Weddings, christenings, garden parties and work dos: occasion wear can be a bit of a minefield. Tread carefully…
Staying on your feet at a wedding is an endurance test at the best of times. It’s a brave soul who walks down gravel pathways, over manicured lawns or through tussocky grass in stilettos.
Instead of sinking into the grass, make yourself comfortable in these solid alternatives:
Metallic is the new neutral, so the Gabor Purpose wedges are a sound investment; they’ll match every dress you can’t decide on. Plus their super soft insoles mean they’ll last from day to evening, even if you’re planning to get your groove on for several solid hours of dancing.
These wood-effect heels go with every outfit, and their combination of neutral and night-sky navy flatters in any light.
The rattan effect of these bronzed sandals gives them a smarter edge over classic espadrilles. Team with a lace shift dress for weddings or Ladies Day, then slip them on with your favourite jeans for an elevated off-duty look.
Wearing a white dress is off-limits at most weddings, but who said you can’t wear white shoes? That’s right, no-one ever. These lovely slide-on sandals from Reiker feature pretty petal cutouts and no heels, so they’re sure to keep you comfy until the early hours.
No heel is so reliable as a wedge, and no silhouette is so right-now as the mule. Oh hello, shimmering suede wedge-heeled mules from Gabor.
For a look you can work all season, find a flattering, neutral dress that you love to wear, and stock up on fun accessories and footwear to curate a fancy new look for every event. Not only will this customize your look for every occasion, but you’ll be ready for anything and everything under the sun.
