Inspired by the Spanish flag and spirit, Dolce & Gabbana taps into the flamenco colours with flair. The polka-dots form a backdrop for meticulously embroidered lemons and roses on the cork wedge. The cutesy dots lend themselves to some Great Gatsby styled dresses that currently rule the shelves. Even a mini black should do the trick.

These stilettos from Gucci are both
edgy and demure. We love the crystal covered heel as well as the peach suede, dominating the design. Don’t miss the metallic Gucci logo under the arch, to show off a bit when you are prettily perched on a barstool! Team with a white empire waist dress to up the glamour ante. `70,000, approximately

Screaming Jimmy Choo, the
colour and design of the Kascade
sandals are eye-catching. Crafted from leather and accented with sharp angles, it is offset by the thin T-strap encrusted with Swarovski crystals all the way to the back and around the ankles too. We love the innovative wedge heel, made from one piece, but cut to create an illusion. Pair with a cropped jump suit. `80,000 at the store in UB City. Details: 41738404
