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!

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Fashion Illustration

On a recent buying trip to Milan, I stopped at the Triennale di Milano and took in an exhibition called the “The New Vocabulary of Italian Fashion”. (If you would like to see what this show was about, click here.) I was inspired by the Italian fashion illustrations on display. Which of course led me to go find these artists and see what other things they might be doing. Here are three that I loved the most from the exhibit and samples of their other work.

Shoe Mood: Bordeaux, Green & Pewter

With the winter months around the corner, and our wardrobes looking very neutral, (not that there is anything wrong with that of course!) we were craving some deep rich colors in our closet. When putting together the fall buy, we didn’t want to limit ourselves to the varietal shades of black and grey.

Shoe Mood: Bordeaux re-souL flats

So with this in mind, we added some fall colors to our very own re-souL collection. Shades of burgundy, green, blue and a little bit of shine with neutrals of pewter and bronze.

Shoe Mood: Pewter re-souL loafers

The great thing about all of these hues and metallics is they go very well with all of those neutrals in your wardrobe! A punch of color to your basic black and grey.

Shoe Mood: Green re-souL oxfords

 

So what do you think? Think you could break away from your basic black shoe for a new color or metallic instead?

WTWW: Beek “Robin” Slides

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. 

 

What to Wear with the Beek "Robin" slide

This week we feature the Beek “Robin” slide. A casual but chic alternative to the flip-flop. Wear these slides with a simple dress, culottes and a crop tank, or a crisp white shirt and patterned shorts. Complete your look with a clutch bag and a statement necklace. You will look put together and polished, yet remain cool in the heat of the summer months ahead.
