Shoe Spotlight: The Raffia Trend

cherrichella Stack Heel

The days and nights are getting cooler, and we’re shifting to layered looks - chunky knits, we see you! It’s during this time, we conveniently dream about our past travels. You know the ones we’re talking about, where gentle palm trees line the beaches, coconuts are aplenty and for some odd reason, our skin just glows so much more than when we’re back home.

While your favourite getaways might feel like a lifetime ago, you can still add a touch of paradise to your current shoe rotation with the raffia trend. Raffia accessories are as strong and stylish as ever in fashion. In shoes, this versatile trend features the look of woven details, inspired by rattan, and transcends far beyond the beach for a year-long nod to summer. Here’s how to work the raffia trend into your day-to-day shoe rotation.

Work or Play?

From meetings with the boss to out-of-office mode, our ‘Stack’ heel works hard as a multitasking shoe. The fact that they’re absolutely cute was no mistake. With its square-toe sling back design and natural raffia block heel, these work shoes are ready to get down to business, while reminding us of the better days to come a.k.a. holidays. Featuring a luscious padded insole, these block heels were designed to be worn all day for any busy schedule. Wear our ‘Stack’ shoes in black with its natural rattan heel with a monochrome power suit, a black pleated skirt or classic denim jeans for Fridays at the office.
