We can express our love for the sneaker heel until we’re blue in the face, and Marc Jacobs can chime in, too, but we’re sure some of you might still think that the shoe sounds more like an oxymoron than an actual trend.
Well, here’s the response to all of your raised-rubber-sole aversions. Be&D has introduced a high-top that plays tricks on the eyes with a hot pink silhouette of a sexy stiletto along its side. Unlike other stacked-heel lace-ups, these kicks are actually real sneakers; meaning your feet will be planted safely on the ground at all times.
Sure, some might argue that Be&D is running along the same lines as faux evening wear, à la tuxedo T-shirts (um, ew), but we like to think of these babies as the clever, quirky, and, yes, cute alternative to this season's oh-so controversial trend. Plus, we're making an official prediction of a few Be&D-faux-sneaker-heel sightings at next fall's Fashion Week.
You know, it’s hard to hang on to that “fresh out of the shower” feeling when you’re stressed and running around all day. Thankfully, Elizabeth and James can help. The Olsen-helmed brand’s Clara Dress, shown here, mimics your favorite post-bath wrap in an elegant shade of mint.
We suggest pairing it with…well…anything that covers it up a bit, lest the doorman forbid you from entering the club because he thinks you forgot to put on real clothes. But you tell us: Would you wear this strapless number, or do you prefer to actually get dressed when you get dressed? All kidding aside, it does come with straps — which make it look like a bath towel with straps.
Elizabeth and James Clara Dress, $ 395, available at Shopbop.
It’s festival season and we couldn’t be more excited! In light of one of our favorite seasons (to dress for, clearly), we’re going with crochet two ways. Adding the perfect essentials like a necklace and bracelets, then walkin’ it out with some cute flats, not only makes for TWO bangin’ outfits, but a lighter weekend bag too! We’ve got you covered were ever you go, girl.
