Top Picks From a Leading Melbourne Stylist

On Thursday 17 October, Peter Sheppard's Melbourne store hosted Styled for Spring. On hand offering styling advice was Sally Mackinnon of Styled by Sally, one of the most experienced Stylists in Melbourne. Her natural eye for style, knowledge of body shapes, trends and the local retail market allow her to meet the needs of her clients regardless of their lifestyle and budget.

Sally has selected five styles from Peter Sheppard's current collection, which she predicts will be the most coveted shoes to be wearing this summer. 

PARKEL by Paul Green

Any brand who crafts shoes in size 42 is a winner in Sally's eyes. A size 42 herself, Sally owns and loves several Paul Green styles for their versatility and comfort. PARKEL is crafted in a luxuriously soft 'antelope' or black suede, yet the shoe still screams summer. The gold accents pair nicely with denim, whites and linens... In other words, everything you'll be wearing in warm weather! 

KEARY by Sorelle Bensoni

With it's toe shape, KEARY is 'Chanel-esque'. While it's also available in biscuit (on sale!) and black, Sally says she simply cannot go past a white shoe. White shoes will pair with almost anything in your wardrobe and will automatically lift an outfit. A feminine block heel at just the right height offers all-day comfort and the weave is the cherry on top when it comes to this gorgeous heel. 

SAMUEL by Hugo Sheppard 

According to Sally, all women should have a suede pop of colour in their shoe cupboard and SAMUEL could be that shoe! This bright and funky flat will match with almost anything in your wardrobe though Sally suggests you opt for neutrals, denims and whites. Samuel is also available in burnt orange and black.

TALIN by Toni Pons

For a shoe that never dates, Sally recommends TALIN. Whether it's a shoe you throw on with a beach dress or pair with jeans for dinner in the evening, Talin is an incredibly versatile shoe. Featuring an ever-so-slight wedge heel, it's a timeless style you'll never believe you lived without it. Talin is available in black, khaki or yellow.

ELINE by Peter Kaiser 

The end of the year not only signifies Christmas approaching. It also means the event calendar goes into overdrive! For a statement heel perfect for work functions and dinner parties, Sally has picked ELINE. Available in both red, rose and black (on sale!) Eline is smart and sophisticated. Although a stiletto, the heel height promises you comfort throughout whichever event you choose to wear Eline to.
