Hi, this Black Friday I bough really nice high heels (LK Bennett, have been dreaming of them more than a year, but it was way too £££). Then last week when some discounts were available my size was sold out in all colours but black patent leather. Impulse buy and now thinking if I should keep them or it's out of fashion already. Given the price I can only justify them if they would last in my office environment for good several years

So - is patent leather still in or it's yesterday?

They never went out - only men should wear plain black leather shoes - for women black leather must be patent or suede etc. (so says my DM and I tend to agree!) grin

Bought black patent boots from Whistles this year - love the way they look with matt black clothing.

Never heard that! (Thinks about own plain black leather knee-highs, ankle boots, etc.)

However, patent is still a good look.

Definitely a classic, in a good way.

Ladies, thanks a lot!
I was thinking that a few years back black patent heels used to be pretty much a uniform in my office and I rarely seem them now... given that I'm not into fashion anymore blush I'm scared to look completely out of time so all your lovely reassurance is much appreciated

I think I'm going to allow myself to keep them smile
