River Island sandals, £65
I think I’ve loved more or less ALL of the pairs of stripe shoes which have been filling the shelves recently, courtesy of the popularity of the monochrome trend, but although I hate to play favourites with shoe brands, I reckon River Island and Dune have probably done this look best. I actually showed you a pair of striped court shoes from River Island last month, and this is basically the sandal version, featuring the same, narrow stripes.
This is another example of the ‘barely there’ look, although I’m not sure that’s really a great way to describe such a bold print. The single strap at the front is certainly “barely there”, but unlike the gold or nude versions of this style which are designed to be almost invisible on the foot, these will definitely stand out.
With monochrome shoes, I’m always tempted to go for an equally monochrome outfit, but these will work with any bright colour. I think they’d look fantastic with cobalt or red, but there are so many options with this kind of colourway that I’m sure you won’t have any problem working out what to wear with them!
