wedge-sandals.pngWe've featured loads of gorgeous bright, printed and generally eye-catching shoes for spring/summer 2012 this week, but the majority have been over the £100 mark. If you're wanting to get the look for a little less than that, there's no need to worry: the high street is lighting up like a beacon at the moment and there are plenty of ultra-affordable patterns and brights to be had. Here are just a few of our favourites.

Pictured above, this 'Lois' Ikat print wedge is available from Boohoo and is priced at only £25. It's a great basis for all the coming season's strong colours and Aztec prints, and the straps are mounted on a sturdy, stylishly-cut cork wedge that should see you through the summer. It's got all the season's key pastel tones, so will be an easy match for any on-trend pieces you might pick up along the way: I'd love to slip into these in a bikini and sarong on the beach...


Another way to get those lovely bold, bright colours on your feet this summer without splashing out too much is to invest in some simple plimsoles, and Topshop have a good choice of low-cut ones in different shades. We love this bright lemon yellow pair, which are available to buy here for just £18.

head_over_heels.pngAnother great buy if you want to hit those high notes of colour and abstract pattern is this cute pair of peep-toe slip-on pumps from Dune's Head over Heels range. With a rounded demi heel and a cut-out front section to show off your favourite grape or banana yellow nail polish, they're a great way to make a statement this summer. Pick them up at John Lewis for just £19
