Dear Stylemma, I love all things retro, so I’m thrilled to see the Seventies are back in fashion. I recently bought a pair of wide-legged, high-waisted trousers but I’m unsure what shoes to wear with them. I’d prefer something with a heel and have a limited budget of €150. What do you recommend?

When it comes to wide-legged trousers, the only acceptable footwear option is a chunky platform heel. Topshop has a fantastic selection; the Cindy suede peep-toe platform sandal, €114, comes in a deep red and is very Diana Ross. If you want something a little more casual, then French Connection’s Jakoba platform mule espadrille, €125, is a great option. At €100, Office’s Twiddle Your Thumbs leather platform in tan won’t break the bank, and the cute loafer detail makes them super smart.
