Karl Lagerfeld once said “Black and white always looks modern, whatever that means”. But it’s true! I think in this sense, modern means that regardless of trends, the year, or season, black and white always feels current and classic. It’s a combination that will never let you down. That’s one of the reason why most of the items that I splurge on or invest in are black or white.
A black pair of booties are one of the items that are worth spending a little bit more money on. Once you find the right pair, you’ll want to live in them and they will become a staple in your wardrobe. These Stuart Weitzman KOKO booties are exactly what I’m talking about. I usually stray away from any booties that go above my low ankle (I’ve never found them flattering on me), but the soft leather hits at such a great spot, elongating my legs instead of shortening them.
I’m someone who would live in dresses 24/7 if it were practical. It’s hard for me to get as excited about a top and jeans as I do over a gorgeous dress. But every once in a while, I find a piece that changes my mind and has me switching up my ways. This bell sleeve top did just that when I tried in on for the first time. I’ve been pairing it with everything from boyfriends jeans to trousers to these old black coated skinnies.
Every fall season I invest in a new pair of boots. Last year it was my Stuart Weitzman Highland Boots (that I loved so much, I bought in two colors- last seen here, here, here, here, here, here and here) and this year it’s my leather KOKO booties. I can already see them with so many looks transitioning into fall. You can check out more of the Stuart Weitzman Fall Collection in the video below featuring Gisele.
