Fall Trend – Velvet Crush

by Irina on September 30, 2017

Fall has officially arrived and so have my cravings for a wardrobe style update and anything pumpkin spiced. Velvet continues to be one of the major trends for the colder sweater weather season this year, especially in autumnal jewel tones like mustard, petrol blue, wine or purple. Dare to stand out in a statement velvet piece or wear multiple velvet items in one look. Here I’ve come up with an up-to-date Fall look based on two of my favorite velvet picks and included accessories that I think would work well with either one of the dresses. So what you do think? Is velvet still hot or are you totally over it by now? Let us know in the comments!

Satin sandal slides have been a huge trend this year and Gianvito Rossi just knows how to make a chic summer flat that will look fabulous both with dressy dresses or with casual jeans or shorts. I love the effortlessness of being able to simply slide into a shoe and be instantly ready to go. These are the perfect shoes for a summer vacation! If you have the lavish shopping budget to opt for a pair of flats that’ll set you back $595, of course.

Chinese Laundry “Pattie” Frayed Satin Slide Sandals

Luckily, we’ve been able to find a just as chic alternative by Chinese Laundry which looks a lot like the designer real deal above, but will cost you less than $40 (currently on sale for $22.99 down from $49.95). These stylish satin slides come in four different colors, but the rose and the nude version are my personal favorites! Steal deal alert!

Mango “Nilo” Fringe Satin Sandals

If you want to save even more, check out these super cute satin slide sandals by Mango which come in either orange or lavender and are currently on sale for $29.99 (were $49.99). They have a more prominent fringe, but the overall design is still strinkingly similar to the Gianvito Rossi designer version. Love these!

While I admittedly do not know much about The Row other than it’s a fashion label launched by the Olsen twins, I do know that I really, really like their “April” Bow Satin Slides. Intendedly or not, these sandals combine three current fashion trends: 1) knotted bows on 2) flat slides embedded in 3) shiny satin fabric. It’s all about laid-back comfort footwear these days and I have to admit: I like it! What I don’t like though is the $795 price tag on what is basically just a thong sandal. You’re cute, April, but you’re not that cute! We’ll talk again in the sale section.

Sam Edelman “Dariel” Studded Bow Flat Thong Sandals

Update (07/06/2017): Discovered these almost spot-on April dupe sandals by Sam Edelman which look a lot like the real deal but have some extra studs added. Available in various colors, uppers and prints for $70 (sale price!).

If you’re not willing to wait until the real deal goes on sale, feel free to take a look at these fabulous slide sandals by Kensie. They’re almost a spot-on “April” dupe but so much cheaper! I also love the added blush pink color! And who wouldn’t love the price of $47.70? Add to cart, please!

Liliana Dee-1 Satin Slide Sandals

Still not convinced? How about these fabulous and super affordable The Row look-alikes I found at GoJane then? They have the same spot-on design, come in a variety of lovely summer colors including mint green and periwinkle blue and are currently on sale for a steal-worthy $15.91! Definite steal deal alert!

Mango Bow Satin Sandals

And lastly, if you don’t want an obvious designer knock-off, check out this satin bow slide sandal I discovered at Mango which I think is a wonderful alternative to The Row’s “April” slides. These are from Mango’s “Premium” collection, so the price of $149.99 is higher than we are used of Mango, but they are still more than $600 cheaper than the real deal, so there’s that.

Can you believe half of the year has almost already gone by? Time flies, my friends, and summer has officially arrived – at least in our calendars! In order to celebrate the seasonal change, I created my first 2015 summer budget look to properly welcome the season of pool parties, BBQs, tan lines and cool drinks. For this look I took to the summer sky as my source of inspiration: baby blue with a little bit of cloudy white here and there and splashes of summery yellow everywhere in between.

Very much the modern update on a classic pointy-toe pump, this design by Christian Louboutin is perfect for the fashionista who wants to be the first to add another sexy pair of heels to her wardrobe. While most versatile in black, (the way Rihanna and Lea Michele wear theirs), if you’ve got the budget to also get them in neon yellow… you can count on your feet getting a considerable amount of attention all season and beyond. And considering the popularity of this pair among Hollywood’s most stylish stars, it’s no wonder you can’t find them in stores. But, the good news is other designers are definitely catching on and look-a-likes have begun to emerge… One of the first designs to echo this coveted futuristic design at an affordable price is shown below…

Wild Rose Posy-01 PVC Ankle Strap Pumps

If you are a huge fan of the designer look above, then why not have a little fun with this version by Wild Rose? While it’s definitely not worth a huge investment, if you’re one to try many different styles, you can have a lot of fun wearing these. I do wish they had a little bit of a higher/skinnier heel and lower cut toe, but for ca. $30 you can play with this trend and show a little pop of neon under some trousers during cocktail hour. Pick one other accessory in a complimentary neon shade (like a cuff or a great belt) to really pull the outfit together and make it look effortless. Perhaps try the bright orange pair under some navy pinstripe trousers, a white blouse and a couple bright bangles in gold and magenta.
