How to style slingbacks for 2012

  • Flat T-bars are 2012’s shape of the season. Inject some glam into your look with statement embellishment, colour and print
  • T-bar leather sandals are perfect for summer sun, whilst killer heels add the perfect dose of glam to your Saturday night outfit. 
  • 2012’s latest styles reference the Cuban and chunky heels of the early 20th century and have retro references in the silks and satin fabrics and rich colours used. Aztec and art deco prints give a nod to the twenties 
  • To appear slimmer or add height, wear slingbacks with a heel or wedge.
  • To work the look with formal clothes, shop for slingbacks in patent and leather styles. 
  • T-bar shoes in bright, statement colours can totally make an outfit or add a focal point to an ensemble. This season, pastels and tropical hues are totally on trend.
  • Embellishment just as gems, tassels, cut outs, piping and cutouts bring your look band up to date. Take a cue from Jimmy Choo who’s upped the ante with acetate slithers on brown leather. 
  • Bold prints and solid colours are big news this year. Designer favourites this year include animal, tribal and floral print. 
  • Polka dots, glitter and braided leather all contribute to a luxe look and were the focus of shoes at Lanvin, Jimmy Choo and Marni.

Delivery and returns

It is always best to check online independent retailers’ delivery and returns policy before buying T-bar shoes. UK policy states that any purchase made online comes with a seven day ‘cooling off’ period where you’re able, by law, to return any online goods. Many retailers extend this to 28 or 30 days so it’s always best to check before you buy.
