Unleash your inner Rita Hayworth with Laurence Dacade’s Helissa shoes in a shade of scarlet that is red hot! Just like the starlet, these criss-cross sandals have a girlish glamour but the height of the chunky platform gives them plenty of attitude. If you’re lucky enough to be on a tropical holiday, wear them with a printed tent dress, but if you’re stuck in a city – take them disco dancing with a pair of glittery lurex socks. The lustrous satin is certain to glint on the dance floor but your feet won’t hurt one bit – so you can go all night long.
