black_zara_sandals.pngWe've decided to head back to Zara for another bit of occasionwear shopping, after falling head-over-heels in love with these sparkly sandals last week. We had hoped to find more affordable glamour where that came from, and we weren't disappointed...

Our editor's top pick for this weekend is this black studded slingback from the Woman collection. While pastels, neutrals and neons are the bi hitters this summer, don't be put off if you want to wear black instead, as the shade is as safe a bet as ever when it comes to occasion and evening wear. These sandals are a modern take on a classic that are both trendy and timeless.

The high placement of the sling-back strap is what brings these shoes in line with current trends, along with their lengthy, pointed toe section. They also benefit from having dark-toned shiny studs embroidered at the front, which gives a classy and understated shimmer as you walk.

Like them as much as we do? They're £49 here from Zara.
