Sneak Peek at Fall 14 Runway Trends

I know it’s still scorching outside and Summer is in full force but things will soon be cooling off and Fall will be here before we know it! Runways are flooded with the latest trends in oversized coats, plaids, leopard, lilac, tall hats and beautiful rich hues.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons so I am always anxious to see what is on the docket for this season. Trends u will see alot of are oversized coats, furs, rich colors as well as pastels and you will see runways try to push the envelope with western style hats and shearling whether its a coat, vest or bomber jacket.

The sky is the limit this upcoming season- let’s check it out!

Fur, fur and more fur- runways were bundling up in the bold colors and patterns of fur giving a luxe and glamorous appeal

One of our favorites- Leopard!!!! We love leopard whether you are wearing it on your body, your feet or carrying it over your shoulder this trend is a favorite all year around. This season it boldly lit up the runways and we were ecstatic and already have this trend all over our website for your feet and your handbag. :) Leopard gives  solids a stylish lift or it can be the spotlight all on its own.

Wrap style coats! I am in love with this style because there is something so sophisticated and sleek about wrap coats. To me it reminds me of a vintage, Katherine Hepburn appeal that elongates your silhouette and gives an empowering feel to your ensemble.  It kinda makes me want to scream, “I am woman!!”

Extreme turtlenecks! Large sweaters with unique and high necklines are going to be the rage this season. This look gives you a svelte look while actually keeping you warm making it a great trend to transition from Fall to Winter.

Shearling is a trend all fashion mags and runways are covered in. You will see shearling accented on necklines or jackets or in coats all its own, vests, shawls and bomber jackets. Be on the lookout for shearling to take over the Fall season!

Cape Coats- are a must. This is another one of my favorite runway looks.  This style is very Audrey Hepburn’esqe and I love how this vintage style is turned into a modern high- fashion look for the everyday woman. This look is classic, fashion forward and gives your Fall style an effortlessly chic spin.

Plaid is a trend you will see everywhere- apparel, shoes, handbags- everywhere! This preppy style can serve as a bold statement or understated accents all season long.

Hats, hats and more hats! This trend pushes the envelope with its western style tall hat appeal but designers are raving about this hot new accessory. This is for the woman who likes to keep her look on the cutting edge of style!

Jet-setting in Style

Summer is in full effect and the weather is screaming for a vacation!!!!! Whether you are hitting the beaches, city sights or crossing international borders you want to look and feel your best! Whenever I plan a vacation the first thing I think of is what will I wear and how I can make it comfy while staying on trend from plane to ground and everyday after!

I put together some jet-setting inspiration boards for you to help you pack your style without forgetting your essentials!

When you hit the plane, layers are always important. If you travel enough you know they keep the temperature like an icebox on an airplane so you want to be sure you have layers that are chic together and if you de-layer upon arrival. We paired our airplane layers with the funkiness of Whisp! We love that no matter your airplane style she gives you the fashion forward appeal!

July Nosara

Heading to warmer weather?  Then Shorestar is a MUST! She is ultra comfortable for all day comfort, but has neutral tone beading that gives you a stylish twist while being just understated enough to go with every outfit in your bag! Shorestar is effortlessly fabulous!

If your hitting the beaches but still going from indoors to outdoors Nosara is your traveling companion. With her metallic shimmer she stays vaca festive, but throw on a stylish cover up after hitting the beach and you could go shopping or out to lunch easily!

Lastly we have the sleek and sophisticated Blanche flat. She is fabulous no matter the pattern or hue because her pointed-toe silhouette already gives your get-a-way ensemble an ultra femme appeal. We paired her with high-waisted shorts, flowy chiffon and vacation ready accessories. We love Blanche because she can take you from day to night without a second thought so you can keep your feet comfortable without lacking your Summer style!

Happy travels!!

Stars, Stripes and July 4th Fashion

Our festive and patriotic celebration of the big U. S of A is right around the corner! You are racking your closet for the perfect ensemble to show your country pride. Some of you want to be somewhat subtle with your red, white and blue while others want to be bold covering themselves head to toe in stars and stripes.

We have put together a few outfits for various occasions you might be attending over the extended holiday weekend. If you have any of the basic staples of white, blue or red in your wardrobe you can make a killer look, that is fashion forward, without lacking the festive spirit or breaking the bank.

We know you won’t miss out on fireworks so we created a look that is versatile, whether you are in your backyard or visiting the local community spot for fireworks. I love how this look is comfy and casual with our Shorestar sandal, but with a dressier necklace and purse takes your look up a notch for your evening outings!

shorestar

Some of you may take your extended weekend to the max buy booking a July 4th vacation! If you are hitting the beaches or lakes you can still sport your patriotic hues! We paired this flirty and feminine skirt with our J.Renee’ Evon. To me, this shoe embodies all things you would want for a vacation staple- comfort, style, and a sexy lift. Not to mention the gorgeous red hue is spirited but also fashion forward.

evon

If you are like me you might be grilling and cooking and having all your friends and family over the holiday or going to the house that has the best view of the fireworks! In that case comfort is a must so grab your white staple skinny jeans, in case you are chasing little ones around, and add your holiday stripe top to show your pride! We wanted to add flair to our causal 4th look so we added the playful and eye-catching, Geo, in denim! This shoe is casual enough for a friend’s house but stylish enough to make a lasting impression.

geo

You might be keeping it super casual for the holiday and packing some sandwiches and making a picnic in your favorite fireworks watching spot. Go for casual, comfortable and sitting on the ground type of outfits. We kept it simple here with a colored short, solid tee and our Barreron. This red sandal must-have will make your patriotic statement with its bold red color, trendy embellishment and soft suede comfort.

picnic

This last board is nautical inspired! If you are lucky enough to own or know someone who owns a boat I suggest spending all day and all weekend in that spot! Boat parties are the best because you can lounge all day in your striped bathing suit soaking the rays and then you can turn around and dress up for cocktails and the evening festivities! I chose Neda for our shoe highlight and a fit and flare blue and white dress because of their  ultra femme yet comfy silhouettes! What a perfect view to watch the skies light up in celebration of this amazing country!

Happy red, white and blue!!!

1 Trend 3 Ways- Croco Print

One of our favorite new trending prints is donning our slingbacks and handbags giving a look of luxe and sophistication- croco print! This print is HUGE and will be huge into the cooler weather. This is a print that immediately takes your look up a notch by adding a luxurious and high class appeal to any ensemble. This print can take you to the movies or to an important meeting at work.

Check out some of the ways we have styled this fabulous new trend!

First up we have the Alaric pointed-toe slingback. This gem comes in various hues and boasts an innovative silhouette with its curved heel. This heel can be a staple or make a glamorous statement all by itself. I love the way it can polish a comfy jersey dress for work, add a sexy twist to your girl-outing romper or give you a chic finish to your skinny jeans. This footwear print is nothing short of fabulous!

If you thought the shoes were amazing check out the glamor of the oversized croco printed handbag. I am OBSESSED with this sleek bag and would carry this no matter the occasion because it oozes high fashion all while holding my essentials on top of my not so essentials. This bag has room for everything while giving you a runway ready appeal whether shopping with friends, on vacation or at work!

Skylar Shines for Summer Weddings

Summertime means warm weather and the ever fabulous wedding season.  We know whether you are star of the show, Mother of the bride, the faithful bridesmaid or the guest you want to look your best at these fun “I Do” festivities.

Personally I have been the bridesmaid literally 20 times, the guest and the bride and no matter which role I was in SHOES were always the question on my mind. When your wearing a gorgeous dress and in the spotlight your shoes have to match up to the challenge. This is why we have chosen our beloved Skylar as this season’s go-to wedding shoe. Even one of our very own JR shoe designers donned this gem  for her dress and her bridesmaids at her wedding.

I am in love with Skylar because it really is the Cinderella shoe and is so effortlessly glamorous that it can be the perfect finishing touch for the bride or the statement spotlight whether you are attending, a bridesmaid or the Mother of the bride or groom.

Skylar is elegantly crafted in an ultra feminine silhouette with dance fabric so it has the hint of shimmer needed for a special occasion, with a slight hint of a bow with a sparkling rhinestone embellishment giving it the luxe look of royalty to finish. This gorgeous pump could standout out as your something blue or statement color in its jewel tone shades or it can be subtly chic in metallics of pewter, golds and silvers.

Check out some of our wedding inspiration boards for Skylar and Summer weddings!

Gearing up for Summer Fashion

Summer is around the corner and runways and celebs are rocking the brights, the bolds, the prints, the patterns and even softer hues for the warmer weather! Summer styles are easy to transition into from Spring because you can still sport your floral prints, neon sweaters and neutral hues.

This Summer we saw the runways filled with bold and mixed prints, graphic shorts, high waisted pants, structured silhouettes, menswear looks and gorgeous bathing suites. The great thing about Summer styles is that most you can already transition into!

Check out some of the runway styles that we are obsessing over!

First up, mixed and bold patterns. These are chic, sophisticated and right on the edge of high fashion.  I love how they are paired together in a pants suit, retro-classic dress or glam evening ensemble. Prints are for the confident woman who loves to stay on the cutting edge of fashion.

summerfashionprintsBesides these 2 celebs being fabulous on their own accord they are already spotted sporting their Summer favorites. I am in love with the simplicity of the red pencil dress and metallic touches and how Reese took her neon sweater and paired it with graphic short which is such an effortless and easy look to pull together from different seasons for the current one.

summerfashionThere is nothing more clean, crisp and elegant than whites. They are always a Summer favorite and we adored how they were styled with structured blazers for a modern appeal as well as featured with mesh and lace for a more delicate look.

Blumarine-Spring-Summer-2014-Milan-Fashion-Week-02

Neutrals are the perfect transitional hues. You can easily use your Spring staples to pair with upcoming season’s trends and create a flawless look like these fabulous ladies. There is really enough said with how chic this look is.

summerfashion2This next look is inspired with a menswear appeal with oversized blouses and innovative blazers. This is a breezy way to jazz up your work attire and push your fashion sense to the limit.

Paul-Smith-Spring-Summer-2014-London-Fashion-Week-08

This look is beyond easy to put together and to jazz up. Take your basic solids and old faithful jeans and pair with a FABULOUS shoe and you have anything but an ordinary look for your everyday attire.

summerfashionjeansGreens are going to be a hit this season and we couldn’t be happier because this color looks fabulous on anyone and any skin color whether heading to lunch with friends, a special occasion or hitting the beach!

Michael-Kors-Spring-Summer-2014-New-York-Fashion-Week-14

Ladylike silhouettes are a must with their curve hugging structure complimenting all the right areas, this look is for the classy and elegant woman. You can take a suit or shift dress and belt it to create a flattering shape and feminine appeal that can go from work to weekend effortlessly.

Oscar-de-la-Renta-Spring-Summer-2014-New-York-Fashion-Week-05

Talk about glamorous when you hit the beaches- these bathing suits are all the rage. These retro inspired high waisted bathing suits give compliment to a woman’s shape and we adore the intricately designed overcoat to make this look even more gorgeous!

Reds! This is another color that anyone can wear and everyone should! Red shorts, pants, tops, dresses, bags, shoes and even lips will be all the rage all Summer long so do not be the only one not donning their reds! :)

The Tassle is Worth the Hassle

It is such an exciting time of year- GRADUATION! First and foremost, we want to say congratulations to all our graduates out there earning their diplomas this month! What an amazing accomplishment that you have been working so incredibly hard for!

Now, we know you will be donning the ever beautiful and ummm… complimenting cap and gown. ;) But just because you have your cape of school victory on doesn’t mean you should sacrifice what is underneath and especially not what is on your feet. Your feet will be on display with and without your cap and gown so let’s give everyone something fabulous to stare at! As Harry Winston says, “People will stare, let’s make it worth their while.”

We have put together some fun and fab looks for your biggest day and took extra attention to the SHOES, of course :) This is your day and you should not feel anything less than the brilliant and fashionable woman that you are!

Graduations everywhere evoke the simplicity of whites, which I love because it is pure, crisp and classic. It almost symbolizes a new beginning, which you are embarking on! I am inspired by this romantic look with flirtatious touches creating a unique but still classic look. We added an eye-catching finish with Blanca in a floral print. Blanca has a gorgeous silhouette that embodies sophistication but adds an on-trend pattern creating a beautiful finishing touch to your whites and crossing a stage!!

Peaches and whites are Spring favorite! They are soft and subtly chic! I love this look because this color is fabulous with any skin tone and pairs perfectly with whites and sweet touches. We paired this peach beauty with our Evon, who is a customer favorite. Evon’s open-toe pump look never goes out of style and is wearable on many occasions this season!

evon_edited-1

I am in LOVE with this glamorous look! Love the romantic draping of the white dress and how classic and flawless it looks! Of course my favorite part is adding the shimmer and luxe touches of the Chrissy wedge pump in show-stopping glam fabric. Love, love, love adding this fun finish to your biggest day ensemble. You will remember this day for the rest of your life so why should you shoes be any less memorable and Chrissy will get that job accomplished! #Fabulous

If you are a girl that is ready to be bold and make a gorgeous fashion-forward statement on your day then this inspiration board is for you! When that graduation gown is ready to come off, make it impressionable with a bold and bright solid dress with a shoe that is sure to catch attention, Viento. This shootie is HOT for this season with its innovative silhouette and dreamy animal print finish. This gem is runway ready for your graduation, diploma receiving day! #HighFashion

This last look is another favorite! We took a sophisticated and feminine take on white with the form fitting bodice, cap sleeves and flare bottom which is ultra complimenting while maintaining  a classy appeal. We added a playful pop with our ChaCha in satin polka-dots. This look to me is an effortless way to look right on trend and gives your feet an extra special step!

Evon Featured in Watters Fall 2014 Bridal Show

We are so honored to have our J.Renee open-toe pump, Evon, featured alongside the stunning and breathtaking Watters 2014 Fall Bridal Show. Evon was featured among stunning gowns constructed of  gorgeous intricate designs with beading and lace detailing in a variety of styles and lengths. Evon also showed off her versatile color and silhouette alongside Watters beautiful bridesmaids dresses.

Just to give you a little background on this gorgeous line, it started 26 years ago with a few dresses handmade for friends and family, and it caught on in a big way. By the late ’80s Watters was a treasured name in the bridal wear industry.

Watters puts their elegant touch on everything from designer bridal gowns, affordable bridal gowns, and dresses for bridesmaids, mother of the wedding, junior bridesmaids, and flower girls under the brand names of Watters, Wtoo, Encore, C20, Seahorse. Last year the Encore collection was launched – stylish dresses designed to go from cocktail parties to rehearsal dinners to post-wedding events.

Vatana Watters continues to be at the heart of the company and is passionately involved in setting the design tone. Her inspirations emanate from her heritage, experience on both coasts and the desire to reflect the spirit of the times. Vatana recognizes that design is where it starts, but not where it ends. And that’s why Watters continues to be appreciated for being a cut above for quality and responsiveness.

This is not our first collaboration with this brilliant line! The Watters models wore the style, Evon last year during their  runway show at NY bridal week last October, so this the 2nd time that Watters has worn J.Renee’ for their shows as well at the Evon open-toe pump.  Evon is a perfect bridal compliment with its comfortable, elegant design alongside its versatile color that doesn’t distract  from the beautiful Watters’ dresses.

Take a look at this exquisite collection and our beloved Evon!
