I’m Walking on Sunshine.


They're fabulous. They're sexy. They add zing to the most boring outfits (not that you have one!). We’re talking shoes…stilettos, strappy sandals, pumps, wedges, platforms and everything else in between. With hot sunny days ahead of us, here’s your easy guide to pairing the perfect shoes with your cute sundresses.

 


Sexy Wedges

Dazzle this summer with attention grabbing and sexy thick wedge platforms. Once again, animal print wedges are in, as well as colour block wedges as seen on fashion ramps all over the world. Nothing says ‘summer’ like espadrille woven wedge platforms, perfect and effortless.

Wedges go best with flowing maxi dresses in floral and geometric prints but you can also pair them with shift dresses, sheath dresses, peasant dresses as well as button-front woven dresses.

 

 

 

Strappy Sandals

This summer,strappy sandals with braided detail, multi-strap multi-tone designs, python prints, shiny accents, double buckles and knotted T-straps are all the rage. These styles, and strappy sandals in general,  go great with almost all types of summer dresses but they look extra chic with wrap dresses, jersey dresses, kimono-style dresses, and dresses with ruffle detailing.

 

High Platforms

A genius blend of the allure of high heels with the comfort and stability of platforms, high platforms are flying off shelves across the country. Trending this summer, are high platforms in bold, unconventional shoe colours such as yellow, purple, green and hot pink. Look for two-toned suede styles, crisscross straps and sling-backs, animal prints, and pleats. These platforms go great with scoop neck summer dresses, belted sleeveless dresses, printed tube top dresses and halter neck styles.

 

Summer Accessorising 

Don’t let your summer style stop at your feet! Here’s how to stay stylish from head to toe as you gear up for summer…

 

Summer makeup: Looking fresh and pretty despite the heat and humidity can be a challenge so experts recommend water-based makeup, ultra light foundation and a concealer for blemishes. Powder foundation and tinted moisturiser work great as well. Waterproof mascara and a light swoosh of the eye pencil on the upper and lower lid is sufficient for the summer. Add some sheer lip-gloss and you're all set!

Summer jewellery: Summer jewellery should be light and low maintenance. Think earrings, rings and bangles made of beads, coral, turquoise, resin and wood.
Summer bags: Canvas beach totes, straw and jute bags go really well with summer dresses. Also consider satchels in neon colours, metallic hobos and any bag with a fringe detail.  

A hat, large sunglasses and anklets/toe rings are other summer must-haves. These tips should help you put your best foot forward this summer, no matter what !
