If wobbling on a 6-inch skinny stiletto heel really isn't your thing on a night out, then here's your answer to summer-ready heels
If wobbling around cobbled pavements in 6-inch heels on a Friday night really isn’t your thing (ours neither!), then feast your eyes on our Top 10 cool-girls’ heels to have you party ready for any summer night out.
Team fashion at Marie Claire are not huge fans of your typical spindly stiletto heel when it comes to going out, so we’re finishing off our outfits with something a little cooler underfoot.
All of our favourite designers have given the clog a go this summer from Gucci to Miu Miu and Saint Laurent. No fear if you’re not planning a splurge on this shoe many of our high- street heros have saved the day! Look out for new-season colours which give the clog the update it needed.
Step away from the towering stripper heel, though – no girls it’s not a good look, however tall it makes you. A slightly lower heel means you have all the more comfort and grace while still looking uber chic. Try to get something a little alternative to the classic; we love a lace-up ankle strap or even a steep slip on. Keep colours and tones quite low-key so that your legs do all the talking. Ooh la la!
Obsessed isn’t even the word when it comes to these Lanvin mules. They combine every element of perfection; a metallic square heel with a textured plated foot.
Fringing is a major thing this summer, so strut your stuff with a swing with these tassel heels from Zara.
The perfect holiday heel; these Loewe shoes are espadrilles’ answer to a wedge. We’re obsessed with this bright blue, but if it’s too much for you they also come in black and white.
In need of something a little more low-key? Then Whistles can help with these mid-block heel shoes with a cute tie. Perfect for the office or after-work drinks.
We are in LOVE. Clog. Check. New-season colour. Check! It’s hard to choose between the orange or the yellow (Topshop do both!), but we’ve fallen hard for this lemon wooden beauty.
Just like her handbags, Paula Cademartori knows how to create standout shoes perfect for a fash-gal. We’re loving the lace-up strapping on shoes this season and couldn’t help but gush over these beauties.
If you’re doing the chic mid heel then do it with this navy mule with yellow strapping – perfect for any outfit and any occasion.
If you see yourself channelling the quirky geek-chic vibe, this loafer slip-on heel is an ideal 70s reference for your wardrobe.
Can we all just take a moment to gush over how cool these red COS heels are? The perfect colour and the perfect shape. These are not to be missed!
For understated, effortless chic with a little difference then go for these nude strappy courts from Uterqüe. The perfect summer colour to go with any outfit.
