Lace meets leather for a ladylike take on the statement shoe in these sassy but sweet Amika pumps by Jimmy Choo. If you’ve been looking for a high heel that will work day to night and go with everything from skinny jeans for bar hopping to pencil skirts for boardroom meetings, the Amika leather trimmed lace and mesh combo is a winner.
Pretty in patent, the leather heel and toe cap is set off by a delicate floral lace pattern which adds just the right touch of girly to the sophisticated shoe. The heel height measures 4 inches. Priced £450 from Net-a-Porter.
When the mercury starts to creep up, nothing says summer more than a zingy bright shoe. Even if you’ve been reluctant to embrace the neon craze sweeping the catwalk, it’s easy to add a touch of floro to your footwear. What’s more, if you do normally play it safe with your fashion and are more of a chic stylista than frow-hopping slave to trends, footwear is an easy way to take a risk.
Whatever you’re planning to rock this week, whether it’s cut offs and a band tee and off to a festival, a playsuit to hit the beach or a cute summer dress for shopping with the girls, finish your outfit off with one of our show stopping picks and take your summer style savvy to a whole new level. We promise you won’t be disappointed!

If you too are a sucker for detailing, may we direct your attention to these delectable FAUNA booties courtesy of Jimmy Choo? The black suede and lace peep toe is decidedly decadent with a delicate floral pattern adding a touch of luxury.
Somewhat gothic, definitely gorgeous, these 3.9” lovelies are nothing less than exquisite. With a high but not towering heel they are (say it quietly) practical and smart enough to wear to the office, potentially justifying the $1250 price tag. Like all Choos though, they really come into their own after dark. If you want something a little less statement, they are also available in nude.
Iconic brand Jimmy Choo has launched a new street style website where fans and photographers can upload pictures of themselves wearing Choo shoes and accessories. According to Jimmy Choo, the concept for the Choo 24:7 Stylemakers site is that it will celebrate street style with an image gallery showcasing fans wearing Jimmy Choo across international time zones, day to evening, 24:7.
The site at choo247.com appears to be currently populated with images from around the world that the brand itself has taken (like the one featured here) but users are able to upload pictures themselves and invited to do so.
There’s a strong incentive for you to upload as well – if you post your photograph by 6 June 2012 you go in the draw to win a Choo 24:7 wardrobe consisting of 6 pairs of Choos from the 24:7 collection and a handbag. Terms and conditions are on the site.
Rules for uploading include the following:
The photograph has been taken by you and/or belongs to you;
You have obtained the permission of the person/s in the photograph to upload the photograph onto a public forum;
Your photograph is of a high quality (i.e. no grainy or blurred photographs); and
Your photograph focuses on Choo 24:7 products.
As might be expected, the site makes full use of social media. There’s an Instagram “ticker” that displays images tagged #choo247, and visitors to the site can like and share images via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. And of course there’s a marketing angle too – visitors can click from photographs to go straight to the store to buy the shoes featured or similar looks.
Earlier this month Kelly Brook attend the 2010 British Fashion Awards wearing a saucy gown with sweetheart necklace and thigh-high slit. The actress pair the sexy dress with equally hot shoes by a brand that’s well-known for celeb-approved high heels.
The name of the shoe is the “Evita” and it’s by the ever-popular Jimmy Choo. This caged sandal features studs that lends a touch of rock and roll edge to the sandal. They are available at jimmychoo.com for $975.
