WTWW ~ How to Wear Brown

The kids are back in school and the weather is slowly changing. It’s time for another “What to Wear Wednesday”. The color brown is the new neutral of the season. Don’t worry, black is not going anywhere. But, it’s been awhile since we have seen brown on our feet as a fashion color so, we thought we would show you some examples of how we would wear this versatile shade.

Faux fur in every style and color is the coat of the season. We would wear this “teddy bear” coat with these two-tone ankle boots from Ernesto Dolani. They’re borrowed from the boys, yet slightly feminine with its chunky heel.

If you haven’t already noticed. Plaid everything is also the trend when it comes to prints. Besides wearing these oxfords with pants, we would gladly wear them with tights and a dress. Moma’s wingtip design and rich coffee color make them the perfect match for an outfit like this.

We are diggin all the spicy tone colors in ready to wear for this season. We love pumpkin, rust, mustard, ochre and olive greens. Best neutral to go with? Brown of course! We would wear these dark chocolate beauties from Ernesto Dolani with everything!

 

So the question is, are you ready for Fall? Thanks for stopping by the blog and we hope to see you in the shop! All styles available in-store and on-line. To see more Fall goodness head over to our website ~ resoul.com

Early Fall Arrivals: Chelsea Boots 3 Ways

Hello, it’s been a while since we posted anything on the blog. We have been receiving a few early Fall arrivals. So in the spirit of getting ready for the change of seasons, we thought we would show you how we would wear our favorite boot, the Chelsea Boot! A classic style that can be worn with virtually everything. Versatile and comfortable!

officine_creative_chelsea_boot

A big trend for this season is animal prints. These Officine Creative boots would look great with a pair of kick flare jeans and a long cheetah/leopard print vest.

Another fun Fall trend is mixing plaids and checks together. These Fiorentini and Baker boots are perfect for this casual look. Wear them with your favorite denim and plaid shirt.

A leather dress is a must for the dressier side of creative work attire. Wear these fancy MOMA boots with tights and an oversized sweater to top off the look.

 

What do you think? Are you ready for Fall yet? Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you at re-souL soon!

WTWW – How to Wear Mules

Hello! It’s time for another edition of What to Wear Wednesday. This week we are enjoying the warmer Spring weather in the PNW. We thought it would be fun to show you how to wear mules. A mule is a closed-toe open-heel shoe that comes in different heel heights. We love them as an alternative to wearing a sandal.

halmanera_black_pleated_mules

What is more comfortable than wearing a pair of broken-in jeans? Wearing them with a mule! A mule is a good way to be comfortable but still look polished enough for a casual day at work or going out in the evening. We like the way this Halmanera pointed toe style looks with a tapered jean. These would also look fantastic with a pair of black kick-crop pants as well.

golo_silver_moc_mules

 

So you feel like wearing shorts but sneakers and sandals feel too casual for streetwear or a casual work environment. This silver moccasin style mule looks as smart as wearing a loafer, but is as comfortable as a slipper. We like the metallic silver because metallics are a great neutral as an alternative to basic black or brown. Wear these with everything!

resouL_collection_madora _mule

We love the look of mules so much, that we designed and developed our own style. Our Madora style comes in 5 colors. We like the way this re-souL collection version looks with skirts and dresses. The cut of the vamp in a deep-V, makes your legs look longer. Bonus! These would also look amazing with wide-leg crop pants too.

 

So hopefully we have inspired you to try out wearing mules. What do you think? Which mule could work for you?

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.

resouL_moma_oxford_green_story

 

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.

resoul_pmonjo_ankle_boots

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.

resouL_officine_creative_ankle_boots

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’!
