ravel ss19 collection

The latest SS19 collection has just launched at Ravel and we can’t wait to show you the new styles added. The SS19 collection gives a nod to the key looks of the season: vibrant contrast colours, soft metallics and animal prints. Designs flourish across elegant evening wear and versatile everyday sandals, exuding a new season confidence that will propel stylish women from AM to PM with ease!

Inspired by a return to basics and living in harmony with the land, this season we take it back to where the aesthetic is untreated with a neutral palette celebrating the diversity of the world.

Ravel has the perfect spring/summer shoes that will take you from poolside to beach bar and beyond. Our collection includes shoes to suit all preferences including; flats, heels, slingbacks and slip-ons. Take a look at our breakdown of the newest trends to shop now.

Mexican Street Party


The new range draws on the colours and textures of a Mexican street party, think vibrant and confident. ‘Fiesta’ brings the festival feel to your summer footwear and features multi-coloured weaved and vibrant satin uppers, tassel detailing and hurrache styling which are influenced by the artisanal details and vibrant hues of Mexico.

A summer fling for your feet, this collection includes essential styles such as the simple to slip-on Dania and the bold and elevating Dixie which offers added height with a block wedge heel. Also colourful is the smaller heeled Celmont, which features a detailed colour block heel in woven material.

Animal Prints

Some animal print sandals, such as leopard print, have been consistently on-trend for decades but others have joined them for the new season’s aesthetic. Zebra print is a trend you can expect to see everywhere this year and at Ravel this is no exception. The Manatee takes on the monochrome print effortlessly for a fashionable sandal you’ll want to wear throughout your summer endeavours. Leopard print gets a rework in our pony leather Franklin.

Day to Night Metallics

Our collection of metallic sandals were just made for nights out on holiday. A silver strappy option like the Jackson tick both heel and gladiator trends off in one, whilst the Yulee  and Dixie sandals both offer a wedge heel, with the Yulee also providing pretty embellishment for a stunning result.

Pair our shimmering metallic sandals with a metallic clutch bag for a glam look or simply add to a simple dress for daytime chic.

Block Heels and Classic Shoes

The SS19 collection doesn’t just include sandals, we also have fresh takes on classic silhouettes such as court shoes and slingbacks for the new season. The court shoe gets a contemporary update with the addition of a block heel in our covetable Barton style, looking for a higher heel? Take a look at the taller Baldwin version.

The slingback also gets a block heel iteration in our Highlands shoe, which comes in a colour clashing fuschia with orange trim and a bold leopard print.

Traditional court shoes with a slimmer heel are also available, see our recurring Edson shoe for an array of colours and designs from denim to mesh.

Last but not least is our Brooker loafer, which updates the typical shape with a backless design to make it a slip-on fit. The Brooker has a suede upper which sumptuously soft for a comfortable fit and comes in a selection of colours and prints.

5 Ways To Brighten Up Your Office Outfit

It can be difficult to add seasonal changes to an office outfit, especially if there is a certain dress code in place. This summer however, you needn’t feel stuck in a rut with your outfit choices whilst at work because at Ravel we’ve got some excellent ways to brighten up your office outfit.

Firstly, let’s consider the popular summer shades that have the potential to work well as office attire when incorporated correctly:

  • Coral – A summer staple and an all round flattering colour on every skintone.
  • Green – One of the most popular shades for 2017 due to Pantone choosing it as their ‘Colour of The Year’ – from emerald green to lime green, it’s all groovy.
  • Pink – Not just any pink, but ‘millennial pink’ which is the shade everyone has been swooning over. It’s a beautiful dusky rose.
  • Blue – A whole spectrum of blue is perfect for summer, from cool water light blue to modern navy.

Now we have a colour palette in mind for ways to brighten up an office outfit, it’s time to take a look at our suggestions!

1. Sun-inspired accessories

An inexpensive way to update an otherwise plain work outfit is to treat yourself to some stylish accessories. As summer is all about embracing a new colour palette, accessories is a fabulous method of incorporating shades into your everyday work look. Plastic jewellery such as bangles or beads can radiate a bright colour especially well. A beautiful statement necklace can add extra style whilst also being eye-catching – the perfect finishing touch.

If you love your designer handbags but tend to steer towards a ‘safe’ colour such as black or navy, take it to another level by investing in an on-trend metallic bag or looking for a python print that will add a little something extra to create a fashion forward work ensemble.

If you’re not too keen on bright pops of colour in your accessories, you could simply layer up or coordinate your jewellery. For example, as rose gold is very much still in fashion, match a pair of rose gold earrings with a rose gold bracelet and necklace. You could also opt for a watch that has a coloured dial face. Another way to accessorise can be to layer necklaces or bracelets, or even ‘stack’ multiple rings onto one finger. It’s a subtle detail that will still be noticed, without being too overpowering.

2. Summer footwear

Here at Ravel we believe that a good pair of shoes can change your entire mood, whatever the occasion. When you’re wearing uninspiring footwear for work, you just might feel that your whole outfit isn’t as great as you want it to be!

For those who prefer a bit of height to their everyday shoe, we suggest working the combination style of a wedge and espadrille for summertime. A wedge espadrille can make you feel summery even when you’re sat inside enjoying the office air con, and we have a number of espadrille wedges to take your fancy here at Ravel. Choose from black, navy or coral coloured wedge espadrilles for assured style that can be worn with skirts and trousers.

If there’s no policy on open toe shoes in your office, then hurrah! This summer calls for a stylish sandal that can add a spring to your step from the photocopier to your desk. Get on board with the ever so popular embroidery trend with the Ravel Savannah flat sandals in white leather with beautiful floral embroidered detailing, or swap your usual black footwear for a more summer season appropriate hue with the Ravel Anderson strappy sandals in tan. Bring the timeless denim trend into the office without wearing jeans by opting for the Ravel Ritzville flat sandals in blue denim which can be worn from desk to cocktails with friends!

3. Embrace prints

It’s such a classic look but animal prints and other creative patterns can work wonders to bring an outfit right up to date. Subtle pops of leopard print or Aztec print fit right in with summer wardrobes and can be styled effortlessly for work too! Our V&A footwear collaboration will suit those who seek some exceptional prints due to the patterns that are taken directly from an artist’s work from the V&A archive. We love that the V&A footwear takes a print and makes it work perfectly on different footwear styles, such as ballet pumps, wedges, pointed court shoes and sandals. The V&A women’s shoes with the red rose pattern would be a wonderful pop of colour for an otherwise plain work outfit, as would the intriguing 70s inspired print with browns and turquoise colour scheme. The flat pumps and pointed court shoes are absolutely ideal for the work environment.

4. Lighten your wardrobe

An obvious yet failsafe method of brightening your work outfit options is to invest in a summer work wardrobe. Trade the darker colours with lighter ones, or opt for light shades of your current favourites if you don’t want to step too far outside of your comfort zone. The ‘millennial pink’ is a popular top colour, whilst textures such as ruffles are an important summertime detail not to miss out on. Similarly, with the prints mentioned above, a patterned shirt can really bring some elevated style to your look as a welcome summertime outfit option for work. From polka dots to paisley, something that will bring your outfit to life is exactly what you need! If you’re feeling daring, why not try out a white trouser suit?

5. Nail it at work

The power of a good manicure and pedicure should never be underestimated. Bright colours on the fingernails (and toes if they’re being shown off in sandals) can lift your mood whilst adding to an overall outfit. If you’re current work wardrobe is tethered to the usual colour scheme of greys, creams, black and white, then temporary changes such as painted nails can go a long way into brightening up the look, even if it is subtle! Whilst red will always be a staple nail varnish shade, try a vibrant turquoise or coral nail varnish for summer that will contrast wonderfully against a grey or navy jacket, or select a lovely lilac nail polish shade that will bring a touch of femininity to your office outfit.

Brighten your work outfit this summer with Ravel and take a look at our popular range of sandals, flat pumps and wedge espadrilles to add some seasonal updates to your footwear collection.

Say ‘I Do’ To Wedding Guest Footwear

Wedding season is underway and whether you’ve just saved the date or you have some weddings coming up this summer, thoughts will no doubt turn to what to wear for each occasion. With the British summer, can you rely on good weather? Can you trust your heels to get you through the whole day and night? So many questions! Here at Ravel we have some amazing wedding guest footwear and occasion footwear options on offer to pique your interest and hopefully solve those footwear concerns. So read ahead and get some inspiration for your summer weddings. Disclaimer: we cannot ensure sunny weather!

Party shoes

Once the outfit is planned, then it’s time to ask yourself: what shoes do I wear for a wedding? The answer is entirely what you will feel comfortable in – we all know how painful feet can kill the glamorous vibe! Feeling dressed up from head to toe as a wedding guest can put us in a good mood and ready for a full day of celebration. Whether you’re naturally a high heel gal, or want to wear something different from your usual footwear choices, our range of women’s heels vary from low heel to stiletto heel depending on how daring you feel on the big day.

We love the slingback design of the Ravel Kinney heeled pumps and the mid height heel, ensuring a comfortable fit so that you can happily dance the night away!. The snake print upper adds an interesting texture to the shoe whilst the pointed toe keeps the look sophisticated and reliably on-trend. Choose from tropical coral or versatile gold for a heeled shoe you can wear time and again. This court shoe style has had a total revamp courtesy of the striking faux snakeskin upper and would finish off a mid length dress to perfection.

Nude shoes are always a fabulous option for weddings due to the elegant appearance and total wearability. Our Ravel shoes offer a range of nude heels suitable for summer weddings, and can be teamed with floral dresses, offering a feminine footwear look. Opt for suede or a patent finish with the Ravel Newton pointed court shoes or the Ravel V&A Helena patent shoes, which feature a beautiful floral lining. A classic court shoe silhouette is a failsafe design that you can wear for multiple special occasions this summer!

Flat wedding guest shoes

If heels aren’t your thing, flat occasion shoes will come to your rescue. With flats you can ensure that you can carry on partying through the night! Go for the easily styled neutral tones or opt for patterned flats to inject some vibrancy to your wedding guest outfit.

A fabulous way to add some style to a flat wedding shoe is to look for embellishments to elevate the shoe design to special occasion status. We love the Ravel Winthrop flat pumps in silver lurex which feature a beautiful brooch style detail on the toe, making them an excellent wedding day alternative! The elegant ankle fastening and overall shiny appeal of these women’s shoes will no doubt perk up an outfit for a summer wedding. Sticking with the impeccably on-trend metallic look we also have the Ravel Medina flat pumps in silver with moc-croc print and delicate cut-out detailing surrounding the toe. The metallic silver shoe is a great all rounder that you can team with virtually any wedding outfit you pull together, and can be worn all summer long!

Matching shoes with an outfit

Neutral coloured dresses or skirt and top combinations can be livened up with a statement heel or heeled sandal. Not only does a bright colour or fancy embellishment on the feet draw attention to your legs, you can also successfully co-ordinate accessories this way, for example by opting for a bag in a similar shade or wearing earrings in a corresponding hue. Outfits which feature busy patterns or an all-over print would suit a more neutral shoe in order to not overwhelm the look completely.

We’ve got so many options of Ravel shoes that you’re bound to find the right shoe for your wedding guest outfit, so browse the selections of expertly designed women’s shoes to find the perfect fit for you this wedding season. Whether you’re after a flat wedding shoe or something more glamorous, discover the sublime wedding guest footwear options on offer here at Ravel and enjoy free UK delivery with your order!

Fabulous Festival Footwear

Festival season is almost upon us and as expected, our thoughts are all about what footwear to take to an outdoor festival. With British festivals, it can go both ways due to the unpredictable weather we are accustomed to; will we be trudging through the mud to see our favourite band or frolicking in the sunshine beside the stage? We’re praying for dry weather this festival season so we can bring out our favourite flat sandals from Ravel! We’ve put together a festival footwear guide to cover all bases, just remember to pack your wellies in case of inclement weather!

These boots are made for walking

A comfortable pair of boots are the perfect footwear option for festivals; not only do they look fashionable, but they can be useful when the weather isn’t too great. Opt for an ankle boot with a low heel for a comfortable feeling all day (or night) long. Our range of flat boots here at Ravel include some classic designs, such as the Ravel Johnson ankle chelsea boots available in black and brown leather. Crafted with Micro-Fresh technology, these boots will stay odour free for longer – just what you need when you’re facing a few days sans shower! The pull up tabs on the back of each shoe makes them easy slide on. With a supple leather upper and stunning tweed detailing on the elasticated side panels, this ankle boot oozes quality in every way. For an updated take on the Chelsea boot, we have the Ravel Roseburg ankle boots in black suede with double leather strap and buckle detail. Effortlessly chic, these boots are a sound alternative. The Chelsea boot is a timeless festival footwear option that can be worn with skinny jeans and a long sleeved shirt for a gig-ready outfit.

For a feminine touch, we love the Ravel Turner ankle boots which has beautiful floral embroidery on tan coloured soft suede. With the wooden block heel and wide top, this style of women’s boots has a definite Western feel to it. Pair these suede ankle boots with a maxi skirt or dress with a denim jacket for a bohemian festival look.

Ravel Johnson Chelsea Boots £65, Ravel Roseburg Ankle Boots £90 & Ravel Turner Ankle Boots £80

A pair of knee high boots can also be a stylish alternative to wellies – providing that it isn’t too muddy of course! Knee high boots look fabulous teamed with a pair of shorts and long socks, as seen on festival queen and supermodel Kate Moss. Again, it’s a good idea to opt for a flat boot for comfort. For a classic over the knee boot option, we suggest the Ravel Floyd in black suede with a simple round toe, or go for a versatile tan leather knee high boot such as the Ravel Markham. Knee high boots are a great investment as they will last long past the festival season and will become your go-to footwear choice for autumn.

Ravel Markham Knee High Boots £125 & Ravel Floyd Over The Knee Boots £99


Believe it or not, sometimes it’s not all mud and rain at British festivals. If you’re heading to the infamous Glastonbury festival in June, take a break from the wellies and add some Ravel Moab flat sandals to your rucksack for those days when the land is dry and the sun is shining. The flat sandals in silver leather are in tune with the popular metallic trend that is everywhere this season with it’s distinctive reflective finish. Plus, the razor tooth effect sole provides extra grip for walks over unsteady terrain back to your tent! For a total fusion of current trends, we recommend the Ravel Rockwall wedge sandals which display two trends in one – metallics and animal print. Opt for classic leopard print or zebra print in pony leather for a simple, slip on sandal that will lend itself to plenty of different outfit options. Show off your summer pedicure with our collection of women’s open-toe flat sandals which are bang on-trend for the warmer season.

Ravel Moab Flat Sandals £55 & Ravel Rockwall Wedge Sandals £55

Whether you’re heading to the countryside for a family friendly festival such as Latitude, or opting for a big stage on a city green like the Parklife Weekender, at Ravel we’ve got all of your festival footwear options covered with our fantastic ranges of women’s boots and flat sandals.
