Prada floral sandals, £531
Floral print starts to appear on shoes at around this time every year, but luckily there are as many types of floral print as there are shoes to put them on, so there’s never a chance to get bored with it.
I really like Prada’s use of floral on these ankle-stap sandals. The black background gives the print a slightly harder edge than the softer pastel shades we so often see, and it helps create a more sophisticated, dressed-up feel. These shoes also add interest with the half d’orsay cut, plus the slim ankle strap, both of which create a really interesting silhouette, and the kind of shoe that would translate easily from day to evening. With that said, these have a 4.5″ stiletto heel and no platform to balance it out, so you probably shouldn’t plan on doing a whole lot of walking in them!
What to wear with these shoes?
I think these would look wonderfully dramatic worn with stark black, but when I came across this dress, I was really drawn to the simple shape, which is a nice foil for the busy print. The blue also picks out the colour of the flower, while the green on the handbag is also present in the print on the shoe, helping to tie it all together:

They are lovely, although that heel would probably do me in.
