White or ivory shoes inevitably make many people think of brides, but if you don’t happen to have a handy wedding planned, I think these Rupert Sanderson slingbacks could also work during the summer, for almost any formal occasion. I’m picturing them with a 50s-style prom dress in some bright colour – or, um, polka dots, perhaps. In fact, imagine these with a black and white, full-skirted polka dot number, and you’ll maybe get where I’m coming from. They manage to be both cute and sophisticated at the same time, and if you happen to have £480 looking for a purpose in life, they can be yours. Get them at Browns.
