Clean chic heels from Högl

Minimalism with maximum effect

For shortstoriesandskirts, clean chic is the simplest and most feminine way to present design and quality.
 
The new year is in full swing, bringing with it a fresh fashion chapter for us all. Like a blank page just waiting to be filled with beautiful sartorial tales. A new adventure can begin!

And after all the glitz and glamour of the festive period, I’m craving a little calm and tranquility. A sort of fashion detox, where I trade sequins for simplicity. Because for me, versatility and a willingness to adapt is a key part of fashion. The freedom to chop and change, to explore and express ourselves and allow brands like Högl to transport us to new places… And in keeping with Högl’s latest shoe collection, which serves us an abundance of styles, it’s time for me to pick my next fashion destination.

To satisfy my cravings for calm and simplicity, nobody does minimalistic chic better than the Scandinavians. The region is renowned for its effortlessly modern and comfortable vibes, muted tones paired with feminine cuts, and calming patterns for that ultimate clean look. Just what the doctor ordered after an overdose of sparkle last holiday season.

That’s why I was immediately drawn to several pairs of Högl shoes. I first spotted a nude shoe with an ankle strap and striking block heel and then beside it, a more classic and timeless black sling-back with a leg-lengthening almond-shaped toe. Both are perfectly classic and have everything a clean chic look needs! Minimalism, but with maximum effect, and a clear sense of quality and design throughout. I’m sure even the Scandinavians would approve!

These heels are true fashion allrounders. The soft lamb leather shines in all-black and the high-cut heel strap adds a touch of sex appeal.
Now that I’d found the perfect shoes to create my “detoxed” look, I turned to my next question: what should I team them with? Personally, I’d say anything where the elaborate is sidelined in favour of simple cuts made out of premium fabrics for a clean-yet-flattering silhouette. I chose a flowing cream dress with an A-line skirt and high neck for my new Högl black sling-backs – a muted monochrome look that is just as chic as it is comfortable and sophisticated.

For my second look, I drew inspiration from Högl’s nude Mary Jane heels. Their cool retro look and 60s feel led me to pick out a black baby-doll dress, bringing out the vintage vibe in a simple and chic way. The lovely leather detailing around the décolletage of the dress perfectly matches the fabric and feel of the shoes.

Depending on the styling, the FESTIVA heels can have girlish charm or a more seductive appeal.

Combined with this black baby-doll dress, the Högl Mary Jane heels give off an elegant retro charm that is also sensual and seductive.
Styling tip: make sure the ankle strap can be seen, as this is an easy way to lengthen the legs!

Long story short, why not join me and indulge in a clean chic detox, investing in some fabulous key pieces like these refined Högl classics? You’ll be able to create a huge variety of looks that will take you a stylishly long way!
