High heels have their place, but when you want optimum comfort without compromising on style, these low-level wonders are your summer go-tos
The statement sandals
Stand out in sandals with that extra fashion kick: the type of flats you can slip on in place of heels for a summer garden party, or for cocktails al fresco in a sunny destination. Whether you choose prints, studs or show-stopping hardware, these are the compliment-worthy styles you’ll never want to take off.
The white trainers
White trainers have become a sartorial sensation in recent seasons, acting as the perfect dressed-down antidote to maximalist floral dresses or statement-making trousers. They also look great with simple jeans and a blazer, making them a truly versatile addition to your year-round wardrobe.
The on-trend trainers
Got your white trainers sorted? It’s time to up your game with standout styles ranging from on-trend chunky looks to mesmerising metallics. Keep your outfit slightly plainer with these designs – a fantastic pair of ecru jeans or denim skirt will complement the shoes without contending for the limelight.
