what shoes to wear with tapered trousers

One of the most annoying fashion dilemmas ever: how to wear your trousers with the right footwear? And yes we do mean trousers. We’re ruling jeans out of the equation (technically not a trouser anyway), and the same goes for heels – not everyone can withstand them like VB.

It’s a constant battle, from cigarette to wide leg trousers. The list of things to think about is endless: the shape, the length, the fabric, the way they sit, and there seems to be no saviour in the mirror… The more you look at the flare you’ve paired with a trainer, the more you feel uncertain about the whole outfit all together, and then comes the panic wardrobe tantrum.

So to avoid this kind of meltdown, we’ve made a list of some lustworthy pairings, and because we’re so good to you, where to buy it all now.
