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.

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.

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

Three Spring Fashion Trends That Never Go Out of Style

Ah, the promise of Spring. Warmer days, lighter layers, softer colors. These new key styles that we just have received into the shop have us wishing for balmier, weather now! We picked three top clothing trends that we would consider our “uniform” for spring and summer. Colors and materials that never go out of style are paired up with our favorite P.Monjo sandals.

Spring Trends All White

You wear all black in the winter so, why not wear all white in the Spring? This peep-toe slide in creamy shades of white would be perfect with wide leg pants and fuller skirts and cotton dresses. Easy and breezy all season long.

Spring Trend Chambray and Fisherman Sandals

We love wearing our jeans, right? Chambray is the spring kissing cousin to fall and winter denim. This updated fisherman in a mid-tone brown, will add the finishing touch to these lighter hues of indigo. Wear these sandals with shorts, skirts or dresses. They make a good counterpoint to the feminine details of the ruffles in skirts and tops.

Spring Trend Classic Khaki

Khaki has been a staple for Spring for as long as we can remember. Who doesn’t love a classic trench coat or the comfort of cotton twill pants? These sandals would be the finishing touch to your casual work day attire. But also feminine enough to wear with tailored skirts and dresses too.

So, what do you think? Time to add a fresh new shoe to your own spring uniform?

Metallic Boot Trend

With the deep rich colors that the Fall Season always brings, and the continuation of the ankle boot trend, we think that metallic boots are a fantastic way to add some oomph to your wardrobe.

Metallic Boot Trend: Kupuri boot

These Kupuri black metallic ankle boots are the perfect alternative to the pump. Plus they’ll keep your feet a lot warmer than an exposed pump or heeled sandal. We would wear these with dresses and wide leg pants. They would look great with or without hosiery.

Metallic Boot Trend: re-souL Iris short boot

Our very own re-souL ankle boot would look amazing with your favorite jeans and a chunky sweater. Because the bronze color is neither warm or cool, you could wear these with the full spectrum of color. Think of it as a neutral. These will look great with monochrome colors, jewel tones or warm rusty browns and mustard yellows.

Top 3 Fall Trends

Must-have Fall Trends

Now that we are into the thick of the season of cooler temperatures, pumpkin flavors in about almost everything, and sweater weather, we think you need to know what the top 3 trends are for right now.

When you are not in the mood for your tall boots, may we suggest a chunky heel oxford to wear with your tights and dresses?

Craving a little bling? We suggest a metallic shoe to bring just enough shine and sparkle to your cozy knits.

Swap out those warmer weather slip-ons for an everyday ankle boot to keep your feet warm and comfy.

Brown is Back!

With the weather changing and the rain coming back, we are starting to get in the mood for Fall shoes. After a couple of seasons of black and gray, it’s nice to see some rich shades of brown in the shop like tan/camel, russet, and dark chocolate.

Brown is Back : Tan Tilda clog by re-souL

Our re-souL clog “Tilda” is the perfect light color brown for transitioning into Fall. We would wear these with denim and our favorite skirts and dresses. When it gets a bit cooler we would wear these with some fun patterned socks.

Brown is Back : P. Monjo P-982 Cuff Boot

We love the richness of this russet brown boot by P.Monjo. A brown shade with a hint of red, we would wear these boots with our favorite cable tights and midi-skirts. This color is also very complimentary to navy, burgundy and burnt orange.

Brown is Back : MOMA chelsea boot in Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate brown is a versatile shade that can be worn with navy, gray and taupe. These Chelsea boots by MOMA are a basic style that would go with most anything in your wardrobe.
