Let’s face it. I am a heels girl. I can work a flat but a pair of heels always gives me that extra lift. The higher the better. Whenever I put on a pair, I simply feel like my true self!
As the fashion-industry adage goes, you can never be overdressed but you can be overdone and I prefer classic silhouettes and minimal styling. As a result, a pair of nude heels is a wardrobe staple for me. When I spotted this Aldo gladiator-inspired pair I, well, fell for them head over heels. They are seriously practical in that they are versatile and the perfect balance between tough and feminine.
For the office, I paired them with an all-black look and a statement neckpiece to create a sophisticated look. The stilettos lent femininity to this subtle look.

Later in the week I was invited to a fashion do and dressed them up with a coral maxidress and chunky knit from the millecollines SS15 collection. The result was luxe and modern and the neutral heels allowed the dress to do the talking.
Going into the festive season means it’s time to bring out the party dresses and if you’ve spoilt yourself with something that has a little shimmer and some festive sequins, understated heels like these are just what you need to make it (and you) the star of the show.
