Formal-the Most Important Event of the Year

It is that time of the year again where we are thinking about donning our formal attire, stuffing our faces on a three course meal and dancing the night away with our friends.

School formals, work formals, charity dinners, if you have the outfit then we have the shoes! As we are closing off the Autumn/Winter season and opening up the Spring/Summer one, you have lots to choose from: pee toes, closed in courts, heel in toe out and a variety of styles in between. Take your pick from traditional styles, neutral tones, metallic or colour clash with our new styles from Millie & Co.


If you like traditional formal style shoes then look no further than our Glamour range. These styles are made for occasion wear. Glamour JENNIFER is one of my favourites. This high heel (4”) is made from the highest quality textile and has the most fabulous jewel encrusted toe detail. The open toe teamed with the fine strap detailing across the foot keep it from looking heavy whilst holding the foot in place. The closed in heel keeps the foot from slipping out and the metallic finish with the satin look back heel cup keep it classic yet modern. Choose from a soft gold or silver, these have a matching bag, JENNY available, which compliments the shoe perfectly.

The fine lace detailed overlay looks so classy and is so on trend for all occasions. Choose the black to keep it classic or go for the burgundy to set off your LBD and add just a hint of colour. The fine slender patent finished heels keep it elegant whilst the cushioned footbed provides all the comfort you need to dance long into the night. Pair it with the matching clutch bag which comes with an added shoulder chain link strap.

Team with a matching bag or a simple box clutch for a bang on trend look.

Everything works here, from the on trend pointed toe, the rich navy suede upper teamed with the lazer cut metallic toe detail and finished perfectly with a glitter heel. The sling back works really well for those ladies who struggle to keep a standard court shoe on the foot. This shoe comes as a set with a matching long clutch. The perfect size for all those formal essential. Get this before they all go as they are flying out!

If you love colour then you need these in your life, whether you have an occasion or not! FRAZER are the perfect barely there sandal. Tan your feet and get a pedicure, these are calling your name!
