4 Shoe Styles Every Girl Needs

13 June 2016, by Forrest Chase

Chocolate and diamonds aside, we are pretty sure that shoes are a girl’s best friend. However, sometimes the relationship gets difficult (especially when your shoe collection is over-flowing and it becomes difficult to shut your wardrobe door). Whether you are only beginning to build your shoedrobe, or you are in need of a collection cull to get back-to-basics – there are 4 non-negotiable shoes every girl needs in her style rotation.

The Sex-And-The-City Shoe

Carrie Bradshaw altered the laws of fashion. She made tutus work in Times Square, and brought pink into the workplace. Channel your inner unexpected-and-quirky Carrie with a shoe addition that stands out on the sidewalk (and hopefully catches the eye of your very own Mr Big). Think iridescent colours, unexpected prints or big bling. Our pick? These Febronia embellished pumps from Nine west.

Chunky heeled boot

A menagerie of cute shoes for summer; a sole pair of ancient wellington boots for winter - it’s a common seasonal dilemma many women face. Show your winter outfits a little bit of love by investing in a pair of architectural, chunky-heeled Travers boots from Ninewest . They will suit and accentuate everything you wear in the colder months. Yes, everything. Even your trusty 1980s duffle coat.

Night-Outers

Little black dress? Check. Freshly coiffed hair? Check. A pair of shoes so cute that they double as a conversation starter? Check. With a manageable heel height & secure, criss-cross straps Ninewest’s Taragon are ideal for elevating any outfit for an unplanned night out. No matter what happens, we promise you won’t pull a Cinderella and leave one of these behind. They are way too pretty to be forgotten.

The errand-running flats

It’s 6am – you’re mentally going through your upcoming day with a mix of anticipation and ‘oh god, what have I got myself into’. Heels won’t do, you need to be agile – balancing a to-go latte in one hand and a meticulously prepared report in the other. Enter stage left: Novo Cambridge loafers – the perfect mix of function, comfort and Parisian chic.

1 Jacket, 3 Ways

27 April 2016, by Forrest Chase

Whether real or faux, leather is the ultimate transition fabric and we aren’t the only ones thinking this. From Gigi to Jourdan, the world’s top supermodels know how to sport a leather jacket autumn through spring. Here are our top 3 ways to incorporate your jacket into your wardrobe rotation.

1. Toughen up

Gigi’s personal street-style is on par with the fashion she showcases on the runway. Her take on the leather jacket means business; studs, spikes and a serious stance that screams look-but-don’t-touch.

2. Chill out

Tilda Lindstam channels girl-next-door-cool with her no fuss leather jacket. Thrown on effortlessly over a simple tee and pair of black skinnies, this outfit is perfect for coffee dates, chill nights out or late afternoon strolls.

3. Get girly

Just like Jourdan Dunn, you can toughen up a sweet floral dress with the addition of a leather jacket. It’s also a great way to bring your summer wardrobe into the colder months – layer your jacket over your favourite playsuits, miniskirts and maxi-dresses.

Summer has finished. What, I hear all the bronzed beach-loving people say, It can’t be!

Whether you love warm weather or prefer the thermostat under 30 degrees, the seasons have changed once again and the months of knits, scarves and hot chocolates are inevitably upon us. But while you pack away your bikini and bring out your woollen coat, don’t forget to start thinking about your feet (who are often so unfairly forgotten about). Bring your fashion A-game this winter with the help of these stylish, comfortable and oh-so-functional boots from NOVO shoes.

The HARVEY boot: The vibe isn’t quite boho – but its close. Pair with a set of ripped jeans, and you’ve got your festival outfit sorted. Pair with some black culottes and you’re ready to rock the board meeting. How’s that for versatility.

The NEWTOWN boot: Move over Little Black Dress, there’s a new wardrobe staple in town. The LBB (Little Black Bootie) can be teamed with any outfit to add a little bit of edge.
