Anyone else experiencing seasonal affective disorder of their wardrobe? Post–fashion week—after we pulled out the most street-style worthy looks we could find from the depths of our closets—we are officially ready to swap out our bomber jackets and wool trousers for spring dresses and floaty skirts.
Updating your fall boot selection is hard work. After all, these (often leather) numbers usually require a serious monetary commitment. And when we shell out the big bucks, we expect style, comfort and durability in return. In a perfect world, all boots would be as timeless as that moment when we glance at their price tag.
We feel it in our gut. This will be the spring/summer (who can even differentiate between seasons anymore?) of the wedge.
When the weather's down in the dumps, trick your brain by wearing happy, pastel clothing. Top things off with an umbrella that shouts "spring" and a PVC overlay that's precipitation — but not admiring-eye — proof.
Take it from front row denizen Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert: a snowy white backdrop is the perfect excuse to rock in-your-face, Barbie-approved colors. (The more you resemble the star of an early aughts Doublemint gum commercial, the better.) Also, match your neck bandana to your unabashedly bright sweater.
When there’s snow and sleet on the ground, stilettos and even in-betweenie kitten heels are persona non grata, as far as we’re concerned. (Go ahead, test your luck with a block heel…but don’t say we didn’t warn you.) Rather than wind up with your butt planted on a dirty slab of concrete or clutching a twisted ankle — not exactly stylish — we recommend you ditch your oh-so-sexy heels for a pair of currently #trending embellished flats.
