Summer Style Staple

Fashion is going to new heights with the return of the wedge heel. Whether you choose a slightly wedged espadrille or a strappy, metallic wedge sandal, this is the must-have shoe of the summer!

Take notice ladies: a wedge can offer more support (of the foot variety) than a traditional heel, making it a bit more comfortable to wear.

To ease into the height, try the Hollywould Callie wedge in yellow snake. This shoe will add a bit of stature and large boost of color.

If you’re comfortable with a higher heel, the BCBGirls Carella in florite green and rich brown or the Matisse Sabine in natural and brown might be for you.

The Apepazza Rhoslyn in pewter, features a cork wedge with braided rope, an ideal match for a summer date.

Shopping for shoes!

Old-Time Glamour

It’s time to raid your grandmother’s jewelry box for retro glamour inspiration, as the brooch is back!

Brooches, a decorative jewelry item featuring a pin, are making a strong resurgence this season. Serving a functional, yet fashionable purpose, this jeweled accessory has been around since the Bronze Age.

Look for brightly colored gemstones and unique designs for a more modernized ornamental pin.

Whether it’s pinned to your blazer’s lapel at work or to your wrap during an evening on the town, brooches add a touch of sophistication to any occasion.

Off to accessorize!

Sail Away in Style!

Nautical accessories are style staples, even if you don’t plan on setting sail this summer. Stripes, rope detail or gold embellishments on shoes and accessories can help you perfect a sailor-inspired look.

To ease into the look, try striped bangles or a clutch, like the Heather Hawkins patent leather clutch in red and navy/white.

French Sole’s Sender flat, available in nut or fire, features rope detailing and would be a great on-deck shoe, should you have plans to cruise the harbor.

The gold link detail on Apepazza’s Mila shoe adds a bit of maritime whimsy to the classic wedge heel.

Bon Voyage!
