No doubt you’ve had the Queen’s Jubilee booked out in your diary for months now, the double bank holiday weekend means we’re making the most of summer’s festivities and the opulent dressing that comes with it.
To commemorate the Jubilee weekend, we’ve specially curated a celebratory collection of classic summer shoes. Red, white, and blue might come as standard, but a grand occasion calls for a sophisticated platinum palette inspired by precious metals and priceless jewels.
Scroll this way to discover royally good wedge sandals for luncheon on the lawn, laidback trainers in cool metallic shades, and summer sandals that will be the crowning glory of this year’s summer collection.
The long weekend is almost here, pop the fizz and dress for Queen and Country …
No Great British summer event is complete without a pair of wedge sandals. Universally flattering and entirely practical, they’re the sandal of choice for country weddings, horse racing, and garden parties (note their lawn-friendly nature).
As Duchess of Cambridge proves, wedge sandals make a great solve-all solution, whether styled with skinny jeans or designer dresses, they’re the staple sandal with a royal seal of approval.
Amabelle: Gold Wedge Mules
The soft golden hue of the Amabelle wedges make them a throw-on-anytime saviour, its entirely neutral shade will add instant flare to every outfit.
Featuring the traditional hallmarks of a classic espadrille like the braided rope heel and soft leather footbed, we’ll be slipping these on with our favourite cotton sundresses for an evening spent sipping spritz.
Alaina: Espadrille Sandals
The Alaina espadrilles are the kind of sandals you’ll find any excuse to wear. It’s your instant shortcut to being the best dressed (and most comfortable) for every summer occasion.
Team these low wedge heels with your trusty denim jeans for an effortless and instant boost to your daytime looks or go for a tiered summer dress when the sun is at its hottest.
With the long weekend on the horizon, you need the footwear that will step you through joyous out-of-office days. Now’s the time to swap your regular white sneaks for platinum-inspired trainers, laden with decadent embellishments and opulent metallic shades.
Be warned, they’ll be the envy of every street party.
Alani: Gold Platform Trainers
The Alani trainers prove that basic needn’t be boring, in fact these gold trainers will reign supreme long after the festivities. Wear them with your voluminous shirred dresses, or if the Great British weather simply isn’t playing ball, a colour-block outfit (inspired by Queen Elizabeth herself) is an absolute must.
Want to smarten up? Just slip on a blazer with your jeans and a striped Breton tee to instantly transform an everyday look into a chic and comfy outfit.
Padova: Metallic Pink Trainers
Lustrous golden tones are made to bask in the sun, and these pastel pink trainers are embossed with a hazy golden finish. Refreshingly different, wear with any combination of denim jeans, dresses or tailored separates, and they'll take you through the events of the long weekend and beyond.
