Fresh Picks: Back to Black

It seems like every season there’s always some color in the vast spectrum being touted as “the new black”. Well, for you purists out there, there’s just no substitute to true, reliable black. When it comes to footwear, black is a perennial staple that should be in every woman’s closet, and this fall is certainly no exception.

Behold, just a little sample of some of our favorite black shoes for work, weekend, date night…whenever!

Fresh Picks: Cork Sandals

It’s no secret that we love our sandals for spring, but there’s a certain type of sandal that has captured our style interest lately: the cork sandal. They're perfectly casual and laid back for all those summer dresses, shorts and jeans. 

There are tons of really gorgeous iterations of this trend; we couldn’t possibly pick just one!

Top 5 Timeless Fall Essentials

I’m a firm believer that a good fall wardrobe needs a solid foundation. These timeless pieces become the building blocks for the rest of your outfits season after season.  Having go-to staples that defy fads and trends is the key to having a truly versatile wardrobe.

Here are my top 5 fall essentials that are worthy of investing in:

CLASSIC COATS:

You can’t go wrong with a classic belted trench coat and a tailored peacoat. They’re both timeless and instantly pull together your entire look.

BLACK ANKLE BOOTS:

The equivalent to a little black dress in the footwear department, black ankle boots are a must-have for every woman.

COZY SCARVES:

Scarves are a great way to add color, pattern and/or texture to any outfit. I like to stock up in them to change up outfits throughout the season.

STRUCTURED HANDBAGS:

A structured bag adds a classic, ladylike feel to even casual ensembles!

DARK WASH JEANS:

Jeans are an obvious staple all year round, but when done in a clean dark wash, it gives any outfit a more polished, pulled-together appearance. Invest in great-fitting dark wash jeans in a variety of cuts like bootcut, skinny and flare.

We’ve all heard of the LBD, the little black dress. But equally as important is the LBB…the little black boot! Black ankle boots are the footwear equivalent of that trusty little black dress, the one that never ceases to amaze you with its versatility and chic, timeless appeal.

Here are just some of our current faves:

1. Via Spiga Peak: Svelte and totally chic, these pointed-toe boots are bound to be your next go-to.

2. Via Spiga Abbot: The hefty platform on these stunning ankle boots is equal parts modern and retro.

3. Joan & David Yvonna: Bold yet refined at the same time, these boots are an easy way to add height. Rock these with a pair of skinny jeans or a lovely maxi skirt!

4. Daniblack Amos: Can’t decide between pebbled or suede leather? Why not both? The pointed toe of these wedge boots are spot-on cool!

5. Kork Ease Maya: This lace-up boot adds a certain dose of toughness to any ensemble.

6. Matt Bernson Mesa: A sleek stacked heel coupled with a chukka-inspired design adds up to something impeccably cool.

Even though we’re seeing a comeback of shorter heels and kitten heels, there’s still a special place in our hearts for the leg-slimming, leg-lengthening brilliance of sky-high platform wedges. For those of us who are on the shorter side, or those who just refuse to be seen in flats (you ladies know who you are!),  it’s  comforting to know that this season still boasts quite an impressive crop of height-amplifying platform shoes for us to lust over.

Here are a few of our must-haves for the summer:

Steve Madden Wissper: This nude-colored sling-back platform really lengthens the legs!

Via Spiga Eve: With a flair for the ‘70s, this stunning platform really makes a fresh statement. It’s definitely better than anything Marcia Brady could ever dream of!

Nine West Bottos: There’s a lot to love about the versatility of this casual wedge. Wear it with anything and everything!

Pelle Moda Jamba: The gladiator-like straps coupled with the cork and espadrille combo make this one fabulous wedge sandal!

MICHAEL Michael Kors Juniper Espadrille: The braided strap over a nice, tall espadrille wedge gives this such a boho flair.
