The Dansko "Thea" Clogs

A lot of shoe trends tend to put a premium on style while neglecting to factor in comfort. Well, when it comes to the timeless yet totally on-trend clog, there’s no need to sacrifice comfort for style thanks to the darling “Thea” clog by Dansko.

We love this fresh update on the basic clog with the addition of a moisture-wicking cushioned footbed. That’s right! No more having to pass up wooden clogs.

Inspired By: Boho Moto

Today’s street style inspiration perfectly balances elements of boho and moto-chic style while attaining that effortlessly wearable look. With winter still lingering on in most of the country, it’s a great way to pull in your favorite boho tops for spring a little early, just by adding on a few pieces.

A great way to toughen up a bohemian-inspired look is by simply adding a nice dose of leather. First, top off an airy peasant top or sheer tunic with a sleek leather moto jacket. Pair with skinny black jeans and slip on a pair of black ankle boots to take the look from hippie to full-on hottie! Finish it off with essential accessories like a wide-brim hat (to pull from that boho vibe), a cozy scarf for warmth and leather gloves for braving the last few days of winter.

For Her:

Boyfriend Jeans

featured style: Levi’s® Women’s 501 Customized Jeans

+

Sky-High Heels

featured style: Nine West Tatiana Pumps

Pairing relaxed-fit denim with dressier heels adds up to such an effortlessly chic look for both day and night. We particularly love oversized boyfriend jeans paired with super sexy pumps. It just elevates the look and keeps the jeans from looking frumpy.

 

Basic Tees

featured style: Splendid Vintage Whisper V-Neck Tee

+

Skirts

featured style: kensie Ponte Skirt

The unsung hero of our closets, basic tees are surprisingly versatile for a lot of different occasions. To dress up a simple cotton t-shirt, pair it with a knee-length skirt for the office, and a sparkly mini skirt for a night out. You can even let a printed or sequined skirt shine by pairing it with a very basic tee. It’s all about striking that perfect balance of laidback and feminine.

 

Sweatshirts/Pullover

featured style: Free People In A Hurry Hoodie

+

Leggings

featured style: HUE Floral Gleam Denim Skimmer Legging

Comfy up top, party in the bottom. That’s sort of the vibe this combo achieves with a mix of relaxed and dressy all in one easy-to-wear outfit. Take your oversized grey sweaters and sweatshirts up a notch with printed or textured leggings. The great part is, you can really go all out with the leggings here since the sweater is the more subdued element in this equation. Who says a sweatshirt has to be frumpy? Not with this killer combo!
