Ordinarily when picking an outfit, you choose the dress, then shoes, and then the accompanying accessories. But every now and again, a pair of shoes catch our eye that are so spectacular they scream to be the stylish starting off point.
These statement heels by Camilla Skovgaard are super sexy and defiantly devilish, fusing the Danish designer’s signature architectural shapes with sleek, slick lines and guaranteeing the admiring glances from onlookers will be working from the feet up.
With 15cm cigarette-thin stiletto heels (don’t worry, the 4cm platform will make them a whole lot more wearable), these leather sandals are strictly for the fierce and fearless, but don’t let that scare you – we’ve got the perfect pieces to team with them that’ll have you looking wow from head to toe.
See below for our top picks to pair with your statement shoes for adorable spring style with achingly cool attitude…
Sure, leather trousers or a daring LBD would look great with Skovgaard’s hammer sandals, but it’s a little obvious, non? Instead, add an unexpected dose of pretty and pair them with Topshop’ cream chiffon dress. Featuring a gathered waist and a floral applique neckline, it’ll balance out the fierceness with fresh femininity.
Carry the hardened edge through to your handbag with Alexander Wang’s Tai leather box bag. Structured and lady-like with Wang’s signature cool, it oozes retro femininity with tough-luxe attitude.
For unexpected glam, finish the outfit with this black mock croc bangle from French Connection – it’ll pull in the toughness of the shoes and add a bit of subtle bling for balance.
