Now in ox blood, which is a popular trend colour, and additionally it also comes in different textures. These can turn any denim and white top combo from “nice” to casually sophisticated.
There’s also a movement with more masculine ladies loafers that take inspiration from the retro men’s velvet slipper with tassels. Made with a feminine silhouette, it’s perfect for the office, worn either with pants or a skirt.
Moving onto boots, the Clarks collection – throwbacks to the late 80’s, with the rebellious biker boot. If there was ever a shoe-shortcut to cool, the biker boot is it.

The Clarks Mezze Rose is exactly this – tough and thoroughly rock ‘n’ roll.
