The days are getting longer and the temperatures are creeping back up; sandal weather is so close we can almost taste it. And if, like us, your summer wardrobe prep is now well underway, we’d suggest taking note of Topshop‘s bestseller of the season – simple yet chic strappy shoes that have become one of most popular pairs of 2019.
The mid-height leather heels are so versatile, in fact, that they’ve already sold out multiple times despite arriving on the website before the sun officially started shining. But now they’re back in stock, ready to be snapped up as summer begins to properly rear its head – and an even wider range of colours.
Initially you could only get the Strippy style in black or coral, but now there’s a whole selection to snap up including white, lime and even a snake print.
‘We’re seeing a shift back to a slimmer profile for footwear for the Spring/Summer season, with a focus on “barely there” sandals,’ Anthony Cuthbertson, Global Design Director at Topshop, told you.co.uk to explain the surge in Strippy sales.
‘The 90s inspired shape and the, very wearable, mid-heel height of our Strippy style has caught the attention of our customer – in fact it’s been so popular that it sold out within days.’
Footwear isn’t the only area where Topshop is coming up trumps for S/S 19 – their new Editor jeans are flying off the shelves thanks to their flattering fit and low price tag. The denim, which comes in a choice of three shades, has won praise across the industry, and has been hailed as the ‘new Joni’ – a reference to the store’s previous top-selling skinny jean line.
Unsurprisingly, the collection is almost completely out of stock online, but we’re heading into our local store with high hopes…
