or Zara to find items that are similar to the designer pieces you’re lusting after. All three of these stores have stylish and affordable clothes that you can mix and match with higher-end pieces.  5. Forget the trends and think timeless  Coco Chanel’s wardrobe would look right at home today. That’s the beauty of timeless fashion. It’s long-lasting and trendless. Invest in clothing or footwear […]

How to wear a halter dress

Last Updated on 8th September 2021 A trend that has been popular amongst the crowd for decades and never gets old is the stunning halter dresses. There are different ways of carrying your versatile halter dress, and you can tweak it for your ease and style preference. You can tie its straps at the back of your neck in great ways, including bows. They are the perfect style statement when you require something elegant or for a fun, relaxed look. To make these dresses look elegant and eye-catching, you need to follow some basic rules and rituals to carry this timeless piece.  Go for the less is a more approach  Your halter dress has to be the center of attention because of its unique fit, style, and cuts. It is vital to overpower the look with heavy jewelry pieces because they drive all the attention away from the dress. Try to pair your dress with minimal jewelry that will help elevate your look by giving it the perfect finish instead of overwhelming it. The ideal jewelry would be a small pendant or simple studs. Regardless of the color or style, make sure you opt for smaller jewelry pieces to prevent overload. If you feel your dress needs a touch of extra jewelry, instead of going for bold pieces on the neck, try to pull of layered bracelets. These perfectly compliment halter dresses and help show off your brilliant collar bones to the crowd.  Select your Footwear wisely  Try to experiment with different types of heels instead of flats or flip-flops. It’s a common myth that people need to wear high heels to pull off the look. A person can look equally stunning with kitten heels and wedges, as long as they don’t overwhelm the entire look. Heels with shimmer or […]

Festive Pieces To Wear On Christmas Day. No Christmas Jumpers Allowed.

Last Updated on 8th December 2020 Let’s be honest we’ve been at home waaay too much this year. And we’re getting kinda sick of spending most of our time in loungewear. So, while Christmas isn’t going to be quite the same, we’re definitely taking the opportunity to get glammed to the nines! We’re talking lush velvet, sparkly sequins and blinged out accessories. Hands up if you feel the same? Great. Ok, the question now is; what to wear? Hmm, well, it depends on what you’ve got planned… Staying cosy and warm indoors? Consider a pretty top paired with a metallic pleated skirt or velvet trousers and accessorise with shimmering jewellery. Prefer to grab an al fresco lunch with the fam? Opt for a luxe, jewel toned suit teamed with an eye-catching coat (think Nicole Kidman in The Undoing). Or, perhaps you’ve got an intimate dinner-for-two planned? Then only a gorgeous dress complemented with killer heels will do.  Whatever you decide, make sure it’s eye catching and, of course, fabulous!  Maddie Velvet Puff Sleeve Top, available at Boden Siddal Velvet Trousers, available at Boden Rosebury Velvet Trousers, available at Boden Fendi FF tassel earrings, available at Farfetch Sophie Buhai Everyday pearl 18kt gold-plated earrings available at mytheresa Rita Velvet Midi Dress, available at Boden Charlotte Tie Neck Blouse available at Boden Red Star and Moon Drop Earring, available at Lovisa Kitty Smocked Neck Blouse, available at Boden Kingsley Velvet Jacket, available at Boden Antonia Slingbacks, available at Boden Isabella Top available at Boden Oscar de la Renta Crystal clip-on earrings, available at mytheresa Natalia Slingbacks, available at Boden Cassidy Pleated Skirt, available at Boden Amy Embellished Flat, available at Boden Fenella Midi Dress, available at Boden Jennifer Behr Pluto star drop earrings available at Farfetch Elizabeth Wrap Skirt, available at Boden Hampton Shoe Boots, available at […]

How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe?

Last Updated on 17th January 2022 When you look in your closet, do you see hundreds of items but nothing that strikes you? Are you sometimes stuck jamming pieces together that you don’t really like, just to have something to wear? Do you spend what feels like hours rooting through your closet in search of the one thing you want? Capsule wardrobes can be the perfect way to solve these closet problems. A capsule wardrobe is a seasonal selection of favorite clothes that can be worn together in many different combinations. For a no-hassle outfit, all you need to do is mix and match the contents of your capsule. From basic tops to killer dresses to unique accessories like silicone rings, a capsule wardrobe allows you to have it all by having just enough.  A capsule wardrobe can revolutionize your closet through the virtues of simplicity and thriftiness. Here’s a simple 8-step plan to begin your capsule wardrobe project.  1. Clear out your closet.  First, take everything out of your closet. You’re not getting rid of it all, you’re just cutting down what actually lives in your closet to a more manageable selection. Some of it may go back in if it becomes part of your capsule. As for the rest, store it if you can’t bear to part with it or sell/donate it if you can.  2. Choose a base color.  Generally, your base color will be either black or navy. You can use both, but you should generally avoid wearing them together. A good capsule wardrobe is all about maximizing your number of outfit combinations.  3. Grab some neutral color basics.  Next, you’re going to need some flexible, neutral basics that can tie a lot of different outfits together. Many of these will be black or navy, depending […]

The Ugly Truth About Your Favourite Shoes Revealed

Last Updated on 30th October 2020 Who doesn’t like getting dressed up in a nice outfit and putting on a pair of fancy shoes for a night out on the town? We’d love to finally pull out our fave heels from the back of the closet to go to a nice dinner or a night of dancing. However, it could be these shoes that are actually leaving long-term damage to our bodies.  As young women, we rarely think about the consequences of what we are doing. How will that decision affect us 40 years from now? Here’s exactly how your favorite shoes could be damaging your body so you can have a brighter, pain-free future.  Stiletto Heels Oh, the sexy stiletto heel! Every girl has a pair of these hidden in her closet somewhere, dreaming of the day she can walk confidently in them. While these shoes make your legs look amazing, they can leave quite the impression on your body.  Stilettos are known to cause osteoarthritis in your knees, back problems, and damage to the Achilles tendon from the shift of your weight while standing and walking.  Flats Who would have thought your adorable ballet flats could leave you with long-term damage? Unfortunately, this happens to be the case for many people. They believe since they aren’t wearing heels that they are avoiding any damage to their feet.  Flats can actually take a huge toll on your feet. In the short-term, they can cause blisters, corns, and calluses from the friction, especially if your feet tend to sweat. In the long-term, you could end up with flat feet due to lack of arch support.  Pointed Toed Shoes The pointed toed shoe is seen as sleek and sophisticated, especially when paired with a heel. Many women opt for this shape […]

Snap Up These Not To Be Missed Bargains!

Last Updated on 5th June 2020 We’ve written at great length about how to tackle the end of year sales. From making a list of the items you need to buying as much as possible online and of course, wearing comfy shoes when you do decide to tackle the shops. But one tip we haven’t touched upon in great detail is that, when shopping the sales, always purchase as many items as possible that can be worn in the next season. This one tip alone can save you hundreds if not thousands of pounds, especially if you have a penchant for designer pieces.

Now when looking out for classic spring pieces ahead of time, when it comes to colours and prints, you can never really go wrong with blush pink, powder blue, florals or polka dots.

Contemporary Spring Essentials To Complete Your New Season Wardrobe

Last Updated on 21st March 2020 To think that in just less than 2 weeks we’ll be in March, is just mind-boggling. It literally feels as if it was Jan 1st just yesterday. Between the drama of Brexit and the overall chaos in British politics in general, there’s just been way too much going on to even consider the rate at which time is flying by. It’s safe to say, before we know it, we’ll be knee-deep in summer, parading around in t-shirts and shorts preferably on the beach, and ideally with a Brexit deal in place. In the meantime we have other important matters to think about such as our spring wardrobe. Yep, for the best in escapism you can’t beat planning your wardrobe for the season ahead. So, here we highlight our top essentials for spring. A versatile staple, the feminine silk shirt is the perfect am to pm piece. Style effortlessly for working days with tailored trousers or with jeans and flats at the weekend. Silk Shirt, £120 available at Jigsaw Any excuse to buy a new bag always works for us. We’re loving this spacious leather tote and while we’ve played it safe with navy, make a statement with the red or yellow version. Bridget Leather Tote, £159 available at Jigsaw Considering there’s still a chill in the air during early spring, we recommend opting for this Breton light knit to stay cost. What’s so special about this sweater however, is its subtle lace detail at the back. Breton Lace Back Sweater, £98 available at Jigsaw You can never have too many pairs of jeans. This season we’re still loving high-waist denim (will we ever stop? we’re not sure…) especially these barrel leg jeans. Go retro with a slogan tee, trainers and a cross-body bag for a great […]

The Best Baby Shoe Styles For 2019

Last Updated on 15th July 2019 There might not be anything in the world as cute as baby shoes. Teeny-tiny varieties of your favorite footwear are enough to make any heart melt. Like kid and adult fashion, styles for baby shoes change through the years, so if you want your baby to look fly, you need to stay ahead of next season’s looks. Here is a peak at what’s likely to come in style in 2019, so you can invest early in upcoming looks. First, a Message About Baby Shoes As heart-breakingly cute as it is to see your infant dressed up like an adult — fresh kicks and all — you should be careful how often you strap shoes to your little one’s feet. Studies on footwear and babies show that too much time spent in shoes is bad for your kid’s development. There are several reasons for this: The feet are covered in 200,000 nerve endings. This makes your baby’s feet critical sensory organs for detecting and understanding the world around them. By covering up your baby’s feet in shoes, you are limiting the amount of information they can receive — the temperatures and textures they feel, etc. — and thus hampering their ability to perceive their environment and learn from it. Baby’s bones remain soft for several months. You likely know that your baby’s skull is soft for a while after birth, but the truth is that all their bones will remain pliable for up to a year and a half. By shoving your baby into shoes, you could be forcing their foot bones to align and grow improperly, impacting their ability to stand, move and fit into footwear for the rest of their life. Footwear can decrease coordination, especially at early stages of development. Because shoes […]

8 Great Travel Bags for Women on the Go

Last Updated on 22nd February 2018 Buying a travel bag isn’t like buying a regular handbag. It needs to be strong enough to withstand the pressures of transit, but it also needs to be lightweight and portable so that it won’t hurt your shoulders after several layovers; it should come with plenty of pouches and compartments for easy organization, but it also can’t weigh you down. If you’re looking for a magic bag that will satisfy all of these requirements, here are just a few potentials!   1. The Billie Bag Available in both black and light gray, the Billie Bag is a bucket bag that will look fashionable on your arm while still being a wise choice for travel. Its dual-color rope straps are fully adjustable, so they aren’t just for show, and its removable base board can be used or discarded at will depending on your needs. To top it all off, the Billie Bag has an internal lining that will protect your possessions from heat, cold, moisture and shock. Why wouldn’t you buy this handbag? 2. Prene Large Backpack Neoprene bags are an excellent choice for travelers. Neoprene is the same material used for things like wet suits and laptop cases, so it’s not something that will wear and tear easily. It also has natural temperature-controlling properties so that the candy bars you have stashed in your bag will be less likely to melt after a long day. When you just want a plain, sturdy bag that will get the job done, consider the Prene Large Backpack. 3. The X Bag This oversized bag might not clear customs, but it’s perfect for dashing around town when you have a lot of things to carry with you. Mothers can tuck away their bottles, bibs and diapers; businesswomen can […]

What To Wear To A Summer Wedding?

Last Updated on 7th June 2017 While we do love a good wedding, we’re not too keen on the “outfit anxiety” that comes with wedding season. Admittedly however, dressing for a summer, as opposed to a winter wedding, is so much easier. Weddings in colder months not only limit wardrobe choices, but there’s also the additional hassle of finding suitable outerwear. Yep, the beauty of summer weddings is definitely the huge number of outfit choices on offer. But, if you’ve received a ton of wedding invitations this season, deciding what to wear can be a tad overwhelming. Here we highlight three failsafe wedding guest options not only guaranteed to turn heads but understated enough not to upstage the bride, which as we can all agree is a major fashion faux pas.  Bright colour always makes a statement. If you’re not too keen on green, consider canary yellow or fuchsia pink as an alternative. The beauty of a simple cocktail dress is in it’s ability to be easily recycled with accessories for a completely new look. Killer heels are a must for an air of sophistication. Accessorize with a stylish hat that suits your personality and add a designer womens watch to your outfit for an elegant touch.   If you intend to spend a large chunk of the evening on the dance floor, then the maxi-dress is a must. Why? Well, the length of the maxi-dress ensures comfy flats perfect for dancing the night away can be worn without being seen. Nail two big trends of the season with a cut-out, floral option (as seen in the picture above). Drop earrings are optional. O.K, so wearing white, is slightly controversial, however we’re of the belief that you can just about get away with a white jumpsuit especially if you’re a lucky enough to be invited […]
