11,000 people have bought these shoes and we want them too

Last week, NET-A-PORTER gave us a sneak peek into the major trends for autumn/winter 2019, including the must-have products they're stocking up on, based on the most talked-about runway shows, as well as what the NAP customer is buying.

You won't be surprised to know shoes are high on the list, and while slouchy boots will be big news next season, right now is all about strappy sandals.

According to Elizabeth von der Goltz, Global Buying Director, over 11,000 people bought naked sandals last season, with The Row's Bare Leather Sandals being the most popular.

The site has now wisely re-stocked it in several colours, including coral, yellow and white and of course I want them all.

If you've already got a pair but are thinking of adding to the collection, the likes LOQ and ATP have interesting takes on the trend.

For those thinking way ahead, the natural progression for AW19 is the square toe. Elizabeth recommends By Far, Gianvito Rossi, Neous and Bottega Veneta for everything from two-tone boots to neutral mules.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
