Animal Print Pumps: Spring Summer 2018’s Edit

This season, animal prints are once again ruling the fashion circuit although, let’s be honest, they’ve since moved a step up the holy fashion grail and become a timeless classic rather than fashion trend. 

Nevertheless, fashionistas continue to up their sartorial skills with go-to animal print, particularly when it comes to footwear. From leopard to Dalmatian to animal inspired applique, these wonderfully wild prints are adorning summer shoes from classic ballet pumps and ballerina flats to comfy loafers, light weight espadrilles and smart fold up shoes. Take a look at our edit below and our round up of the styles that we’re crushing on!

Uber Cool Leopard Print

Cocorose London’s classic Harrow ballerinas make for the ultimate ballet pump. With a pony hair (cow) leather upper and almond shaped toe capped in patent black leather, these ballet flats are insanely comfortable due to their double cushioned insoles, padded Achilles heels and concealed wedge heel.

The Clapham flats in leopard print pony hair (cow) leather adopt a more loafer style silhouette, with a longer vamp and more pointed toe. One of Cocorose’s best-selling styles, these comfortable loafers can be dressed up for meetings or dressed down with jeans and a T for a cosy Sunday pub lunch.

The Carnaby loafers, part of Cocorose’s portable Travel collection of fold up shoes, are ideal for commuting or travelling. Folding into a matching leopard print travel purse, these smart foldable shoes take up little to no space and offer incredible comfort, style and function for busy, modern women on-the-go.

Chic Dalmatian Print

Dalmatian print’s fashionable monochrome palette crosses Cocorose’s SS18 collection of ballerinas, slip-ons and loafers. One of Cocorose’s best-selling styles, the Buckingham ballet flats has been updated this season, fusing a classic ballerina silhouette with an on-trend pop of fuchsia.

Keeping in line with comfort and style on-the-go, these casually chic and sleek Shoreditch slip-ons with white soles are ideal for busy, metropolitan women. With a hint of sports luxe appeal, these slip-ons work their way up the athleisure trend scale by marrying on-trend animal print with a laid back, urban edge, making them ideal for running errands around town.

The Clapham loafers in luxurious, silky soft Dalmatian print pony hair (cow) leather is on the cards for being this season’s ultimate, sell out style. The contemporary feel of the loafer shape coupled with the cool splash of animal print ensures these flats would work well with this season’s new denims and fine knits.

Appliqued Peacocks

Appliqued Peacocks

Although not quite an animal print, these flamboyant peacock espadrilles are not to be missed. With mismatch still a big fashion trend, these flirty peacocks will most definitely show off your best colours.

We love them all! Which one is your pick? Which one complements your style? Let us know in the comments below.

How to Keep Your Fold Up Shoes Forever New

A nice pair of fold up shoes is a must have for any woman. Women are in love with fold up shoes as they look stunning with any outfit and are comfortable to wear. But like any other footwear, fold up shoes too get dirty over time. And who wouldn’t want to keep their favourite pair of shoes forever brand new. Read on the tips on how to take care of your fold up shoes.

If you are thinking of throwing your shoes into the washing machine to clean, then beware as this will badly harm your fold up shoes.

The first thing you need to do is to remove the dirt from your shoes using a soft brush. You need to clean your shoes keeping the shoe material and shape in mind. Make sure you do not use any stuff that can harm the material and shape. You may also use a wet cloth to clean your shoes.

If your ballet pumps are made from suede, then never make a mistake of using water to clean them as it will leave a stain on your shoes. You should use a brush made of soft bristles to clean them. 

You can also apply a protection spray after cleaning your shoes so you don’t need a constant brushing. A protection spray can help you to maintain your foldable shoes. But if you want to clean your shoes before using protection spray, you can make a paste at home by mixing washing powder and soda. You may apply this paste on your fold up shoes and then use a cloth or cotton to remove it. Once your shoes are clean, leave them to get dried before you use.

You can apply shoe polish for your leather fold up shoes to protect them, but make sure to choose the right colour that matches with your shoes.

If you are that kind of person who loves to wear shoes without socks, then unpleasant odour is natural. I advise you to wear shoes every alternative day as this will help your shoes to get dry before next wear and get rid of the bad smell.  You can also use talcum powder or washing soda to remove bad smell from your shoes.

During rainy season, our shoes are the first thing to get wet and dirty. It is recommended that at the time of drying keep your shoes away from heat as they can get discoloured and deformed. You can use a crushed newspaper to soak up the moisture in your shoes.
