WTWW: How to Wear Velvet Boots

Hello there lovelies. Thank you for popping by the blog. Fall has finally arrived! We are in the mood for pumpkins, falling leaves, earl grey tea, and big cozy sweaters. Today we are going to talk about velvet. In particular, velvet ankle boots. There is an assumption that this material is only for evening attire, but we assure you that it’s great for daytime too! Take a look at 3 options of velvet boots we have styled for you.

These boots from Hudson are fabulously fun. They collaborated with Liberty London to create a beautiful paisley velvet print. The wood heel adds a finishing touch. We would wear these with our favorite jeans and a motorcycle jacket or embellished jean jacket.

The bold oversized coat is bigger than ever. Whether you are wearing a colorful brocade, quilted, tapestry or heavily embroidered and embellished, the velvet ankle boot is the perfect boot to pair with these fabrications. We would wear our blue re-souL bootie with our favorite statement coat.

Long cardigans and long wool vests are still going strong in fashion. Update your look with a simple black velvet bootie. Perfect with leggings or leather pants, but would also look fantastic with tights and a dress.

Our Favorite Colors for Fall

Who is ready for the change of seasons, and do we dare say, the rain? The fires in the PNW have made our skies smokey and we are ready for a little rain to clean up our atmosphere in Seattle. As more collections arrive at the shop, we definitely have some favorite colors that are inspiring us for the Fall/Winter season. Here are just a few to get you in the mood.

resouL_Blue_officine_creative

 

Deep, rich, dark blue. An alternative to black and slightly less edgy.  We love the shade of navy on this Officine Creative Chelsea boot.  We would wear these with jeans or basic black leggings. They would also look wonderful with longer skirts and of course anything dark blue.

resouL_auntsanduncles_color_story

 

Dark espresso brown with a slight hue of cool gray is the best way to describe the color of this bag from Aunts and Uncles. The perfect carry-all that can convert itself from a handbag to a tote.  We would carry this bag when we are wearing shades of olive green, gray or dark chocolate brown. Perfectly acceptable with black too.

Fresh and cool, deep greens are another favorite here at re-souL. Green is a versatile shade that can be worn with navy, gray, black and wine. These oxfords by MOMA are a basic style that would go with most anything in your wardrobe.

WTWW – 3 Ankle Boots and How to Wear Them

Hi there! It’s time for another edition of  “What to Wear Wednesday”. Since ankle boots are here to stay, we thought we would look at 3 distinctive styles and how we would wear them. We know the days don’t quite feel autumnal yet, but it will be here sooner than you know it. Whether you want to go more casual or more polished, we have some examples that are sure to fit into your personal style for this Fall.

As an every day, walk around town, kind of boot, we like the classic flat lace-up boot. These are versatile enough to wear with everything. Especially if you are a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal. We would wear these with our skinny jeans and a comfy sweater. But feel free to wear them with longer skirts and shorter dresses too.resouL_moma_ankle_boots

Sometimes getting around during the day is much easier when you are not teetering on a high skinny heel. You can be perfectly comfortable walking to the bus, on your way to work, while still looking pulled together. Besides, blocky mid heels are totally on point and on trend these days.  Although these would work with skinny jeans too, we think to style them with a skirt is a fantastic option to your basic pump. When the days become crisp, add some opaque tights and you are good to go for the cooler months ahead.

Everybody has a black ankle boot in their wardrobe, right? We love the clean simple lines of these tall heel ankle boots but, it’s all about that green color! These would look amazing with dresses and skirts. We, however, like these forest beauties with wide leg trousers.  Add a turtleneck top to balance the look of the pant leg and viola, you have an instantly chic outfit.

 What’s your favorite way to wear ankle boots? We’d love to know. For more ankle boot options shop with us at resoul.com.

WTWW – Summer Dress + re-souL Sandal

Hello! It’s time for another edition of What to Wear Wednesday. This week we are craving for the warmer weather to come back to the PNW. We thought it would be fun to pair up some summer dress styles with our re-souL sandals.

 

resouL_maxime_yellow_sandalWhat is more comfortable than a long flowy dress in the summer? Wearing a dress means you only have one thing to put on in the morning and you don’t have to think too hard about what to wear. We like the way these yellow sandals compliment a blue dress. They would look great also with the colors black, khaki and olive green.

 

resouL_grets_red_footbead_slide_sandals

When you have plans to do some touring or simply enjoy the outdoors, these red sandals will be comfy on your feet but still look smart enough to wear around town. Flip-flops no more! We like the way they balance a spaghetti strap dress. Plus red is the “not neutral”, neutral. Wear them with black, gray, blue, white or khaki.

 

resouL_tropez_orange_slide_sandal

Okay, so a jumpsuit is not technically a dress but, it has the ease of a one-piece item like a frock or a shift. We love these orange slides and how well they work with most anything. Something very chic about a flat slide when paired with a jumpsuit or a longer length dress. You’ll be heading off to dinner in style, tre’ sophistique’!

 

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the rest of the week! ~ team re-souL
