Sarenza A/W Collection Review: Pure British Style

Hi guys,

Sarenza have just launched their brand new A/W collection on site. To celebrate that, they are launching a review contest to pick the Best of British style from their new ranges, and they asked me to take part. As a Sarenza brand ambassador (and dedicated fan of the brand) how could I say no?!

I have an imaginary £800 to spend on the new season shoes of my dreams. Can you imagine how exciting that would be?! But instead of just showing you shoes, I thought I would show you how to turn incredible statement shoes into outfits:

First up are these House of Harlow ankle boots (£240). How gorgeous are these?! They're 100% leather, and I love the slightly bondage-style overlays. I would team these with my leather jacket, skinny black jeans, a cute satchel (I have the Friis & Co one from Sarenza, and it's fab!) and a vibrant,oversized chunky knit scarf.

Next up are these Mellow Yellow ankle boots (£160). I love these boots: they're simple and delicate, but they'd go with anything. These would be perfect for teaming with a dress and a fitted fur coat for a work to evening occasion.


Then I would indulge with these crazy Jeffrey Campbell Lita heels (£103.32) These shoes deserve to be taken to a party, so I would wear it with a sequinned dress and tan vintage-style accessories.


Finally, I would put on my sensible hat and get these Jonak moccasin boots (£63.75) They look so comfortable, and would be great for long Autumnal walks. Team with jeans and knits for a cozy take on the heritage trend.

Total fictional spend: £567.07. Which leaves me plenty of money to buy comfy pumps in every colour: perfect for when all those beautiful heels leave my feet aching!

I love being British: I think we Brits have a very distinct sense of style, both with our shoes and our dress. I just can't imagine a French woman hitting her local disco in those glittery Jeffery Campbell boots with quite the same gusto I would! I know i'm generalising, but I think we just throw things together and experiment a little bit more.

NB: For ease (and because this really isn't about the clothes!) all the outfits are from Topshop.
Love, Tor xx
