SPRING/SUMMER 2014 CATWALK TRENDS – FROM THE HIGH STREET PT 1

In October, I showed you the top 10 footwear trends from the SS14 catwalks.

For those with a normal shoe-shopping budget, you can now buy these trends from our Great British high streets (or on-line if you want to keep warm).

Orange

& Other Stories

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This may seem like a very difficult colour to wear, but picture these suede shoe-boots with some indigo jeans.

Office

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re feeling bolder, imagine these bright sandals with a flirty summer dress on a night out.

ASOS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Or for just a hint of this trend, try this easy chelsea boot.

Wooden Soles

Swedish Hasbeens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Swedish Hasbeens has become the go-to brand for wooden-soled footwear, and this style with its lace-edge detail is a flattering option.

New Look

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a simple upper on a classic platform wedge, you can’t go wrong with this New Look sandal.

& Other Stories

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With its monochrome animal-print heel, this is the must-have fashion version of a wooden-soled sandal.

Pieced Points

Charles Philip Shanghai

 

 

 

 

 

In wonderfully-clashing pink canvas with orange lizard-print faux leather, this pointed pump is guaranteed to brighten up your Spring.

Topshop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Western styling is influencing footwear this season, and this opened-up ankle boot will be practical from now until the weather gets hot. Wear with a black leather skirt for a rock and roll vibe.

ASOS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are not only cute and on-trend in about three different ways, but they also remind me of Cruella de Vil. Need I say more?

Green

& Other Stories

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the olden days, green was considered an unlucky colour for footwear. Now that anything goes, try these moccasins for a touch of effortless cool.

ASOS

 

 

 

 

 

These citrus sandals with their faceted heels are not for the palest of skin tones, but will look stunning on warmer-toned feet.

& Other Stories

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These khaki and black sandals offer a sexy twist on the military look. Warning: people may salute you.

Sculptural Heels

& Other Stories

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Apologies for featuring this brand so much, but they really have got all of the key trends covered this season. The convex curve gives a modern twist to a classic black suede court shoe.

Topshop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a punky fetish look with practical ventilation slits, look no further than Topshop. Oh and that heel, that heel!

Irregular Choice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look how far heel technology has come: we can even use garden gnomes to support our stride. Not to everyone’s taste, but Irregular Choice will continue to surprise us with their playful footwear.
