I cannot overstate how much I am yearning for the ditch of functional shoes right now. I mean, I love a chunky boot and a cushioned sole as much as the next flat-footed person but oh, for a heel! For the pure impracticalness, for the pleasure of dressing frivolously. I’m dreaming of a life in which I am wearing these woven nappa leather ankle boots by luxury British shoe-makers, Russell & Bromley. Not only do they feature a fairly vertiginous spike heel but also toe as pointed as the caustic wit of Dorothy Parker. And, I want them as pictured here, in strictly nonutilitarian white. Sensible is no longer an option.

Doubtless this is some sort of reaction to months of neutral but cosy leisurewear but colour has never looked quite so exciting. Colour blocking and co-ords are reigning supreme, but the beauty of the colour wheel is it helps keep your tones grouped (warm or cool) or it can be used as a quick guide to contrasting or clashing shades which look surprisingly, fantastically ‘fashion’ when worn together.
It’s October and who doesn’t appreciate an extra layer right now? With such a great choice of styles around, cardigans are back with a bang and no surprise.
