Block heel prettiness
If, like me, you are a little averse to powering through your day in vertiginous heels, and prefer to stick to something a little more sedate when it comes to surfing life’s daily tasks like getting the kids off to school, cleaning up the house after a weekend of the family running rampage through your once tidy domain, or heading off to work for another fun-packed week of multi-tasking. Then it’s time to say hello to this season’s new slew of block heel beauties which are perfect for adding a little zing to your look but guaranteed to be wearable for days on end without inducing a bunion.
The good old block heel is going to be your friend for life… or at least as long as the trend pundits deem it sexy to sport such a sensible shoe. With many incarnations on offer, you can opt for anything from a boho sandal complete with rustic fringing or rivet details, through to flowery feminine looks and on to minimal metallics. There really is something out there for everyone.
I’m always a fan of a little metallic over the summer season – sis-in-laws Zara heels above are a perfect pick.
If you’re more of a stiletto gal and the block heel has you reminiscing about evil school uniform back in the day, then check out the prettier side of the block heel party by the likes of Sophia Webster and Dolce and Gabbana.
