Trend Alert: Platform Sandals

Are you concerned with purchasing comfortable shoes this spring/summer, but you don’t want to compensate for the shoe’s stylish appearance? Then, these shoes are great for you! Platform sandals have always been on the fashion radar. Over the years they have been continuously improved and reinvented. However, this year they are particularly different in style! The sandals still give us those few inches of height off the ground, but this time around, the platform isn’t wedged. They have a thick flat platform that is supportive and a sweet-casual shoe alternative. These shoes are similar to the one above, but the metallic shell is truly an eye-catching trend. They would make a great addition to any futuristic outfit of your choice. The perfect casual shoe! Instead of wearing a typical pair of flip-flops, opt for these amazing slip on shoes. Try wearing these with a pair of boyfriend jeans and loose-fitting tee shirt. These black Steve Madden shoes will go perfectly with any of your summer ventures out to the mall or a steaming BBQ party! By Fatimah Foster

Romp Around Town!

Before classes begin again, one last hurrah day-tripping in the city is a must. No matter which city you choose, from New York to Los Angeles, blending in (or standing out) with the masses of fashionistas while keeping comfortable is key. Let us begin this look with a comfy, chic romper. Rompers are funky, low-key, and most importantly keep you cool on a hot summer day in the city. Rompers look great with a variety of shoes, but they look particularly lovely with a pair of sandals. When bopping around the city, regular handbags aren’t very comfortable to carry for hours on end. Instead, try wearing a cute mid-sized backpack to store all of your necessities. Finish off this outfit with some bold, eye-catching pieces of jewelry like an extra long necklace or a cocktail ring. And there you have it: a comfortable, stylish outfit for a day exploring your favorite city! As always, hope we inspired you to create a fun yet practical outfit that is perfect for a city slicker. And if someone …

Fringe Frenzy

Ready to add some spunk to your wardrobe? Fringe screams fun! Let’s go fringe crazy with these spicy new styles. Turn a simple jeans-and-tee combo into a stylish bohemian look with a neutral fringe bag. Fringe bikini tops are more than popular this summer. Make yours stand out by finding a piece with a cool tribal print and lots and lots of color! Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you can’t rock some seriously awesome fringe footwear. Create a ladylike feel by donning a softer hue with gold accents. Statement necklaces are a style necessity for any season, but this summer find a fringe piece that’s light enough so it won’t weigh you down in the heat but packs a punch of color so you’ll be sure to stand out!
