Blog_image_perforated

Need a way out of that cold winter slump? We’ve got the ultimate transition pieces to take you straight from winter to spring with ease: trendy and fun perforated cutout shoes.
1. Antonio Melani Peri Casual Flats  – Nothing says spring style like a cute cutout flat in a range of pretty pastels. Not only could you choose the Peri flats in cool hues like Lemon Freeze and Tomato Puree, you can also find an impeccable fit in the classic neutral Marine Navy. Along with the perforated cutouts, the allover delicate jewel details transform these classic flats into a look more than ready to jumpstart springtime.
2. Jessica Simpson Chinah Sandals – The perfect neutral heel – available in Bermuda Pink, Black, and Light Luggage Brown – to kick start the first days of warm weather. The intricate perforated details, in fun triangle and circle shapes, create an elevated on trend look. A slight hidden platform offers additional comfort without sacrificing your style for a night on the town!
3. DV by Dolce Vita Moe Oxfords – Oxfords have an effortless and classic look, but the perforations on the Moe oxfords create a whole new presence. They’re the ultimate casual choice for any fashionista needing a break from her heels, while still putting a little prep in her step.
4. Vince Camuto Okeli Dress Sandals – The Okeli dress sandals are exactly what’s predicted as the next big thing this year. If you’re looking for a new look after a long, cold winter, pair these bronze beauties with your first spring cocktail dress. These dress sandals really have it all: the distinctive three separate straps, the metallic shine, and, of course, those fabulous perforated cutouts.
5. Vince Camuto Kalista Mesh Booties – This elegant bootie is a flawless transition shoe between seasons. Pair the Kalista booties with tights to give the cutouts the opportunity to stand out. For the start of spring, these same unique cutouts will be the essential tool in facing the warmer temperatures while still giving you the perfect amount of coverage.
6. DV by Dolce Vita Edlyn Penny Loafers – Penny loafers are the key to effortlessly mixing both feminine and masculine elements, and the Edlyn loafers are no different. These cutouts add the perfect touch to this classic style. This loafer is available in the neutral Bone and the bold, colorblocked Coral.

Trend Report: Make a Splash with Nautical Stripes

The latest wave-making trend is here: nautical stripes!

Bold horizontal stripes — typically in red, white, and navy hues — create a look that’s ready to set sail.  Details like rope accents and hardware grommets can be added to emphasize the sea-worthy vibe.

Here’s how to style this trend!

monica_blog_1

Start with the basics.  Dresses are ideal for wearing stylized prints — they let you show off as much of the trend as you like.  (They serve as a great base for layering, too!)  A fit-and-flare dress is feminine and flattering while a sweater dress keeps you warm on breezy boating trips.

Get the look: Cremieux Faye Fit-and-Flare Dress.  BCBGMAXAZRIA Ethel Sweater Dress.

Layers: friend or foe?  Be careful when adding layers to nautical stripes — too much going on in one outfit can be overwhelming.  A tonal jacket is ideal, and if you’re feeling a little bold you can even don one with subtle jacquard.  Goldtone buttons add even more nautical details (and they pop nicely against darker hues like navy).

Get the look: Cremieux Betsi Double-Breasted Jacket.

The perfect shoes.  We’re all about nude and neutral — earthy tones stand out against rich hues.  A pump or wedge the same shade as your skintone gives the illusion of longer legs, which is important if you’re wearing horizontal stripes that can make your body look wider (a skinny belt helps here — read on for accessorizing tips).

Get the look: Jessica Simpson Claude d’Orsay Pumps.  BCBGeneration Torrez Wedges.

Accessorize, accessorize!  Gold adds brilliant shine to these stripes, but don’t add it automatically — if your dress has silvertone grommets, pick jewelry to match that instead.  Any belt you choose should be skinny so it doesn’t clash with the stripes.

Get the look: Goldtone bracelets.  Skinny belts.

d’Orsay Pumps: Word of the Week

Sometimes fashion gives us happy coincidences. An especially brilliant stroke: d’Orsay shoes share their name with the d’Orsay museum in Paris. Unlike the museum’s impressionist masterpieces, d’Orsay pumps are wearable works of art.

Showcase the flattering style with an evening-out LBD or polished pencil skirt. The sultry silhouette sculpts your legs to create a longer, leaner look. The delicate design, available in neutral, bright or shimmering palettes, also blends well with your special occasion looks.
