Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!

Hey Lovelies – Cloe here! Want to know a secret? Some mornings I have fashion crises, too!  This morning I woke up and I couldn’t find a thing to wear in my closet FULL of clothes – nothing seemed to look right! Don’t you hate it when that happens? So I decided to first pick a pair of stylin’ shoes and then build my outfit around them. Pretty shoes somehow always make me feel better! Anyway, I slipped on my newest, and most rockin’, pair of heels and suddenly I felt like everything I wore looked super chic and glamorous. Check them out, aren’t they just fab?!?

This got me thinking, shoes are a very important essential in every girl’s closet so I’m going to share with you this spring/summer’s hottest shoe trends – with these five pairs you’re set for summer!

  • Ballet Flats are super cute and comfortable to wear out during the day when you’re having lunch with friends, shopping at the mall or running errands.
  • Fun and easy to wear tennis shoes in cool colors and designs are totally in this season. If you’re going to be doing a lot of walking these are definitely the shoes to choose.
  • Chunky espadrilles are a classic spring shoe. Wear them with a pretty floral sundress for a perfect match.
  • Bejeweled gladiator sandals are a great alternative for the average pair of flip-flops. They’re just as easy to wear but they come in super stylin’ varieties that you can dress up or down – and show off your latest pedicure!
  • Going out for a fancy occasion? Wear dark denim and pick up a pair of vampy heels to add a little glam but still keep a chic casual feel to your outfit.

What does your favorite pair of springtime shoes look like?

Hot Trend: How to Wear Colored Denim

 

Hi Bratzies!

Colors are in this season and they’re popping up all over the place… even in denim! Celebrities like Rihanna and Fergie have been spotted rockin’ colorful jeans in magazines and models have been strutting them down the runways. I’ll share with you the secret to sporting this stylish trend and looking fabulous!

Blue jeans will never go out of style. Whether they’re boot cut, straight leg, flared or skinny, denim is here to stay! But why stop at blue when there are so many colors in the rainbow? This season jeans are showing up in a variety of colors from vibrant red to sunny yellow and they’re easy to dress up or down.  I like dressing up my pink skinny jeans with a metallic top and dark vest.

I love wearing my pink skinny jeans!

Here are a few of my style tips for wearing colored denim:

  • Pick the right fit: Most colored denim are skinny jeans, but I’ve also seen them in boot cut and straight leg styles. Pick the cut and size that compliments your body. You don’t want to be uncomfortable or look like a brightly colored fashion faux pas!
  • Play with patterns: Wear yellow denim with a leopard top or coral denim with a flower print top. As long as the pattern contains one similar color to the denim you’ll look fashionable and fierce.
  • Structured blazers: Pair your denim with a blazer to create a polished yet fun look. A white and navy striped top with a navy blazer goes great with red denim.
  • Neutrals: You can’t go wrong with light rosy pink jeans, a white top and khaki blazer. Or you can try berry-purple jeans and black blouse.
  • Color blocking: Color blocking is still very in and works well with this trend. Pick two colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel and you’re guaranteed a perfect match. Royal blue jeans and an orange top go great together.

 Now go on and be colorful with these tips in mind! Have fun with it and never be afraid to be daring with your style.
