Isabel Marant | Milwaukeee boots | Look 4 Less

This fall Isabel Marant came up with a hodgepodge of “cowgirl meets rocker glam” hybrid shoes. The “Milwaukee” boot is a beautifully cratfed studded suede and leather Western ankle boot. It’s the perfect fall/winter everyday boot with enough personality to be the center of attention in an outfit.

Maison Martin Margiela x H&M Plexi Wedge Booties

Designer capsule collections never really bothered me, mostly because I found most items to be way too overpriced and . Maison Martin Margiela x H&M was no different for me. I know many consider Margiela to be a fashion visionary, but I finnd most of his clothes simply unwearable. It’s just not my style. However, I always used to have a soft spot for his shoe line and the shoes from Margiela’s capsule collection for H&M really resonated with me. My absolute favorite style were the wedge booties with the lucite wedge heel but $350 for a pair of H&M shoes? Uh, thank you, but no, thank you!

While I think $171.99 is still quite a lot of money for an H&M-quality item, these lucite heel wedge booties by Choies which look almost identical to the Margiela x H&M wedges are still about 50% cheaper and made of real leather, too, just like the real Margielas. Plus, you can save another 20% with the promo code above which cuts down the price to a reasonable $137.59 (the store offers free worldwide shipping, too). Now that’s a deal, right?

Chiara Ferragni | The Blonde Salad | Valentino Rockstud PVC Thong Sandals

During the summer season, flip-flops aren’t usually my type of go-to shoes unless I am going to the beach. However, these Valentino Rockstud PVC Thong Sandals redefine the mundane flip-flop, making them an elegant semi-casual yet semi-formal summer shoe.

And, of course, the stylish fashion blogger and footwear designer, Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad, proves all of the statements above. As she pairs them with various outfits, these Valentinos exhibit their endless potential as a versatile summer sandal.

Splurging $295 on PVC footwear that can only be worn only during one part of the year is quite the extravagant price to pay. Thanks to Steve Madden, the “JIFFY” Studded Jelly Thong Sandals are the perfect budget-friendly alternative to the Valentinos above. Priced at $39.95, they are almost identical to its designer counterpart with only minor differences that are hardly even noticeable.

Metallic trend

You love the latest metallic trend and you’d work them into your wardrobe without looking like a disco ball, isn’t it?

I  DEAD BEAT  I

Pair metallics with neutrals and keep accessories minimal.- Styling with sequins and metallic finishes can be overwhelming. The key to avoid going overboard is to pick one bold piece and anchor it with neutral basics and classic silhouettes.

METALLIC BLAZER
A tuxedo blazer in a snappy fabrication is the perfect topper for a simple dress. I like to mirror the tones of the dress in the shoes. This coordination keeps it pulled together, and also ensures that your look stays on target if you lose the blazer after a few twirls around the dance floor. Top it off with modern earrings and a structured clutch. These elements echo back to the blazer, keeping the ensemble rooted in a crisp and angular sensibility.

METALLIC TEE
A textured metallic tee is a fun move for party season: the shine packs a punch but the shape is easy to wear. Style it back to a sharp pencil skirt to keep with the simple silhouette. Give the look life with a sexy shoe and modern clutch, and finish it off with sparkling gems.
