Currently Coveting: Statement Shoes

You won’t take your eyes off of these statement makers

statement shoes

Look at them, just look.

Something’s drawing you to them, and you’re not sure what it is, but you need them. If they were yours, you’d spend every day with them, you think, as you stare into those eyes…

There’s something particularly spellbinding about statement shoes. They can transform the simplest of outfits from a 7 to a 10, adding instant personality to an ensemble as basic as a black poloneck with black pants.

Striking the balance between irreverence and high fashion, these strappy slip-ons borrow from this season’s Beetlejuice trend, which perhaps adds to their intrigue. This monochrome aesthetic is then combined with an 80s block heel silhouette to create a perfectly-imperfect statement shoe that’s about to set the tone for the rest of your S/S looks.

To hero this pair in the way it deserves, it’s all about creating a well-thought out blank canvas with the rest of your outfit. A crisp white shirt with an oversized blazer, cropped denims and chunky gold earrings will come across as considered, while a high-waisted suit skirt and cropped white tee will add the touch of 80s Prada you’ve been looking for.
