Nancy Sinatra once crooned “These boots are made for walking” and truer words have never been sang this season at Midnight Velvet. Boots, boots, boots and more boots! Boy do we have them! High boots with stacked heels like our Dune boot in blue suede. Biker jacket inspired boots with luxe details and hip hardware like our knee high Quilt Front Boot! Booties with fringe in suede like our Side Fringe Shootie, Or my favorites the Claudia Bootie in vibrant red or leopard print! And that’s just to name a few!
Some trends never go out of style and fringe is definitely one of them. Fringe is a modern classic. A suede fringe jacket is a staple in fashion. We updated this cool piece with our Fringed Jacket in red or grey suede. The Fringed Jacket is the perfect coat for your fall weekends! It’s stunning with jeans, boots and a cozy sweater. And it’s a stand out when paired with black trousers & a black turtleneck for a chic work look.
One of the most exciting things about fall is IT’S BOOTS SEASON and I worked with Midnight Velvet to shoot a video serving up some of the hottest styles of boots this season. I’d actually go as far as saying some of the hottest styles ever! There is definitely a boot for every look you want to rock! There is sexy chic like our leopard print booties that also come in blazing red. There is so much to love about this bootie! The leopard print, the shape, the gold zippers, the chic heel height! They are super stylish, cutting a sexy silhouette yet the heel height makes them wonderfully wearable and comfy! They are great to dress up a black skirt, or dress and tights, but so fun when worn with rolled up denim!
I distinctly remember in recent years when the legging made it triumphant comeback. But remember not too long ago the legging and it’s slightly staid older sister the stirrup pant were passé. They were replaced in the mid-nineties to early two thousands when the trouser came roaring back, heralded by designers like Darryl K, Katayone Adeli & Helmut Lang. Do you remember that moment when it was all about sharply designed pants in stove pipes, bell bottoms and flares? And pleats disappeared and it all at once became about the flat front low slung trouser?
At the end of my latest video with Midnight Velvet about Gauchos I say “Girl get your gauchos on!” and I mean it. Gaucho, culottes, split skirts or whatever you want to call them, this cropped wide legged pant is one of Fall 2016’s hottest trends. I love gauchos because they are a modern update to pants and let’s face it, they are fun!
In Midnight Velvet’s Red Trench Video, I say “Don’t cover up your style, amplify it!” I love that! Just because the temperatures cool doesn’t mean you get to slack on your style! One of the reasons why a coat is so important is you’re going to wear it constantly. Your coat is the piece you go to over and over again. Day after day, week after week, your coat needs to be practical but inspiring! It needs to be something you want to wear.
