With summer not far away, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect ladies fashion and shoe trends for the season.
Gone are the heavy and dark wintery shoes and in its place light and summery shoes and if there is one trend that screams summer it’s the cork heel. They come in a variety of styles and they look laid-back and surfery.
According to Look Magazine “cork is super light, meaning shoes can be chunky without weighing a ton-they’re the most casual heel around.”
While Essence.com reckons “cork is getting a new haute look paired with everything from sexy stilettos to trendy platform wedges. Not only are cork soles a great addition to your spring and summer wardrobe, the eco-chic organic material (the harvesting of cork does not harm trees) allows you to be green and fabulous.”
They come in a variety of styles including peep toes, pumps, sling backs, slides, platforms, and sandals. There’s also no limit to the choice of colour or detailing making them versatile and unique.
And because they’re cork they’re perfect for nailing the nautical look which is always a key summer trend. Simply team them with a Breton stripped T-shirt and a pair of wide leg trousers for a chic look.
And the celebs have even been spotted in this key ladies shoe trends with the likes of T4’s Jameela Jamil rocking the look. While Michelle Williams wore a pair of Stella McCartney cork heels for call for their movie Blue Valentine in Cannes
However, there are some downsides to cork heels as they’re not great if we have a rainy summer as cork does discolour easily but they’re perfect for sunny days and of course holidays.
What’s also great about the look is the savvy fashionista can combine more than one ladies shoe trend. Simply look for a cork soled wedge or combine it with some key colours such as metallics or zingy brights.
The natural look is a huge trend this season and these shoes tick all the boxes and being so light makes them easy and comfortable to wear. They’re also be style staples in your wardrobe for year’s to come so are the perfect summer shoe investment.
