STYLE FILES: Black and Gold goes Casual

As the burnt loose ends of summer give way to crisper, cooler weather, the time has come to revisit our wardrobes, doing away with the old and making room for the new. We can hardly contain our excitement over the myriad of great footwear styles hitting the shelves this Autumn and naturally can’t help falling further in love with Fall.

With ankle booties galore and taller, knee high styles coming around, it seems impossible to choose just a few! Of course, we love the versatility of mid calf options, and the inspiring rain proof styles making their way into our stores. Now, what to do about how to choose?

Well, a great way to revamp your wardrobe is to identify a trend that speaks to your personal aesthetic, and build around that–always staying true to your unique sense of style. Like you, some of us at DNA have decided that Fall 2013 will be the year that we glam things up a bit–particularly our casual choices.

Yes! Informal ensembles can–and should– be functionally fashion forward. The easiest way to do it: BLACK & GOLD. Yes, Ladies, black and gold.

The epitome of sophisticated refinement and classic glamour, black and gold accents will make all the difference in going from drab to fab, in no time, flat. Trust, there is no need to be flash-tastic or over the top–subtlety and simplicity is key.

Inspired by Vera Wang’s Fall 2013 romantically soft rendition of the black and gold trend, we set out to reimagine a versatile look that goes from day to play with finesse. To recreate this look, start with a high waisted, floral trouser (preferably with gold flowers) and throw a black blazer over a black or white top of your choice (tucked in, of course). Add a super simple metallic gold tote–we don’t want too many details and buckles; the gold color is enough to make a statement. Finally, our favorite part–slip into these gorgeous (uber affordable!) gold capped, black high heel Luna¬†booties by¬†Wanted.

Happy Shopping, Glamazons!

Love, LS.Granados
