Boasting the same elegant shape as a classic court but with an added dose of drama, the platform pump is the ideal choice for those who favour a ladylike look that’s more powerful than prim. Make like Jessica Chastain and keep a classic black pair in your sartorial artillery at all times.
A classic pair of single soles is a true style staple, and one worth investing in. Step into a pointed pair and witness your silhouette shift into ever-chic territory, whether you’re wearing a pencil dress or a Vogue’s Sarah Harris-style khaki jacket and tailored trousers combo.
A shoe choice that can’t help but feel fun, let a pair of flatforms elevate your favourite pair of jeans or - as demonstrated by Miranda Kerr - put a carefree spin on a summer dress.
While once it might have seemed like Fashion Week had a ‘heels only’ policy, flats have returned to the fore with the likes of Fashion Editor Giovanna Battaglia championing them. Valentino and Nicholas Kirkwood can be relied upon for standout styles that will be the envy of even the hardiest heel wearers.
