Searching for the Perfect Black Flat?

the re-souL collection: Black Flats

“I’m searching for the perfect black flat” is a phrase we hear often at re-souL. A shoe that does it all. A shoe that can transition seamlessly from day to night. We believe all of the LBF’s (little black flats) shown above can do just that. Dramatic and flattering, yet oh so versatile. For a more dressed up feel go for the pointed toe “Muriel“, “Margot” or “Mia” and for a more casual look, the “Bret” oxford or the “Nova” basic flat would do the trick.

Spring Trend: Monochrome

One of the biggest spring trends this season is the idea of a monochrome wardrobe. Having an edited down wardrobe makes it way easier to get dressed in the morning. We all lead busy lives and having a “uniform” of sorts in your closet makes it one less thing to worry about when getting dressed for the day.

This by all means doesn’t mean boring. You can still play with pattern and add accessories to add some flair to your look. Black, white, cream and shades of grey look great on most, so having shoes that coordinate with your minimal palette is essential.

Spring is fickle, it can feel like all four seasons in a day. Therefore, layering is the key to helping get through those months of manic weather. Same goes for these oxfords. Wear them with socks to ward off the chill, wear them without when the sun is shining brightly.

5 reasons to visit re-souL

re-souL shop window

Hello!

We have so much to tell you! It’s already November and we’ve been so busy getting ready for the holiday season, we thought we should catch you up!

Maybe you have noticed our new look? We recently launched a new website that is better suited to your mobile life. We have designed a website that is clean, inviting, and still easy to navigate. The New Arrivals section is now on the homepage and updates in real time, so you won’t miss out on your favorite things.

Change is never easy, but often inevitable. We thought it was time for a new logo, one that was more cohesive with our brand. Our new shop logo is a better representation of the high quality products that you’ve known to expect from re-souL. Feel free to stop by and have a look, tell us what you think!

We hope to see you during the holiday season. Thanks again for being a part of our re-souL community.

XOXO,
Maggie, Legh, Nova, Margaret & Katie

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?

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.
