When it comes to minimalist's whose aesthetic we admire, it's hard to go past Marianne of the Smyth Sisters. The influencer regularly posts enviable pared-back outfits that feature expert tailoring and neutral colour tones. She also has a special talent for finding expensive-looking staples on the high street, which makes her one to watch when you're in the market for an affordable gem.
Recently, she's been sporting a pair of padded leather sandals which easily look as if they could pass as designer but just so happen to be from & Other Stories. The flat sandals feature an on-trend slingback silhouette, Velcro closure and padded straps making for a comfortable summer shoe that can be perfectly paired against a myriad of outfits, including silky dresses, linen trousers and shorts.
