We’re talking the return of the block heel often accompanied by a wedge. Gotta love a good wedgie. I’ve frequently got one – maybe I need to buy some bigger knickers!
The block heel is generally easy to wear, generally a comfortable option too plus, if you are on the short side like me, there are plenty of designs that can also give you that much needed height boost! #winner. That said, I wore my new ones out on Friday night and was crippled by home time (and more than a little bit tipsy too!)
I had however trawled Oxford Street, done a mammoth imaginary Selfridges shopping HAUL ( like easily £30,000 of designer BOOTY! Love playing that game) then hot footed it over to Old Street in my Perspex block heeled blue velvet strappy sandals. Man, my BALLS were on FIRE FIRE!!! Luckily I had a pair of trusted flip flops in my bag for the journey home. Always pack a pair of flats my fellow FFF's - always.
A block heel and wedge can also make your legs look slimmer too, especially if you opt for a neutral colour. It’s a really flattering option and one you can pull off with lots of different outfit choices whether that be denims or a floaty skirt.
I really love these block heeled boots from Laurence Decade. Actually, I really do. They have my name written all over them.
This is a look heavily influenced by Gucci and very much has an overall 70’s Boho vibe. Especially if you’re lucky enough to be wearing yours on holiday with your beachy sun kissed waves and a long flowing dress. Lucky Bi-atch!
Check out these vintage style beauties from Chloe. They'd look AMAZING with denim shorts and just a simple vest top.
From designer to high street, brands are embracing the chunky sole and block heel this season with all manner of embellishments also around. We’re talking some seriously statement , show stopping shoes with price tags to match!
Here are some GLORIOUS examples that I just adore along with the above - all taken from my favourite on-line store Net-A-Porter.
There are just some of the stunners I've picked out in my little curated collection. Many are currently in their seasonal sale too so go ahead and check it out. www.net-a-porter.com
If you are more cautious with your footwear (and your budget) then these are good options from the high street too. Check out ASOS for a wide range of go to high street faves including examples below from Miss Selfridge, River Island and Oasis.
