T-bars are definitely having a bit of a “moment” as far as fashion in concerned. These t-bars, however, aren’t the kind you might remember from school – the clunky, sensible flats with the think soles and rounded toes. Nope, these shoes are much more sophisticated, with a high, stiletto heel, a sharply pointed toe, and a slender ankle strap. They also have a nice, d-orsay cut, oh, and did I mention that they’re only £27? Well, they are. And it doesn’t really get much more affordable than that, does it?
These shoes are also available in black, but my preference would be for this “nude” version: not only is the colour so much more versatile than black, I also think it’s a better option for the upcoming spring/summer season, when I for one tend to make the switch to lots of pale, pastel colours, with a fair bit of white and cream mixed in, too. I always think black shoes look a bit too “heavy” with pastels (Although they can look amazing contrasted with white), and that’s when nude shoes come into their own!
What to wear with nude shoes?
For this look, I decided to stick with Dorothy Perkins, who have a really great line of summer dresses on the site at the moment. They’ve been really getting into the “sheer stripe” look, with lots of skirts and dresses which have a transparent section of fabric just above the hemline: I wasn’t too sure about this style when it first started to pop up last year, but I’ve gradually come around to it, and think it’s a nice way to bring a midi dress/skirt up to date:

This dress is also available in pink (but of course!), which would also look good with these shoes: oh, and it’s available in both the Tall and Petite sections, too!
