Getaway Trends 2014 | Styling the Pastel Trend

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Winter days got you feeling grey?
Slather on the sunscreen and dig up your swimsuits, sunny days made for stunner shades are a trip to the tropics away!

When packing for your tropical escape, break out the mints, light pinks and powdered blues–nothing soothes the sole quite like stylish shoes in pastel hues.

Inspired by the surreal softness of the pastel color palette, designers like Jason Wu, Burberry & Prabal Gurung lit up their Spring 2014 runways with versatile applications of under-saturated hues, kicking off the pastel trend.

Taking a cue from these fashion gurus, we’ve curated a pastel inspired getaway guide to packing light, so it’s easy to go from day to nightTo recreate what we imagine a pastel breeze could be, we chose minty green to complement peachy corals and pastel pinks.

We picked up a chiffon printed short in a dreamy green and pink floral, then paired them with coral elements and mint green accessories. The Gigi Flat T-Strap Sandal in Light Green by Sam Edelman pulls the casual outfit together and complements the blush party dress, once you’re ready to slip your soles out of the chic & strappy pointy toe Zahara high heel sandal by BCBGeneration. Of course, the sleek Zahara ankle strap stiletto sandal, shown in Warm Sand (also available in Black) pairs phenomenally well with the shorts and crop top, bringing a casual ensemble way up a notch, effortlessly.  

Mixing and matching is the key to easy breezy, on trend styling. For more fashion advice on styling with pastels, check back in to the DNA Footwear blog for the next post in our getaway series about ankle strap flats

Shoes for Summer Concerts: Fashion Meets Protection

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

The best part of summer music is that concerts often migrate from within the confines of tiny venues to the vast, sunny open air of outdoor shows and music festivals. From East Coast to West Coast, from a Central Park concert series to Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival and everything in between, music enthusiasts everywhere are moving their parties outside. Soak in the sun and absorb your favorite music at the same time without worrying about fashion by checking out our top picks for summer concert footwear.

The key to finding the most concert-friendly footwear is to seek out a combination of edge and comfort. You’ll also need to keep your feet cool while offering your toes protection from a careless or overly-enthusiastic crowd. If it seems impossible to dream up a shoe that embodies all of these qualities at once, look to our Seychelle’s Comp Flat Shoe for inspiration. Equal parts charming and protective, the comp flat shoe projects a delicate vibe while boasting a tough leather exterior, ready to save your toes from wayward dancing feet.

Here’s What Spring is Bringing! New Miz Mooz Shoes!

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Uh oh! It’s March already? February just goes so fast. But March means it’s allllllllmost spring, and that means that the spring shoe collections are arriving! Last week we featured a shiny, embellished, gorgeous evening shoe by Badgely Mischka; this week we’re going to take a look at something a little more every-day wearable: Miz Mooz’s ‘Heather’ mid-heel sandal.

These are really a perfect sandal for this the spring 2011 clothing collections that are in stores now. There’s a revival of the maxi-dress and long, flowing skirt; blousy tops with batik prints, and plenty of shorts are hitting the shelves! The Miz Mooz Heather sandal will work well with all of the above, and keep you comfortable at the same time. The medium heel is easy to walk in, the leather straps won’t cut into your feet, and there’s enough padding to keep your feet comfy all day. The studded straps add just a little extra visual interest and shine. The Whiskey brown color is my favorite, because it’s so versatile and will work with jeans, light summer colors and white clothes equally well, but the Heather sandal also comes in a lighter tan, black, and this absolutely fantastic bright green.
