The High Summer Edit: Day Wear

July has arrived, and for the most part, we’re thrilled. The sun’s out and it’s totally acceptable to have an Aperol Spritz (or five) post-work on a Monday evening. Admittedly, we do find dressing well at this time of year harder, and just occasionally (dare we say it) mourn the months where the go-to jeans-boots-coat combination is your only option. Here’s how not to sweat it during the dreamy months that are high summer…

Off-Duty Stroll

We love a weekend walk at this time of year, and as far as footwear goes, it’s all about the espadrille. It really epitomises summer; the raffia sole, canvas coverage and, in Carvela’s case, a touch of glitz (don’t miss the 'Lolly' nude flats on sale now). Espadrilles are a rare breed in fashion – an item that combines both comfort and style. Has there ever been better justification to shop? We think not. Pair your flat-spadrilles (yes, we’re making that a thing) with mid length skirts or dresses and statement sunnies. If you tend to rely on shoes with a bit of height, Carvela’s 'Sabrina 2' wedges are of the same ilk, simply boasting a slight heel. We’ve even got the boys covered on the espadrille front. KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Pedro' pair are perfect for any style-savvy chap, teamed with tailored shorts and polo shirts.

Out and About

Woman on a mission? Running errands is all about comfort. While sandals look great, they’re not ideal for ALL your high summer activities. Luckily, trainers are the height of cool, and we’ve got plenty of styles armed with a summery spin. Also good to bear in mind is that trainers don’t have to be worn with workout gear. We love the athleisure trend as much as the next person but sneakers look great with summer dresses and shorts. Why not team KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Orla' flatforms with a mini dress and even mini-er mini bag? (We’re obsessed with our 'Leather Mini Kensington'). Perhaps you’ve got an eye for sparkle? KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Lucca' and 'Lippy' styles will instantly glam up any laid-back look. When it comes to the boys, all men need a classic pair of box fresh white sneakers. KG Kurt Gieger’s 'Phoenix' kicks are the perfect way to get around town this summer.

Sun Worshipper

Some girls just get summer style. They know their way around a printed playsuit better than most, and even in the blazing sun they always manage to maintain their cool. Enter the pointed-toe flat: the glamazon’s choice of summer’s day footwear. Take Carvela’s 'Mystic' or 'Mannie' styles; the pointed toe gives them an elegant touch – the illusion of a heel almost - cleverly equipped with the comfort of a flat shoe. Perfect for summer lunches and garden parties, they provide a sophisticated finish to dresses, culottes and even tailored shorts. Men shouldn’t miss KG Kurt Geiger’s 'Waikato' slides. These slick sandals are smarter than your average pool slide and literally the most comfortable footwear you’ll ever find. Buy now and thank us later.
