How To Style Chokers

 

 

Jewelry is like the perfect spice – it always complements what’s already there.  – Diane Von Furstenberg

 

I LOVE chokers. I think they are darling and can honestly be worn with practically anything. However, when I first noticed that they were coming back in style, I was a bit hesitant to jump on the train. My reasoning was that, to me, it seemed as though chokers were primarily worn by those who embraced the ‘grunge’ look.

I think the grunge look is amazing. I wish I could pull it off, but it just isn’t me. That being said, I LOVE to pull pieces from that style and incorporate them in ways that fit my individual style best. Chokers are one of those items.

I have since learned that chokers truly can be intertwined with nearly any style and even though they are popular with the grunge look, there are plenty of other ways to wear them as well.

 

Tips for styling chokers:

 

  • Chokers work best with lower necklines (v-neck, scoop-neck, sweetheart) NOT turtle-neck. Halter tops or dresses don’t work as well either since the fabric comes up high.
  • Most chokers look best with casual wear but depending on the type of choker, can also be worn with formal attire.
  • Black is a great color to wear with chokers. Most chokers I’ve seen are black and tying it together with a shirt that is the same color, is a great way to create a simple and classic look.

 

My favorite way to wear them personally is with a tie-dye shirt and denim shorts. I am a huge fan of the late 90’s/early 00’s coming back and that is certainly a way to welcome it.

How To Style And Care For Converse

Converse are a classic shoe. They have been around for years and worn by probably just about everyone. You can purchase them in just about any color, and are relatively cheap to buy. That being said, it’s not always easy to find an outfit to match them.

Why? Converse have somewhat of a longstanding personality and stigma of their own. You see them frequently in movies or on tv with a very casual outfit, usually jeans and t-shirt. They are casual shoes that have remained iconic for a long time. However, nowadays it is much more common to see people styling converse with dresses and skirts! Which really leaves us the question as to what don’t they go with?

Of course you can wear anything you please and especially in this time where pretty much anything goes. This is just an article to give you some ideas as to how to wear them!

 

Tips on what to wear with Converse:
  • Casual wear! Ripped jeans, jeans, casual shorts, band t-shirts etc.
  • White Converse are the cleanest (but get dirty the quickest) and seem to look the best with more formal attire.
  • I love Converse with kind of a lazy-day look, and try not to match them too well with an outfit (Teal shirt, teal shoes, or purple shirt, purple shoes).
  • Converse with overalls is such a cute way to fashion them as well.
  • Try pairing the shoe with black leggings and an oversized sweatshirt for a cute and comfy look!

 

Tips on how to care for your Converse:
  • Do NOT machine wash or dry. That ruins the material.
  • Use a mild soap (using a strong soap can fade the color on the shoes).
  • Warm water and a washcloth is the best way to clean and care for loved Converse. <3
  • If you get them wet, let them dry before wearing them again.
  • Don’t submerge them in water. It ruins the glue that holds the shoe together.

How to style open-toed ankle boots

 

The Universe bends for those with good intentions – Dove Cameron

 

Um, so how in the world do you style open-toed ankle boots?

 

With summer just days away, I wanted to share my favorite way to style open-toed ankle boots!

Though they look great with just about anything, the easiest and best way to show them off is with a nice pair of skinny jeans. Here are three ways that they look GREAT and will have you looking as though you just stepped off the runway!

1 – Rolling your jeans up just above the boot. 

This is such a cute and casual way to dress down your outfit. If you are longing to wear heels but don’t want to overdress for the occasion, this is perfect.

2- Folding your jeans up just above the boot.

What I love about this method is it keeps the outfit neutral. Meaning, if you want to dress it up, it still looks classy and neat, or if you want to dress it down, folding will keep them from looking too over the top formal.

3 – Tucking your jeans into the boot. 

Personally, this is my favorite way to wear open-toed ankle boots! This style gives off a neat and clean look that makes the shoe stand out.

 

Tips: 

 

  • I love leggings just as much as the next girl but when styling high heeled ankle boots like these, I’ve found that they look tremendously better with jeans. The rough texture of the pants makes the boots shine!
  • Long pants look best! I know with summer around the corner it is getting hawwt, but they tend to appear more flattering with long bottoms.
  • Try them out with different color jeans to create different looks! Distressed denim is a plus!

 

Wondering where to wear?

 Open-toed ankle boots are PERFECT for semi-formal events, gatherings, reunions, clubs, GNO, and work!

Crushing on my shoes?

You’re in luck! I purchased mine from Cathy Jean, but I found a similar pair on Amazon for even less. Buy them here!

 

I know putting together outfits can be tricky, and especially if you are charting new territory and giving heels a try for the first time. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to say hello on the ‘contact us’ page.
