silver-glitter-shoes.pngIf you love glitter on shoes as much as we do, this time of year is usually a little sad: the putting-away of sparkly shoes is as much a sign of the end of party season as is chucking out the Christmas tree, and ushers in a long and boring waiting period, where we wear out our winter shoes and wait for spring before trying anything more adventurous on our feet.

Not this year, however! Glitter is going to be very much a key trend for spring/summer 2012. if you don't believe us check out Kurt Geiger's forthcoming range or indeed Dune's spring/summer 2012 shoes: both collections are absolutely showered with glitter, and look much more like winter ranges to the untrained eye: the differences will be lighter shades, more sparing coverage and a preoccupation with neon.

These heels by Carvela, however, are just a gorgeous classic shape, covered in silvery glitter that really sparkles, making them look totally light and bright. You can buy them now for £120 at Selfridges, and match them up with all the beautiful and delicate vintage-style clothing out there at the moment, from 1920s fashion plate to 1930s siren. We can't wait for more glamorous styles to emerge for S/S 2012!
