Trend Highlight: LACE-UP SHOES

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Want to continue staying on trend this summer? Try the popular style of sandals, heels and flats that lace-up. Laces are no longer just for sneakers and boots anymore; designers have made this traditional way to secure your foot available in non-traditional silhouettes.

A trend that was huge in 2008 (huge for booties) and 2009 (first appearance of lace-up sandals), lace-up shoes are making just as big an impact this year.

Some great options include the Miss Sixty Cheryl High Heel Slingback, J Shoes Hickory High Heel Pump, Luichiny Tell All Low Heel Sandal, Miz Mooz Patricia Peep Toe Wedge, Camper 21569 Holly Low Heel Sandal, and Chelsea Crew Melissa Flat Slingback.

Trend Tuesday: All Denim Everything

 Vans, Converse and UGGS have got the blues…Blue Jeans that is and Lana Del Rey even has a song named after the classic and classy casual wear. With everything from hats to backpacks being accented with denim, many shoe brands have hopped on board.

Transitioning from Winter to Spring can be somewhat intimidating. With festival season arrived, SxSW is taking over Austin and Coachella is just along the horizon, proper denims will have you Rockin’ n Rollin’ or just takin’ a walk along the wild side. You can play dress up with funky chunks from the likes of Steve Madden, Jeffrey Campbell, Rachel Zoe, Report Signature (need I say more?)  or doll them down in festive flats from Seychelles, Yosi Samra or Gee WaWa

Take the easy route and hide excess winter weight with high wasted acid wash denim shorts or revamp your closet with  a good ol’ trip to the craft store. Taking the vintage approach and cutting up old jeans or studding the seams will enliven a hibernating ensemble but a statement shoe will stick like glue!

WHATEVER you choose, casual denim wear must be accompanied with the right shoes. As this month’s must-have fabric its about time to revisit your closet and double check that you have sufficient footing for every occasion. Festivals or fiestas, damsels in denim are embracing rough and rugged and ready to ride.

Where Wear? Valentine’s Day

Monday, January 16th, 2012

valentines day

While Valentine’s Day may not be everyone’s favorite holiday, it doesn’t mean that you can’t dress your best — no matter if you’re single or taken. Join in on this Hallmark holiday in the red and black spirit (because pink is so cliche).

Do your best in February to show old Cupid that you’re not as anti-love as you thought you were. Maybe if you get your feet in the spirit, you won’t be as inclined to make a sour face every time a couple kisses on the street or makes goo-goo eyes at one another. Wearing one statement red or black piece is acceptable but steer clear of being matchy-matchy and looking like a walking candy kiss.

Where Wear: New Year’s Eve Men’s Style

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

new year's eve

It may be easy for women to find New Year’s Eve shoes, but for most men the task is daunting. Here is a brief guide to NYE shopping for Men:

1. Stick to basic black, which goes with everything and is classic.

2. Don’t spend more than $150 on shoes you most likely won’t wear more than a handful of times per year.

3. Oxfords, loafers, and evening sneakers are your friend.

4. For the love of all things fashionable, match your belt to your shoes!

Where Wear? New Year’s Eve

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

new year's eve

Pop the champagne. Que the fireworks. Grab your significant other (or a random. No judgement here). Let’s party like it’s New Years Eve!

Typically, New Year’s Eve shoes are sparkly, glittery, crystal-encrusted, overly-detailed hot messes but this year we’re toning it down. While we still appreciate a little glitter, please for the love of all things fashionable, do NOT match your sparkly shoes to your sparkly dress. Let your shoes stand out this year, whether they be glittery, color popping, or elegantly sophisticated.

Where Wear? Traveling

The holidays are chaotic enough without agonizing over what to wear while traveling. From the endless security checks to overweight baggage, prioritizing your travel attire is key.

Stay away from sky high heels and excessive buckles and instead opt for flats or booties. Nobody likes to stand in line waiting while the primadona ahead of them takes her precious time unstrapping her boots. Additionally, nobody likes being THAT girl. Make your travels less hectic and let DNA do all the work — all you have to do is pick, click, and tada! they’re yours.

Where Wear: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, what are you going to wear?!  Obviously, that’s the most important decision other than the turkey, right? This Turkey Day, stick with a neutral footwear pallet that will work with any outfit choice. Who says neutral had to be boring? Whether you’re entertaining at home or headed out for a special dinner, there is a perfect shoe for you:

1. Burr, It’s Cold: So it’s 40 degrees out but rocking Uggs doesn’t seem like the most glamorous thing to wear … enter the Rachel Zoe ‘Audrey’! The high ankle cut of the boot will keep you nice and warm but looking oh-so chic at the same time.

2. Home for the Holidays: Mom may be cooking in her house shoes and Dad, his socks, but you can be comfy and cute with the Dolce Vita ‘Banya’.  The bow adds the perfect girly detail that will have your sister asking: “Where did you get those boots?”.

3. Hostess with the Mostess: Just because your running around getting dinner ready for 20+ people doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style! The Mia ‘Britannia’ flat will add “umph” to any outfit and leopard is hot hot hot right now. 

4. Fancy Time: Steal the show with the simple yet sexy Badgley Mischka ‘Hyde’. It’s the perfect holiday shoe that will carry you through New Years and beyond.

5. Out on the Town:  If you’re headed to a posh Thanksgiving dinner then the Steven ‘Mercyy’ will definitely make a statement. The platform will keep you comfortable while you schmooze plus metallic goes with everything!

Now there is no excuse not to look FAB on Thanksgiving!

For an inexperienced dresser, it can be difficult to pair your new Jeffrey Campbell Busted High Wedge Booties. While you’ve proven your keen sense of style by purchasing these wedges, you’ve only mastered half the battle; now, where to wear these chunky booties…

The rich blackness, the buckles, and the woven hatching make these booties perfect for attending a concert, moshing your way into the heart of the lead singer. If loud ear-buzzing music isn’t your thing, try these boots on for size at a gallery opening, schmoozing among the “we wear black to express our inner angst” crowd. Not a head-banger OR an all-black-gallery-attending-bourgeoisie, tromps down to your local vintage shop, where you’re sure to get compliments on your new Jeffrey Campbells.

The oversized, chunky, black wedge bootie is not for everyone, nor is it for the faint of heart, but for those daring enough to edge up their look, the Jeffrey Campbell Busted High Wedge Booties are a must-have.
