PostA week in the style of : Bel Jacobs

Bel Jacobs Freelance fashion and arts journalist Bel Jacobs shares the best of high end and high street on her blog As a previous London Style Editor, when it comes to fashion she’s seen it, worn it, loved it. Plus she’s a serious flats aficionado. So who better to wear us through her week in some of Clarks hottest summer looks…

BUY - Taylor Palm

TUESDAY. Tuesdays are about planning: going through emails, arranging the diary (takes longer than you’d think) and planning stories for the week. I hot desk it so I tend to dress down, as in this easy tartan shirt dress by Urban Outfitters’ own brand, Cooperative. But down shouldn’t mean dowdy and there’s no easier way to sharpen a casual outfit than with some choice metallic accessories. Clarks Taylor Palm is a classic brogue, cleverly turned into a closed toe T-bar sandal with a delicate pointy toe and sweet buckle fastening. It comes in black and in a sophisticated two-tone but, in silver, it reminds me of Stella McCartney’s metallic faux-leather loafers, currently for sale at, ooh, 20 times the price. They’re easily dressed up or down and the open sides make them perfect for warmer weather. Expect to see me out and about in these a lot. Photo: Phillip Waterman,
