Summer gets Merrier with Moccasins

Hello happy feet! I am back with some amazing styling ideas for your feet this summer. I know most of you’ll would go back to you great grandfather’s era on hearing the word ‘moccasins’ or for that matter ‘loafers’. But let me make one thing clear, Moccasins are top-hot picks to keep your feet cool this season.

Pretty moccasins come in several varieties of colors, cuts, shapes and embellishments. Biggest advantage that it has over all other kind of shoes is its ability to offer extra-ordinary level of comfort to your feet. Apart from this, they are the most wearable summer picks that would go well with almost anything. When I say anything, I mean anything.

Let’s have a quick look at ways in which these moccasins can come to your rescue in this hot sultry weather.

Get Naughty With Neon

Get Naughty With Neon

Neon – Apparently, known as the electrifying trend of 80’s.  It can be loud and fun to wear though it can be little intimidating as well, especially when you are not open to experimenting with colours and trends.  Having said, every closet needs a splash of neon colour.  Hop on the neon bandwagon to get you started for the summer months. Whether it is your favourite jeans and tees or pleated skirts and blazers, there’s a light and bright option you’ll most likely adore!  Pay homage to this 80’s trend with the modern updates happening on the runways! On a promising note, if you don’t want to rock hot pink jeans or those daunting neon shoes, some neon jewellery is a fun way to get in trend without going overboard.  Adopt these old trends for a new ‘you’.  Get naughty with neon and let us know if its rad or bad!

Colour Me Neon

Ditch those neutral hues and corals for a bright neon dress/skirt to pull together a new season outfit.  Pair a neon skirt with a white tank top or any blouse in lighter shade and neutral hues.  Colour block dresses in sherbet-neon colours is ideal for any date you have planned this summer.  After all, who says you have to only wear one neon hue in each ensemble?  Dress down the outfit with minimal accessories and nude pumps!

Neon Jewellery

Sometimes, it is those little things that can make an outfit stand out. Neon jewellery is preferred on simple outfits. It’s a good idea to wear solids instead of patterns. You don’t want your jewellery competing with your neon skirt, thereby causing a neon clash. Having said, colour blocking is cool. You can pair your neon jewellery with bold blue earrings, or hot pink bangles with lime green watches. Try to get creative and try balancing things out to push yourself away from routine. Do not attempt to mix more than three colours at a time !

Neon Footwear

Neon soles are a good way to introduce your feet to the neon trend without the commitment.  Flats and pumps in neon add a dose of spice to your wardrobe.  From hot pink to neon green, slip into a pair of glary flats to make season brighter.  Embellished footwear spruce up the look few notches higher.  Wear them to a club or house party with a mini dress and tights, your jeans for that matter!

Heels Can Heal, Style Them Right

Heels Can Heal, Style Them Right

“A girl can never have enough shoes.”

Amen!! Among that beautiful elaborate collection of shoes on the rack, heels form an essential part. Heels remain the most important footwear on the fashion scene and hence heel style – how you style with your heels – is something every girl should be aware of. The first question to ask would be – How high is your heel? So, if I may add some useful “heel gyan” here, a heel less than 2.5 inches is considered as a low-heel, while mid-heels can be anywhere between 2.5 and 3.5 inches, and anything over that is a high-heel. Choose one that you are most comfortable walking in and make sure you can do it in style.

There are numerous types of heels out there. Now where do we begin? One post definitely doesn’t seem sufficient. So with this heel style guide, let me try to put together five of the most popular types of heels and the right outfit to go with them.

Pumps

You can never have enough number of classic pumps. Also called as court shoes in some parts of the world, it is traditionally a closed toe and a low cut front with mid to high heels that are wider than stilettos. Peep-toe is another variation of the pumps when you want to show off the color on toenails!! Have one in any colour and your closet is complete.

What to wear

Classic black or brown pumps can be worn for the office wear like a crisp suit while brightly coloured pumps add sparkle to retro party dresses.

Stilettos

The highest of the heels there is, walking in this slender pencil-thin, sky high heels is a skill no less. They say- “Strong women wear pain like they do stilettos.” Stilettos come in all styles – closed toe, strappy, slingbacks or ankle strap. But, keep a little care and avoid them if you are going to be wearing them for long hours.

What to wear

Stilettos work best on any attire, especially those that can already help in elongating your leg. Show off those lassy legs with casual jeans, formal trousers, pencil skirts or cute party wear dresses.

Wedges

Click here to buy wedges!

Wedges are shoes with solid heels running from sole to the heel. They can either be wedge heels or wedge sandals. They are a lot more comfortable than other heels because they are sturdy and offer more arch support. Wedges come is all sizes – low, mid or high heels!!

What to wear

Wedges work better on casual wear. Team them with free flowing skirts, shorts, wide jeans/pants or casual summer dresses. Avoid wearing them with tight fitting clothing as wedges tend to look clunky and may overwhelm your outfit. 

Platform heels

Platform heels are called so because of the thick sole sitting under the front part of the foot. Again, these are definitely comfortable than stilettos because the height difference between the sole and the heel is not drastic. Definitely helps girls who are bit on the shorter side in elevating their height or for girls with shorter legs.

What to wear

More often than not, you may not want to expose much of the extra sole that is adding height, and so platform heels work well with palazzos or wide pants. Also, you can try them on with maxi skirts and evening gowns.

Kitten heels

As cute as their name sounds, kitten heels are low slender heels with a slight inward curve. They are both comfortable and fashionable. Kitten heels work best when you don’t need the extra height while still keeping you on your toes!!

What to wear

Kitten heels work pretty much on any kind of wear – formal or casual. They look best when worn with slick tapering trousers or skinny jeans.

Marilyn Monroe once famously said – “Give a girl the right kind of shoes and she’ll conquer the world.”  So make sure you wear the right heel with the right outfit. We are sure this ultimate heel style guide will help in raising the pretty woman in you. All you now need to do is go and pick your favourite heel from here.
