Students revolt over newly imposed conservative dress code

Before the week is out... wear this

THE A-LIST may be queuing up for the latest Versace boots (which have allegedly sold out before they've even reached the shops), but frankly it hardly seems worth the bother when you can get the next best thing round the corner. Karen Millen has launched a footwear range. The collection stretches from urban to evening and includes biker-influenced ankle boots, bowling shoes with a red-piped sole and jet-beaded spiked sandals. What are you waiting for?

Wear these

OH THE dilemma. It's too chilly to wear your Birkenstocks with naked feet, but normal socks are just too ... normal. But here's the answer! Toe socks. Although the provenance of these socks is rather medical (the Japanese wear them for arthritis - the toe bits increase circulation) they are the only, only thing to wear with sandals. YMC originally made them to be worn with their foot-shaped sandals, but found they were being snapped up by people to stuff into their activity sandals. Although they take a moment longer to put on than your usual sock, so not for hungover mornings, once on they mould to your feet and warm them up nicely. Fashionable but cosy too. It's possible. AB
