With the style of weddings changing so much this year we’ve noticed lots of you are shunning the stiletto and opting for a flat shoe or smaller heel instead. Beyond its obvious practical benefits, a low heeled shoe can create an incredibly chic and modern look. Here’s our top pick of shoes with a flat or lower heel, to suit all budgets.
THE KITTEN HEEL
Adds a tiny bit of height whilst still feeling super comfortable. Pair with BM 005 in ivory for a sleek civil look.
BM 005 // HALTER MIDI, THE OWN STUDIO £240. Shoes from top to bottom; Arket Slingback Kitten Heel pumps £150, Vita Grace Valentina Pearl Embellished Kitten Heel £59, Manolo Blank Maysale Suede Mules £595
THE POINTY FLAT
A classic flat shape, these pointy flats elongate the foot to create an elegant line. These would compliment wider palazzo trousers as well as more tailored options. Pair with STYLE 007, our signature crepe jumpsuit, for a directional wedding look.
STYLE 007 // JUMPSUIT, THE OWN STUDIO £990. SHOES - From L-R top to bottom; Aquazurra Bow Tie Ballet Flats £440, Balenciaga BB Slingback Ballerinas £585, Manolo Blahnik Hangisiflat £765, Mango Black tip ballerinas £35
THE MULE OR COURT
If you still want a small heel, a low heeled mule is the perfect in-between shoe. Go black to keep it looking ultra sleek and modern. Or try a court shoe like these by Amina Muaddi (which have been on our wishlist forever). She specialises in heels that flare open like a bell (giving more support than a stiletto). Her heels do not go above 9.5cm either so are a beautiful mid-heel option. For pure minimalism pair with STYLE 021, our silk crepe wrap.
STYLE 021 // SILK CREPE WRAP, THE OWN STUDIO £2250. Shoes from top to bottom; Reike Nen £440, By Far Tanya Suede Mules £305, Amina Muaddi buckle detail pointed pumps £1,184 (second hand options available via Vestiare) Neous Situla Leather Sandals £185
Perfect for dancing and lends an effortless relaxed vibe to your party look. Pair with STYLE 024 our sequin mini and party the night away.
STYLE 024 // SEQUIN MINI DRESS, THE OWN STUDIO, £850. Shoes from top to bottom; New Balance Casablanca 327 £140, Prada Logo Detailed Sneakers £460, Nike Air Force 1 Pixel leather sneakers £95
Elevate a traditional ballet pump with a cool modern silhouette, such as BM 008 in ivory. For a more relaxed civil wedding this would look amazing with an oversized vintage leather jacket slouched over your shoulders and a cool pair of sunnies. Chanel ballet pumps are the best; you can find cheaper second hand options on Vestiare, Depop or eBay.
BM 008 // MIDI SLIP IN IVORY, THE OWN STUDIO, £210. Shoes from top to bottom, Chanel Ballet Pumps - Vestiare £250, Pretty Ballerinas Rosario blue pumps £75, Roger Vivier Patent Gommette Ballet Flats £430
