Have you discovered the daily pleasure of dressing with a seasonal wardrobe capsule collection? With an overarching ethos of choosing quality over quantity, it begins with holding onto and investing in key staples you know you’ll return to, time and time again.
An intentionally curated and versatile collection of pieces that all work well together makes everyday outfit selections simple and enjoyable – and here at Mikko, that’s something we can absolutely get behind!
As part of a balanced summer capsule, footwear is the grounding piece of every look; we’ve rounded up the four must-haves that will see you through the season in style – for this year and beyond.
1. The Loafer
While the loafer is currently enjoying quite the street-style resurgence, it has forever been a favourite in our eyes thanks to its ability to instantly give any outfit that stylish Parisian edge. Whether opting for a cool, casual option or a dressier style, the loafer remains timeless, elegant, comfortable, and above all, works well with just about every garment in one’s wardrobe!
2. The Wedge Heel
A versatile wedge is a veritable summer staple. Pretty yet practical, it’s the perfect ‘event’ shoe that can be worn with almost anything from jeans to dresses and floaty summery skirts, faring particularly well on uneven surfaces. For when you need a little lift without compromising on stability, the wedge always wins.
3. The Sneaker
Whether it features a platform wedge, breathable perforations, luxe linings or retro style features, there is a sneaker to suit every taste and occasion. Available in so many forms, a sneaker is an absolute wardrobe staple – the joy is in choosing which one suits your personal look the best!
4. The Slide
The quintessential summer shoe, the slide is relaxed, comfortable and easy-to-wear style – a must-have for every woman. Available in a range of playful colours, textures and patterns, a slide can bring both a casual air and a statement to any look.
When it comes to colour, it’s about choosing timeless tones that both age well, and work with as many looks as possible. Luckily, our seasonal trend palette features mindful classics that never date – for SS22 it’s about those not-quite-whites, shades of green, glacial skies and golden sands.
At the end of the day, the most important consideration is your personal aesthetic, lifestyle and foot-shape – and whether you have any orthotic needs (which we can cater too, of course!)
By choosing quality, artisan-made options from Mikko, you know above all else, they’ll also stand the test of time.
