Early Fall Arrivals: Chelsea Boots 3 Ways

Hello, it’s been a while since we posted anything on the blog. We have been receiving a few early Fall arrivals. So in the spirit of getting ready for the change of seasons, we thought we would show you how we would wear our favorite boot, the Chelsea Boot! A classic style that can be worn with virtually everything. Versatile and comfortable!

A big trend for this season is animal prints. These Officine Creative boots would look great with a pair of kick flare jeans and a long cheetah/leopard print vest.

Another fun Fall trend is mixing plaids and checks together. These Fiorentini and Baker boots are perfect for this casual look. Wear them with your favorite denim and plaid shirt.

A leather dress is a must for the dressier side of creative work attire. Wear these fancy MOMA boots with tights and an oversized sweater to top off the look.

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: How to Wear Slides

Hi there! Warmer weather this week has us craving for the season’s “it” shoe style, the slide! For today’s “what to wear Wednesday”, we are going to show you how to wear different¬†types of slides for different occasions.

wtww_officine_creative_slides_blackLet’s face it, we love our denim, don’t we? This easy black slide from Officine Creative works great with skinny jeans. It covers most of the foot, so it is appropriate enough for casual work environments or your days off when strolling around town. They definitely have that laid back cool look.

We love these low heel, pale pink suede beauties from Coclico. Wear them with some wide leg crop pants to add a modern flare to your outfit. The neutral soft color would work well with lightweight cotton or linen pants too. Also works well with most pastel colors.

wtww_p.monjo_black_slidesFor a more sophisticated look, wear these chunky heel slides by P. Monjo with your favorite linen frock. These compliment flowy midi lengths of summer dresses or skirts. Easy, breezy, yet polished and put together.

So, what do you think? Ready to try wearing a slide? View all slides at re-souL here. Thanks for stopping by! ~ team re-souL

WTWW: Top 3 Men’s Shoe Trends

Each Wednesday we‚Äôll answer the on-going question: ‚ÄúWhat do I wear with these?‚Ä̬† It‚Äôs a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we are helping out the guys.¬†

WTWW: Satorisan Benirras mid top leather casual

Desert boots or chukka boots have been trending for several seasons, so much so that we consider them a classic style. We like this one from Satorisan, meant to be worn without socks and designed with side vents to keep your feet cool. The leather sock liner and foam rubber sole mold to your feet making them super comfortable. Wear these with your chinos and a short sleeve woven shirt for a casual Friday at work.

 

WTWW: Officine Creative Anatomia 43 Woven Oxford

A smart update to your work shoe collection is a woven oxford. Perfect for summer weather to be worn with or without socks. We like this laceless style from Officine Creative. The handwoven leather is rich in color and texture. We would pair these with jeans and a linen sport coat and forget the laces and the socks, or not.

 

WTWW: re-souL Sam woven flip flop

Okay guys, time to up your game when it comes to sandals. Ditch the thongs¬†(at least once in awhile) for a comfortable leather slide style. Wear them with a pair of Bermuda¬†shorts and a long sleeve linen shirt and you won’t get funny looks the next time you frequent that trendy restaurant wearing your rubber flip-flops. Instead you’ll be admired for your casual laid-back look.

Thanks for stopping by, we hope you have a great rest of your week! To view more styles for guys visit us at resoul.com.
