Grid Prints and Block Heels

It’s amazing what a new pair of shoes can do, especially when they are higher than what you would usually go for but in the form of block heels. These T-bar Block Heels by Next features beautiful soft smooth leather, thin and dainty ankle straps and a sturdy 10 centimetre block heel. Hands down my most luxurious pair from Next to date!

This style of heel is surprisingly comfortable especially when compared to the stiletto varieties…

My styling suggestions for strappy block heels?

My instant reaction when these arrived was that I had to pair it with a monochrome outfit. Black trousers are staples in my wardrobe so I went out and picked up the check print top from Capture to layer underneath a linen blazer or even a lightweight cardigan like this white textured one. A bold lip is my favourite way to add colour to monochrome looks but definitely pick up some tips from this previous post by Morgan on striking makeup for work.
