Falling head over heels with Beyond Skin
I won’t lie, when it comes to shoes I know what I like and rarely stray from that. However there are a few pairs from Beyond Skin’s new AW collection that have led me to question whether I should be more adventurous!
The LouLou purple faux leather mid heel is simply beautiful. The detail is incredible: the purple laces are finished with a golden ring and the faux leather has been layered perfectly. And the colour itself is sophisticated, yet warming, making these shoes ideal office wear to get you through the colder months. Combining all these features with the sharp shape, I genuinely believe that these shoes would add some style to any outfit!
Want the ‘wow factor’ then the Maggie – Pink spot pony may be more to your taste. Handmade in Spain from recycled suede, cotton and faux leather, these shoes are bound to impress with their bright colouring and banana heel. The Maggie style comes in a variety of colours and patterns, meaning that if you wish to be a little more subtle with your footwear, then you can still enjoy the shoes shape in the classic black.
I can't forget the quirky Rafa heels, which comes in black recycled suede with three faux patent buttons embellishing the outer side of the bootie. These shoes are the definition of office chic in my book with their 4” stiletto heel, stain resistance and durability meaning they are likely to become a staple in many winter wardrobes. So whether you want style, sophistication or something a little bit different, Beyond Skin’s Autumn/Winter collection is looking to be a great crowd pleaser.
