Similar Shoe Design

Some commentators have suggested a battle of the luxury brands is brewing, after Dolce & Gabbana’s designer took to social media to note Chanel’s ‘interesting’ similar shoe design.

Stefano Gabbana highlighted a lookalike comparison between a D&G shoe in 2014 with a style that debuted at Chanel’s ‘La Modernité de l’Antiquité’ Cruise show yesterday.

While no official statement has been made from either party, Stefano Gabbana, one-half of the design duo, re-posted a snap from Who Did It First on his personal Instagram.

The fancy footwear in question? Both brand’s were clearly inspired by ancient Greece – endorsing heels shaped like Ionic columns.

Gabanna did sign off his caption with a heart emoji though. So, it could just be harmless fash-un fun after all…

‘It feels great to be able to give our customers such a nice looking and versatile collection, made from low-impact materials,’ says Louise Lasson, Creative Director at Weekday. ‘This season sharp simplicity meets sporty elements, giving way to refined details such as ultra-thin straps, fine ribbing and cleans lines as well as sporty details such as high-neck lines, thick straps, raw elastic bands and buckles.

‘A vibrant colour palette of yellow, red, pink, tan and black encourages a mix-and-match approach,’ she says. ‘Creating a range of options that are both modern and flattering.’

If your social calendar is filling up with nuptials faster than you can say ‘I will’, make sure you’re the most stylish guest on the wedding circuit by following our oh-so-simple fashion rules.

We’ve scouted out the most stylish wedding guest dresses on the UK high street and beyond (plus tracked down some chic trouser, top and skirt options for mixing and matching to make your outfits go further).

A wedding is your chance to wear your favourite colour. White is reserved for the bride (duh) – unless you’re channelling all-white ‘backwards’ satin suit Celine Dion wore to the 1999 Oscars. #NeverForget.

If you have a fair few weddings to go to, invest in a jacket that will see you through them all. Whether it be a classic blush tie blazer or a statement long-line floral coat, you can just interchange simple dresses or skirts and tops underneath and know that you’ll look sharp every time. Look outside the high street for your jacket to ensure every Tina, Doris and Harriet aren’t wearing the same one – either go hunting in vintage shops, splash out on a ready-to-wear number or (our personal preference), try TheOutnet where you can pick up a designer bargain that will last forever.

You’ll notice at most weddings that your lovely bride and groom prove the rule ‘opposites attract’. The same is true for accessories, so avoid matching bags, shoes and jewels to each other and brighten up a simple one-colour dress with bold and bright mis-matched accessories.

Here comes the…

While we want you to be the most stylish guest in the chapel, just don’t upstage the bride. Bad form. Avoid giant hats and statement headwear. And flouro-brights are probably best left untouched, too.
