Next shoes ‘point’ the way this season

This season, it seems it may be time to turn your back on those cute, round toed shoes. Safe and pretty they may be, but this season it seems the emphasis is on making a point. Pointed toes with a dangerous and sexy edge are making their presence felt, and whether you opt for flats, skyscraper or kitten heels, or even a wedge, it seems your toes have to be coming to a point.

Next have recently launched ‘The Shoe Room’ on their fabulous website, and have a whole section dedicated to points. Taking a look at The Shoe Room is a bit like walking into the Haribo factory if you have a sweetie fetish, you are quite literally spoiled for choice when you try to choose just one pair. (I dare you to try.)

There are animal print designs (my current wish list fave.), metallics of all shades, snake effect boots, hot pink suede, floral print courts, glittery flats..I could literally go on and on. The range is wide, the quality is great, and the prices are the usual Next value. ‘The Shoe Room’ is certainly one place I wouldn’t mind being stranded in overnight (topical note there for the man stranded in Waterstones.). Imagine having a Carrie Bradshaw moment with all those shoes…

These are some of the shoes that I would personally love to be unwrapping on December 25th this year, I’d love to know if you have a particular favourite pair. Maybe you don’t do pointed toes at all? Would love to know your thoughts.

Fashion Focus – Next New Season Coats and Jackets

It has been such a beautiful day, with blue skies and a sunshine brightening up the day. But returning home this evening, there was most definitely a chill in the air, to remind us that we are now in Autumn, and the realms of an Indian Summer. So while it is quite OK to keep wearing the sandals at the moment, the days of wearing our coats is just around the corner, and we need to keep a jacket to hand for those chillier days just in case.

Next have launched their Autumn/Winter collection, and it contains some really exceptional Autumn jackets, and a great range of Winter coats. We are still seeing a lot of the soft pink that was so popular last year (maybe because there were so many sell outs last year?) and biker styles are also still strong in the popularity stakes. Funnel and higher necks are also featured, these are great as you don’t necessarily need to add a scarf, and I also think they look good over a little black dress for evening occasions.

Expect to see capes featuring strongly, as well as faux fur in a range of colours, from soft cream to (you’ve guessed it), even more pink.

With collections now hitting stores, now is the perfect time to forward plan your winter wardrobe around the coat that catches your eye.
