Details. Dressing For the In-Between

 

If you are anything like me, then you truly enjoy the transitional period that comes between the sweltering summer months and fall. The temperature cools at night, yet the days are still filled with sunshine and warmth. For a style maven, this time also provides a unique opportunity to wear pieces from both seasons.

Yellow Toes. Some Serious Slingback

Zara Yellow Flats

It’s a new season, which means there is a new excuse to be completely enamored with a new trend in the footwear department.

Take one step forward and enter the slingback into the conversation.

With modern styling, and interesting colors and adornments, this shoe is not reserved solely for older style mavens anymore. Dior featured a bow version of the slingback in its spring show and Moschino made a statement with the an electric red, stiletto version they debuted in their spring offering. Each proving that a pair of slingback shoes can be a fresh statement for any outfit.

Wear your own set of slingbacks as a comfortable pair of flats, or add another staple to your collection of heels with the elevated versions. Either way, the slingback shoe is THE piece of footwear to own this season.

WIW. Forecastle Festival Style

 

 

This new section of my blog, dutifully titled What I Wore will simply highlight a look I recently wore that I deemed worthy enough to share on The Chic Street.

There will be no briefing on the latest trend, or detailed account of why I styled the ensemble in such a manner (unless I am feeling particularly frisky that day).

Keeping it simple.

My Style. Enamored with Embroidery

 

There are times when a trend is simply so beautiful that I happily embrace it without a second thought. However, sometimes my adoration for a trend reaches such a fervor, and I grab onto it so tightly that within a few, short weeks my closet is bursting at the seams with it.

(Cue the chorus from my favorite Cardigans’ track, Love Fool: Love me, love me. Say that you love me.)

Details. Give Me All the Buttons

 

Mango Lace Top \ Madewell Button Denim (similar here)

It should come as no surprise that denim regularly gets a makeover. I still usually gravitate towards a simple, cropped skinny jean, but I have to admit that I am starting to have a wandering eye.

What has caught my attention?

Button-front denim.

Buttons can make a real statement on a pair of jeans, denim skirt or even a jean jumper. Keep the styling simple by pairing it with a basic tee, or add this season’s most sought after and versatile textile: lace. Just keep in mind that with details like this though, no one will be looking at your topper.

Shoulder Play. What Comes Next?

 

Yes, my style mavens, the off-the-shoulder trend is played out officially over.

However, I am not here to tell you to be a slave to fashion and switch your closet out every time a new trend emerges or dissolves. Instead, I am simply here to make you aware of the various ways one can show off their shoulders without having to wear the same strapless silhouette this season.
