Shoes are the most accessible way into the new season trends. Not many of us can afford the Burberry lace twin-sets or the Mulberry short suits, but we might be able to invest in a pair of their vinyl sandals or platform heels.
Get the must-have shoe of the season and, not only will you have all your friends drooling with envy, but it will act like a sartorial shot in the arm to the rest of your wardrobe – everything else will inevitably follow.
Zara has a pair of 70s inspired platforms that will look great with that shirt dress you have your eye on for spring/summer.
These will be absolutely perfect for summer, accessorised with that lovely golden tan you’re going to have, so get saving.
If you like your heels with heaps of personality, then shoe lady of the moment, Sophia Webster’s SS14 pumps are the ones for you.
Whistles have taken the new season trend for pool sliders and made it slightly more palatable by creating a gladiator hybrid. These metallic sandals will go with pretty much everything for SS14 so are well worth a splurge.
Finally, everyone needs a pair of trainers for spring/summer 2014. New Balance sneakers are a great pick as they’ll go with your 90s slip dresses, pencil skirts and your girlfriend jeans.
