Chunky metallic sandals
Chunky metallic sandals – as seen stomping over the catwalks at Chanel – are the sandals to be seen in. Birkenstock sandals and Birkenstock lookalikes are still beloved for SS16 and the flat-form is also having a moment. Gold and silver metallics with thick white soles give an out-of-space feel to footwear.

No longer reserved for the girls of My Super Sweet Sixteen, tiaras are apparently now an acceptable adult accessory. Tiaras are part of the Saint Laurent and Miu Miu SS16 Collections.
A celebration or formal occasion could be a good opportunity to bedazzle in a tiara. Or wear yours low as a headband over messy, tousled hair for a grungy look as done nicely by Agyness Deyn for Saint Laurent.
