For something I can afford: the Plimsoles! They are crossing seasons with me! they will be a little tricky to pull off but with the right stockings/socks I think they will make subtle impact; like the perfect mascara (discreet but have quite an impact). They are not the most fashionable key piece but thrown under skinny-jeans with a peak of a neon sock in the same colour as the shirt/top should make DeGorge view (ps. the shirt should not be neon!!).
Note: A HUGE no-no on shoes this season : UGGS, uuurghs! They look wrong, they look out of place anywhere other than the artics and they do not work with anything. I have only ever people with "wheel-alignment" problems (people with strange walking/stepping patterns) wearing them and they are a dead-giveaway of this flaw; a-v-o-i-d!
