Hot Summer Footwear

Clogs are the hottest trend this season as they add an edgy look to the flirty, frilly clothing that can be seen in fashion stores right now. This look was huge on the Chanel runway with lots of neutral tones leading the way. Love them or hate them – there’s no denying the clog trend promises to continue to be huge.

The military influence is another trend that was huge on the runway for Spring/Summer 2010. The overriding look is for clean-edged casual wear with a strong utilitarian feel, making this one of the most commercial looks for the season. To compliment the army green staple of clothing – wear chunky, strappy wedges for all day comfort, or lace up heels in tan/neutral colours.

Festival Footwear
We’re definitely seeing the rise of something known as ‘festival fashion’ – the funky, boho-inspired, slightly grungy style perfectly suited to the summer festival. Think Kate Moss at Glastonbury for inspiration, or our girl-crush Florence Welch.

High Performance
High Performance has been influenced from the easy layering of 90’s grunge. It’s all about mis-matched proportional layering worn with an ‘anything goes’ attitude. Team this casual, slouchy mood with a pair of heels to off-set the look.

Femme Fatale
There’s nothing better than a glam heel, and this season we will see glamour coming back in a big way, with lots of feminine, sexy heels. Go ladylike glam at the office and wear it with some equally pretty heels – we particularly love the bows on the back of these ‘Clara’ heels by Pepe Castell available at Scarpa – very ‘Madmen’!

Cut Outs
Laser cuts are another big feature for spring/summer footwear – a very modern, funky look, and great for early spring weather, as they also look great with tights while we wait for the warmer weather to hit.
