Last week I attended the Dune London s/s16 (https://www.facebook.com/DuneLondonSA/)  media launch in Woodstock and we were treated to the latest trends in shoes and bags which has just launched into stores country wide this week. The closest store in CT, southern suburbs is in Canal Walk but they have stores nation wide and also stock certain Edgars stores. There are quite a few fashion trends happening this summer in clothing followed on closely by accessories and shoes, expect clean lines and soothing pale tones which bring a romantic element into the mix. You will find metal trims, laser cut outs and tie up fastenings and then on the opposite end of the spectrum expect perspex paired with wood. Metallics are a very key trend this summer from cooler silver to your warmer bronze tones. Heel interest is also very key to shoes this summer. Here I have selected my absolute favourite must have pairs for every occasion.

This nude textured pair of heeled sandals is fabulous worn with a busy printed dress, this heel is just the right height for everyday wear and the nude colour can be worn with anything.

Ditto goes for this one as well in terms of nude colour and heel height, love this and is on my wish list.

Over time you will come to see this style of shoe more often and it is called a slider which is the combination of a moccasin and open heeled shoe, great for that transitional period where it is still to cold to expose your entire foot.

I love this navy pair of sandals especially the fact that it is navy as I often tend to find that navy shoes can look dowdy or just plain wrong, unlike this one!

I am mad about this tan wood stacked heel sandal as it is a fabulous way to upgrade from a wedge to this, worn with jeans or dresses it will give your look a sexy edge. Also on my wish list!

This one is great for an evening shoe as it is not sky scraper high but just manageable to walk in and oh so sexy ie car to bar!

I am always fond of a classically styled neutral colour bag especially when it comes to investment pieces but when you have them all then a bag like this above definitely adds a fun element to your summer look.

I like the combination of orange and neutral, very seaside chic.

These fun bag or key chains are cheap, cute and playful to add to your bag for that little bit extra.
