The average woman owns 20 pairs of shoes but wears only five of them regularly. Here are the five key styles that will work for you
A box-fresh pair of loafers is a new-season essential and this contemporary pair ticks all the trend boxes. The gold-tone hardware adds a focal point to any outfit. Take your pick from black or tan and wear through to autumn and beyond.
In recent years, trainers have climbed the ranks from gym-kit essential to fashion staple. Whether you’re doing the school run or meeting friends, this grey-plaid pair will smarten up all your off-duty looks. Wear with cropped trousers for maximum impact.
There’s no denying that minimalist slip-on shoes are having a moment, and graphic details are the newest update to the trend. The high-shine spherical heel on these black suede beauties makes them ideal for the day to night shift: just add a luxe pleated skirt and a velvet bag.
With eye-catching straps and comfy block heels, these pretty pumps are an easy way to add polish to everyday looks. Team with a floral-print midi dress, as pictured, for lunch with friends, or try with plaid trousers for a work look with a modern twist.
Now available in six skin-tone shades, ranging from light caramel (pictured) to espresso, these sleek courts are a must for a capsule shoe-drobe. Not only do they complement any outfit, from tapered joggers to a chic wrap dress, they also help to create the illusion of longer legs.
