The Clog Trend

29 Jun

I clearly remember my first pair of clogs. I had wanted them for ages and when I finally got them I had a whole order of clothes to pair them with. I wore them through blisters and on to callouses. I continued to wear them even though they made me trip all the time. That was 1993.

These days I’m not as certain about clogs, in part because you have to be careful which kinds you buy in order to not spend weeks wearing them in, and also because there are just so many damn ugly styles out there. (Versions so ugly they take a perfectly cute outfit and ruin it with troll feet.) That said, when they are done right, they can be damn adorable (and comfortable) and recent styles tend to be much more creative than those of the 90s!

Here are seven styles I’m digging…

The Sexy Clog: Lace Up Corset Clog, $245 at No6

The Classic Summer Clog: Ollie Clogs, $80 at Topshop

The T-Strap Clog: Sonoma Clog, $168 at Free People

The Fashion Forward Clog: Twelfth St By Cynthia Vincent Tamara Clog, $350 at Revolve Clothing

The Spanish Clog: Sanita Frida Clog, $51 at ASOS

The Chunky High Heel Clog: Jeffrey Campbell Charlie Clogs, $150 at Singer22

Summer Style

28 Jun

One of my absolute favorite types of outfits to wear is a breezy dress with flat sandals and a cross-body bag. Easy, comfortable and with a million opportunities for variation. I love this dress by Joie because the silhouette is forgiving yet sexy and paired with clogs it is on trend yet natural, not at all as if you’re trying too hard. I can see the whole outfit paired with a topknot.

Joie French Postcard Queen Dress, $188 at Revolve Clothing.
Leather Woven Detail Bag, $60 at Topshop.
Denmark Clog, $88 at Urban Outfitters.
Nuxoll Sunglasses, $12 at Aldo.
Gorjana Stevenson Bracelet, $68 at Shopbop.

Weekend Style

25 Jun

A couple weekends ago I saw a mom pushing her child in a stroller wearing the most fashion-forward yet low-key outfit I’d ever seen on a mom. I instantly wished that I could be so stylish, especially since I don’t have a child to use as my excuse for wanting to wear sweatpants everywhere. Here is a recreation…

Rebecca Taylor Zip Front Jumpsuit In Denim, $242 at Revolve Clothing.
Satya Jewelry Tree of Life Pendant, $154 at Max & Chloe.
Steve Madden Loophole Sandals, $42 at Steve Madden.
Roberto Cavalli Gold Plated Beehive Watch, $609 at ASOS.
Route 63 Messenger Bag, $78 at Lands End.

Summer Dressing

21 Jun

Today is officially the first day of summer, which I cannot be happier about. The longer days keeps me out longer, which makes for more vibrant memories and less time in front of the tube. One thing I especially love about summer is the influx of fun jewelry, like this gorgeous silver necklace from Lee Angel which adds flare to any basic outfit.

Rachel Comey Morris Ankle Cuff Wedge, $311 at La Garconne.
