Heels are great but we don’t need any more pain in 2020.
The shoe synonymous with nights out and high glamour has lost its shine in a year when we spent the majority of our time in fluffy slippers.
Without parties, weddings and high power office days, our need and want for heels waned. For so long we kept our head, heels and standards high and while this remains true, we’d like to stay closer to the ground over the coming months.
Christmas Day is around the corner and with that comes an opportunity to finally put on our finest outfits. However, we yearned for comfort all year because the world around us was so uncomfortable – this hasn’t changed. We are less about tight dresses and more about relaxed knits that can be dressed up with sparkling accessories.
When it comes to footwear we want ease and nothing says soothing style more than flats.
To get the most out of your flat choice, look for pointed styles that add the high-glam of heels without the arch aches. Velvets, satins and leather give a luxe look, even on a budget. And always look for some embellishment for a hint of party bling and fun.
Here are some of our favourites you can shop now.
