Two-inch heels: not a term that usually equates with glamour and high fashion. Alas, this is the most radical change in recent fashion history. Not only are medium heels the epitome of chic, they are also changing our perspective on the term ‘sexy’

Ever notice how french women look impeccably chic even if they’re just wearing a simple white shirt and skinnies? What’s the magic secret to this all round enviable level of chic? The shoes. And not just any shoes. The classic black pointed slingback pump. The sleek staple will undeniably take any outfit (yes even the most lazy, last minute look you throw together at the crack of dawn) and magically transform it into something altogether sophisticated. Most working women don’t know where they’d be without the timeless day to night staple so if you’re looking to elevate your work outfit or simply make your jeans and knit look that little more pulled-together, then opt for some style inspo here.
