New Spring Shoes

Spring officially starts this weekend, so we say it’s definitely time for new spring shoes. Ease those feet out of those boots and trainers, get yourself a pedicure, and then pop them back into something lighter.

Platforms, wedges, heels, low heels, mules or flats – there’s something for everyone when it comes to new spring shoes. And who doesn’t love a pair of new shoes? Any excuse we say.

Let’s start with heels. Come spring, come weddings, and you will need new spring shoes for your friend’s big day, agreed? The stores are full of bold colours, with fringes, ties, prints, straps, and studs. There are so many styles to choose from, to fit with whatever trend you’re rocking this spring.

If heels are too much, maybe wedges are more your thing? They fit perfectly into the 1970s trend that’s still with us, and are brilliant holiday shoes. Wedges are also fab with tights, and under maxi dresses, so the perfect new spring shoes when the weather isn’t that spring-like yet.

Staying high, platforms and mules are still making their mark. Platforms are easy to walk in. Mules are on trend this season. Pop either or on your new spring shoes list.

Bringing things back down to the ground a little bit, low heels are great for everyday wear, or if you just can’t do heels any more. Courts or sandals, clogs or block heels, just keep these new spring shoes on the down low.

And if you want to feel the terra firma beneath your feet, then chose some flats. Flats don’t have to be boring, or trainers. Try pumps, sandals, loafers or brogues. Play with colour, pattern and finish to brighten up those flats. We love daytime metallics.

Day to Night Dresses

Here’s how to take a dress from morning to midnight this spring/summer. Day to night dressing is not hard – just swap out your accessories at sundown and get ready for the night ahead!

Here are six styles to choose from.

Love this yellow lace sundress from H&M (£5.99) and it could work day to night. During the day team it with a cute shell bangle (£7.99, New Look), straw bag (£14.99, H&M), clog sandals (£130, UGG @ Schuh), and some coral sunnies (£3, Claire’s Accessories).

For night, mix it up with a cute snakeprint mobile clutch purse (£7.99, H&M), killer orange heels (£34.99, New Look) and some glam diamante drop earrings (£10, The Collection @ Debenhams).

DAYTO NIGHT SIXBHS’s green crepe twist shift (£30) looks great with bright colours during the day  – team it with a bold yellow bag (£110, J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams), contrasting stripe pumps (£tbc, Debenhams), a cute Hawaiian print watch (£60, JOY) and some big bold sunnies (£18, JOY).

Then, at night, make it monochrome and bold, with a zebra print clutch (£25, Star by Julien Macdonald @ Debenhams), some monochrome pattern courts (£tbc, Debenhams) and a pair of black drop earrings (£15, Betty Jackson Black @ Debenhams).

DAY TO NIGHT TWOIf the dress is monochrome like this jazzy stripe number from Principles by Ben De Lisi @ Debenhams (£60), then add a bit more monochrome, and maybe some print to contrast this print. Try these monochrome wooden sandals (£59.99, New Look), a wooden striped bangle (£5.99, New Look), and a bold leopard print backpack (£15.99, New Look) for a casual look.

Then, for day to night, swap put the backpack for a rose gold oversize clutch (£18, BHS), some gold earrings (£7.99, H&M), and some lipstick pink patent courts (£39, Debenhams)

DAY TO NIGHT FIVEFrench Connection’s print tunic dress (£95) looks great in the daytime with some summer boots (£59.99, New Look), cat’s eye sunnies (£5.99, New Look), and a block colour tote (£129, J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams).

Then, come sundown, keep the look simple, but swap out the boots for some gold lace-ups (£29.99, H&M), a gorgeous crystal ring (£6.99, H&M), nose rings (£3.99 for two, H&M) and a fur clutch bag (£7.99, H&M),

DAY TO NIGHT ONEWhite Stuff’s pretty navy dress will look retro-tastic during the day with some metallic ballet pumps (£12, BHS), love heart sunglasses (£16, Floozie by FrostFrench @ Debenhams), a beautiful pastel blue bag (£19.99, New Look), and a big old floppy hat (£22, J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams).

Then, switch it up at night, with some pretty floral high sandals (£100, French Connection), lovely jewel bangles from JOY (£12 for two), and a bold red tassel, and studded clutch (£25, Butterfly by Matthew Williamson @ Debenhams)

DAY TO NIGHT FOURLast but not least, this bold orange Bardot neckline (huge this season) orange dress from New Look (£19) looks fab during the day with matching orange tote bag (£24.99, New Look), bronze sandals (£17.99, New Look), and muted orange sunnies (£7.99, H&M).

Then at night, add some fun accessories in a pom pom necklace (£5.99, New Look), pom pom sandals (£50, Schuh), and a cute beaded clutch (£25, BHS).
