Welcome to the second in our series of Upper Street Trend posts; this time it’s the turn of a fashion favourite that seems to have become something of a perma-trend – colour block. Taking colourful contrasts and blocking them together beautifully was a catwalk must do for SS12 designers such as Roksanda Illincic, Balenciaga and Matthew Williamson.
Celebrate Spring / Summer 2012 in shades of tangerine, hot pink, yellow and rich cobalt blues. Experiment with brights for your shoes and step out into the sun ready to tread the path of the fashion forword in a pair of ultra stylish heels.
Show off your summer bright pedicure in these shocking pink Italian satin peep toes adorned with an ultra purple satin flower – the only decision you have left to make is which colour to paint your toes! Add zingy flashes of yellow snake and patent leather to an elegant cobalt pointed court for an instant statement shoe guaranteed to turn heads.
Colour block from head to toe by wearing a dress in zesty orange or hot pink and then finish off with these elegant vivid green suede round toe courts with an emerald metallic ankle strap that’s been sprinkled with Swarovski diamante. Be a colourful wedding guest and colour block your heels with a pair of eye popping peep toe platforms in fuchsia leather and tangerine snake – Upper Street shoes are always a talking point at weddings!
Conquer two trends in one with these turquoise suede platform sandals with a metallic gold snakeskin heel and dainty single gilda ankle strap. Colour block trend? Tick. Metallics? Tick! With our bespoke ballet flats there are many ways to design with blocks of gorgeous colour and we love this citrus yellow leather ballet flat with it’s contrasting tangerine patent and leather heart.
