BLOG TAKEOVER: TILDEN STYLES THE LARAMIE

I’ve partnered up with Skechers to show off the versatility of their Laramie boot. As the weather cools down, durable footwear becomes a MUST when consideration of keeping your feet warm & dry comes to mind. There’s nothing worse than the misery of cold feet. However, many boots can’t live up to the functionality and aesthetic status us women need – you either get a pair that’s comfortable but ugly or drop-dead chic yet do absolutely nothing for you.

Now boots like these are not meant to be worn to a formal event but that doesn’t mean you have to resort to them for cold stricken situations only. As the typical combat boot we all love and adore, the Laramie encompasses that style but keep your feet warmer than the average combat.

Look 1:  Plaid Dressing

This look takes the best aspects of fall – when the weather is just changing and is still warm enough to sport a dress – and makes them approachable for an everyday outfit. The Laramie takes the style of the combat boot and when paired with the red plaid flannel & scarf, the dress itself takes a whole new perspective. Personally, I feel coziest in oversized tops and big scarves. Matching these favorites with a not-so-typical dress choice makes it all the more easy going.

Look 2:  Blue Collar

With high necks come multiple variations of cardigan and coat layering, which also means the art of keeping warm is of the essence. This weather also allows for the practice of making a durable ankle boot appear more sophisticated. How is this accomplished? When paired with structured & longline pieces as well as black jeans, this boot matches a more than casual style while still taking on the wear and tear of a New York minute.

Look 3:  Denim Approach

I live for casual days and when I can dress relaxed, it’s all the better. Comfort and chic don’t always go hand in hand, so it’s important to match structure opposite to oversized on top/bottom. These boots work as great substitutes for my everyday flats, completely covering my foot and allowing for a wool sock to peek out – a fall trend many of us like to indulge in with our boots of choice.

BLOG TAKEOVER: CASSY STONE’S FALL STYLE TIPS

Look 1: Baby, it’s cold outside!

These understated Mad Dash – Test Drive booties are the perfect complement to your new favorite sweater. As the temps drop, people tend to dress in so many layers that they completely overwhelm their figures. As a rule of thumb: the fluffier and chunkier the knit is on top, the more important it is for your outfit to stay sleek on the bottom. By wearing pants in the exact color or a shade close to that of your shoes, you create an elongated, streamlined effect with your legs. Sometimes, the best way to make a statement with your shoes is to have them blend in!

Look 2: Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

While these boots can be the quiet harmony to your ensemble, sometimes you need a little chic discord to shake things up. The versatility of the Mad Dash – Test Drive bootie is the perfect way to add some edge to playful floral prints. The stud and buckle boot detail mixed with a girly dress in a deep, warm color scheme is a no-fail recipe for fashionable fall flair. Accent your look with a few accessories in a matching metallic color scheme. (Hint: rose gold is the next big thing!)

Look 3: Model Off Duty

Not only do these boots look amazing dressed up, but they’re sure to cause some major shoe-envy when they’re seen dressed down. In this more casual look, you can play up the toughness of the Mad Dash – Test Drive bootie by throwing on a huge t-shirt dress. A patterned flannel artfully tied around your waist is a great way to accent your figure, preventing you from losing your shape underneath all the baggy fabric. Slightly messy hair + “I woke up like this” attitude = an effortlessly stylish look that’ll turn the heads of everyday girls and fashion mavens alike. How does she do it?

STYLES &TRENDS: Sporty Trainers in France

Charisse_photo 2During PARIS Fashion Week for FW14, a woman wearing a Carven coat, fitted trousers and a Celine bag could only be a fashion addict. But what makes this outfit is the sneakers on her feet. Not designer styles with precious details and printed leathers, but real running shoes, first degree, directly from an athlete or jogger’s dressing. The girl is not coming back from the gym and doesn’t have a fitness mat in her office. It’s her “off-duty” style, an expression for taxi drivers, officers and top models on their casual days. Look at models’ blogs, and you’ll see hordes of them in these popular sneakers.

Get the look in Skechers: With a range of bright and light shoes featuring SKECHERS Memory Foam, find the perfect accessory for your “off-duty” look!

CELEBRATE VALENTINE’S DAY WITH SKECHERS!

At SKECHERS, we see Valentine’s Day as a holiday of love and friendship: a chance to celebrate everything from classic romance to beloved friends and family. Most of us are familiar with the day’s iconic red, pink and white hues… but have you ever wondered what they all mean? Read on to learn more about each of these shades, and see how these colors can be a perfect fit when styled up in a new pair of SKECHERS!

RED: Famous for romance, this shade is the top pick for swooning couples, and is always wiped out at florists, chocolatiers and stores come February. While some argue that the red rose was a favorite of goddess of love Venus, everyone agrees that this warm and vibrant shade is known for its passion, energy and excitement.

RED style tip: complete your look (and turn heads) with SKECHERS Cali Club: a bold statement that will make you stand out, all day long.

PINK: While red is sensual, pink actually gets the award for enduring, unconditional love. Thoughtful and caring, pink is an affectionate, gentle shade known for happiness, tenderness and gratitude… positive and inspiring.

PINK style tip: embrace true love with SKECHERS Flirty – Wink: a soft stretch wedge with a sweet boost.

WHITE: It’s the ultimate shade of innocence: nothing evokes a sense of peace and calm like white does. Its beauty lies in its purity: so simple, it awakens the senses.

Q:  What were the top selling shoes from the holiday season this year?

A:  More than ever, people are giving SKECHERS for the holidays.  I’ve heard lots of great gift-giving stories recently; here are some of the shoes that made lots of spirits brighter!

1. SKECH-AIR athletic sneakers were a popular present – they’re perfect for those who love comfort, fun colors and sporty versatility.  http://www.skechers.com/brands/skech-air

2. SKECHERS’ light-up shoes made a lot of kids very happy this season, like my nephew who was so thrilled with his Super Hot Lights that he fell asleep in them that night! Many of SKECHERS’ lighted styles even come with an on/off switch, so the lights can last longer than ever.    http://www.skechers.com/brands/s-lights

4. Cold weather this year made warm, cozy styles everyone’s go-to gift choice, and SKECHERS’ BOBS at Home shoes were a great choice.  Made with plush faux fur, these “slippers” also have a rubber indoor/outdoor sole that can take you from relaxing at home and the dorm to hanging out at the coffee shop. And the fact that SKECHERS donates new shoes to children in need makes them even more appealing for the season of giving.  http://www.skechers.com/brands/bobs-at-home
