Winter has arrived, but just because it’s been a bit cold and gloomy that doesn’t mean your outfits have to be. Here are a few of our favourite shoe trends to help you put your best foot forward.
Metallics are a great way to make your outfit shine – you can opt for a small detail or go full on metallic shimmer. It’s more than just silver and gold though – keep an eye out for glitz and glam in bright colours like pink, blue, and green as well.
Pink is one of this season’s hottest colours, from the blush “millennial pink” to bold neons. You’ll see it in metallics, animal prints and clashing with red and orange – this is a colour to really brighten up your winter.
