Neon heels now available at SoYouShoes

This season neon shades are all the rage, and ladies footwear retailer SoYouShoes has certainly picked up on this huge trend with new shoes in stock right now. Bright and summery high heels, flats and sandals are now available and can be bought online today.

SoYouShoes is one of the most popular online footwear retailers and sells a huge range of shoes in all styles, but the most recent trend of neon clothing is set to be one of the biggest this year.

Kate Jones of SoYouShoes said: “This style looks absolutely amazing and it’s definitely eye-catching, but if you’re a bit worried about incorporating it into your wardrobe it can be a good idea to start small.

“Rather than opting for a full neon outfit just yet, put on a pair of neon shoes with some black skinny jeans and an oversized T-shirt and you’ll be able to see whether you like the look. SoYouShoes currently has a wide variety of neon shoes available, in many different shades to suit all tastes.”

For a striking look, try wearing royal blue platform shoes with an all-black outfit, or add a splash of colour with some bright yellow court shoes. You can match these colours with belts, bags and other accessories to achieve the perfect look as well.

The neon trend brings back reminders of the 80s and it works perfectly with colour blocking, which has been seen all over the catwalks recently.

SoYouShoes stocks footwear in sizes three to eight and many shoe styles are available in a choice of colours, so you can pick the best one for you.

Debenhams Reveals Formula For Perfect Pair Of ‘Drop-A-Dress Size’ Shoes

Debenhams has announced its formula for how to drop a dress size in seconds. According to the retailer, if chosen carefully, a mere pair of shoes can have a dramatic slimming effect on the wearer – creating the illusion of having dropped a dress size.

The slimming effect is so apparent that, when asked to guess the dress size of the same woman in two images, people shown the image of her wearing the slimming shoes gave an average of one dress size smaller than those shown a picture of her without the magic shoes on.

Debenhams technologists created the formula when they noticed an onslaught of celebrity women, including Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham and most recently Ed Miliband’s wife Justine wearing similar nude high heels.

The formula for the perfect pair of slimming shoes is as follows: (colour + platform + height + heel width) – ankle strap = slimming, or as it is written in short-hand: (C + P + H + HW) – AS = S.

For those wanting to look slimmer in their dresses, they must first choose a nude coloured shoe which matches their skin tone. This works as an extension of the leg. Platforms should be concealed and should have at least a centimetre in depth to ensure maximum lengthening.

Heel height is critical and it is advised that women choose three-inch or higher heels. This provides added height and instantly gives a slimming effect. Heel width should also be considered. Thick heels draw the eye and break the illusion, so stiletto heels are recommended.

The final aspect of the formula is ankle straps. According to the formula, ankle straps should be avoided at all costs as they cut the leg short, making them look shorter and wider.

The formula combines a combination of tricks that give the impression of lengthened legs and tighter thighs while encouraging the torso to be pushed out, in turn flattening the stomach.

In response to the slimming formula, Natelle Baddeley, head of accessories for Debenhams, said: “It seems that performing magic tricks is no longer reserved for the likes of Dynamo and David Blaine.

“If followed to the letter, this formula gives women the chance to walk in the shoes of the famous tricksters of our time – creating a slimmer silhouette in an instant.”

Natelle Baddeley continued: “This is a diet in a shoe. Once you have found the perfect pair all you need to do is slip on your shoes to instantly transform your silhouette. It’s the perfect party cheat.”

High profilers who currently benefit from this sneaky cheat are A-listers such as Beyonce Knowles, Victoria Beckham, Alesha Dixon, Jessie J and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Debenhams Reveals Mothers Pass On The Ability To Walk In High Heels

Debenhams revealed that a woman’s ability to walk well in high heels is inherited from her mother, with balance, poise and even choice of heel height all passed on through the maternal line.

However, the debate over whether skilled high heeled walkers are born or made has still not been answered.

Debenhams Head of Accessories Design Natelle Baddeley said: “Whether it’s genetics or training in teenage years, we may never know, but it’s clear that the saying ‘like mother like daughter’ applies to walking in heels.”

The striking links between a mother and daughter’s taste in high heels were revealed during recent Debenhams customer research into consumer trends. This is something that is also reflected in Hollywood A-listers and their daughters, such as actress Kate Hudson and her mother Goldie Hawn, who have been spotted in numerous photographs wearing similar shoes.

When asked about their perfect choice of high heeled shoes, women who were unrelated produced a wide range of answers, showing enormous statistical variance in heel height, style and colour. Mothers and daughters however, differed in their answers on all three topics by only a few percentage points, with a well-heeled 92% having matching answers.

Despite having a multitude of colours, styles and heel heights to choose from, each chose women’s shoes which bore a remarkable resemblance to the other.

Daughters who loved four inch heels had mothers who also loved four inch heels.

When questioned on their favourite colour of shoes, 79% had the same answer. Mothers who loved striking reds had daughters who also loved striking reds.

Daughters who loved extremely narrow pointed heels also had mothers who loved extremely narrow pointed heels.

However, the most striking evidence suggesting a maternal link for the ability to wear high heels well emerged during crucial walk tests; a towering 87% of mothers who could stride confidently across a room in a wide range of heel heights had daughters who could do the same. Conversely, mums with limited heel height skills had appeared to have passed this deficit onto their offspring.

Debenhams Natelle Baddeley continued: “The correlation was striking. We could almost pick out who were mother and daughter in a crowd just by the similarities as they walked in high heels.

“Even though we now know that a link exists, we still don’t know what causes it.”Is it genetics? Or do young girls become accustomed to and copy their mother’s tastes in shoes simply by wearing them during “dressing up” as a child?

“Our research suggests that all daughters are destined to literally step into their mother’s shoes as they grow older.”

Debenhams research was conducted individually, so that choice in shoe style could be made free from an accompanying partner.

The small differences between a mother and daughter’s tastes were most pronounced when the daughter was below the age of twenty, but converged again as they grew older. The link between mother and daughters extends across all demographics, including celebrities.

Even Suri Cruise, daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise has shoes which bears a remarkable resemblance to those worn by her mum, which Katie has said her daughter chooses herself.

Debenhams Reports Monsters-In-Law Battle Over Wedding Spotlight

Debenhams has reported that mothers-in-law have thrown out the wedding etiquette rule book, much to the annoyance of brides.

Debenhams logo - links to home page

Thanks to increasing numbers of step-mothers-in-law now invited to nuptials, a new breed of thrusting, cougar-esque mothers-in-law have ripped up the first commandment for weddings; thou shalt not upstage the bride.

While the happy couples have cut back slightly on the big day to save cash, research for Debenhams has found spending by fashion savvy mums has soared to an average of £430. This is compared to five years ago when they paid out an average £190 – a 126% increase.*

By comparison the overall cost of getting married has risen by only 52% to £19,779**. This is a drop from an all-time high of £20,273 in 2008.

According to high street store Debenhams, the growth in sales has been driven by the increasing numbers of divorces and second marriages: when asked the reason for wanting to look extra special, 39% of mothers-of-the-bride or groom said they were competing with their ex-husband’s new wife or girlfriend.

Alain Mehada, Debenhams Personal Shopper, said: “It seems that brides are a casualty of the sartorial battle between wives past and present.

“In their determination to make an impact, mother-in-laws are regularly ignoring the main tenants of previous decades, such as do not wear white, do not wear black and do not wear anything low-cut, tight fitting, or which is likely to gain you more attention than the bride on her big day.”

Personal shoppers have dubbed it the ‘Raquel effect’ after Raquel Welch’s famous thunder-stealing behaviour at her son’s wedding.

Raquel Welch, aged 65 at the time, turned up 12 minutes late to her son Damon’s wedding, wearing a skin-tight, little black dress with cutaway frontage revealing that famous décolletage, all topped off with a huge brimmed white hat and dark glasses.

Nearly 80% of women questioned said their main goal when dressing for their child’s wedding was to look younger than their years, with 63% of women agreeing that an expensive looking outfit was imperative.

Women agreed that figure accentuating dresses were the most important part of the look with eye-catching hats or fascinators, expensive-looking high heels and immaculate hair and make-up following accordingly.

Debenhams looked at spending through its personal shopper service and found the average mother of the bride outfits bought by style conscious mothers for weddings cost £130, handbag £40, shoes £75 and hat £60 and £50 went on new cosmetics.

This adds a new level of competition to the already existing, but less brutal contest between the mother of the bride, and mother of the groom.

‘Ladette to Lady’ Social & Etiquette Expert, Liz Brewer commented: “The number one rule for mothers and stepmothers-in-law is not to do anything to draw attention away from the bride. Be as elegant as you like, but it is incredibly bad form to upstage the bride on her big day.”

Debenhams Reports Women Getting Cold Feet Over Growing Foot Print

Debenhams has revealed new research which suggests the female foot is getting bigger across the UK.

Debenhams logo - links to home page

With sales soaring, demand for size nine shoes has sparked a massive 80% increase in stocks at the department store.

But despite the growing trend, 82% of size eight and nine customers say they are ashamed of their shoe size, ironically most blokes in the UK are a size nine.

Merchandisers at the department store thought something was afoot when it was revealed that 67% of all size nines sold, are bought online as opposed to in store.

Carie Barkhuizen, Debenhams Spokesperson, said: “Buying shoes online can be a tricky feat which is why we decided to ask women why they were shopping behind closed doors. We were surprised to learn a case of cold feet was behind it all.

“It’s even more surprising when you consider the host of celebrity women like Michelle Obama and Nicole Kidman proudly stepping out on their larger paws.”

When asked to identify what part of shopping for shoes in store they found particularly uncomfortable, 64% said it was asking the shop assistant for their size and 36% said they hated taking their shoes off in public.

The survey also revealed that 47% of women had lied to their partners and friends about their shoe size.

To help combat this embarrassment, Debenhams has instructed stores to put more size eight and nine stock out on the shop floor for women to help themselves to.

Women needn’t feel alone however, the average female shoe size has increased by one and a half sizes over the last 10 years; from four and a half in 1990 to a size six in 2011, and larger sizes are increasingly in demand.

The change is attributed to women’s feet becoming broader rather than longer which experts believe may be due to an increase in average body weight as women grow taller.

Demand for size nines was highest in Dublin, followed by London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle.

Carie Barkhuizen continued: “If the current trend continues, then we will start stocking women’s shoes in size ten and eleven too.

“Shoes with high heels, such as stilettos in larger sizes, have to be made much stronger with sturdier load bearing points, able to cope with greater levels of stress and wear.
