Controversial trend: The chunky heel sandal

We’ve seen the S/S 14 catwalks devoted to the flatform, but making its way along the runway is another style that you’ll either love or hate: the chunky heel sandal. Championing the chunky heeled shoe, designer Marc Jacobs used these as a stylish way to toughen up this season’s sugary-sweet pastels and ladylike lace trends. The sandals were worn with feminine frocks or styled with sport-luxe trousers to add a feminine flourish. Influential trendsetters and style icons like Diane Kruger, Fearne Cotton and Mary-Kate Olson have already been spotted sporting this new footwear. They’ve incorporated this unusual take on sandals into their everyday wardrobe by complementing them with a statement dress or flare style trousers. If you’re questioning whether you should part with your favourite court heels or cork-bottom wedges in favour of the trend, don’t fear! Despite the chunky heel, you’ll still be able to create fun and flirty looks. Strap detailing gives these sandals a sexy aesthetic, while the thick platform base adds an element of functionality to the mix. Whether your summer wardrobe is filled with floral prints, pastel shades, lace textures or even classic monochrome, you’ll find the right pair of chunky heel sandals for you from tReds. This fashion-forward footwear store will have the right shoes for you. If you’ll be sporting the chunky heel sandal, like all active fashion followers, you’ll know to...
