THE SHOES | New Look Check print court shoes
It’s been a long time since I last visited the New Look website, and now that I have, I’m kicking myself for not visiting more often, because the blue version of these shoes is almost sold out, and they’re exactly the kind of thing I’d have worn to death this summer. (I say almost sold out: these are still in stock online in a size 2, so if you have small feet, you could be in luck. And if you DON’T have small feet, it could be worth checking your local store – you never know what you might find lurking amongst the sale stock!)
The red and grey version, however, IS still available (although probably not for long: it looks like it’s selling out fast, too!), and is probably more appropriate for autumn. Red and grey is a great colour combination in general, but there’s something very “cosy” about this check pattern, somehow, and I think these could be just the thing for a winter’s day at work – although I can see them working just as easily with black skinny jeans and a chunky sweater as I can with the slightly more formal outfit I’ve put together below:
This bag is also available in a lovely dark burgundy shade, which is another colour that always screams “autumn” to me – in a good way, I hasten to add. As I mentioned, these could also work well with jeans: as the print is a fairly “grown up” one (Is it just me who tends to think of checks that way?), they’re the kind of shoes that will add a touch of sophisticated to whatever you choose to wear with them: not bad for a pair of £17 pumps from New Look.
Still kicking myself over that blue version, though…
