These shoes have been all over the fashion press lately. If there was an ‘It’ shoe this season, this would probably be it. I’ve always loved stripes – with white and red being my favourite colour combination. Stripes are classic, sophisticated and hark back to many a stylish decade.

These Tabitha Simmons linen silk stripe sandals in cream, red and black are bold, stylish and scream Parisian chic.

The slim black heel measures a vertiginous five inches and is balanced by an open toe and thin black leather front strap and buckle. The light silk material might not be the most practical of fabrics, but then again, who cares about practicality when you have shoes this gorgeous?

These shoes should be the focus of an outfit, so keep everything else minimal – plain black cropped trousers or jeans and a simple boat-neck tee will more than suffice.  Alternatively, go for the full Parisian look with a striped tee or short-sleeved sweater.

They’re the ideal heels to take on a city break to continental Europe. Well, a girl can dream, non?
