Stilettos Heels

The allure of the Stiletto Heel

What woman doesn’t feel more feminine when walking in stilettos?  They make you walk with a purpose – you have to step carefully lest you land in a sidewalk crack or grating in the pavement – and they make a killer sound.  Face it, clogs and platforms can’t quite compare with the sound of stilettos clicking across the floor.

Stiletto heel

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

A shoe with a stiletto heel

A stiletto heel is a long, thin, high heel found on some boots and shoes, usually for women.

It is named after the stiletto dagger, the phrase being first recorded in the early 1930s.[1] Stiletto heels may vary in length from 2.5 centimetres (1 inch) to 25 cm (10 inches) or more if a platform sole is used, and are sometimes defined as having a diameter at the ground of less than 1 cm (slightly less than half an inch). Stiletto-style heels 5 cm (2.0 in) or shorter are called kitten heels.

Not all high slim heels merit the description stiletto. The extremely slender original Italian-style stiletto heels of the late 1950s and very early 1960s were no more than 5 mm (0.20 in) in diameter for much of their length, although the heel sometimes flared out a little at the top-piece (tip). After their demise in the mid-late 1960s, such slender heels were difficult to find until recently due to changes in the way heels were mass-produced. A real stiletto heel has a stem of solid steel or alloy. The more usual method of mass-producing high shoe heels, i.e. moulded plastic with an internal metal tube for reinforcement, does not achieve the true stiletto shape.  Read more…

Here is my stiletto entry in a recent Polyvore Group contest – which I won first place (woot!)

Cropped Flares

Can you pull off the trending cropped flares?

I have to admit that I don’t quite have the figure for this look – being on the curvy side and of limited stature, this look just doesn’t do me justice. That is not to say that they don’t flatter some figure types.  Make sure to “own” this look – make it a deliberate statement and pair them with just the right heel.

New Trend: Bell-Sleeve Dresses

Flared slacks and jeans have a trending partner with bell sleeve dresses and tops. Some have a slight taper and others flare out to ridiculous volumes. These have been in style before and I really like the feminine look they create.

5 Summer 2015 Trends That You Will Still Be Wearing This Fall

May 26, 2015 by Liza Graves

Flare Jeans

It’s the ’70s thing and also because the fashion gods don’t like us to get too comfy in one style of pants, as then we won’t buy anything, right? So skinnies are starting to meet their match. You can still wear your skinnies, but if you want to be fashion-forward in a way that you will be very mainstream soon, buy some flare jeans. If you feel too old for big flares, just start to embrace the boot cut look again.

Found on LuLu’s.com:

Friends Flare-ever Medium Wash High-Waisted Flare Jeans

  • Price: $78.00

Budget designs on RoseGal.com:

Fashionable Bleach Wash Color Spliced Flare Jeans For Women

Slimming Mid-Waisted Three-Buttons Women's Boot-Cut Jeans

Stylish Mid-Waisted Boot Cut Deep Blue Women's Jeans

The Chunky Heel

Again, it’s the ’70s vibe that just keeps getting stronger and stronger, and the chunky heel is here to stay, at least for a while. Embrace a style that you can get a lot of use from over many seasons. Forgo the platform for a less disco and more mainstream ’70s look.

Fay 1 Fuchsia High Heel Sandals

  • Price: $32.00

Longer Vest

Longer blazers are in for fall, and vests are in for summer. So marry the two and purchase a longer vest to wear now and into the cooler months as well.


Found on LuLu’s.com:

Black Swan Flurry of Fun Brown Faux Fur Vest

  • Price: $72.00

Brown Leather Belt

Just a good, plain, brown leather belt. You can wear it with your jeans, make a dress a bit more casual, wrap it over a blazer/cardigan if you work in an air-conditioned office or just tighten up a fuller blouse. But belts are in, and they are going to stay in.

Buy up your whites, as you’ll be wearing them come fall, as well! Tees, jeans, skirts, jackets … the whole “you really can wear white after Labor Day” thing is finally getting traction.

The Top Fall 2015 Trends From New York Fashion Week

by Hannah Weil McKinley 2/22/15

 The Glamorous Bohemian

This season, the boho vibe draws from the ’70s woman and the modern traveler. The shapes and fabrics are luxe — floaty hemlines, allover print, and embellishments galore.

Found on RoseGal.com:

Slimming Fashionable Style Stripes Round Neck High Waisted Sleeveless Chiffon Bohemian Dress For Women

  • Price: $15.81

Caped Crusader

It makes sense since the fashion crowd has been avoiding their sleeves for seasons now that designers are bypassing them all together with Fall’s caped silhouettes. Some are polished, while others, more statement-making. But regardless of pattern or color, the cut itself was made to catch the eye.

Down the Lane Grey Cape

  • Price: $65.00

Found on RoseGal.com:

Stand Collar Double Breasted Cape Coat For Women

  • Price: $19.36

 On the Fringe

Where we’ve seen fringed details creeping onto bags and shoes since last season, designers are using it much more heavy-handedly come Fall. Look for it giving skirts a sexy, skin-baring effect, upping the ante on evening wear or adding textural intrigue to our favorite knits.

Found on LuLu’s.com:

JOA Road West Tan Fringe Coat

  • Price: $127.00

 Gray Matters

This season’s color takeover was decidedly gray — and we’re not sad about it. The color looks particularly cool in monochromatic schemes — an easy one to pull off head to toe. And while it goes with everything already in your closet, it also helps dial down the sexy vibes of a strapless dress or a fitted sheath, while making sweaters and coats somehow feel even cozier. Now that’s versatility.

So Plaid

Plaid gets a revamp for Fall, making its return on cool-girl coats, trousers, and polished separates. It’s classic with a twist — and in some cases, far more prep-school rebel than schoolgirl uniform.
