How to Style Statement Heels

Ella Gregory Style Cocos Tea Party

If you’ve been reading Coco’s Tea Party for a while you will have no doubt observed two things about my style. Firstly, I practically live in J Brand ‘Maria’ jeans. And, secondly, I have an unhealthy obsession with leopard print. My wardrobe is full of leopard, and I don’t think there will ever come a time when I say enough is enough. It’s just so damn sassy. Plus, it goes with just about everything!

Leopard print shoes are my absolute weakness, so it should come as no surprise to hear that I’ve fallen in love with the Aquazzura ‘Very Deena’ heels. They’re part of the limited-edition Aquazzura X Farfetch collection, and are the most comfortable heels I’ve ever worn. Seriously, don’t let the impressive heel height fool you – these babies are so kind to the feet!

I was lucky enough to interview Aquazzura’s Edgardo Osorio last year, and he made it very clear that comfort comes first when he’s designing a new collection. And clearly he wasn’t lying. “I want women to be able to walk in my shoes all day and feel great,” he said. “Instead of changing several times a day because they can’t walk in their shoes.”

“The perfect pair of heels should be comfortable and sexy at the same time.” – Edgardo Osorio

Monsoon Lacey Victoriana Blouse

I’m excited to pair these statement heels with hush’s culotte jumpsuit and my metallic midi skirt. But so far I’ve been keeping the styling low-key, teaming the Aquazzura pumps with skinny jeans and Monsoon’s lacey Victoriana blouse. The latter has become a bit of a spring 2017 must-have, and not a day goes by when I don’t spot it on Instagram. It’s currently available in black, white and blush, and honestly it receives so many compliments every time I wear it. Snap one up while you can…
