New York Fashion Week started yesterday- on my 30th birthday! You can be sure that I’m going to feature plenty of galleries sharing the best runway collections, however I wanted to celebrate September with a line that I’m super excited about. This includes French Designer, Catherine Malandrino‘s debut for Kohl’sDesigNation capsule line, which hits stores on September 27th!
The classic silhouettes & flirty details make this one of my favorite designer collaborations for the mainstream consumer. I love pops of Parisian inspiration, especially the typography & Eiffel Tower homages. Also, there are plenty of modern accents that make this extra special, including menswear-inspired blouses, boat-neck cuts, luxe fabrics, & a neutral color palette.
I’ve been working so much this summer that I haven’t given my heels & wedges the attention they deserve. Now that it’s September, I know there’s not much more time for them left; however, earlier this summer, I made an investment in a trendy, yet neutral ballet flat, which is perfect for all aspects of my life: 2 jobs & school. This purchase was the Brash Chaos stud flat ($16.99) from Payless(see below), which are marked down from their original $27.99 price tag.
I also checked out what was going on recently with Steve Madden‘s summer clearance, which is how I found the KSTUDD flat ($19.99) that offers a doubly stylish stud detail & is also reduced from the original $49.95 price.
I’m already picturing these with skinny jeans & a tunic sweater when running errands, a sheath dress & cardigan for the office, & a printed blouse with trousers for meeting the girls for brunch. How would you style these shoes? Which brand would you pick? Do you like the studded trend on shoes & accessories this fall?
