Block Heels

For the ultimate in style-meets-comfort, look to one of this season’s block heels. Loved by fashion editors the Hollywood set alike (they were all over the red carpet at Cannes), these chunky-look, open-toed sandals have officially usurped the stiletto for SS15.

We’ll be snapping up H&M’s lower-heeled black option for easy day dressing (they’ll look perfect with a pair of on-trend culottes), while Alexander Wang’s higher sling-back offering in flattering nude will help lengthen our pins come evening.

With plenty of luxe and high street options around, there’s a style to suit every sartorial occasion, so browse our pick of the best below and get ready for seriously happy feet.
