Our pieces lend themselves to styling for any context. Footwear is perhaps the deciding factor for the occasion of which an outfit is appropriate. It alters the air of our silk slips and allows for endless possibilities putting together an outfit. A consistent theme throughout our campaign shoots is a white slouchy boot complete with a subtle kitten heel. This style elicits a lot of comments regarding the source, which was discovered by our Founder and Creative Director in Uterqüe, Spain. She swears she’s never been able to find another pair like them. This specific shoe has inspired us to write about the essential styles we always keep close-by.
The Classic Sneaker
The footwear of the moment offers endless options. To simplify your choices, we recommend a sneaker with neutral tones, a sure guarantee that will go with everything in your wardrobe. As sneaker styles seem to keep coming, it’s important to choose a classic pair that you won’t get bored with by next season. It’s also essential to be mindful of where, how and with what your shoes are being made. Veja makes timeless sneakers from recycled cotton, ethically sourced wild rubber and low environmental impact leather. A sneaker to feel good in and about. Paired with a 90s slip, you’re ready for the airport or a walk around the neighborhood.
The Effortless Sandal
A sandal can take your slip from beach side casual to laid back glamour, both of which are great options. For a refined luxe feeling, and to feel like you’re walking on clouds, we love Tibi’s furry sandals. They come in many different colours that can be coordinated with your slip dresses. For more practical purposes, Suicoke has you covered with a sleek utilitarian look and thick, comfortable soles for hiking or running errands that makes your slip sporty and functional.
The Sophisticated Mule
For the work day, a sleek heeled mule will dress up your slip. In this this pair from Bottega Veneta, no one will know you cleaned your house in it the same dress the weekend before. The modern square toe and crinkled leather keeps them interesting, we’d also pair with the relaxed blazer.
The Statement Boot
Transseasonal dressing is an art, and our favorite past-time. Between our offices in Canada and Australia, we are always adjusting to different forecasts. This is where a pair of tall boots become essential as they invite you to experiment with layering over the slip. Tall boots replace the need for tights, and with a boyfriend shirt and chunky knit overtop, you’re set for the colder temperatures.
