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!

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.

Trend Alert – Jeffrey Campbell Homg Low Wedge Sneaker

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

.From the time they hit the fashion scene, wedge sneakers have been a total hit. Fashionistas (and children of the 90’s) everywhere love the combination of the casual comfort of a sneaker with the style of a wedge. Those of us in the 90’s remember sneakers with huge platforms, a style the Spice Girls and club kids made popular.

Homg Low Wedge Platform Sneaker - Black

As one of the “sneakers” in Jeffrey Campbell’s JC Play Collection, the Homg Low Wedge Sneaker has been seen on several celebrities . In fact, both Miley Cyrus and Carly Rae Jepson were recently spotted in a pair of these flatforms, Miley in the studded version and Carly in the floral print. But don’t let the word sneaker fool you, these are not for athletic activities but then again shopping is a sport. You can rock them with denim shorts like Miley and Carly or really bring back the 90’s by pairing them with a cute summer dress.
