Remixed Basics

A classic pair of pointy black pumps will be your go-to heel for work events and nights out on the town. Not only are they stylish, but they are also very practical: they will go with just about anything in your wardrobe. This is a shoe you can invest a little more money in, as they won’t go out of style any time soon.


Push the envelope a little and try an unexpected spin on the loafer like this gentleman. Suede shoes in a bright colour are the perfect addition to make an outfit a little less ordinary and a lot more fashion-forward.

Role Reversal

Take a cue from photographer Terry Richardson and rock a pair of classically cool converse sneakers on your days off. You can’t go wrong with comfortable and trendy!

Standing Tall

The tassled loafer adds a bit more edge to your outfit than the penny loafer will. They are also a relatively more formal shoe and can be paired with a suit for the office but can also be worn to make a more casual outfit look smarter.

The Shoes Have It

Flirty details like bows add a certain feminine charm that never goes out of style. Get yourself a pair for an elegant and retro style that will be sure to turn heads.
