I love prim and tailored cuts for fall. Layering blazers and with feminine tops and scarves is where girls get to have the best of both the menswear and womenswear worlds. Shopping this week I was having to avert my eyes to keep from gorging myself on all the amazing mens-turned-womens styles, not the least of which being a huge selection of femme loafers, booties and oxfords. These smart pieces doll up an outfit and put a touch on it that says, “Say I won’t.” Take a look at what we’ve picked out.
LAUREN BY RALPH LAUREN Glenda Loafers, $49.99 from Lord & Taylor - Pair with cigarette-leg pants or ankle capris.
The Urban Gal’s Oxford Heel, $62.99 from ModCloth - Try these with tights and a dress.
Janiece, $84.98 from Aldo - You can get away with these all winter with jeans, skirts, leg warmers and trousers.
ASOS MARS Metallic Loafer Shoes, $50.32 from Asos – Another smart loafer, these would totally spice up a pair of jeans.
Schnader, $60.00 from Aldo – You can rock these with your cuffs rolled up to show off some bright socks or even with some patterned tights.
I love the challenge of feminizing these cool-dude-kicks. This season is all about making the old new again, so drag out your Docs, your Hush Puppies and your wing-tips. Rocking this trend is a breeze, and don’t let it stop at your feet! Oversized watches, trousers, skinny belts and vests are popping up everywhere, tailored to flatter your lady-shapes. So don’t let the boys have all the fun.
So, Lovelies, is this another case of “I guess I’ve been wearing these since before they were cool?” Or can you not wait to collect on the goods?
