I can’t do heels any more. I mean, I COULD if I had to. But I am out here stating for the record that I am a Fashion Editor who just can’t do heels any more.
So SUPER happy that flat sandals are in. Or, more specifically, NANDALS are in – the shoes that your Nana would be delighted to see you wearing. In fact, she would probably be wearing them too.
Alexa Chung is a huge fan of the Nandal. They’re not generally the sexiest shoe in the world, but by God your feet are happy in them.
I have been on a shoe mission this month replacing those (impractical platforms) I’ve ditched after having a massive clear-out of, well, everything I own.
And sexy nandals have been high on my must-buys. Not high, practical enough to run around in after the kids and sexy because they’ve got something a little bit extra to them.
Swedish Hasbeens are like the Marmite of the shoe world. You either love ’em or hate ’em. I never used to like them – and then I saw THESE:
They’re neon pink (also available in acid yellow, zingy orange or peppy green) and they are heading my way NOW. I’ll be wearing mine with cropped Chinos.
And the other pair I have just bought are the ‘Cartwheel’ sandal from Office – which again have the neon trim to make them look that little bit cooler:
If you want a truly Nandal experience, check out the Clarks Originals ‘Kestral Soar,’ also available from Office.
To get away with these WITHOUT looking like a fashion geek, you would ideally need to be rocking cropped skinny jeans, a Breton top and a messy bun.
And here are a couple of other pairs that are glamming up the gran factor.
Just remember to have a killer pedicure and paint your toenails in a ‘yeah I’m wearing nandals AND WHAT?’ colour.
I don’t know, we’ll all be knitting next.
