Party brogues and cocktail sneakers: the shoes you can wear all night long

I’ve said this many times before but it’s worth repeating: no-one ever looked glamorous when their feet hurt. Shoes that you can actually walk in are a crucial part of the grown-up woman’s wardrobe. Gone are the days, when as a fashion editor, I would carry my kitten heels on the commute (or leave them under the desk at work) and regularly do the sodding Shoe Switch-up. Today, it’s all about 9-to-9 style, having an outfit that takes you from coffee meeting to cocktails. And I do believe that fancy flats are here to stay. This week I spoke at the Precious Boutique Christmas event and the store was full of elegant women, the majority of whom looked comfortable and modern in their flat or low-heeled shoes and sneakers. Cocktail trainers, luxe loafers and party brogues are perfect with jeans and a glitzy top, perfect with a jumpsuit and tuxedo jacket; and all you need to be the last woman standing on the dance floor.

 

For those who live in London, maker of fabulous flats Rogue Matilda has a pop-up shop in Chelsea this weekend (Saturday and Sunday at 121 Sydney Street SW3).
