At DNA Footwear, we’ve been crazy about ankle strap sandals for a few weeks now.
Can you really blame us? We can hardly help it now that we have a parade of chic, strapped & cuffed new arrivals coming in for Spring. While it’s still too cold in New York City to pound the pavement in summery ankle strap sandals, a lush, tropical island is the perfect setting for sporting this coveted spring trend. Combined with creamy metallics, fresh florals, and magical mint, the only accessory ankle strap sandals truly need are sun kissed skin and a balmy breeze.
As promised in our previous post on styling ankle strap sandals with pastels and metallics, our Secret Garden set draws it’s inspiration from an earthier approach to incorporating pastels into our Spring ensembles.
Reminiscing of a garden by the sea, we brought together powdery turquoise with grounding peach florals and tan.
To play up the boho-chic vibe we chose DV by Dolce Vita‘s woven pointy toe Geno ankle strap sandal in Honey Leather. The sleek, color blocked Abby split wedge espadrille in Mint by French Connection plays nice for day or night, pairing perfectly with the floral purse & shorts, just as well as with the mint leather pencil skirt and strapless swimsuit.
Muted metallics bring the look together: a shimmering understated cream camisole glams up the floral short and heightens the appeal of the front slit leather skirt; the coppery, wide brim straw hat adds intrigue, playing up your mystique with glamorous functionality–shading you from the sun as well as prying eyes mesmerized by your entrancing glow.
Happy Travels, Glamazons!
