Who can forget when Flamingo fashion burst on the scene? The flamboyant, distinctive birds adorned all fabrics. From cute tees to pretty dresses, and our designer shoes - we couldn't get enough of them. We even had flamingo wallpaper! Well, now we need a new print to coo over and 2018 brings us something a little different – lobsters. The bright red crustaceans have a similar appeal to flamingos – they're one-of-a-kind and oddly iconic. The perfect pinchers are here to stay and will give your wardrobe an immediate statement edge. We have hunted down the best lobster lovelies that are so stylish you won’t mind shelling out for them…

First up, we have these adorable slip-on loafers by Kurt Geiger. Slip your feet in to these mules which feature printed camouflage detail and a dazzling lobster motifs in the craziest of hot pinks. These would look perfect with skinny jeans and a black sweater – amping up any outfit instantly.

£129, Kurt Geiger
