Hello! It’s time for another “What to Wear” installment. We have been receiving lots of new items in the past couple of weeks. Please go to resoul.com to see the latest arrivals!

This week we focus on the color yellow. People tend to get intimidated by color but, really there is nothing to be self conscious about. Think of colored shoes as an added accessory  to your basics. Yellow looks great with neutrals such as white, gray, black and navy.  We really like yellow with blue, as you’ll see in the following examples.

What to Wear: 3 Spring Trends to Try

Hello! We have been receiving some new Spring shoes and they have us inspired to wear something fresh for the change of season. This weekend is supposed to be nice, so how about giving these trends a try?  ernesto_dolani_perf_oxfords

Pastel colors for Spring continue this season. Ease into milder weather with a pretty pastel plaid top and some breezy wide leg crops. Finish your look with a pair of perforated blush tone oxfords, a great alternative to a sandal.

It seems that there are two strong trends at the moment. Shades of burnt orange, sienna, and rusty brown are dominating the blogs and fashion magazines. The other is the jumpsuit. Wear this casual piece with a color-block slide in the new neutral shades of terra cotta and blush. The perfect sandal for the laid back style of a linen jumpsuit.

Mixing patterns such as stripes and florals are a fun way to add some life to your typically neutral based wardrobe. If you’re going to make a statement, you might as well go all the way! Bright hues like this red sculptural pump are a great way to punch some color onto your ensemble.

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.

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.
