The first thing that caught my eye about this Fashionista is the way that she rocks the long debated, and often feared, wedge sneakers. Many have been slow and uneasy about the marriage of wedges and sporty sneakers, but this Fashionista shows us how the wedge sneaker can make an average denim and sweater outfit look chic, stylish and edgy. While many may still be skeptical about the wedge sneaker consider the reasons we all love our wedges; they are far more sturdy than any stiletto point, yet still give us the same long-legged feminine silhouette. And, now let’s think of the endless reasons why we love slipping on our favorite pair of stylish sneakers… the list goes on forever. Fashion forward shoe brand Ash offers the Bowie suede wedge sneaker in many colors including navy, black and chamois.
Another piece that I believe every Fashionista should own is the edgy nail bracelet. It looks great worn with other bracelets or alone, and is easily paired with grunge clothes as well as with jeans and a regular shirt. Cartier’s “Juste Un Clou” originally of the ’70s has become the most idyllic nail bracelet. The style has been reinvented by many designers over the past few decades. Similar to Cartier’s LOVE bangle of the same era, the chic and trendy gold nail bracelet can now be sought by resourceful Fashionistas who do not have an extra few thousand dollars to drop! Shops including Mush Boutique, Urban Outfitters and even BCBGeneration, which have their own versions to help you nail it every day!
Spotted: The Elie Tahari fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection offers a wide range of functional and fashionable pieces. Similar to this Fashionista, the collection is styled to appropriate urban chic and wearable trends in the colder months. The line debuted just last month and, like this Fashionista, isn’t afraid to take the next step with unique and edgy style.
