1920s-style T-bar shoes

I do love a t-bar. Subtly reminiscent of everyone's school days, but also incredibly sophisticated when worked into a vintage glamour look, they add heaps of interest to shoes that are otherwise unremarkable. This fun party heel by Odeon has plenty more going for it, however, as it's a striking combination of dark plum colour uppers and contrasting white piping, with a generous platform and slender heel for heaps of height.

Available now from Very.co.uk, this 'Simpson' shoe is also an extraordinarily wallet-pleasing £15,  and available in a range of other colours and patterns if this one doesn't suit you. It would be an ideal part of a 1920s-inspired Great Gatsby look, but would be equally at home as part of a quirky party outfit plucked from any era.
