Because braided hair isn’t the only summer statement you need in your look, Italian favourite Marco De Vincenzo takes the plait all the way down to your feet. Luscious velvet and a classic sandal shape gets a fun makeover with this new iconic pair of 4.5-inched heels that is overtaking all of the biggest e-tailers – available in all colourways you can imagine. Our favourite is the midnight navy plush velvet pair that we imagine as the next favourite party shoe. Pair them with a black sequined mini dress and an oversized silver earring for a contemporary take on the classic Studio 54 look.

Shop the Marco De Vincenzo braided sandals from Farfetch at £730.
