Tinfish Trendwatch: Blue Suede Shoes

We all know how cool Elvis was, right? So when he sang about blue suede shoes, it was for good reason. Stylish and practical? We're all over that.

As an alternative to the harshness of black, blue runs the gamut of shades from the vivid ultramarine of these Vagabond Edie pumps to the dark navy of these Base London Catch moccasins meaning there's a blue for every occasion.

For Work:

'Florence' by Vagabond, £69.99
Make blue suede shoes work for you this season. Not as harsh as black and an alternative to brown, the dark navy blue of shoes like Vagabond's Florence wedge and Paolo Vandini's Taunton brogue are perfect for wearing with lighter office wear and a great way to inject a bit of colour.
'Taunton' by Paolo Vandini, £69.99

For Play:

'Tanum' by H by Hudson, £94.99
H by Hudson's Tanum is the perfect smart casual trainer for the summer, fusing the smartness of the suede and patent leather detailing with the springy casualness of a trainer sole. Dare we even suggest that you could style them out for more casual work days? Yes we dare!

Doing the same smart casual job is Lotus' Jenna low wedge loafer. We love Lotus shoes for their comfort and generous fit. Got wide feet? These will fit you a treat. The generosity of fit is also a bonus for those hot sunny days when you've been on your feet all day and they swell a bit before you can get your shoes off! We've all been there.
'Jenna' by Lotus, £49.99
Inspired to step away from black? Come and see us and step into our blue suede shoes! 

All styles available online and in-store subject to availability.

Tinfish Loves... Fabe by FLY London

One of the joys of warmer weather is the explosion of colour and they don't come much more colourful than these excellent Fabe slipper style loafers by Tinfish favourite FLY London.

We love the easy style of them that manages to be casual and decadent at the same time. FLY London make shoes that are beyond comfortable and we can quite see these skipping around some palatial villa. We don't have one of those though but we think they'll look just as good in our office!

For that South of France vibe, wear them with palazzo pants and a casually tied silk scarf. Or for a more everyday look that still manages to be opulent, we've paired them with some super pretty trousers from Topshop and a luxe tux style shirt from Zara.
Floral jacquard trousers, Topshop, £45; tuxedo shirt, Zara, £39.99; Fabe loafers, Tinfish Shoes,  £78.99
This is a great summer look that will work for any occasion. Bring some glamour to the office or to a long weekend lunch.

Fabe by FLY London is available in store and online now!
