I consider myself a trendy person, but when the "dad sneaker" hit the runways, I had no intention of jumping on that bandwagon. OK, it's been a while and the oversized, sporty sneaker is still going strong. The sneaker trend has been modified and the color schemes have gone wild, but the chunky sneaker is here to stay (at least for another season).
I did it! I purchased myself a pair of dad sneakers AND I love them. I went with the beloved Balenciaga Triple S Sneakers (available at mytheresa.com) in white. The name refers to the three soles supporting the body and giving it a chunky look. This is why they're HEAVY! If you're tryna loose weight or tone your body, wear a dad sneaker.
I love the look of these sneakers - they're comfortable and the neutral color scheme goes with everything. Triple S sneakers run large, so I recommend sizing down. I'm usually a size 5.5 or 6 sneaker and I purchased these in size 5. I'm obsessed with my Balenciaga sneakers.
I HAVE TO HAVE this Burberry London Football Scarf (available at Farfetch). The super-cropped sweater is the perfect layer. You can don this football scarf over a t-shirt, button down or sweater. The stripes will elongate and flatter your figure and the colors are neutral and perfect for Fall/Winter.
I love Karl Ikonik t-shirts. They're excellent quality and fit perfectly. I've gone through a few Ikonik styles (I keep shrinking them by accident) and love the Karl Ikonik Rhinestone T-shirt. You can pair this t-shirt with joggers or wear a fitted size with a skirt and heels for a night out.
Be careful washing this t-shirt, cause the rhinestones fall off easily. I'd recommend a gentle hand wash and lay flat to dry. I'm already on my second rhinestone t-shirt.
I'm a huge Chloé fan - it is my most anticipated fashion show each season. I usually blow the fashion budget on Chloé AND these modern rubber boots are a must have. The Chloé PVC Betty Rain Boot in santal green was made for me. The khaki Wellington boot has an oversized eggplant heel - it's the perfect color combination. These are going on my Christmas wish list.
One of my latest brand obsessions is Spell & The Gypsy Collective. The hippie-like brand is inspired by vintage treasures and I LOVE IT! Spell & The Gypsy apparel and accessories are suitable for Spring/Summer, but there were a few pieces that are perfect for my Fall line-up.
The Eagleback Matinee Jacket (not pictured here) is one of my favorites. I also had to have the Spell & The Gypsy Collective Gypsy Traveller Tote Bag. This sturdy tote dons the brand name and an eagle in flight print. It also has a detachable scarf. This tote could use a base for structure (I like structured bags), but I love it anyway.
The Axel Tweed Bucket Hat by Maison Michel is the perfect accessory to brighten up a Fall wardrobe. The gold embellishment goes nicely with the Fall jewel-tone trend. AND the bucket silhouette looks cute on everyone.
