Fashion Month lies far behind us, and we are all dosed up on inspiration, so it’s time to rethink our wardrobe and start strategizing on the spring-summer pieces we ALL NEED! Let’s start at the bottom with – and work our way up – our most favourite part: shoes!
Without any doubt, pointy footwear is STILL HOT. No show this Fashion Month suggest we need to divert away from this trend, it’s gave us more options such as the never-really-been-away-but-love-to-call-it-comeback kitten heel. Personally I can relate both of the above, and have no objection whatsoever in wearing either of those two, but this might not be the case for you. Therefore I teamed up with CHARLES & KEITH – the Singapore born, internationally raised footwear brand – and to make your life easier we created the “Shoe must-have” list for this Spring!
So the two trends we focussed on are the low heel – or kitten heel – and the ever so stylish pointy nose. Both trends I adore, but as I mentioned, maybe not – yet – your cup of tea, and for that I’m showing you how to wear these trends.
We were lucky to have had a few warm days in New York already, so the looks I’m wearing are actual spring appropriate looks, and will definitely help you to dress from day-to-night, office to dinner, and drinks to dance party!
No matter if you are the minimalist, or the girl who loves to wear colour, you will be 100% ready for spring investing in these shoes!
For my first look I’m wearing CHARLES & KEITHsunglasses, bag, and of course, shoes. I paired it with a Balenciaga oversized shirt, and a Designer’s Remix skirt. To me, this is the ultimate happy summer look for both city or country life!
The second look is way more urban, and great for colder summer days, or early summer mornings, when a cold breeze rules over before the sun warms it up. I’m wearing CHARLES & KEITHslingback heels in the perfect nude, which goes great with an all-denim look (the jacket is Balenciaga, jeans Gucci, and sunglasses Celine).
For the last look I channeled my inner-minimalist. I’m usually not really minimal in my looks and styling, but for these shoes, and the super sophisticated design of the bag, I felt I had to. Here’s where CHARLES & KEITH does best, their styles are so easy to combine, and make even the most simple looks so much more interesting. I’m wearing CHARLES & KEITHkitten heels, and bag, with an oversized mens trousers from Suit Supply, with a Tomas Maier shirt, and Celine sunglasses.
