Trust the Scandi style-babes to provide an undeniably chic shoe showcase. During the recent Copenhagen Fashion Week we witnessed incredible footwear game. We're talking next-level sneakers, sleek slides and a relatively new shape to jump back on the scene - the slingback. Christian Dior sent this elegant mule down the catwalk and we are so ready to embrace it for the warmer months ahead. The exciting bit? The slingback is not just a Monday to Friday player, it's very much an option for any occasion. Check out the street style experts below for some sweet AF inspiration...

With a dress

Slingbacks not only look slick, but they can be a fresh alternative to old-faithful sneakers - especially when you pair them with dress of the season (I'm looking at you, floral maxi) and great shades. If you're after a little more coverage, layer a plain tee with the look and finish with a classic black shoulder bag.

With a denim mini

With the temps set to rise it's time to dust off those pins and air them out. Make like Camille Charrière and pair your slingbacks with a denim mini and loose-fit knit. Extra points for matching mellow yellow accessories.

With over-sized blazer

Slingbacks aren't all about leather and the muted tones, they can be bright and playful too. This outfit turns typically corporate pieces - blazer and heals - on their head. Clock up a street style win in a bold double-breasted blazer and slingbacks fluffier than a sheep with a blow-dry. Embrace the cray, guys.

With clashing prints

One way to get noticed is wearing head-to-toe clashing prints. Trust us, it works. We're kind of obsessed with loud floral prints (in spring? Groundbreaking...) and the cool crew in Copenhagen were too. If all-over prints is a bit OTT for you, then pair the prints with a classic white shirt and finish with demure slingbacks.

With statement sleeves

No word of a lie, here at ASOS HQ, we love a striped shirt and this outfit has been effortlessly elevated by combining it with other timeless pieces: baby-blue denim and simple black slingbacks. Minimal chic at its best.
