Trend Alert | The “Sporty” Look with Sneakers

Sneakers are no longer reserved for the gym. Comfy athletic footwear is now perfectly acceptable to wear with this season, and can even comprise a modernly cool going out outfit. Sports style is very relevant and many designers include athletic shoes in their collections. Trendy sneakers and gym shoes have become an outfit’s accessory. This season you can find sneakers and gym shoes for every taste, from classic and retro patterns to bold and unusual models.

According to the general fashion trends, neon and metallic colors are hot trends of women’s sneakers and gym shoes of the season. Some designers have even combined two trends in one model.

I currently love my neon Reeboks paired with jeans and a tee as I feel it adds flavor without even trying! And to top it off, you can really give your feet a break from heels while still looking fabulously fashionable!

Who said Comfort can’t meet style!

Are you ready to experience being comfortable and chic at the same time?

As Spring slowly settles in and the sun graces us with its beams, we slowly ditch our ankle boots & winter shoes for more summer’ish soles. And as every season has it, 2013 Spring/Summer will too bring us a new fashion trend. The Loafers, ladies! From the catwalk to the streets and to the posh feet of celebs these  boy’ish flat pumps are making us forget the hot heels and channel our Tom-boy personas.

I have to say I was a little iffy about this new trend at first and wondered if I would get into it or simply allow it to pass me by. Today, I do admit, I have been seduced! Yes they are a bit masculine but I love that, as I love the way they can easily blend and mix with so many various looks.

Loafers can easily top off any outfit, whether you’re going for a night out, or just running to the grocery store, this season’s loafers have all the glam and chicness that make a perfect friendship to any look. This trend puts an edgy spin on the classic loafer style; it reinvented the lackluster loafer into something that’s not just for Grandpa anymore; but for today’s daring fashionistas. They are super comfortable, and contrary to belief they look amazing with feminine clothes. It gives you that boho-chicvibe. You’ll find the new loafer in prints, glitter, embellishment, studs, bright colors, and with tassels. You will need to take my advice and seriously own one this season!

Super Trendy | Wedge Sneakers

I have been seeing wedge sneakers on almost every girl who walks me by (myself included), and I had to start my first blog after a long break to write about this current must have!

So how did the once cool and comfortable pair of shoes become the IT thing in town? You can give thanks to the queen of casual cool, Isabel Marant, who re-invented a whole new meaning with her amped-up wedge sneakers, guaranteeing us women to experience the best of both worlds this season! They were sold out instantly after she showed them for spring, and luckily they’re back in stock. However, you can rest assured as almost every brand you might come across has designed a wedge sneaker to add-on to its winter collection. So if Isabel Marant is a little too steep, you are guaranteed a look-alike somewhere else!

ISABEL MARANT — 760$

ASH —  $225

TOPSHOP — $96

Jeffrey Campbell — $206

ASOS — $74.57

NIKE — $130

See By Chloe — $375

Marc by Marc Jacobs — $320

Love at first sight!

There is nothing much to say here, other than the outfit is perfectly gorgeous.

1- The DRESS: Love the color, Knitwear is always trendy, comfortable, and this one is also chic! (Forget about the fact that she has legs to die for – Moving on)

2- BOOT: Oh love at first sight! I NEEEED those boots, the color is gorgeous and I love the details. These boots can be worn with just about any outfit (seriously, ANY outfit)

3- BAG: Well I always am a sucker for big bags, but this one ticks all the right boxes for me. Maybe if I saw it alone, as in, not part of this outfit, I would think twice about it, but this look … Id need to get the bag as well. Plus, the grayish, rust like effect, is gorgeous (and I don’t even like gray as a color much!)

I know we are creeping towards summer and not winter, but I could not help myself, I lOVE this.

If I had an unlimited heels fund…
