Stepping into summer 17
The temperature slowly rises, the air becomes humid, and the pavement becomes a stomping ground for open-toed shoes. This is summer in the city, and we’re welcoming it with open arms. And killer shoes. Whether you’re dodging sidewalk traffic to get to work, hopping on the Jitney for a weekend getaway, or casually strolling the Union Square farmer’s market, we have the perfect pair to get you where you need to be. We partnered with streetstyle maven Jessica Wang, of Not Jess Fashion (@notjessfashion), to style our latest collection which features a range of handbags and shoes designed to step up your summer game. Here’s three of our favorite looks that will take you from work to weekend to everything in between.
The Shoe: Caia Flat in Pearl Grey + Waverly Tote in Black
The Look: Working Girl
When your week requires constant hustle & bustle, there’s no doubt that flats are the way to go. The Caia lace-up oxford in pearlized patent leather combines comfort and on-trend style to create the perfect everyday shoe. Paired with a feminine dress and structured blazer, all that’s left is the essential carry-all. Toss your laptop and latest fashion mag into the Waverly tote and you’ll be #1 on the office best-dressed list. You got this girl.
The Shoe: Gianna Heel in Mirage + Waverly Crossbody in Lagoon
The Look: Weekend Play
Working is a thing of the past once summer Friday’s roll in. The weekend is that much closer, and you’re ready to play. Work hard, play harder as we like to say. For Jessica, this means a crisp white top paired with a destroyed denim mini skirt and Gianna heels. The wearable shoe is just the right amount of neutral, with a touch of metallic gold shimmer. You could walk in them for days – or hail a cab, your choice. The Waverly crossbody is the ideal grab-and-go bag, perfect for handsfree frolicking.
The Shoe: Harvey Sneaker in Iridescent + Warren Backpack in Nylon
The Look: Model Off-Duty
We’re inspired by Jessica’s ability to make casual look so cool. It’s that model off-duty vibe we strive for daily. Dare we say, “I woke up like this”. The grey and black ensemble is giving us major New Yorker feels, especially paired with super sporty Harvey sneakers - the iridescent silver is space-age chic in the best of ways. The Warren backpack is an easy choice in black nylon. Just the athletic touch you need, no gym required.
