We're all pretty much over winter now here at QVC Towers, and we're just waiting for the warmer weather to set in so that we can dig out our cool, floaty dresses, summer brights and, most importantly – so we can show off our pedicures with fabulous summer sandals!
So, even though the sun may not be shining, now is the time to get your wardrobe sorted for the new season and we've got some great summer footwear coming your way on QVC, including a new Australian brand called Holster. We caught up with Jo from the brand to find out more…
Holster® is Australia's leading jellies footwear brand for ladies and girls. Sold in more than 50 countries and 1,500 stores worldwide, they offer unique, stylish, yet comfortable footwear straight from Noosa Beach on the east coast of Australia.
Tell us about yourself, and your association with Holster?
I am Jo Goodwin, mummy of two young boys, and the distributor for Holster, exclusively in the UK and Ireland. When I discovered Holsters in my home town in West Sussex, I loved them so much, I contacted the company and after a year, was given exclusive distributorship!
What are some of your favourite shoes from the collection and why?
My favourite style is actually one of Dannii Minogue's favorites too – the St Tropez in Champagne, as it's so stylish, comfy and can be worn with almost any outfit! Also, the Dream Jelly in both Champagne and Pewter, which is simple and chic and looks like you're wearing flats, but has a little hidden heel that gives you that little bit of height!
What footwear trends should we look out for this summer?
Jellies are so big this season, possibly because they are very comfy, easy to wear and lightweight, as well as stylish - and they can be worn with anything, for any occasion! But also wedges continue to be popular. Women like to look stylish and elegant, but comfort is just as important these days!
Don't miss the launch of Holster jelly sandals at QVC on 14th April at 5pm as part of our Summer Fashion event.
Birkenstocks are always a popular choice for the summer and this season is no exception. Look out for some great new designs and fashionable favourites.
We particularly love the Betula by Birkenstock Burma Espepa sandal (pictured left). This simple, stylish design is perfect for any age and comes in great colours, including a chic cream shade that's so on-trend this season.
Birkenstock are all about the colour this season. Look out for lots of vibrant bright colours and animal print remains a huge trend for 2013 so keep your eyes peeled for a special animal print on its way. We love the Betula by Birkenstock Energy Eva flip flops pictured below. They come in a variety of fab colours – perfect for adding that splash of colour to your summer wardrobe.
Clarks also return this month with a fantastic Today's Special Value offer on Monday 11th March. The Clarks Plait Alto bendable sandals are made with soft, supple leather with a flexible outer sole. Supremely comfortable and super stylish, these wedge sandals are the perfect way to add a feminine touch to your footwear collection. Don't forget to tune on the 11th to find out more!
