Block Heel Sandals from Wallis


For seventies chic there's nothing that quite lifts an outfit like footwear inspired by the era, providing an instant transformation for everything from flares to maxi dresses. That doesn't mean every pair has to be a dangerously stacked platform, though, as proven by these seventies-look Block Heel Sandals from Wallis.

The use of a thick-heeled, wood effect sole helps to create a mainstream retro chic instantly, with patent leather uppers in a classic burnt orange have that playful decadence of disco influence down pat. The chunky straps and t-bar are an ideal post-sixties style point, providing practicality and comfort at the same time.

Get yours from Wallis for £45.

Meg Oxford Shoes from American Apparel


There's often a grey area where retro fashion is concerned, where enthusiasts argue between looking like a hip vintage kid and really rather old fashioned. If the latter has you screaming "But that's the point!" in your head, these Meg Oxford Shoes from American Apparel might just be right up your street.

Daring to veer from the tried and tested retro footwear styles like Mary Janes and brogues, these classic American dance shoes are made by Tic-Tac-Toe.
