Tinfish Loves... Zoe by Miista

When we first saw Miista's classic Zoe Oxford shoe in the simply glorious Neptune print, it would be accurate to say that we a) squealed and b) instantly wanted a pair.

Sometimes shoe love is irrational and primal. It just gets to you. It was only afterward that we wondered what the hell we'd wear them with. We've gone for a Designer vs High Street approach to show two different ways to wear them.


Add a twist to classic 60s shapes and sorbet shades with this St Tropez inspired look. The embellishment on the Miu Miu top and the shape of the Paul & Joe trousers are very 60s. We're thinking big hair and a martini or two should be the only other accessories you need! On a budget? Look out for sorbet shades in clean, classic shapes to recreate the look.

High Street

Our High Street take on the look brings a bit more of a modern edge with clean lines and colours to contrast with the abstract softness of the Neptune print. The blank canvas of the khaki wrap round dress by Louche is the perfect frame for the Zoe shoes. The pattern clash from the Topshop bangles is a fun way of complementing colours without being too matchy-matchy. The pop of pink on the River Island bag lifts the whole outfit and will mix and match in with other outfits.

Tinfish Loves.... H by Hudson Horrigan

When we say we love these H by Hudson Horrigan ankle boots, we're not sure there's words enough to convey exactly how much we love them.

They're pretty innocuous looking right? That's part of the appeal. They will go with everything. The gorgeously rich bordeaux colour of the burnished suede is super versatile while the tan straps add a tough girl edge to these Cuban heeled beauty booties.

We've styled them up in three different ways to show off just how awesome they are.

1. Dressed down chic

Cotton twill trousers, £22, ASOS, Blouse, £25.99, Zara, Double buckle bag, £48, Urban Outfitters
This is a look that will take you from Spring to Summer in casual elegance. This is an outfit that can be thrown on and look amazing. We all need go-to outfits like that! Accessorise with a piece of statement jewellery in gold tones.

2. Festival princess

Chelsea Girl floral dress, £25, River Island; Barrel bag, £40, Oliver Bonas; Feather necklace, £16, Hannah Zakari
Be the belle of the festival scene in this outfit which will work equally well in the city. It's little bit retro, a little bit boho, a whole lotta of cool. Wear with tousled beach hair and a go where the wind takes you attitude!

3. Retro office cool

Zig-zag pattern shirt, £35, Joy; Zip wrap skirt, £32, Topshop; Satchel, £38, Warehouse
Add a retro twist to your work wardrobe by mixing patterns and colours. Add some thick colour blocking tights and this is a look that's comfortable but means business!
