What’s Hot Right Now! – Wooden Heels

One of the biggest trends on the scene are wooden heels. Yes I said it, wooden heels! I actually love the contrast of a patent vamp with wooden heels. I personally like to see wooden heels paired with denim, for example a boat neck blouse tucked in high waisted jeans. It’s a great way to dress up a casual look for the day.

What’s Hot Right Now! – Boat Shoes

These shoes have been popular for some time now, but it’s spring so I must highlight a great shoe to have for the warm weather. One thing I love about these shoes is that both you and your hubby can rock these babies. It looks great on the fellas when it’s paired with a v-neck slightly tucked in rolled up pants. Take it into the night by adding a blazer to that look. Ladies these kicks can be paired with almost anything. Try wearing yours with a sleeveless tee tucked in a varsity mini. Let’s think of shoes as the perfect fit for a casual look without looking dressed down.

What’s Hot Right Now! – Oxfords

Oxford, oxfords, oxfords oh my! Everyone is wearing em’. I would like to think of these kicks as the perfect dress casual shoes. They are preppy and a classic choice, so as with any classic piece in fashion, it never goes out of style. It will get reinvented over and over again, but will remain true to it’s original style. Did I mention how super comfy they are, I swear they are. Wearing them with shorts or skirt? Try yours with knee highs or white socks for a school girls look. If that’s not your style you can always stick with the ankle socks. Below I’ve pulled a variety of styles: buckles, classic two tone, metallic etc., the list goes on. Check it out! Then go grab yourself a pair, promise you won’t regret it.

Kanye Takes Fashion Week

Here Kanye is wearing a loose fitting gray tee tucked inside black leather fitted pants. If you plan on wearing multiple colours like Kanye did here, try not to exceed three. The goal is to look effortless.
Fellas the harem pants are definitely becoming a hit again for you guys. I suggest sticking to satin fabrics as Kanye did here. It looks fashion forward and gives you that casually cool look.
You cannot go wrong with a monochromatic look. Spice up your look by adding a single colour into the mix.
Yes Kanye has become quite the fashion risk taker. This leather leopard bomber is oh so hot! When wearing this piece, keep everything else simple so that you’re not looking like you tried so hard. We ladies love it when the fellas put in the effort, but not looking over done.

Style Breakdown – Leopard is Still In!

Chloe is one fashion risk taker! She dresses for fashion with absolutely no fear, gotta love that about her! I’m a huge fan of the leopard print, so this look has my sign of approval. In this look Chloe is wearing an almost knee length leopard print button up, worn under a black cuffed blazer. Adding the bow tie and knee high socks I think made this look less sexy and more fashionable.

Style Breakdown – Opposites Attract!

Zoe rocking an all Micheal Kors look. She does this menswear inspired look so well. The plunging neckline on this blouse is oh so feminine! Opting for sequined cropped pants, you cannot get anymore girly than that. By pairing the satin blouse with the sequined pants created a match made in heaven.

Style Breakdown – Perfect Structure!

I just love the structure of this metallic tiered mini by Chanel Haute Couture. The plunging neckline detail draws your attention immediately to the centre of this piece. This is a perfect example of a lady who dresses for fashion and not for men.

What’s Hot Right Now! – Edgy Wedges

Wedges are all the rage right now! Not just any wedges, I’m talking about ‘Edgy Wedges’. With Spring around the corner, these babies are perfect for those sunny spring days. If you’re not a heel kinda gal, I suggest opting for these style. Not only are they ridiculously comfy, but they will dress up any casual day look. Maybe you can relate: During the spring/summer season, in the past I just wanted to dress up that day look of mine, but of course I was not going to put myself through that discomfort of having to wear heels the entire day. I don’t think so! So I was left to settle for the usual flats. Not anymore! I find these are the perfect items for me to dress up my day look. The styles are endless and so many to choose from to match any look without having to sacrifice your comfort. I totally vouch for this hot new item. Check out some of the current styles I pulled below.
