Thankfully, for our lovely feet and growing bunions, flat shoes have become a fashion staple over the last few years. It started with stylish trainers worn outside the gym, matched with skirts and suits worn in the office by day and onto the nightclub by night. And in 2016 when the Gucci loafer – in particular the sling back with fur lining – was worn by every blogger and editor worth their street style salt, we became totally obsessed with this chic shoe. And sure why wouldn’t we? They are comfy, versatile and add instant cool girl chic to any outfit. If you can’t afford the Gucci price tag head to Office or Topshop for some great styles. (FYI, you can get 25% off in Office if you pick up this week’s issue of Grazia UK). Wear with pleated skirts, trouser suits, and mom jeans for that Instagram worthy shot. Wear with whatever you want if you’re not on Instagram.

I am going to write very little on this post. Only. Look. At. These. Picture. Embrace your inner shimming, over-embellished, vintage, quirky old lady this Christmas. Inspiration as follows from Alessandro Michele’s Pre-Fall ’16 collection.

Sun, oh how we have missed you! We finally have our pins out, and with that in mind here are some star summer buys – summer staples if you will – that you should be hunting down this week.
The summer sales have started too (does that rhym?!), so you may just get very lucky!
The breton top never goes out of fashion. One should always have a little number in ones wardrobe for an instant outfit update. Wear with jeans, or with floral prints for a cool clashing situation.

Suede – and the 70’s – are having a moment. The easiest, and most popular way to wear it right now seems to be the mini skirt, buttoned up the front. Check out Topshop or any of the high street stores for the best.

The Neck Tie:
Yes, its back. Thanks to Gucci’s new creative director, Alessandro Michele. He has launched a string – get it?! – of dresses and blouses donning both skinny and fat, black and red, neck ties. Wear with a blouse, or try a pussy bow blouse to get the look. They will be hitting the highstreet stores in July.

Co-ords are the new dress. I have no idea if they are, but they are everywhere and look pretty dam cute. Mostly sold as a shorts/top combo, you can get them in a skirt/top or trouser/top combo too, for the more modest lady. Its all gone matchy matchy. Here is one of our favs.
