This fashion forward, motorcycle inspired silhouette is a welcome update to the traditional welly cut rain boot, affording fashionable women every where the opportunity to wear their favorite outfits without compromising effortless style and keeping feet warm and dry.

One of our favorite celebrity fashionistas, Jessica Alba, was spotted wearing the Seattle moto rain boot by Dav, available at DNA Footwear. Replicating the stylish star mom’s casual ensemble is as easy as throwing on a comfy shirt, a cozy cardigan and your favorite jeans. Jessica has personally paired her black pants and Dav Seattle moto rain boots with a Paige Denim Kadie shirt in Amour Plaid and an Isabel Marant for H&M Knit Cardigan.

Looking to sport the moto rain boot trend with a subtler edge and less metal hardware?  Check out the rugged Dav Moto Solid rain boot, boasting the same chic cut as the Seattle, minus the studded straps.

Sperry Top Sider carries a similar cut of rain boot, called the Falcon, available in Black and Olive. For those of you looking to take a walk on the wild side, the Sperry Top Sider Falcon is also available in a fun, animal print with studded buckle straps. All available colorways for the Falcon moto rain boot pictured, left.

Happy shopping, rainy day style mavens!

For those of us gals preferring a one-and-done approach to styling, we recommend Dolce Vita’s Jentry (4). Perhaps a seriously fashionable ode to the hilarious mullet, Dolce Vita’s Jentry is business in the front and party in the back. Featuring a sexy cutout at the heel, this cute bootie has gone slingback for the spring, and is just the thing to easily ease into a ragin’ night from a playful day!

For a legit walk on cloud 9, our Night Ragin’ hero is Flogg’s Rexfort II (9). These sole lovin’ heels are unbelievably comfortable, as they feature a memory-foam-like technology that molds to the curves of your sole, so you can party on with your sexy on.

Let the festivities rage on, DNA Beauties!!

Blanc et Noir : Classic Black & White

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

This season, the exuberant two tone trend is joyfully colorful. Still, the epitome of classic style will always be black & white. The Fashion Week gods of greater influence (like Alexander Wang, Jason Wu & Marc Jacobs, et al) have deemed it high time to bring us all back to basics, superbly in vogue, with distinguished exhibitions sans color.

Blanc et Noir: Classic Black & White

Loyal to the demands of haute couture, a few of our favorite starlets showed up to Paris Fashion week’s front rows in chic versions of the effortlessly sexy monochrome look. Proving that a fashionista’s individual style need not be sacrificed to the whim of any trend, these ladies show us how easy it is to be inspired by the current tendencies, while staying true to our sensibilities.

Make a Statement with Jeffrey Campbell Heels

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Jeffrey Campbell is known for creating the most architecturally and visually gorgeous shoes. His innovatively designed sky high heels have given him the moniker of footwear genius – an appropriate title. The audacious styles from this edgy and fashion forward designer are on everyone’s wish list (yours truly included) and they will continue to be so season after season. This spring make a statement in Jeffrey Campbell’s fearless and beguiling heels. A few favorites available now are:

jeffrey-campbell

1. Beebee Mid Platform Shoe – this style is also known as the “Flatform”, the perfect combination of the flat and platform shoe. This style was seen all over the runways last spring and is a great alternative to the platform as well as a perfect fir for those who want the height and a level surface.

2. Rockin-Ex High Heel – this show-stopping, peeptoe leopard pony hair platform booties features Jeffrey Campbell’s modern take on a 70′s style heel. The architectural cutout wooden wedge looks amazing with skinny jeans or rolled slouchy pants.

3. Follie High Platform Sandal – not quite a wedge but more than a heel, this towering retro-chic sandal features a sky-high platform, pop-art straps and a chunky wooden heel with a split; a wedge/platform heel hybrid that bring the free loving style of the past to the present time. It’s a great accent to a chic pair of shorts.

4. Str8 Lace Platform Sandal – another Jeffrey Campbell genius design moment is this heel-less platform. This lace covered work of art is Campbell’s avant garde translation of spring’s hottest shoe – the platform. The lace gives this sculpted beauty a vintage feel which work seamlessly when paired with maxi skirts and dresses. This must-have shoe also amps your style quota to maximum levels and since they are Jeffrey Campbell, they work great with any denim silhouette.

5. So Much High Heel Sandal – another favorite among fashionistas, this chunky wood heel features a burlap-wrapped platform and wide braided leather straps. This rustic country and sleek urban hybrid highlights the best of both regions – edgy toughness with high fashion style. They are especially stylish when paired with a more romantic look.

Celebrity: Elizabeth and James Wishlist

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Elizabeth and James Collection

It’s brands like these that make my job excruciatingly painful. The gorgeous elegance of textured, pattern heavy combinations mixed throughout the Elizabeth and James collection makes a girl want what she can’t have. Fusing  an uptown chic with downtown couture, colorful accents and masculine cuts, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have yet again released double trouble for my pocket book.

Vintage x Retro x  Modern, from shoes to accessories this collection turns the fashion conscious head spinning. Luxuriously modern in approach the twins have managed to capture classic elegance with contemporary cool. A bit pricey for the average consumer but each piece speaks loudly, so splurging every once in awhile with this brand will keep your closet up to date. Above are my SOME of my favorites and there is much more coming from the Spring collection. Included in DNA’s New Arrivals is a pair of the E-Clair Colorblock  High Heel Sandal.
