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.

How to Style our Tilda Clog

We in the Pacific Northwest have always liked our clogs. It is an all-season item that can be worn in so many ways, pants, skirts, dresses, etc. With the forecast calling for warmer days this September, we thought we would show you how to style our re-souL “Tilda” clog this season.

Wide Leg Trousers + re-souL clogs
Wide leg trousers are all the rage this season. We like to wear clogs with these pants because they balance out the look of the flared leg. You can still look professional wearing clogs if you keep your pieces tailored and when the weather becomes a bit cooler, you could add a blazer to to ward off the chill.

Men’s Fall Essentials: The Lace-Up Boot

Men's Fall Essentials: The Lace-Up Boot

This Fall there are plenty of ¬†men’s trends that are worth a look, but if we were to pick one shoe to add to a gentleman’s closet, it would have to be the lace-up boot. ¬†A timeless staple that can be dressed up or down, this silhouette is a must-have for any guy’s wardrobe. ¬†We have paired them with 3 different key menswear looks to show the versatility of this classic style.

1. ¬†The Camel Overcoat – Sharp and versatile, a classic camel coat is timeless. What better way to accessorize your coat than with a pair of Wolverine “Addison” boots. ¬†The cognac brown color is rich and it can make a wool suit look a little bit more relaxed.

2. The Quilted Jacket – Puffer coats have been on the scene for a few seasons, but its sleeker cousin is the right jacket to wear for those crisp fall days.¬†¬†Throw it over your favorite heavy sweater or blazer for extra warmth and ¬†wear it with your favorite jeans. To finish the look we like the “Bolter” boot by Bed Stu, an urban work boot that’s big on style and very practical.

3. Gray on Gray Layering РA fresher way of layering than wearing all black, the gray on gray color scheme works well because of the different textures and patterns. Notice the gray herringbone tweed over the gray melange sport coat and fleece shirt? Of course to finish this look you need a pair of boots from MOMA. This boot is rugged and polished at the same time and subtle antiquing of the leather gives them timeless style.

So what are you guys thinking? Ready to move away from zippers yet?

Fall Trend Essential: The Oxford

oxfords

Over the next few weeks we will be posting fall trends essentials for this season. ¬†Today we start with the oxford. ¬†An oxford, derby or brogue as some people call it, is basically a lace-up shoe with a low heel. Oxfords have been around for oh, I don’t know, a couple of centuries. They are ¬†having a bit of resurgence as of late and they are not just for the men. ¬†So how do you wear an oxford without looking like a frump? Here are some looks that we like. Borrowed from the boys but with a feminine twist.

Inspiration 1:  For work,  try pairing a slightly higher heel with a tailored blouse and cigarette trousers for a more polished casual look.

Inspiration 2: If you are a minimalist, a simple silk top and wool pants can be updated with a wingtip style.

Inspiration 3: Feeling artsy? How about pairing a bold color with crew socks and a dress? Also  would look great with tights, of course.

Inspiration 4: Loving the oxford look but can’t deal with the laces? A mock oxford with jeans looks more casually cool than a pair of sneaks.

So what do you think? Ready to give oxfords a try?
