Trend of the week: Seasonal, stylish shoes


It’s the time of year for making an entrance and what better way to do so than with festive footwear. This season’s elaborate edit is definitely one for the Santa list. Glitter kitten heels, lamé slippers and satin mules remind us that comfort needn’t involve compromise. As for the more stalwart shoe fans, Jimmy Choo’s bejewelled sandals and courts (some featuring mix and match gems) inspire us to believe in magic. Prepare to sprinkle that fashion fairy dust!

Style hacks


Pair with capri trousers and a sharp tux jacket.


Wear with an off-the-shoulder top and flared trousers or a cami dress and tee combo.

Kitten heels

Offset the dainty air with a pair of vintage frayed jeans and a lace or velvet top.

Strappy sandals

Any dress or skirt with a midi to mini hem –– the ankle is the star of the show!
