Style Advice of the Week

I’ll be the first to admit I have an obsession with shoes. Every time I go to Nordstrom I cannot help but stroll out with a brand new pair in hand. There is something about shoes that draw you in, and as you browse you think of all the outfits that become much more visually appealing with the perfect pair. To me, shoes are like art and each pair tells a story. Boots are always the shoe of choice as the cold weather settles in, however finding a Fashionista with a stellar pair of flats is always a surprise among a campus filled with leather knee-highs!

I spotted this Fashionista donning a pair of strappy flats with color blocking and studded detailing. The straps of the flats create an interesting form by incorporating different shapes that accentuate her slim foot. With the intricate detailing, the shoes create the perfect accessory. The metallic accents and the studs truly make a show stopping statement. Aside from her shoes, this Fashionista opted for a simple outfit. She chose the classic LBD in a jersey-knit with a military-green jacket. She tops off her look with delicate gold jewelry with similar studded detailing. The studs of the flats and green jacket have a bit of an edgier appeal, yet the detailing of the straps and metallic colors bring a softer and more poised charm to her feet.

For a casually cool look as shown by this Fashionista, start with finding a pair of bedazzled flats. This multicolored-studded oxford with cutouts by Sam Edelman is the perfect statement shoe. It’s a twist on the classic oxford. Pair them with black jeans, a military-green jacket and thick sweater for the perfect fall ensemble. You can also try pairing them with a trending plaid print patchwork frock from Urban Outfitters that can be completed with a vegan leather moto jacket for an edgy touch!

Bring back the pip in your step with a pair of studded flats for a fabulous fall look!
