Fanatical about Floral

If you’re hankering after some beautiful flowers to liven up the week, these totally tropi-cool floral platforms could be just the ticket. With floral being one of those trends that comes around every year, these hot printed peep toes are – it could easily be argued – an investment buy.

The statement pattern is set to a sunny orange backdrop, meaning they’ll work just as well with a chic monochrome or all white ensemble as the statement piece or add some edge in a print and color clash statement look. Bonus marks for the retro flower vibe that designers River Island suggest belongs on the dance floor. Features ankle strap and chunky 15 cm heel. £55.00 from RiverIsland.com.

Stylish in Snakeskin

There are two things a girl can never have too many of – animal prints and high heeled sandals. Luckily these barely there snake print lovelies tick both boxes.

Just dropped at River Island, these red tie color block sandals, with the most delicate of snake print and sultry ankle straps are sure to be a style staple. Black and red is a classic color combination, easy to pair with any type of outfit from work to casual to glam, and the snake print adds a little star factor to make whatever you’re wearing feeling polished, special and totally fashion forwards.

River Island do a similar design in a range of basic colors including plain black, plain white, gold and blue but to our mind, the addition of the sizzling snake print elevates the whole sandal to another class. With an elasticized strap, leather ankle ties and 12 inch heel, they’re a wardrobe classic in the making. £55.00 from RiverIsland.com.

Barely There Beauties

Whether you’re strutting down the sidewalk, showing off your fashion savvy in the office or hitting the town with the girls, there is one thing as essential as your LBD; these barely there beauties. The ultimate in strappy sandals from River Island – the UK label that has been making waves thanks to its collaboration with songstress Rihanna – the stiletto lovelies are available in a choice of black, white or coral.

While white has had fashion bloggers in a frenzy all season, black is a go-with-anything staple. The pretty coral version can also add a pop of color to an otherwise plain outfit so choosing between the three is a tricky task.

The buckle fastening as 12 inch heel are feminine and sophisticated, meaning these delicate, sexy shoes can be paired with everything from casually turned up jeans to a killer party dress. £45 from Riverisland.com.

In The Pink

We don’t know what it is but we’re loving super cute brights at the moment and these hot pink wedges fit the bill perfectly. Although they are a stand out piece and guaranteed to brighten and shoe closet – or pair of feet lucky enough to be snugly encased in them – there’s also something incredibly versatile about this design. Savvy fashionistas will know what we’re talking about here – if you’re the kind of girl who refuses to retire your shorts and maxi dresses when winter knocks and prefer to layer them up and transition your favorite items to the new season – you’ll know what we mean by this versatility.

Yes they are a swoon-worthy pink. Yes they are an open toe. Yes, they are suede and therefore at the mercy of rain and snow and general winter nastiness. BUT, it’s so retro cool to wear nights or cute little ankle socks with an open toe that we think these will do well in winter. And what’s hotter than hot pink clashed wither serious blacks? Not much. And as for precipitation? Huh. Get us some shoe protection spray!

Of course when summer rolls round, these beautiful wedges come into their own. With a 13cm heel height they’re comfortably towering and the double strap, sling back and buckle fastening screams out for some air (so more people can see and therefore admire them). But what we really, really love is the color. Race you to the store. $100 from RiverIsland.com.
