Office ‘Jade’, £65
The Office website describes these shoes as “Fashion Week Favourites”. Well, I can’t speak for that, but they’re definitely ShoeperWoman favourites, and not just because the upper is in my favourite colour, either!
That jade green upper was the first thing about these shoes that caught my eye, though, I can’t deny it. Although there hasn’t been a shortage of green shoes in stores recently (much to my joy), the ongoing pastels trend has meant that most of them have been the mint green variety, so this shade is still unusual enough to really stand out. Quite apart from the colour, though, I also really like the shape of these, and particularly the asymmetric vamp, which I always think is a very flattering shape on the foot: it’s not only more interesting than a plain-cut vamp, it’s also a little more elegant. That’s also true of the slingback heel, which helps create a really nice, curved line from toe to heel: lovely!
What would you wear with bright green shoes?
Because the colour of these heels is so bold, I’ve stuck to a black and cream colour palette for the rest of the outfit, although the print on the trousers is almost as bold as the colour of the shoes!
What to wear with bright green shoes:
I actually ordered these Boden trousers a few weeks ago, because I really loved the stripe print. I also loved the quality, but unfortunately the fit wasn’t quite right for me, so I had to return them. They’re such a fun style, though, that I may well re-order them in a different size when I have some spare cash – or when I next stumble across a Boden discount code, whichever comes first! And perhaps also the polka dot version. Well, you can never have too many pairs of polka dot pants, can you?
