If you're still wearing court shoes with platform soles, consign them to the back of your wardrobe now! Even Victoria Beckham has ditched the platform pumps in favour of flats - hell has indeed frozen over and she is now wearing English style brogues.

I love cold, winter weather but these never ending grey skies are getting me down. Yellow is one of those cheery colours that just makes everything a bit better and brighter. Associated with optimism, happiness and sunshine, it's a great pop colour to wear right now.

I am obsessed with Saucony Originals sneakers right now, particularly the Shadow Originals designs. I was looking for the perfect grey suede shoe and found that they do so many of them, I am still deciding which ones to get.

As we move further into the 21st century, unisex fashion has cemented itself as a trend that's here to stay. Unisex clothing continues to gain market share, however certain big retail brands are still reluctant to move into the gender bender industry.

Trainers, Running my Mind

The women's mass-market selection is limited. Yes, it sounds almost too tempting a cause for the feminist crusaders out there, but the women's selection is mainly pink and purple. Does Nike not think women are after black patent, woven-toed or basketball-inspired, swoosh-emblazoned trainers? Apparently not.

From festival goers in second-hand Army Surplus Store and charity shop overshirts to high end runway styles in fine fabrics, camo print is everywhere right now and will be going right through into next season.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of the most iconic trainer styles - the Nike Air Max. As part of their celebrations to mark the occasion, Nike commissioned various London artists to interpret some classic Air Max styles and the results now form part of a 'Nike Air Max Reinvent' exhibition...

Weekend Shopping: Kicks and Kiddy Shoes

Sarah McGiven | Posted 27.03.2013 | UK Style

I love shoes. Shoes don't care how much Quality Street you ate over Christmas, the straps won't strain after a big dinner and they are so much easier than clothes to shop for as the sizes tend to be pretty standard across brands, with far less variation than you find in clothing.

Weekend Shopping: We Want Gold

Sarah McGiven

Seems there's a gold rush going on at the moment everywhere (even the Team GB trophy cabinet) with glistening, golden shades shining from shop rails, beauty displays and shoe stores. When it comes to metallics I'm usually a silver or bronze girl although I do love a rose gold, especially for eyeshadows and jewellery.

Weekend Shopping: Standout Silver

I love busting out a silver shimmer- it's my go-to, year-round shade for adding sparkle to an outfit and I'm never without my Elsa Peretti for Tiffany open heart hoop style earrings, one of many silver chains and my beloved Frank Gehry torque ring but it's not just for jewellery. My disco ball style silver nails have been drawing lots of unsolicited compliments of late and I would lend someone my kitten for a pair of the silver Isabel Marant wedge heel trainers, pictured below.

Weekend Shopping: Fourth of July American Flag Waving Fashion

I adore America. I also love a bit of theme dressing. As a kid I spent a lot of Independence Days in the States and, even though with the exception of having a few American relatives, I don't really have any reason to celebrate 4th July, for me it's just a great excuse to dress up, eat some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and drink even more Diet Coke and Starbucks than usual.

Nike Control to Major Tom: Artist Sachs' Space Inspired Range

Nike really are smashing it at the moment. Never mind the Air Wovens, Flyknits or the mad Yeezy II hype, for me it's all about the understated, super tactile designs of NIKECraft, the new collaboration with bricolage sculpture artist Tom Sachs.

Colour Me Sporty: New Liberty Print Nike Collection is Ready to Spring

Whilst I often like Nikes I see in stores, they never really grabbed me until the Nike X Liberty collaborations, fusing sports technology with heritage print fabrics from London's iconic department store. I'm sold.

Weekend Shopping: New Shoes!

I've had a bad run of it recently with shoes. First my gorgeous new heels inexplicably went from a wonderful, glove-like fit to cutting off the circulation in my toes, then the triple height crepe soles of my beloved vintage pony hair creepers split in two.

Sustainable and Ethical: Trainers that Don't Cost the Earth

When I think of monolithic sportswear brands and their highly questionable supply chains, I just have to resign myself that the Gazelle and the Chuck T are both one of those "It was great while it lasted, and even though you're still hot, it just isn't working for me anymore," relationships.

Ever since I used to wear Grolsch tops on my Dr. Marten school shoes, I've loved a shoe accessory. So, coupled with a trainer obsession, Shoeture was bound to be a smash hit fashion fit for me.

Whether one is dining in the restaurant car of the Wagon-Lit carriages of the Orient Express, or simply going round for a casual, round the kitchen table supper with friends, one should make an effort and not carelessly abandon one's sense of occasion.
