RED TO TOE | 50 PIECES TO SHOP RIGHT NOW #ANDRIASDOSECURATES

static1.squarespace.jpg

Red-to-toe and oh it feels so good to be right (hashtag #nevernotloling).
Remember this?
Kinda tapping myself on the back for this prediction as I LOVE red and I can't wait to wear it more this season. 
We've already talked about how most of the big guns went red frenzy at FW! Now, brands and stores have stocked up with all red everything so the options are endless - yoohoo!
I know it might seem 'terrifying', bold and maybe too risky and I won't (completely)disagree with you but there is always a fine line on how to do it right. If done correctly it can evoke romanticism and confidence. Don't call me crazy but I think it is very wearable once you get it right!

Always try to mix different styles, textures and shades of red and keep everything else low profile (i.e. jewellery). Perhaps you want to break the monochrome with accessories in another colour?
Here, I did my reds with the off-white trainers to tone it down but I would happily wear red shoes if I had the right pair back then.

Anyhow.. shall we go to the fun part?
 I have rounded up 50 of my favourite pieces now in the market ranging from 20 to 2000 euros.
So.. cap ou pas cap?
Well.. if you go for 'pas cap', then I would say try to incorporate red as an accessory - shoes, bag or jewellery, have your pick.

HOW TO DRESS-ES, THE FUN WAY

Wearing: silk strapless dress by Blanc Studio

Well.. not that new in the trendland but definitely the strongest it's been in the hood.. dress over pants.
Deconstructed shirting, button-downs with super-long and oversized puffy sleeves, frilly Victorian florals, robes and slips in every length, shape and fabric - whether you wear them on their own with flat sandals and trainers or work this layering trick up, pretty dresses are the thing this season. More points for extra layering; try a logo tee or a shirt to get the proportions right and voila - fun fun fun!
Consider the pairing a clever answer to Spring's still chilly-but-not-cold weather, or a fresh way to start wearing those stunning frocks you bought for Summer and couldn't wait to wear!

Meet your star buy for the new S/S season aka the game changer! 
If you were planing to invest in just one piece for Spring, let it be this - the always on call - classic wardrobe staple now reinvented; see huge buckles, dramatic sleeves (Simone Rocha for life), new fabrics being key (think patent) and some power shoulder play (Oh Balenciaga!).  Rain or shine, these pieces will turn heads wherever and however you drift!
Whether you wear it with trainers, heels, over jeans, go sleek with silk pants, layer it to dress down your evening dress, or even cinched with a corset or belt for two trends in one action, the trench goes from meh to major this season!

THE 2-INCH CRAZE

 
a4c570f9fa38cd5a77d6e0a8df07785c.jpg

It took me some time to process and finally sit down and write this article but I am now ready to confess!
2-inch craze and I plead guilty - OBSESSED - well it’s kind of hard not to be with the pairs that are currently around.

Over the past few years I’ve kinda given up on heels for my everyday get-up and go. I used to trot the streets in my sky-high pumps on a 7am - 7am and I could not be defeated by anything; in fact I’d roll my eyes at women who changed from trainers into boring mid-heels in the cab or lift.

But things change darling! Over the years, I slowly found myself feeling turned off by them and flat-shoe options suddenly started to look amazingly appealing. Loafers, trainers, slippers et al, won my fashion heart (and wallet). And now I am all about the 2-inch do. Don't take me wrong, I am still sold on occasion by some fancy sky rockets and do rule them when appropriate but all I can say is that they definitely don't sit on my cupboard's front row.

 

Mid heels made their first appearance last S/S and they are still going strong. First, it was all about Chanel’s block heel slingback, which Karl revamped for the first time since Gabrielle’s era at the brand, then the Celine ballerina pump (aka glove shoe), Valentino’s Rockstuds, then the Mary Janes and now it is all about J'Adior!

You'll find me drooling over everything from GUCCI, Lallo and his shoes are from another planet and my latest brand crush - THE ATTICO.
Ah.. and I am all about the mule - 2 trends in one (more on that soon)!
Gimme Gimmeeeee!

TRENDING NOW: STATEMENT EARRINGS

 
 

Blame it on Phoebe, Alessandro and the rest of the gang for bringing the earlobe back to attention. Earring mash-ups and designers combining several styles in one look, the statement earring needs to sit front row in your wardrobe's myst-haves this season. Whether you are all about the minimal look or like the louder than loud, this pizza is big enough for everyone! You can elevate a mix & match do or have a helping hand for the 'I have nothing to wear' morning struggle. A pair of Levis, a tee and one of them 'chandeliers' and you are ready to go!

LET'S TALK ABOUT VELVET

Photos via Pinterest, Tumblr, Oracle Fox, Natargeorgiou.

Don't say I didn't warn you. Velvet obsession doesn't stop at the lux interiors of your grandma's 70's sofa. From Vetements, to Saint Laurent, Philip Lim and Valentino (and almost everybody really) velvet has us purring with satisfaction. Giddy up! Whether it is a matching suit, a dress, shoes or accessories, velvet rules the hood this season. At least in my book. And Vogue's. I think most of the street style gang agrees too. 
Ultra luxe par excellence pour moi, I am already thinking layering over layering and back to maximalism it is!

Girls, your call - either start roaming the stores or start digging in mummy's closet. Or granny's.. that's even better. I bet you will definitely find a piece to help you get on the right page.

Let me know if you find anything else worth knowing about. I am all over the place -  the more the merrier.
