Trend Report: Seville

Is there anything more classic than a black flat? Along with a trench coat, a little black dress and tube of red lipstick, it should be a building block of a woman’s wardrobe. Its image alone conjures up thoughts of Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel and more recently, Carla Bruni, three women who could make a space suit look like couture. You really can’t ask for more in a shoe – it’s comfortable, it’s wearable and it looks so effortlessly stylish. The Seville in black even gives you a little extra, with its slight kitten heel, polished chrome buckle and that shimmer of black patent leather across the toe. And unlike those other shoe basics of your closet (ahem, strappy evening sandals or pointed pumps that pinch!) you can rest assured that the black flat can take you from day to night while keeping you comfortable. And you can also rest assured that they will never go out of style. Come again? Super comfortable and forever stylish? You can bet that I’ll be finding a million ways to wear these when the weather turns cooler, and that shouldn’t be too hard at all: check out the different outfits below!
