So Long, High Heels—These Sought-After Shoes Channel Parisian Chic

After a quick poll in the office, one thing is immediately clear: Team Who What Wear UK are no longer into platform heels. Controversial, I know, and although I still love the impact of a killer heel, I also want to wear shoes that feel as good as they look, and teetering heels and skinny stilettos just aren't cutting it anymore.

Given my role as shopping editor, I spend a lot of time looking through sites and trying on exciting new buys, so one of my hobbies has become finding comfortable shoes that look every bit as good as designer ones, and I think my latest Reformation find is about to be huge

Sure, Reformation is an expert in beautiful dresses and summer-ready linen, but looking through its extensive accessories section is a gold mine of could-be designer pieces that are worth every penny of their cost per wear. Understated minimalist? You'll love the barely-there sandals and supersized totes. Statement-making maximalist? There are plenty of sculptural heels and playful party bags that speak your language.

But no matter your style, if you're struggling with what to wear in this temperamental summer weather, the latest Mallori heels are the perfect solution. These are shoes you can continue to wear this summer as well as into autumn and winter.

A simple, closed-toe pump with a hint of mary janes detailing, this easy-to-wear style is every bit the French-girl staple. Scour the streets of Paris and you won't spot anyone in six-inch heels—the mid-heel is reigning supreme, and with just the right balance between trend-led colourways and timeless appeal, the Mallori is ticking all the right boxes to be a best seller in the making (just remember, you heard it here first).

Take notes from Reformation's own styling and wear them with a pretty blouse and jeans or a mini dress for an outfit straight from the Parisian street-style lookbook. Extra points if you manage to incorporate a Breton knit.

So, if you're looking for a pair of shoes worth investing in now to wear all year round, keep scrolling to shop the designer-looking Reformation shoes that I predict are about to have a very good season. Your only decision is which colour to go for. 


And for those not sold on Barbie pink, a more subtle nod to the trend. 


Slingback kitten heels are still the look du jour. 

Looking for a pair of summer sandals that go with everything? You just found them.

The beginning of the very chic return of wedges. 

Tell me you didn't think these were designer. 

 T-bar sandals + linen trousers = a match made in heaven. 

 The suede finish is just so luxe. 

This unexpected shade of cornflower blue is so pretty.
