INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
INTRODUCING YOUR PRETTY NEW DAY SHOE
By Lucy Glen, 7 September 2017
Trust the Scandi style babes to provide an undeniably chic shoe showcase. At Copenhagen Fashion Week this year, 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. It's a pretty-as option for every occasion – check out the street-style experts below for some sweet 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 the dress of the season (we're 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 an oversized blazer
Slingbacks aren't only about leather and muted tones, they can be bright and playful, too. This outfit turns typically corporate pieces – a blazer and heels – 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 fun, 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 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
We love a striped shirt here at ASOS HQ 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.
