Bored of trainers but not quite sandal weather? We show you the shoe styles that will see you through...



The constantly changing weather is not just hard to dress for clothing wise, shoes can be tricky to get right when it just feels too premature temperature wise to go for sandals. Versatility is key, you want a style that looks just as good with jeans as it does dresses. Keep reading for our edit…

The Backless Loafer

At the top of our list has to be the backless loafer. Comfortable, cool and go with everything – if budget is not an issue, you can’t go wrong with the cult Gucci princetown loafer. But you don’t have to invest, the high street is packed with versions from these by Dune or this bright white pair by The White Company.

The Espadrille

Chic and practical, espadrilles are your spring footwear staple. Stick to neutral tones in leather or canvas – two tone styles are fashion forward whilst block colours also work. Pair with jeans and a stripe tee for an effortless look.

The Mule

Woven, backless and in neutral hues are this seasons preference. Whether you opt for a square or pointed toe is up to you, whilst not as classic as other options these add a different texture and interest to even the simplest of outfits.

The Ballet Pump

A style that can be overlooked but for us, their appeal never goes away. If you’re able to invest, you really can’t go wrong with the coveted Chanel style – so timeless, comfortable and iconic you’ll still be wearing them in years to come. On the high street, this pair from M&S mix woven details with the pump shape and it works. – In real leather, they’re a great alternative at an affordable price point.

The Kitten Heel –

Sometimes a heel (even a small one) is necessary, making you feel more put together and elevating an outfit of basics. This spring, look to slip on backless styles, Manolo Blahnik excels in this category and whilst at the luxury end of the market, the Italian leather quality means they really do last. For a high street version, look to this pale blue pair from Charles & Keith – spring shoes made simple.
