Cheryl Cole wears them. Kate Middleton wears them. Heck, even Caroline Flack wears them. There’s no denying nude courts have been having a moment in the last year, and I can see why. I’ve only recently jumped onto the nude court shoe bandwagon, and it’s crazy that it took me so long. They go with everything – everything – in my wardrobe, from dresses to jeans to trousers. Seriously, I’ve hardly worn any other shoe in the past month. I’ve worn them to business meetings, lunch with friends, the pub, work. I even wore them to the Vogue Festival to see Victoria Beckham speak (all the real trendies were in sports trainers but I rocked in my classic courts.)
This pair (above) are from Daniel Footwear. As well as having near-magical leg-lengthening powers, they add instant polish to a normally casual or dull outfit. I’ve taken to keeping them under my desk and slipping them on if I have an important meeting to go to. This is me in my office, looking quite typical for me on a random May day. Striped top, skinny jeans, leopard scarf and necklace. The brilliant thing is: this is the kind of outfit I’d wear at the weekend with some hi-top trainers. But the nude heels instantly make it an office-worthy look. MAGIC. So I’m naming these shoes as the Ultimate Mum Shoe. Mums can throw them on and look instantly ‘together’ – isn’t that what we all strive for, after all?
Psst! Daniel Footwear sent me these amazing shoes to feature, but obv all opinions are my own.
