Classic courts

Classic courts - shoes with style

As it’s now mid-end of January I would imagine that not many people will be all that keen on buying too many new winter pieces and perhaps will be turning their attention to warmer-weather style. I predict, that like me, they may now have their mind towards spring/summer clothing collections on the high street; scouting and wondering what key trends will be hot this year.

I am already currently lusting over the new Hush collection and also the new range in Zara currently too.

Last year I wrote a lot on my blog about my intentions to create more of a capsule wardrobe for myself due to getting a little fed up of fast-fashion. My main aim at the end of last year was to have more pieces in my wardrobe that either: a) meant that I wore them more often, b) reduced the time I spent getting ready in the morning because it was easier to pick out outfits, and c) have quality items that would last me.

I went for pieces such as black jeans, camel coat, handbag, blazer, etc and really have felt better about my wardrobe and style since making those decisions.

The court shoe, a hero

Another capsule wardrobe key piece today features a shoe. The classic courts.

These are something that I absolutely need in my wardrobe – they are a bit of wardrobe hero – the classic, heeled court shoe. Nowadays, because I am a busy Mum of young twins, I don’t get to wear these kind of shoes very often – however, every woman needs a pair of these in their closet for events such as weddings, dinner dates, date nights and work meetings. Even though I don’t wear heels very much anymore I do reach for them whenever I need a smarter shoe, or heeled shoe for an outfit.

And the best bit about courts is that they will NEVER ever go out of fashion.

I’ve opted for black – simply because it’s the best colour for a capsule wardrobe as it will go with 99.9% of my outfits. The great thing about black too is that it’s flattering, elegant and sophisticated. You’re also more likely to go off something a little ‘fancy’ too.
