If chunky is what you’re after, you won’t find much better than the Daniel Piccadilly Circus White Leather Platform Trainers. The sky’s the limit with these statement flatforms – quite literally!
It wouldn’t be a summer trends post without a mention of sandals. Sandals are an obvious choice on hotter days – but which style is reigning supreme this year?
