Getaway Trends 2014 | Styling Ankle Strap Sandals with Pastels & Metallics Pt. 1

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Grey winter days got you feeling blue? Pack your pastels, metallics & ankle strap sandals–then get away, at least for a weekend.
Okay, maybe a week…or even two!


There’s no need to wait for April to start sporting the Spring 2014 trends you find most appealing.
Get away, instead, and head somewhere sunny where your peach colored chiffon and blush blouses may flutter in the breeze; where rose gold and quiet corals dare to brighten sandy, nude neutrals. Buckle up those ankle strap sandals, and take your soles for a ride, but skip the heavy metal–light metallics do it right.

Escaping on a whim is easy if you pack light and keep your selections easy to mix and match–meaning when it comes to trying getaway trends, three is a magic number. No need to go overboard.
Our Blushing Beauty set is the perfect example of how to do this when styling ankle strap sandals with pastels and metallics: 3 of the top trends for Spring 2014.

You want to start building your getaway outfits with a flat shoe and a high heel.

A chic flat is essential because you can dress up your casual looks with ease, then pair them with your party dress when your toes can’t handle compromising style nor comfort.
In this set, we opted for the the pointed toe, Encino ankle strap sandal by Chinese Laundry in Soft Blush. (Also available in Black Blue Ink). We especially love Encino for its double ankle strap detail. This textured pointy toe flat features a thick ankle cuff, as well as a delicate ankle strap below that adds an extra touch of intrigue.

Of course, you’ll need a high heel for glamming up your dressier looks for a night on the town, or at the see-and-be-seen poolside brunch.
For this getaway guide to packing light, we went with the Lickety Split high wedge, ankle strap sandal by BC Footwear in Metallic Rose Gold Leather (Also available in Black Suede).

After you’ve picked your getaway sole mates, the rest is easy: pick a soothing pastel color that has your name written all over it and go with it.
Pick a blouse or two in similar shades that can be interchanged with shorts or a skirt that pairs just as well with your swim suit, too. Including one or two statements pieces with pretty prints or fun florals makes it easy to keep your other items basic enough to mix and match.

Caveat: No need to be matchy matchy with colors (check out our previous post on styling pastels)–just keep colors in the same family, and go for the color block technique.

In our next post, we will show you how to style this same trend, with an earthier twist–buckling up another set of ankle strap sandals (a high heel and a flat) while keeping up with the other Spring 2014 trends we’re currently crazy about: pastels and metallics!

Check out our Color Block mood board on Pinterest for more pastel inspiration.

Happy Travels!

Shopping celebration: DNA Footwear Williamsburg 1 year Anniversary

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Due to Hurricane Sandy, please note that this event has been canceled.

Coffee shops, street music, an abundance of the best thrift stores, little boutique gems, and a gaggle of artsy residents bizarrely wearing the latest fashion trends, Williamsburg is indeed the unofficial East Coast birthplace of hipsterism, so called by Forbes.

It has already been a year since this eccentric and strangely charming neighborhood has welcomed DNA Footwear’s fifth location. The welcome is as warm as its beginnings, and as a way to thank all of you, we are inviting you for an exclusive shopping event on Tuesday, November 13th.

In collaboration with Brooklyn Brewery and Brooklyn designer, Samantha Pleet, collaborator of the Wolverine 1000 Mile collection, DNA’s rustic-chic location will be feted with a beers & bites shopping event, complete with live music, giveaways, shoe raffles & a 20% discount on most brands!

Certainly an event that should not be missed, join DNA employees, loyal customers, and footwear representatives on this meaningful occasion.

This event is open to all, be sure to RSVP at We look forward to seeing you there!

Drab to Fab: Upgrade Your Winter Wardrobe

Monday, January 2nd, 2012


Leave your winter woes behind because it’s time to go from drab to fab and upgrade your winter wardrobe. Long gone are the days of boring blacks — welcome fur and prints into your wardrobe.

Forget the plain rain boots and opt for a bold print such as these Kamik floral Heather boots. That also means it’s time to say good bye to your black “cankle” boots and slip on a cozy fur-lined pair of Sorels, which are ever-so-popular amongst the celebs this year. Feel like staying in for a cozy night of reading? Do it in style with UGG Australia slip-ons. Not the quiet night in type? Put on your high heel fur-trimmed BC boots and you’re ready to go!

Isn’t it time you took your closet from drab to fab?!

Set Sail for Summer with BC Footwear

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

April showers have finally left us, so as the sun is chasing away those last pesky lingering clouds, our most pressing style dilemma now becomes how to best set free our toes from the confines of their rain boot prisons. Whether you’re a simple flip-flops and flats kind of gal, or whether dressier wedges and strappy sandals are your thing, grab your brightest nail polish and rejoice, because your choices for summer footwear are just as diverse as they are for ice cream. And your one stop shop for all the flavors of summer? BC Footwear.

BC Footwear Gone Fishin' Sandal
With the bold style of a heel, but the comfort of a ballet flat, the Gone Fishin Sandal epitomizes playfulness and is nothing short of reelin’ good fun. Whether you choose to go for the louder peachy salmon or the more sophisticated black leather, these flirtatious flats are sure to add some spunk to a casual jean or legging.

BC Footwear Conch Flat Sandal
BC also takes its own spin off the latest craze – the gladiator sandal – with its Conch Flat and Iced Tea Sandals. These fascinating strappy sandals are worth every awkward tan line, for style that doesn’t sacrifice comfort. The shimmery elastic straps of the Iced Tea Sandals hug every curve of the foot to guarantee no slippage, and the minimal thick single buckled straps of the Conch secure and flatter the foot, adding up to a perfect mixture of youthfulness and elegance. Either style could class up a simple denim or linen pant or tone down a hot little dress or even complement a flowy sundress or summer short.
BC Footwear Grilled Cheese FlatAnd for the times those toes need to escape the limelight, there is the new Grilled Cheese Flat – a genius amalgam of boat shoe prep and golden goddess glam rolled into one comfortable and versatile loafer. This cool combination struts a fine line between understated and head-turner, so pair accordingly. Or if you prefer that your femininity be even less subtle, check out the Milkshake Mid Wedge, the apparent lovechild of a top-sider and a white rubber wedge.

Ahoy, matey! Now you’re ready to set sail for summer in style.
