THE GRANNY PUMP

When it comes to footwear, fashion doesn’t always favour comfort… but meet the shoe of spring/summer 16 - the glove shoe aka the granny pump. The glove shoe first appeared on the fashion radar last summer, courtesy of Celine and where the designers lead the high-street follows. Upon first seeing them, they don’t look like the most flattering of footwear choices and admittedly they won’t be for everyone, but worn the right way they will be a stylish addition to your spring/summer wardrobe. So, how to wear them? Always wear with bear legs and if wearing with trousers, show your ankle. Wear with a pair of cropped kick flared jeans and chunky knit now or add to a denim skirt and t-shirt in the summer, either way they add the right amount of granny chic and a whole load of comfort to your outfit.

ACCESSORIES EDIT - FRINGING

The fringing trend has been around for a few seasons now and it’s set to continue this autumn/winter. Accessories are the perfect way to wear this trend and for me it will always be a good addition to your wardrobe. I have a fringed handbag and leather jacket, both of which I’ve had for over five years and they always add that something special to the most basic of outfits. For me, that’s the key to wearing fringing - keep the rest of it simple and let your fringing do the talking.

WARDROBE HERO - TRAINERS

Wardrobe Hero, Wardrobe staples, Stylish mum, FootwearEmma CarrComment

Gone are the days when trainers were worn solely by those that go to the gym. With the rise of the Sports Luxe trend, trainers have slowly become a wardrobe staple for the fashion conscious. They are certainly a wardrobe staple for me, which is why they are one of my Wardrobe Hero’s. The right pair of trainers can elevate your look in an effortless way, not to mention that they are incredibly comfortable - which is why I spend most of my time in them! Stylish and comfortable, what’s not to love?
