Finding shoes to match an outfit that is anything other than black or navy is not easy. You either compromise and wear black with everything, or you buy some ghastly shape that is the right shade. These shoes by Ravel not only come in more interesting colours - lilac, mint and orange (as well as white, black or navy) - but they are also extremely stylish (I confess to being rather impressed by how well they are made). How much more perfect a shoe you could find for a summer wedding outfit, I do not know. Ravel do lots of styles in this "fashionable" square toe shape and prices are low. AB
