We’re on the edge of Spring here in Melbourne, but with our temperamental weather you can simply never tell if it’s edging forward or backwards into Winter once more. Transitional fashion trends can be tricky especially as it involves tricky layering of what are essentially Spring pieces. Some of the trends I’ve noticed are the long line sleeveless cardigans, lightweight trench ‘coats’, one-shoulder tops, wrap-everything, airy wide legged pants and bell sleeves. All in the colours of a simple palette of neutrals and light muted colours (similar to that of trendy fashion insta accounts). It’s funny how we see similar trends translate across all fashion/design disciplines.
I love lightweight trousers, especially paired with a good pair of heels. I have on the Tony Bianco ‘Dakotah’, which looks deceitfully UNcomfortable – how can a pointed shoe with a tall stiletto heel ever be comfy?
For context, I’m a size 5-5.5 and I have narrow feet. Although I seem to have tiny feet, this does not mean that shoes don’t hurt on me. In fact, nearly all pointed shoes cause discomfort despite my narrow feet. However, to my surprise, these heels are unbelievable easy and comfortable to walk in for a long period of time. They’re soft (thanks to the suade leather) and they’re 10cm tall, just below my heel-competency threshold. The added lace up provides support at the ankle also. Honestly, I had started to think that this was just going to be a shoe that fills my trend-chasing desires. Thankfully, they fulfil so much more, offering practicality and an utterly flattering shoe fit for both the colder (shields them toes) and warmer months!
