Dorothy Perkins shoes are always top of our wish list thanks to their directional designs and purse-friendly prices. This season, the DP shoe shelves are chock-full of could-be-designer styles that we were convinced had come straight off the catwalk.
From Chanel-inspired tweed ballerina pumps to Valentino’s iconic studded Rockstuds to YSL’s knee-high gladiators, Dorothy Perkins is hot on the heels of all our fave designer shoe trends, making for one long summer shoe-drobe shopping list.
We’ve whittled down the best designer shoe tributes for every occasion, come rain or shine:
1. Tweed Ballet Flats: With more than a hint of signature Chanel about them, these elegantly classic pumps will see you through from day to night in comfort and style. They come in pink and blue too, so you really are spoilt for choice.
2. Knee-High Gladiators: With summer just around the corner and everyone from Cara to Kendall rocking them, knee-high gladiators are at the top of every fashionista’s shopping list and, come pay day, we’re sure this dead-ringer for YSL’s will be snapped up pretty quick.
3. Ankle-strap Courts: At £45, these court heels are the priciest of our edit (still a bargain we’re sure you’ll agree), but we reckon the nude and snakeskin combo is a dead-cert crowd-pleaser. The medium-sized heel means your tootsies won’t have to suffer either!
4. Heart Detailing: We fell head over heels the first time we saw Vivienne Westwood’s heart detailed heels, and the fact that Dorothy Perkins have given us a flat version makes us even happier. We’d sport these beauties anywhere from a first-date to a shopping trip with the gals.
All that’s left to say is, Dorothy Perkins, we love you!
