Arrow Shoe Stopper: Picking the Right Pair

Even the most spectacular dress will lose its impact if not matched with the right pair of shoes. Hence, it is only smart to stock up on these versatile essentials.

Essentials: Basic loafers, ballerinas and wedges get my vote. Block heels in an open-toe style and a pair of comfortable open slippers are also essential.

Colours to Swear By: Summers are about being bright and quirky. So opt for fruity colours like red, aqua, peach, orange, light green, and of course, both bright and dull shades of pink.

Must-Haves for Work and Play: For work, it's best to wear pumps with low heels. This lends an element of femininity, without applying pressure on the feet. One could also opt for a pair of kitten heels. Loafers are also a good alternative. A must-have for parties is an architectural heel in a bright colour. It offers the right touch of sophistication.

Au Courant: Since it's summer, the best footwear is something that lets your feet breathe. The hottest trend this season is flats-flip-flops, sling backs or Roman sandals. At night you can slip your feet into mules or peep-toes. They are comfortable, fashionable and support versatile looks. Depending on the colour and texture, they can be worn to a casual gathering or to a formal event. For ardent admirers of heels, there is an entire world filled with chunky heels varying from wedges to transparent heels. Choose your type depending on your comfort level.

Stylish Comfort: Opt for colour blocking in your most favourite pair of footwear. Neons with pastels or a funky colour contrast can add the chicest touch to even flats. Also, when buying a pair of shoes, try them on and walk around to check if the design complements your comfort too.


This trend made a breakthrough and due to the style and comfort that it lends, the ballerina is here to stay. With its not too casual, not too dressy persona, ballerinas have evolved into many a fancy avatar.

We love: This Roberto Cavalli pair is über stylish and will help you unleash the wildness, subtly!


This is middle ground for those who can't negotiate very high heels. With style aplenty, they still ensure that your heels and ankles stay happy.

We love: The simplicity of this pair by Marc Cain which makes it wearable with any day-time outfit. A perfect summertime treat!


No matter what one may say, slipping into a pair of flats makes you feel like a princess, even though it's contrary to the stereotype. The ease with which you can walk around trumps the strut any day!

We love: Just Cavalli beautifully blends animal print with neon, ticking off all the trends on the checklist.


Loafers and Brogues

Androgyny has made way for some truly stellar entrants. Loafers and brogues are designed for those looking for a soul-to-sole connection.

We love: The patent leather, faded-finish brogues with tassels have definitely secured high ranking on the fashion ladder.

Up-to-the-knee or ankle-grazing, boots have an unbeaten charm that is indeed hard to keep away from. Such is their enigma that they bring an instant touch of glamour.

Kitten heels

If you're not convinced by high heels, yet refuse to compromise on fashion, then kitten heels are your best bet. Infused with oomph, you'll be celebrating fashion in your own unique way.


Regarded as a style staple for scores of years, a stiletto is every lady's dream come true. Even if shoe maniacs collected these in each colour and pattern, their greed would find no satiation.

We love: This drool-worthy Jimmy Choo pair in red! Such a wardrobe essential!


Pump it up! Versatile and fascinating, pumps have formed a world of their own. Sleek, broad, plain, patterned, shiny, matte-whatever their key attribute, they make your heart melt like butter.

We love: Known to create classic pumps, this leopard print heel by Christian Louboutin is sure to find many a prey.
