Nautical and metallics. Two trends which keep coming into the fold time and time again... but usually separately. Famous shoe designer Pierre Hardy has decided to go against the grain with this one and combine the two trends to create these gold rope gladiator heels.

We imagine they'd look right at home on the bronzed feet of a superyacht-lounging glamazon, but they could also look really rather pretty on the rest of us this summer too. Wear with crisp beige dress shorts and a loose, white blouse to give off a relaxed yet smart summer vibe. They're £590 from Start Boutique.
