5 chic shoe trends comfortable enough to see you through every single wedding this summer

Shopping for shoes is never an easy task, especially when it comes to wedding season.

Not only does your chosen footwear have to perfectly match your wedding guest dress, but most importantly, it has to be comfortable enough that you aren’t walking around bare foot by the end of the night.

In the past, a low heel has been considered more frumpy than fashionable, but 2019 has seen a plethora of new styles hit the shelves.

From cute kitten heels to statement mules, this year’s silhouettes are both sensible and stylish. The difficult decision is which pair to pick. 

1. Sexy straps

Leave those classic court shoes at the back of your wardrobe. If you’re searching for some trusty black heels to see you through wedding season, look no further than a pair of ’90s-inspired strappy sandals. Championed by designers including The Row and Staud, it’s the most Instagrammable shoe of the summer.

Mixing minimal spaghetti straps with a trendy square toe, & Other Stories has aced the chic shoe. And, from 8cm stilettos to 5cm block cylinder heel, the Scandi label has catered for every heel height.

Perfect for injecting some personality into a classic ensemble, the shoes are sure to come in handy for all summer occasions. First featured by designers including Jacquemus, Rejina Pyo and Balmian, a luxe pair will set you back over £500. Luckily, the high street has quickly put its own spin on the trend and you can pick up a bold pair of asymmetric heels for as little as £29.99.
