To Show or Not To Show?

To show or not to show, that is the question. What the heck are you talking about, you may say. Well, we are talking about your socks of course! The trend these days is to show some skin, some ankle skin to be exact.  We know that this is fine in milder climates, but some of you live in areas that are just plain frigid. So we think you can show some cool socks too.  Here are some examples of how we would wear our shoes from the shop with or “without” hosiery.

 

First up the ever popular ankle boot. Everybody has a pair, right? We would wear these P. Monjo boots with no-show-socks if we were wearing a midi length dress or skirt. With a pair of jeans, we would flash these fancy crane crews.

 

We love a good oxford around here! We think it’s perfectly acceptable to pretend we are wearing no socks as well as to show off some really cute designed ones too.

 

 

Tall boots. Totally okay to not show your socks obviously, but we also think it’s super cute when they peek out the cuff too.

 

These are just a few samples of what we have at re-souL. To see more of our shoe and sock collections, visit us in Ballard or shop on-line at resoul.com.

 

 

4 Fresh Styles for Fall

We know that most of the country (including us in the PNW) is not experiencing the cooler weather that Autumn brings as of yet. But my friends, it will come sooner or later. So why not embrace the newness of the fashion fall season right now, right?

P. Monjo "P-961" Chelsea boot for Women

A classic Chelsea boot will be a must have for this season. We particularly love this style from P.Monjo. We like the rich russet brown color. A nice alternative to classic black.

Coclico Trixie Clog Bootie in Navy/Grey

We love clogs. When Coclico marries an ankle boot and a clog together, they create magic! This Coclico “Trixie” boot is the perfect baby don’t you think?

Fiorentini Baker Toky Buckle Wrap Boots

Our perennial favorite boot factory, Fiorentini and Baker has a new style for this Fall called the “Toky”. It is the perfect wrap-up ankle boot. Wear these all winter long with your favorite skinnies, leggings, and dresses.

MOMA "76601" Oxford in Brown /Metallic

Oxfords are always a tried and true shoe for us here at re-souL. MOMA has designed the perfect saddle shoe for the fall season. We love the oiled suede against the bronze metallic leather. Unique, yet very versatile.

 

What are you looking forward to wearing when the weather changes? Have a great weekend!

 

WTWW: 3 Ways to Wear Ankle Boots

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we focus on ankle boots.
