What to wear when it's not warm enough for sandals, but too warm for shoes? A sling-back, with bare feet or nude coloured tights. These are particularly fine and sleek and would look super-duper with black or white capri pants. This green reminds one of something edible, like a fruit lolly. These also come in beige snake print (pounds 169) and black suede (pounds 169), but why choose them when you can have this delicious pair? These shoes are also good if you want to get into wearing acid colours (big, big, big this summer) but are too scared to. AB
