SPRING/SUMMER 2014 CATWALK TRENDS – FROM THE HIGH STREET PT 2

If you liked part 1 , you’ll be happy to see that it’s time for me to show you the other 5 of the top 10 catwalk trends as found on the high street.

Sporty

Dune

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An easy, comfortable summer sandal with a sporty white sole. Work this trend without going full-on sporty with trainers.

Topshop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re a heels girl, this quilted platform bootie is the way to look sporty without losing your height advantage.

Timberland

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Timberland boots are back on-trend, but perhaps you don’t think their classic wheat nubuck style is for you. This sneaker version in sleek black with a pink pop is the low-profile alternative.

Lizard

River Island

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Black and white combinations are a strong way to wear neutrals without looking dull. This open-waisted bootie has a lizard print rather than a scaly texture. Wear it with black opaque tights this spring, for an effortlessly stylish look.

Topshop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This one cleverly combines the orange trend from part 1 with the lizard look. Chunky flatform sandals are a key look this season, seen everywhere from Marni to the high street. Oh and it is acceptable to wear socks or tights with sandals now.

H by Hudson

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These ankle boots offer a more traditional textured snake look, and are perfect for the early Spring chill. The tan-coloured stacked heel prevents this style from appearing too heavy for warmer months.

Ankle Wraps

& Other Stories

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This court shoe with added ankle strapping combines three trends in one: green, lizard, and ankle wraps. & Other Stories really know how to interpret catwalk looks and make them wearable and affordable.

Nike

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Studio Wrap Pack is suitable for dance and yoga, but can be worn in the street when combined with the leather flat (as pictured). This is the premium version, in a pretty silver and black combination. I’d be tempted to wear this as a fashion option, and sack off the exercise!

Dorothy Perkins

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This summery coral suede heel from DP will be flattering with its multiple straps. Go casual with a denim dress, or dress up with something slinky.

White

Birkenstock

 

 

 

 

 

 

People, Birkenstocks are making a big comeback this season. If you buy one pair of basic sandals, make them these. White sandals can make even the palest feet look a little tanned.

Poste Mistress

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This T-Bar is geek-chic turned feminine, with its high block heel and cute bronze ankle strap. A trendy heeled style without the stiletto wobble.

Zara

 

 

 

 

 

 

A classic monk shoe with an open waist for a little ventilation, with a chunky sole to keep you out of the grime. This style would easily complement Scandinavian-style tailoring from the likes of Cos and & Other Stories: think black attire in interesting texture combinations.

Bronze Age

Topshop

 

 

 

 

 

A classic silhouette, updated in bronze: this tassel loafer in a warm hue would be flattering with either bare legs or socks. The boyish look is going strong, but is made prettier in a metallic.

River Island

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is this the statement sandal of the season? All of that hardware creates an edgy, powerful look. Create serious, friendship altering shoe-envy with these nouveau gladiators.

Boo hoo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ballet pumps are a classic chic look, and a peep toe version is just what you need for spring and summer. Be on-trend with this sweetly-detailed bronze crackle version.
