Style your Sneaks

September 2, 2014

Ready for this seasons hottest footwear?  Then I have two words for you…leather sneakers!  These are every cool girl’s must have shoe this fall to wear with everything from jeans to playful dresses.  Sneakers are the perfect shoes as we transition into fall. I find they are a much more practical choice for everyday wear over a pair of heels.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a great pair of heels just as much as the next girl, but I find it hard to actually wear them on a day to day basis. I love the fact though that getting a pair made of leather dresses them up so that they can work in place of a heel or wedge. I know these shoes may seem out of your comfort zone and not something you think you would wear, but trust me once you see them styled you will fall in love with them too!  I have styled these sneakers four different ways to show you their versatility.  But first let me talk about this particular pair of shoes.  They are called the Seta Sneaker by Rebecca Minkoff and may I say she has outdone herself with them.  Made of soft gray leather and perfectly adorned with gold studs and zipper detailing, these are amazing sneakers.  These shoes will quickly become your go to off duty look.

This first look is very laid back and edgy, the ultimate cool girl outfit.  I paired the sneakers with black distressed JBrands, a red plaid flannel top by Elizabeth and James with feminine embellishments, and a great black satchel by Nanette Lepore.  This is an outfit I could literally wear all day, everyday.

For the second look I thought I would go for something more polished by wearing them with a cute metallic leopard print sweater by Diane Von Furstenburg and a dark wash JBrand skinny jean.  Adding a fun statement bib necklace like this one by Megan Park makes this look more glam.

Who says you can’t wear sneakers with dresses?  Not us that’s for sure! I absolutely adore these comfy sneakers with the Zoa Dropped Shoulder Dress in tye dye and the effortless vibe it exudes.  This is an ultimate cool girl look with the big slouchy bag and Kendra Scott arrowhead earrings.  When temperatures begin to fall you can throw on a leather jacket over this to carry you on into fall weather.

The balance between feminine and masculine in this outfit is on point.  I love the flirty silhouette of  this Nicole Miller dress mixed with the tough, studded leather sneakers.  Adding accessories like a wide brimmed hat and fun bib necklace only amp up this outfit’s cool factor.

Wild Thing

It all about animal prints today on the blog!  Leopard is one of my all time favorite animal prints and is so on trend this fall.  I love how people are calling Leopard the new black and treating it as if it were a neutral color.  It truly is a versatile print that can be worn pretty much with anything so it is definitely a timeless print.

A great silk leopard print blouse is a must have in everyone’s closet.   I decided to dress this blouse up with a silk pleated maxi skirt by Malene Birger and adding a Dannijo necklace.  This is a stunning evening outfit that will certainly set you apart from the crowd.  The great thing about this Equipment blouse is that you can wear this dressed up or down with a pair of jeans and boots.

I love the mod style of this Rachel Zoe dress and the leopard accent at the hem.  It is such a simple, but striking look that can be worn so many ways.  I styled it here with heels and a fabulous clutch by Nanette Lepore, but I can also see this dress with an elegant coat and boots.  This is a dress you will reach for over and over again for years to come.

I love the fun, flirty feel of this outfit!   This Diane Von Furstenburg sweater pairs perfectly with the BCBG aline skirt and by Malene Birger boots and hat.   The gray metallic leopard print is different from what you normally see and the conservative cut of the sweater make this a timeless piece.  I previously styled this sweater with jeans and sneakers so you can see the versatility of this piece.

A leopard coat is a must have for any chic lady!  It transforms a simple black dress into a fabulous date night look.  This La Prestic Ouiston coat is made from vintage scarves and pairs so nicely with this black BCBG dress and Megan Park necklace.  I finished the outfit with this fur Raoul clutch and strappy heels.
