Shoes for Royal Ascot

Specialising in bridal shoes, Rachel Simpson didn’t really have Royal Ascot in mind when she designed her collection. But you have to admit; her coloured creations would set off your Ascot hat and dress quite nicely.

The classic Mary Jane is always a good bet at the races – the style is feminine but the heel is not too high that your feet are going to be in serious pain at the end of the day.
Here are a few Mary-Janes:

 Hettie is a classic Mary Jane but with a bit of sparkle. In navy suede with silver panels which are finished with handmade trims in diamante and pearl.  Heel height 8cm Price £160

For those who want more stability whilst trying to walk on grass, then ‘Dolly’ the low heeled (6cm) Mary Jane will be the answer. The floral suede finish fabric is an ideal print for the summer. Price £145.

The 1950’s retro full skirts are in all vogue this season and they are the perfect ladylike style for Royal Ascot, plus they look great with large hats.  Complete the look with the sexy high heeled (9.5cm) ‘Marilyn’ a 1950’s inspired suede court shoe with asymmetric satin bows. Price £160 Colours come in ‘Some like it hot’ red or 'Gentlemen prefer blondes' mink.

Lace is another on trend this season so go for ‘Lilly’ a peep toe in black lace set on a metallic gold mesh and finished with oversized satin bows. Great to complement the monochrome look. Heel 8cm Price £150

Platforms always make the higher heels easier to walk in, so here’s a few:
You’ll be a shining star in ‘Stella’ – a peep toe with ruched satin detail and a triple jewel trim. The hidden platform makes the 8.5cm heels heaven to walk in. Comes in elegant slate grey and sunny sage green. Price £175
Another teasing peep toe is ‘Tallulah’ with her oversized ruched satin trim. Again the hidden platform makes the 8.5cm heel lower than it is. Comes in subtle mink or passionate deep purple. Price £170

To make sure your shoes don’t slip off whilst galloping across the grass to collect your winnings go for straps:

 Rosalyn a peep toe with a diamante inset buckle will keep you grounded in floral suede finish fabric. Heel 8.5cm Price £165

Tilly is a ballroom dance inspired peep toe with a supportive t-bar. Comes in silver satin with metallic silver leather detail or in coral. Heel 6cm Price £145.

Lola ‘ in shameless scarlet suede is a round toe style with a teardrop cut out detail all tied up with a beautiful scarlet organza ribbon. 8cm heels Price £150

Oh and they would all make great bridal shoes in ivory shades.
