Dolce & Gabbana showed huge wedges with bunches of grapes and porcelain faces, Céline showed very abstract metal heels and Mary Katrantzou’s were covered in perfect pretty flowers. The key rule here is anything goes as long as the heel is high and covered in something interesting. Just make sure the rest of your outfit doesn’t try and overtake. If heels are too much for the office, go for wedges.
