Shoes: What They Say About You

Shoes aren’t ordinary accessories. Most people consider them to be something that simply complements an outfit. However, we think that these beloved pieces are one of the most expressive items that not only show off your style, but your mood and personality. They are the glue to an outfit, the last piece of the puzzle, the punctuation at the end of a statement. Shoes come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but here are some examples of what your favorite shoe trends can say about you.

Heels_edited

 

HEELS: Confidence

Heels look fabulous, are slightly dangerous, and exude confidence. It has little to do with what color they are or which designer you’re wearing, but that it physically changes you. Whether the heel is comfortably low or sky high, you look and feel great in them! You literally rise to the occasion with a few inches added to your height. Your shoulders tend to pull back, your posture straightens, and you wear them with full disclosure that your feet may seriously ache within a few hours.

 

 

 

Wedge_Edited

 

WEDGE: Go-Getter

It’s no secret that it’s much easier to walk in wedged heels. Why should you have to choose between style and comfort? Wedged heels bridge that gap and allows you to have the best of both worlds. You can make your dressed up attire more casual or style up your casual look.You want it all and wedged heels have it all.

 

Flats_editedFLATS: Adaptable

Just because these aren’t high and dramatic doesn’t mean that they are boring! They are much more versatile than a pair of heels and can keep up with whatever pace the day throws at you. For example, with a pair of black leather pointed flats you can rush to get that coffee, go through that grueling meeting, and still make it in time for cocktail hour. You don’t hold back, and neither will your flats.

 

Flip-Flops_editedFLIP FLOPS and SANDALS: Laid back

When you think about flip flops and slip-on shoes, you don’t think about being busy. You think about relaxation: the beach, soaking up the sun, or  just lounging around the house with your cat and a cup of tea. It’s about simplicity, not stress. Here in SoCal, we can’t get enough of them! Some of our favorite picks are actually from Sperry Top-Sider, who are primarily known for boat shoe styles. The free spirit of shoes, flip flops and sandals break away from all the fuss and relish in ease and comfort.

 

sneakers_editedSNEAKER: Practical
Sneakers have been deemed to be ordinary, but we think otherwise. They embody comfort, style, function, and even have complex technologies manufactured right in. Sneakers are ready for a day of relaxation or a day of non-stop movement. In a moment’s notice you can go from reading a book in a park to a full running sprint in order to pick up your dry cleaning. Minimalist, fashionable, and athletic sneaker styles rule with practicality. It’s the most logical choice for everyday life. Looking for some fresh new picks? Check out our Lacoste collection!

 

Boots_Edited

BOOTS: Femme Fatale

From heavy rubber treads to the highest stiletto, boots are aggressive. Even more elegant styles in our UGG Australia collection grab a lot of attention. Whether it’s the height of the boot, the amount of lacing, or the style of the heel, boots offer a touch of ferocity to any look. Most boots have this elegance with a tough-as-nails attitude, just like the woman who wears them.

Women’s Shoe Trends for Summer 2014

Summer is just around the corner! The season is all about showing a little more leg, a flirty peek at the shoulders, and flaunting an awesome pedicure. This summer, make sure to stock up on new styles for your shoe collection! Here are some of our favorite shoe style picks for 2014 summer fashion.

 

What the Cuff?

Cuffed sandals and high heels can sharpen up so many looks. The silhouette is a little less formal and a whole lot of sexy. Although we are thrilled about our new Sperry Top-Sider sandals, the design does the most flattering as a high heel shoe like the Tsubo Triss. It gives you a little extra height, elongates those legs, and adds to the elegance of the overall look . Skinny jeans may be all the rave, but full length pants will disrupt the design. When pairing with pants, try to make sure that the bottom hem doesn’t cover the cuff. We suggest that the hems stop at the top of the cuff or leave at least a 1-inch gap.

Match them with: slim fit clothing, pencil skirts, cropped pants

Show Off Those Booties!

Boot lovers rejoice! Winter may have passed, but that doesn’t mean your boots have to be stowed away. That includes even the coziest of cozy boots, UGG Australia! Instead, switch from knee-high boots to ankle boots. For stylish everyday looks, we recommend boot styles that are designed to have a little room around the ankles. They flatter the calves and can complement anything from skinny jeans to summer dresses. If you want options, find boots with laces. For example, lace-up boots like Dr. Martens allow you to create a tight or slouchy fit. Opt for a low heel or no heel at all for a look that’s comfortable and truly effortless!

Match them with: shorts, fitted bottoms, loose tops, summer dresses

Wonderfully Woven

When summer rolls around, beachy inspired looks are popular even in the city! Woven shoe styles are light, playful, and perfect for everyday wear. Many of them will come in bright colors or in a rich neutral that complement brighter seasonal colors. For example, our woven flats from Rocket Dog are bright and lively, while our Sperry Top-Sider shoes remain a little more classic. The woven texture adds something special to skinny jeans and plays nicely with many other patterns. For instance, the woven lines match with stripes and plaid, while the holes and eyelets complement polka dots, florals, and lace. It’s no wonder that woven styles are a favorite this time of year!

Match them with: printed patterns, solid colors, denim

Get on Point

Even in a plain and solid color, pointed toe flats instantly add drama. The shape is universally flattering for any body type and for any outfit. They look stunning with more formal attire, but still offer a touch of elegance to casual looks. If you want to break away from flip-flops and plain ballet flats, try a pair of pointed flats. They are a wonderful shoe in canvas or linen, but for true versatility leather pointed flats can work with anything from casual denim to a cocktail dress.

Match them with: denim, shorts, dresses

This month, the launch of Coachella took social media by storm! The digital world was buzzing with band excitement, celebrity sightings, and pinterest-worthy style pics! So while the weekend was heating up, Designer Studio decided to cool down with UGG Australia at their Style Haven House Party.

Real vs. Fake UGG® Boots

UGG® Australia is famous for their plush footwear and their quality materials. When the cold rolls in, UGG® boots are a go-to favorite. With that said, there are people selling cheap fake versions. Don’t be fooled! We’re here to give you a few key tips on identifying fake UGG® from the real deal.

1. Flex

This tip is geared toward the classic styles because they don’t have rubber soles. All Classic style UGG® boots are made with molded EVA outsoles which are durable, yet very flexible. If you come across a boot where the sole is stiff and won’t bend very easily; it’s probably a fake.



2. Pull it Apart

Another tip for the Classic styles! Twinface sheepskin is simply sheepskin. One side is skin, the other side is fur. Fake boots will have a counterfeit double lining. Take a pinch of material from the outside. On the same location on the inside, take a pinch and gently pull both ends. If the material separates and you can feel or see a pocket form, then it’s a fake. UGG® Classic style boots are made with a single piece of sheepskin and should not separate like that at all.

3. Mind Your… Ankles?

You may have seen it before. Some poor soul walking around in a pair of boots that are completely collapsing with every step. It looks as if they are walking on their ankles! Where’s the luxurious comfort in a boot that falls apart with every step? UGG® boots do not collapse like that. UGG® may have soft suede heel guards, but what’s underneath it is a durable counter; the part of the boot that wraps around the heel of your foot. Real UGG® boots will maintain it’s structure for both the integrity of the boot and for the comfort of your feet!

 

4. Authorized Retailer

When in doubt, check the list! UGG® Australia has a list of authorized retailers who have been verified to sell authentic UGG® Australia products in stores and online.  Designer Studio is definitely on that list and we’re proud to sell authentic UGG®!

For more information about counterfeit products, check out the official UGG® counterfeit page!

Be Dramatic: UGG Australia’s Dreaux Boots

ugg_boots_facebook

We’re featuring one of our favorite boots of the season: the Dreaux boots by UGG Australia! Class meets sass in this luscious leather boot that’s tall, sleek, and sexy. Here are a few reasons why they are a must-have buy of the season.

1. Quality Materials

Leather is luxurious, but can also be very stiff. Not with the Dreaux boot! The shaft is soft for the best comfort and mobility while the foot part features a firmer leather for durability and style. Inside, it’s lightly lined with plush sheepskin to give you that signature UGG Australia comfort that we all know and love!

 

2. Va-va-voom Height!

This boot is all about height. The platform is about an inch, the stacked heel is 4 inches high, and the boot shaft is a whopping 17.75 inches! The result is a tall and dramatic silhouette that’s achieved by drawing the eye up while slimming the legs. Since the lengthy illusion is based on the height of the boot rather than the height of the heel, you’re feet will be much more comfortable throughout the day.

 

3. Showing Some Leg Without Showing Them Off

Like your favorite pair of skinny jeans or a flattering fitted top, the Dreaux boots show off your shape without showing off much skin. It’s the perfect piece of footwear that matches nicely with winter outerwear and also makes dresses more wearable during the colder months! The overall look is very elegant with a hint of fierce attitude. Even though over-the-knee-boots are dramatic looking, they can actually be quite versatile. Get inspired by these celebrity looks!

It’s The Month Of Love!

Romantic FashionFebruary is known as the “month of love” because of Valentine’s Day, and we spend days, even weeks, getting ready for it. We start planning what we’re going to do, what we’re going to give to our special someone, and the most important thing, what we’re going to wear!

Everyone has their own style, but there’s still ways to add touches of romance to every look whether it’s punk, trendy, boho, or classic elegance.

Punk: If you like to wear punk, which can range in style from classic to glam to steampunk then your closet is full of dark clothing, studded leather jackets, military style boots, and fingerless leather gloves.

Romance it up! Add a pink or red ruffled lace camisole under the leather jacket, pink mesh tights with a leather mini skirt and boots, or pink fingerless gloves and studded leather jewelry.

Date Night Movie: Enjoy a classic punk movie like Valley Girl or Sid and Nancy, or the more recent What We Do is Secret.

 

Trendy: If you’re into the latest styles and trends, then your wardrobe consists of color block clothing with flashy embellishments, flared skirts, fur handbags, and high heels made with a mix of fabrics and patterns.

Romance it up! Make your look flirty and romantic by wearing a dress in a color block of reds and pinks, with either a sheer top or bottom block. A flared skirt is romantic by itself, but you can add a ruffled pink or red blouse and kitten heels to complete the look. Complete your look with an adorable handbag trimmed in pink or red fur.

Date Night Movie: Snuggle up with your favorite guy and watch P.S. I Love You, The Notebook, or the timeless Titanic.

 

Boho: One of the most versatile styles around, boho ranges from boho grunge to boho chic and everything in between. It’s a style that naturally incorporates romance from flowing skirts and dresses to ruffled shirts and lacy accessories.

Romance it up! Add a pink or red lacy camisole to a printed flowered skirt, pair crocheted UGG boots with lacy pink or red tights and a long sweater dress, or wear a delicate lace or ruffled scarf loosely around your neck.

Date Night Movie: Curl up in front of the fire and enjoy an indie favorite like Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding, Happiness Runs, or a rom-com like Wanderlust.

 

Classic Elegance: If you dress in classic fashion, you prefer plaids, tweeds, slacks, button-down shirts and the like. It’s a timeless look that never goes out of style, and it’s easy to incorporate trendy or romantic touches.

Romance it up! Change out the button-down shirt to one with ruffles and lace or pair the slacks with flats decorated with a bow. Instead of slacks, wear a flared skirt with a peek-a-boo lace hem and heels for a romantic touch. Or, you can add a sheer wrap over a lacy camisole to wear with your favorite slacks and pumps.

Date Night Movie: Classic style calls for classic romantic movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Ghost, or Sleepless in Seattle.
