Fashion has been flirting with cork uppers for a few seasons now, but it looks like that spring/summer 2012 might be the season that this style finally sticks. There's more cork on display than ever this time, thanks to the current obsession with substantial wedges, and this style by Studio Pollini epitomizes the look. It channels the trend for nudes and neutrals, and the streamlined, seamless look coming in on a wave of sports luxe.

This style is available through Sarenza at £181.40 (reduced from £251.90) but you'll be seeing a lot more where this came from in the high street shops. It goes without saying that cork is a fantastically summery style, but it's also highly wardrobe-friendly as well; its neutral colour tones make it the perfect accessory for whenever the sun feels like coming out to play!

Wear this style with a lengthy maxi-dress to lift you (and your clothes!) off the ground in style.
