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.

Anthropologie Fiery Foliates Espadrilles

If you're growing weary of winter-weight footwear then allow your thoughts to turn to summer's frivolous shoes in general and these Anthropologie Sandals in particular.

They have a cool retro vibe which pays homage to two classic seventies styles; the clog and the espadrille. The upper part of the shoe is silk with an eye-catching crimson leaf print that is repeated on the ankle strap and the soles are wooden, with a manageable 10cm heel.

Perfect to give you a bit of height with this season's midi-skirts, flared jeans and peasant blouses.

The shoes cost £178 and are available from Anthropologie here
