I’m a little scared of the H&M trend section and in general I’d say my style is a little too fussy for this type of dressing. I like tacky-pretty prints (anything with animals if possible) and I feel far more comfortable in an oversized smock dress, striped t shirt and battered loafers, and due to my awfully un-chic wide (and easily blistering) feet, don’t think I could ever get away with something that has less straps than a Clarks esque Roman sandal or more support than a Dr Marten. However, I went there folks. After receiving these Louis Vuitton style silver toe cap heels, I thought I’d take the plunge and style them with some of the most clean-cut ‘on trend’ pieces I own, and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Teaming my shoes with my favourite Zara pj pants, a Next granddad style shirt and my favourite red lipstick, I was pretty pleased to know that even the most simple of fashion maths can make for the most comfortable (and effortless) outcome.
What do you think? Is less really more?
