The 4 Sandal Trends That Are Taking Over London Right Now

When they aren’t wearing trainers (or something fancier plucked from the stash under one’s desk for the evening), London girls can currently be found pounding the pavements in a range of different sandal styles. We know that because we spend our days staring at outfits on our way to and from work. However, we also have a photographer combing the pavements each and every month to bring you the freshest London street style.

It would appear that comfort is the name of the game this summer, and designers and brands now cater to our city girls’ requirements. Low heels are everywhere, and flats are better than ever. Even the most sensible, super-cushioned hiking styles have climbed up the ranks of style. It’s a good time for everyone’s feet, and I’ve noticed the women in our fair capital are really making the most of it. So long, Kardashian-loved PVC stilettos! Buh-bye, painful Middleton-style court shoes! We’re all about the (high-fashion) orthopaedics now, and our podiatrists are thrilled.

So what are the key sandal styles that stand out right now? I’ve noticed the following footwear trends on the hippest feet and streets of London, which means they’re bound to be happening anywhere else in the UK where well-dressed women congregate. Keep scrolling to see the most hyped-up shoes, and then shop some of the best iterations for yourself.

The 5 New It Bags Our Fashion Friends Are Already Carrying

Nothing gets me giddier than discovering a brand-new designer. It’s the reason I can often find myself in a 2 a.m. Instagram hole, eight pages deep, my Saved folder overflowing with new discoveries. For someone who scouts the internet every day for the best shopping, discovering new brands before they become cult is a serious thrill—and honed skill.

Lately, my Saved folder has been racking up a lot of new handbag designers that are around the £500 mark. Each of their designs feels undoubtedly fresh, a tough feat in the current age of designer it bags and logomania. From the perfect polished top-handle bags to quirky printed mini bags that will make any wedding guest outfit, I’m sharing six new brands you might not have heard of yet but definitely will soon.

Go ahead and see the next big names in the accessories world—with love from my Saved folder to yours.

The 11 High-Street Dresses Ruling Instagram Right Now

Last summer, the high street witnessed a sudden surge of ultra-pretty dresses hitting rails and promptly flying off again. There were certain pieces that appeared to capture the imaginations of Instagram’s coolest up and down the country, resulting in many It frocks becoming almost instantly unavailable due to their popularity. Restocks couldn’t happen fast enough for items like Topshop’s polka-dot pinafore style or ASOS’s green tea dress. Some of these items were such a retail smash over an extended period of time that you’ll find new iterations are still being produced by many affordable brands today.

All of 2018’s best high-street dresses still stand up as quality purchases this year, and we’d urge you to keep wearing them. However, if you’re hunting for newness, we’re here to provide that too.
