Peep-Toe Boots Showcase

John Marine | 8:01 PM | | | Be the first to comment!
There was a time where I hated peep-toe boots. Over time, I grew to like them, but not hate them as much as I did previously. Many a fashionista especially wear peep-toe booties. I am showcasing various boots with peep-toe or open-toe designs. In case you are new to my fashion/beauty blog, I sometimes round up a collection of blog posts under a specific category. That is the premise of my "Showcase" blog posts. And so here, you will be seeing various peep-toe boots ranging from booties to taller boots. So let's start a new blog post on here!






Peep-Toe Boots at a Glance


This is a look at what I will be discussing here...

peep-toe boots or booties
^ from: www.shopstyle.co.uk - Peep-toe boots offer open-air comfort for feet along with the sleek shaft of boots.

To me, I hated peep-toe boots of many kinds because I thought it was silly to have boots that try to offer sandal-like open air comfort. Boots are about warmth and keeping feet and lower legs projected from unbearable walking conditions. Therefore, I thought it was stupid to try to make peep-toe boots any capacity of stylish. This was even back in a time where I detested fashionistas wearing boots tucked into jeans or pants when it isn't all that cold or unbearable to walk in.

Over time, I began to better appreciate peep-toe boots. I don't think they are beautiful in any sense, but I have grown to a lot less hateful of them. The original premise behind this blog post was about peep-toe booties. However, I broadened the scope to include perhaps boots with taller shafts with peep-toe designs. I know there are going to be fashionable types looking for some design inspiration or some ideas on how to style such shoes. To that end, I figure I give those who love peep-toe boots a chance to enjoy these boots all the further by providing this Showcase post.

I guess what makes peep-toe boots so popular is the sleek appeal of boots coupled with the open-air comfort of sandals. I do not find many of peep-toe boots to be completely stylish, but their appeal is understandable. I'd rather a pair of peep-toe pumps or some chic sandals if you want the open-air feet and toes comfort. I would only recommend peep-toe boots if they were more of the cut out variety rather than some kind of proper boots.

Now you have my thoughts on peep-toe boots. Now let's get you some blogging inspiration.




Peep-Toe Boots Showcase


When it comes to bloggers who wear peep-toe boots, one of the first ones to come to mind for me is Cassandra of "Style Cassentials." A pair of peep-toe boots usually compliments a lot of her outfits. So I will start with her. Otherwise, these posts are not exactly in any specific order. You are free to look at how other fashionistas wear peep-toe boots. You are also free to follow other bloggers that I follow if you enjoy their work. I don't just do this to randomly feature fashion blogs. I do this to try to connect others to an entire world of fashionable types.


Criteria for Inclusion

Here are the requirements for me posting certain fashion bloggers:

• any boots with peep-toes (short and tall boots)
• peep-toe boots worn by the blogger (no inspiration posts or posts of others wearing peep-toe boots)

The peep-toe boots are the stars. So let's get started!


Peep-Toe Boots Around the Blogosphere.

Since I've seen quite a few peep-toe boots of various lengths and styles, I can find a lot of different outfits. Here are some of many of these peep-toe boots. Some bloggers may appear more than once to feature different styles.

"Wild Card Wednesday: Slip Dresses and Sheer Tops" (Style Cassentials) « a slip dress worn over a sheer dark floral blouse, and paired with peep-toe booties.
"Wild Card Wednesday: New Year Ruffles" (Style Cassentials) « rugged peep-toe boots to compliment a stylish dress.
"Casual Style + Buttery Soft Sandals + Blush Satchel" (Stylish Petite) « cut out style peep-toe booties complimenting a casual jeans outfit.

"PEEP TOE WEDGE BOOTIES" (Shall We Sasa) « wedge peep-toe booties.
"Comfy Chic with PinkBlush Part 2" (Color and Grace) « one set of pictures with peep-toe booties.


I probably could go on forever with different posts, but I'll stop here. Contact me if you have a relevant outfit that would fit into my Showcase blog posts.





So that's it. I hope you enjoyed this Showcase post on peep-toe booties. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Wrap Espadrilles

John Marine | 4:14 PM | | Be the first to comment!
When it comes to warm weather wear, espadrilles can be cool. Wrap espadrilles can be beautiful. Open air comfort complimented by elegant wraps can make wrap espadrilles lovely shoes to wear. I will discuss wrap espadrilles ad nauseam for this blog post. Maybe you will agree with me or disagree with me on wrap espadrilles. Either way, I'd like to welcome you to "StyleSpace by JBM!"






Wrap Espadrilles


Let me feature a pair of wrap espadrilles to show you what exactly I am talking about...

wrap espadrille
^ from: www.shopstyle.com - Enjoy the easy, breezy style of espadrilles. Wrap espadrilles have some extra feminine style.

Casually chic are wrap espadrilles. Wrap espadrilles can be beautiful daytime style shoes to wear. Maybe not beautiful as in chic and luxe, but they very much can be lovely to wear. They can be flat or have a wedge heel. Espadrilles of all kinds were meant to be comfortable to wear for almost any kind of daytime outfit. There is still something to be enjoyed with wrap espadrilles. And so for this post, I will be discussing wrap espadrilles and what makes them so charming to fashionistas.

A touch of feminine style is in wraps. To that end, there is no denying the charm of wrap espadrilles. Espadrilles already feature loads of comfort whether flat or wedge. There are even platform espadrilles of the flatform and platform variety. I usually like a lot of closed-toe espadrilles. However, there are some peep-toe espadrilles that are often pretty popular.

Because I adore wedges a lot often times, my dream sort of wrap espadrille outfit would have to be some mid-length dress or long-length dress paired with some wedge wrap espadrilles. I am not thinking of a dress more towards day-to-night versatile, but a casually cool daytime dress. I tend to think a striped dress or a striped skirt goes very well with wrap espadrilles. It offers a fine compliment to a mostly casual type outfit. The look and feel is all about easy comfort on warm or hot days.




Wrap Espadrilles: Final Thoughts


Wrap espadrilles are very casual shoes, yet very chic as well. They offer the feminine charm of a wrap shoe while not being overly elegant or chic. These are great shoes to consider wearing for your finest daytime skirt and dress outfits. They offer the kind of style that doesn't overdo chic style or try to be more suited for black tie or formal occasions. So feel free to add these stylish shoes to your shoe collection and style them as best as you can!





That's the end of this post. Care to discuss? Try this:

What do you think about wrap espadrilles? How would you style them?

Legs Showcase

John Marine | 3:07 PM | | Be the first to comment!
She got legs! Fashionable types with lovely legs are featured in this blog post, as I recognize certain fashionable types whom I think have great legs. This will be an opportunity to show off certain individuals with great legs (and even feet) and picking certain blog posts of such stylish individuals. Perhaps if any featured individuals are reading this and see their names mentioned, you're welcome! :)






Legs Showcase: Introduction and Criteria


I'm sure fashionable types wouldn't mind if I compliment these individuals for their legs. :) What you will see are different individuals featured followed by a sample blog post showcasing their looks. The bloggers featured are not listed in any particular order.


Criteria for Inclusion
I don't just include any hot set of legs. I have certain criteria for which outfits I include. So take a look before understanding which ones I listed.

My only preference is that I find blog posts that do not feature leggings, tights, stockings, or socks (even ankle-length socks). So some posts I had to disqualify in representing the leggy nature of these fashionable folks. I am not suggesting that tights or stockings ruin the beauty of legs, but I just prefer showcasing not just the shape of legs, but the raw beauty of such legs. So any tights, leggings, or stockings posts are disqualified in me showcasing legs here.

Obviously... any long shorts, long jeans, or long pants are obviously disqualified. Long dress and long skirt outfits without high slits also are disqualified.

It also doesn't do much justice with featuring tall boots. The only real acceptable footwear to feature (if wearing any footwear) are the following: sneakers, flats, pumps, sandals, or booties.

So basically, show off your legs stylishly, look good doing it, and boom- you're in this post!




Legs Showcase


It was tough for me to try to pick out certain individuals to feature and try to find decent posts to share their great looks. After a lot of work, I tried to pick out some of the best posts, even if they are old ones.

NOTE: Some of the ones I mention here may be mentioned in the future in individual blog posts about them in the future.


Legs Showcase: Mumu and Macaroons.

Meet Katy Griffith of "Mumu and Macaroons." She is a South Carolina girl who expresses her style across a number of different outfits. Her toned legs adds to the appeal of her leg-bearing outfits along with her choice of various sandals.

SAMPLE POST: Floral Red Romper from My Collection (Mumu and Macaroons)


Legs Showcase: Hapa Time.

The first leggy lovely I want to showcase is Jessica of "Hapa Time." When wearing some leg-bearing outfits, I think Jessica has some sweet legs showing off. They make her already lovely looks even more so. She is still honestly one of the most beautiful fashion bloggers online today. I can almost literally choose any post to show off her hot legs. That would be unrealistic, so let me pick just one to give you a general idea of her hotness...

SAMPLE POST: Spring Style in Charleston (Hapa Time)


Legs Showcase: Song of Style.

Another individual who I always thought had lovely legs is Aimee (pronounced "Aw-meeh") Song. Aimee's blog, "Song of Style," showcases her various fashion insights as well as certain chronicles of her life. Here is a post I selected to represent this beauty:

SAMPLE POST: RIXO LONDON HAS DROPPED THE BEST MINI DRESS FOR SUMMER (Song of Style)


Lega Showcase: Stylish Petite.

Usually, petites are not known to have lovely legs or long legs. Being vertically challenged doesn't allow you to have lustful bodies like most average-height females. If there was one exception (at least among those who are 5'5" or shorter), I would nominate Annie of "Stylish Petite." She wears a lot of skirt and dress outfits. So to that end, it means showing off your legs quite often. May I interest you in the style of this beautiful woman?

SAMPLE POST: Kate Spade New York Make it Mine Collection (Stylish Petite)


Legs Showcase: Bisous Natasha.

Here now is Natasha of "Bisous Natasha." I came across the British beauty of Zimbabwean descent years ago for some rather cool festival-type outfits. Natasha is quite hot. Here is one post showing her legs:

SAMPLE POST: Summer in Regents Park (Bisous Natasha)


Legs Showcase: Androgyn.beauty's Blog

When I first learned of this blog, it was from seeing a bunch of mostly lingerie images from a very bold fashionable Spanish person. This blog called "Androgyn.beauty's Blog" is a mix of fashion posts, but really features more of travel than fashion. It still remains a solid blog no matter what is featured here. Usually, this individual's posts feature wearing short dresses, short skirts, short-shorts, skorts, and sometimes rompers. Some of these outfits are made better with pretty hot pairs of shoes. Since this person consistently has great leggy pictures, I could choose almost any post to represent this person. However, that would be unfair. I can only choose one post out of many solid candidates. So here is a post I selected for you to get a chance to check out these fine pictures of this fashion star:

SAMPLE POST: Photo Session 19 (Androgyn.beauty's Blog)


Legs Showcase: Natassia's place for fashion, high heels and geekiness

I try to find beauty in everything, so do not cringe or feel bad that I am going to mention a crossdresser. Lovely legs are lovely legs. That's the point of this blog post. Anyhow, this is the blog of Dutch crossdresser Natassia Crystal. Natassia usually wears short dresses and short skirts quite often. As the name of her blog implies, she commonly wears high heels. These usually include high-heel pumps, peep-toe pumps, high-heel boots, and even some high-heel sandals. All the while, she showcases her amazing legs while also sporting some high heels. Her sort of athletic build leads to some hot-looking outfits.

SAMPLE POST: "Stripey stuff, short skirts and sandals.. and fast food" (Natassia's place for fashion, high heels and geekiness)


Legs Showcase: Wear and Travel With Anna.

Up next is Ania from Poland. This Polish princess usually is pretty cute with fashion, but she also sports a sweet pair of legs. Her outfits can range from cute to flirty. Often times, chic to casual. Let me choose this post to represent Ania's loveliness of her legs...

SAMPLE POST: "ZOO" (Wear and Travel With Anna)


Legs Showcase: Ari-Mar.

Polish fashion blogger Ariadna Majewska is one of the most seductive and most romantic fashion bloggers you will ever come across. She expresses her beauty in romantic, feminine ways ranging from swimsuits to any number of chic and flirty outfits. She can also make almost anything look hot. Ariadna is easily and consistently one of the most attractive fashionistas online. I honestly could pick almost any post of hers; but of course, that would be unfair to other personalities I feature. Don't take my word for it, though. See for yourself with this sample post:

SAMPLE POST: "Mala czarna z dekoltem, cieliste rajstopy i lakierowane szpilki" (Ari-Maj / Personal blog by Ariadna Majewska)

(AUTHOR'S NOTE) It was hard to choose from for this personality since some of the hot candidates I considered featured tights. I ended up eventually choosing one non-tights outfit. It was a VERY difficult task to pick one post to serve as a sample of her lovely legs with the criteria I selected.


Legs Showcase: Glam Fab Happy.

I do think she has pretty feet from usually wearing sandals and peep-toe shoes, but Jelena of "Glam Fab Happy" does have some quite nice legs. I'll prove it by showing you this post from this stylish Serbian:

SAMPLE POST: "Santorini Outfit: Squared Print" (Glam Fab Happy)


Legs Showcase: Unconventiaonal Secrets.

Now comes an Italian fashionista named Manuela, better known as "Manuelita." Manuela is a gorgeous lady. Despite being a good bit petite, she delivers big time beauty. She showcases her outfits usually with some chic offerings and even swimsuits and lingerie. Here is a look at Manuelita and her fine legs:

SAMPLE POST: "In Bianco and Nero (Unconventional Secrets)


Legs Showcase: Aibina's Blog.

Aibina was the first Kazakh fashion personality I came across and liked. I always thought Aibina's finest asset were her legs. That holds true when showing leg. In addition, I also think she has cute feet also. Here is a post of this beauty from Kazakhstan showing some fine legs:

SAMPLE POST: In the Night (Aibina's Blog)


Legs Showcase: Sasa Zoe.

Sasa Zoe wears a lot of different skirt and dress outfits. And in so, the Chinese fashion blogger showcases her legs a lot. Here is a look at this stylish lady. Shall we Sasa?

SAMPLE POST: "CUTEST STRIPE DRESS AND THE BEST SALES FOR THE WEEKEND" (Shall We Sasa)


There were honestly a few I couldn't get in for this post mostly because they don't have a site or a blog, or I couldn't find any decent pictures to showcase their leggy nature. So here are some Honorable Mentions:


Legs Showcase: Honorable Mention(s).

• Kimi, of BLACKRUSH
• Alicia, of Alicia Wills Pettit
• Camille, of Camille Tries to Blog


If I come across some more leggy personalities, I may feature them in edits to this post. Or do you think you are blessed with lovely legs? Contact me if so! You may get featured here!

Ombré Hair

John Marine | 9:03 PM | | | | Be the first to comment!
Why have only one color of hair? Ever tried ombré hair? Ombré is for more than just clothes. If you are blonde, you may elect to have blue or pink ombre tips for a unique hairstyle. Even if you wear wigs, you can enjoy ombré hair. Regardless, this is a post regarding ombré hair. Are you ready for another cool topic on "StyleSpace by JBM?" Welcome to my non-traditional fashion/beauty blog!

NOTE: I am not any beauty expert, so I will not be sharing beauty tips on how to go with this styling of hair. I may provide extra resources in case this topic interests you greatly.






Ombré Hair


Let me provide an example picture to set the mood for this blog post. Here you go (picture will be changed if I can not use it for legality reasons):

ombre or ombré hair
^ from: (Cosmopolitan) - Ombré can add colorful personality to anything- including your hair!

And here is some inspiration for ombré hair with some brunettes getting the ombré treatment:


^ Ombre Hair Color for Brunettes Tutorials Best Hair Transformations

Being brunette, redhead, or blonde is perfectly fine. However, why not mix up your hair color a bit with... colors? Hair can be given a unique touch by simply adding some extra color to it. You could have long blonde hair and color the ends of it with light blue or light pink. While it is okay to leave hair as is, if you want to make your own statement, you are best served to try to go with some unique color combinations of your original hair and some kind of colorful accents.

In case you are not familiar with ombré, it is a stylish way to add unique colorful highlights to garments. Ombré style involves adding dyed style to any garment. For example, a basic white dress may have a pink color gradient to it and have this dyed look to it. Ombré is all about color diversion to make garments more exciting. While ombré is usually popular with garments, we are discussing bring ombré style to your hair.

So how can you go with ombré hair? Well, here are a few text examples. You can have dark brown or black hair but have purple or lilac colored accents to the bottom of your hair. You can have long blonde hair and decide to dye the lower portions of your hair with orange or some shade of pink. All you are doing is adding a different color to your hair to make it stand out a bit more.

If you wear wigs or have some artificial hair (such as weaves or hair extensions), you too can even go ombré with your hair! You can have as much fun with ombré style. In fact, a loyal reader who discusses ombré for wigs inspired me to post about ombré hair. I want to make mention to this resource as a way of saying thanks. Here is a quick resource I want to share with you if you are interested in ombré hair- even for wigs: Your Complete Ombre Hair Guide: 53 Facts and Ideas for 2018 (The Wig Mall). If you don't want to visit this link, it will be posted again towards the end of this post.


Ombré Hair: How to Get Started?

If you want to go ombré with your hair, you can pick up some hair products that allow you to color your hair. You could even go with some hair chalk... though things can be quite messy if you are not careful. Then too, you don't want to take any chances going with something like different hair products. So you want to be careful and maybe let professionals handle your hair rather than try to do any of this yourself.


Now for a few final thoughts of mine on ombré hair. Read on, enthused ones...




Ombré Hair: Final Thoughts


I don't think anyone can go wrong with ombré hair. Not all color combinations work, but you can surely experiment with any variety of color or colors to formulate your ombré hairstyle. Fashion is all about experimentation; ombré hair is no different. I've seen black or dark brown hair given blonde ombré treatment. I've seen a redhead style have pastel blue hair ends. You can try whatever combination of color or colors to your hair for your own unique hair color touch.


Resources/Other Reading.

Here are a number of resources for you all on ombré hair:

And last but not least, one last salute to the individual who pitched this topic idea to me: Your Complete Ombre Hair Guide: 53 Facts and Ideas for 2018 (The Wig Mall).


I may edit this post to include more material if I find any extra material that may benefit you all. Be sure to stay with this blog for any other material I may add.

Indian Fashion

John Marine | 4:29 PM | Be the first to comment!
(UPDATED: August 15, 2018)

Namaste! This post is on #India and Indian fashion. For some time, I have encountered a number of fashion and beauty bloggers from India. I want this post to showcase India in fashion. It is also kind of a salute post of India and Indian fashion. So I hope I get to show India some love on the fashion front.

August 15 is Independence Day in India, so happy Independence Day to India!


LATEST UPDATE(S)/REVISION(S):

AUG 15 2018 - August 15 is Indepdendence Day in India. Changes made.





Indian Fashion


To most people, most immedialtely think of Mumbai as the epicenter of Indian fashion and media; and you would be right. There is plenty to enjoy about "Bollywood" and all of the different media that eminates from Mumbai. India does have its own fashion style just like any other. When it comes to more folk fashions, I have liked the interesting ethnic patterns and colors that comprise various outfits in Indian folk fashion. Other Indian fashion bloggers have sort of introduced me to other folk outfit pieces in India, but I most adore the sari/saree among feminine Indian fashion.

In seeing the world of fashion, I have been pleased to come across a number of different fashion bloggers and fashion personalities. They represent as much the fabric of fashion as anything else out there.




Indian Fashion Bloggers


If you never heard of any of the fashion bloggers I will make mention to, then you are in for a treat. Here, I will mention a number of different fashion bloggers from India and/or of Indian descent. Click on the headings to visit each blog. The blogs featured will be followed by an introduction. Some of these blogs may have not been updated in a long while. I am mentioning them mostly to show respect for various Indian fashion bloggers I've encountered and liked over my time on the blogging circuit.


Indian Bloggers: My Sugarless Style.

One of the first Indian fashion bloggers I encountered was a blogger named Shruti. She kind of opened the door for me to learn of other different Indian fashion bloggers. So I am pleased to mention Shruti first among various Indian fashion bloggers I've encountered.


Indian Bloggers: My Unfinished Life.

From Shruti, I later encountered Sushmita. Her blog is called "My Unfinished Life." Most of her blog is more travel-related. However, she can put together a few good mean outfits. Sushmita is very cool!


Indian Bloggers: Style Prism.

The adorable Anupriya of "Style Prism" showcases her style nicely in her various blog posts. I once knew her blog as "Stilltoes and Chappals" long before the current name of "Style Prism." Regardless, Anupriya is a sweet-smiling and usually jovial fashion personality. There is no mistaking the lovely style she brings to her posts.


Indian Bloggers: Bong's Balleza.

Ayantika is another fine Indian fashion blogger. I sort of encountered her as I saw most of Anupriya's blogging work. I have respect for her charming looks and her charming fashion style.


Indian Bloggers: The Girl at First Avenue.

Chandana Munipalle runs "The Girl at First Avenue." None of her style is over the top or fancy, but she does provide a great array of regular and folk outfits.


Indian Bloggers: Chamber of Beauty.

If there is one blogger from India who I have the most respect for, it's Rakhshanda of "Chamber of Beauty." While Chamber of Beauty is mostly a beauty-type blog, Rakhshanda does showcase her own personal fashion style. She does so with a combination of regular outfits and even folk outfits. I have followed her work for years on the blogging circuit. Rakhshanda sometimes even took her sense of style to videos online. Needless to say, Rakhshanda has been one of my best blogging friends, and I couldn't be any more pleased being a fan of her and her work.


Indian Bloggers: Stylish By Nature

Stylish By Nature (or SBN) is run by two individuals. One of them is Shalini. Stylish by Nature is more a general digest blog of fashion style in India. It features both fashion and beauty insights along with many other different influences.


Indian Bloggers: "The Celfie Princess."

One of the prettiest fashion bloggers anywhere (let alone India) is the adorable Nivrity Das, who calls herself "The Celfie Princess." The sweet-faced Nivrity showcases her style across a number of different regular and folk outfits.


Indian Bloggers: Cuppajyo

This is the fashion blog of Jyotsna Shankar. Let Jyotsna show you her fashion style as well as her different travel insights.


Indian Bloggers: A Curious Fancy.

Ragini is a very cute plus size fashion blogger from India. I learned of her through LOOKBOOK. So feel free to take a look at this lady's fashion style by visiting her blog and even her other social media outlets.


Now for a few of Honorable Mention... mostly because I am not sure if they are still mostly active in fashion.

Indian Bloggers: Harija Ravi (Honorable Mention!).

Hariva is from Canada but born in India. Formerly known as "My Lyfe : My Story," this is now a self-titled blog showcasing the style of Harija.


Indian Bloggers: Veil of Illusions (Honorable Mention!).

Years ago, I learned of a fashion blogger named Sonakshi who ran a blog called "Veil of Illusions." Her style was so unique and charming that I became a fan of her work. Sonakshi was more along the lines of more artistic style rather than chasing the latest and greatest trends. She mostly left the blogosphere and in posting outfits. However, I still regard her as one of India's finest fashion personalities. So I wanted to mention her among the huge array of different Indian fashion bloggers.


These are among some of the many different Indian fashion blog personalities I have encountered.





I hope you enjoyed this blog post. I do all I can to express fashion and beauty in my own unique way for this non-traditional fashion blog. Do not forget to Subscribe/Follow my work if you enjoy it and haven't done either already. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Can Cowboy Boots Be Beautiful?

John Marine | 3:59 PM | | Be the first to comment!
Boots are surely chic, but cowboy boots can be special. Cowboy boots are usually tough and chic. Paired with the right outfits, cowboy boots can even be lovelier than most chic boots. Some even make these boots all-year footwear. Cowboy boots can range from traditional ones to more fashionable offerings. So do you think cowboy boots can be as lovely (or even more so) than a lot of other boots for females?

To get the mood set for this blog post, let's look at a few cowboy boots.

cowboy boots women traditional
^ from: (Academy Sports and Outdoors) - You don't have to just wear cowboy boots on the ranch- you can even take your cowboy boots to pair with any number of outfits.

cowboy boots women fashion
^ from: www.parenting.com - I guess of late, I've been fond of fringe cowboy boots and even fringe cowboy booties. You don't need to be a Southerner or a pure country girl to enjoy cowboy boots. Even fashion bloggers I know from Poland and Russia have even wore cowboy boots very well! You also don't have to be Taylor Swift in her early career to wear cowboy boots.

Feminine cowboy boots have a great "look at me" appeal to them. They are big and tough while still remaining stylish for the most part. A sundress paired with cowboy boots can make for a fun fashion statement. You can always go the Bohemian route and go with Bohemian style (I hate using "Boho," by the way) to top off with cowboy boots. Channel your inner Daisy Duke and go with some short shorts along with cowboy boots. If you're REALLY a country girl, you can even get married in cowboy boots! I have seen denim wedding dresses online before paired with cowboy boots.

I talk about how footwear can be the ultimate decider of how certain outfits are structured. And really, I don't find cowboy boots to ruin outfits as I have when I discussed certain sneakers with dresses. I actually found some fashionistas actually look great with cowboy boots. So I don't think (for example) a cocktail dress would be ruined by cowboy boots as opposed to a certain kind of sneakers or those Birkenstock sandals. I wouldn't recommend cowboy boots with a number of outfits, but they don't ruin a number of outfits. If rain boots aren't your thing for festival fashion, surely try some cowboy boots instead. To be honest, I don't think you can ruin an outfit by wearing cowboy boots.


Final Thoughts.

So as you can tell from the previous paragraph, cowboy boots can really be fun for almost any outfit and for almost any occasion. These boots can be as stylish as even the most chic boot offerings. It isn't likely cowboy boots will surpass elegant boot offerings even from high-end designers. However, don't be afraid to try a pair of cowboy boots on. I am not just praising these because I'm from Texas; I am just saying these boots really go with a lot of outfits. You know how I said that sneakers could ruin some dress outfits from my #dressandsneakers series? Well, unless the cowboy boots don't look very good, cowboy boots will not ruin a number of outfits. In fact, I probably would rather cowboy boots for a feminine outfit than a lot of rain boots for outfits, as far as outfits with boots are concerned. Go for a fine pair of traditional style cowboy boots. Or if you're feeling cute, try a pair of cowboy ankle boots. I seem to like fringe cowboy boots on females, since they offer a touch of feminine cuteness while also providing some toughness. So you have some options with cowboy boots.

Sneaker Pairings With Dresses

John Marine | 11:44 PM | | | | Be the first to comment!
I been on a #dressandsneakers discussion trip lately. This next post focuses on sneakers to pair with dresses. Not all outfits are created equal. Likewise, not every sneaker works for every dress. So I want to focus on specific sneakers to keep an outfit stylish rather than ruin an outfit over a poor choice of footwear. You'll get my further sort of analysis and thoughts on the trend with this blog post.






Sneaker Pairings With Dresses


There are many ways to set the mood with a picture on this topic, so here is another dress + sneaker combination to get this one started:

sneakers with dress
^ from: lookastic.mx - This series on Dresses With Sneakers continues with another semi-random picture I found to identify this post.

While sneakers can be perfect for playing down outfits, they can also be nice compliments to certain outfits for those with keen eyes for fashion. Through my extensive research, I found that some sneakers are actually not bad to go with outfits, including dresses. That's why I wanted to focus solely (no pun intended) on sneakers for this blog post in this "series" of posts on dresses with sneakers.

The right pair of footwear can compliment outfits nicely. Some others can ruin them. A lot of us males would prefer females wear high heels or some very strappy shoes. Any female, however, will tell you that they prefer to have some comfortable shoes apart from the most appealing of heels. Sneakers don't ruin dresses, but the wrong kind of sneaker can be a complete turn-off to a dress + sneakers outfit. I find some sneakers to be rather elegant. Paired with the right style dress, a dress + sneakers outfit can be cute. Some sneaker combinations with evening/party/formal type dresses can actually be stylish and even sexy- especially certain elegant mini dresses. The right style sneakers with any sort of dress can depend on the dress itself as well as having a charming set of legs and even ankles. I tend to fancy more sleek-style sneakers and even some platform sneakers paired with dresses.

A lot of the dresses and sneakers trend mostly pertain to white sneakers. But as we all know, some dare to be different. There is certainly no problem with white sneakers; however, you know there are fashionistas willing to try different color sneakers or multiple-color sneakers.


How Much Do Sneakers Matter With Dresses?

Well, I tend to look at balance to outfits. Certain fashion types will ensure certain outfits are not entirely casual or not entirely formal. Let us look at some examples. How would you play up a basic T-shirt and some cut-off jean short shorts outfit? Simple- by wearing some high-heel pumps or even a classy blazer or coat. How would you play down an elegant, ladylike dress? Simple again- you could opt for more casual daytime shoes (like flip-flops/thong sandals, some espadrilles, combat boots, or of course- sneakers. You also could opt to wear some kind of denim shirt or denim jean vest or jacket.

As much as certain dresses matter, sneakers equally can help enhance or hurt the balance of the dress. You certainly do not want to do the latter.


Sneaker Details.

How a pair of sneakers looks can matter as much as the dress a fashionista is wearing. Here are some sneaker details to consider when pairing sneakers with dresses:

• the profile of the sneakers themselves
• main color
• side detail
• shoe laces (if any)
• tongue and base
• heel tab
• toe detail

When you consider these things, they can help in deciding whether a pair is suitable enough to be paired with any dress you want to style sneakers with.


Popular Sneakers Paired With Dresses.

This is not a comprehensive list, but these are some of the most popular sneakers paired with dresses:

• (almost any Converses- low-top or high-top)
• Nike Dunk
• Nike Shox
• Nike Pegasus
• Nike Cortez
• Adidas Superstar
• Reebok Classic
• (certain New Balance sneakers)
• Keds Champion
• Superga Platforms

There are many others dresses usually paired with sneakers. This list is just a few of the common sneakers paired with dresses. The list is all based on certain sneakers I've seen mentioned by various fashion bloggers and of other featured fashion personalities.

Now that I think about it, I can see what has made sneakers such as the Adidas Superstar trendy among fashionable types. Some of the key elements to this are in logo detail and even in how the back is styled. With feminine footwear, nothing is quite like leaving a lasting impression with some stylish footwear. That is why (for example) the iconic red soles on Louboutin shoes are so empowering. So some stylish or colorful tab on the back of sneakers can be as fun as the rest of the shoes. The more options you have to style with certain sneakers, the better your chances of having the dream sneakers to compliment your outfits and style.




Sneakers With Dresses: Sneaker Pairings


Now that you have some of my insight in regards to pairing sneakers with dresses, it is time I focus purely on individual sneakers to go with certain kinds of dresses. I am hopeful you get to understand my look at the dress + sneaker styling trend.

NOTE: Some of the sneakers mentioned in this blog post may appear in future blog posts.


Sneakers With Casual or Sporty Dresses.

This section pertains to pairing sneakers with dresses such as this:

sneakers with casual or sporty dresses
^ from: www.revolve.com - Sneakers are casual. This dress is casual. Why not find a pair of sneakers to go with this if you prefer sneakers?

I said before that sneakers are casual. When paired with casual pieces, the combination works very well. Some feel the need to be more comfortable by trading formal or classy shoes with a pair of sneakers. So in essence, even formal or elegant outfits can easily be played down with a pair of casual sneakers.

My idea of casual with casual would be something like a daytime dress with usually a pair of canvas sneakers. Since you are not trying to be fancy or all dolled up, these are times when dresses with sneakers is acceptable and stylish. You can stay casual with no fear of ruining an otherwise stylish outfit. Ease and comfort are what you are going for here. You already feel feminine and pretty in a dress; why not find a pair of sneakers (if you choose to wear any) to go with your dress? Since the mood is casual, keep it casual.

SNEAKERS TO CONSIDER FOR CASUAL DRESSES: This is casual dresses we're talking about, so you can't go wrong with some of the usual suspects. I am not into Converses all that much, but they are not usually go-to sneakers for the casual set. A pair of Vans sneakers are also okay ranging from lace-up ones to the slip-on laceless kinds. Whether you love or loathe them, Skechers sneakers are very much casual and stylish. A company I have been seeing a lot of lately is Superga, and their sneakers can be quite cute for a number of casual dresses. Trainer sneakers from the likes of Nike, Adidas, Reebok, New Balance, and others are also not bad considerations. If going casual, almost any pair of sneakers will do with dresses- ranging from mainstream types to even high-end sneaker types. You can even go with platform sneakers if you like! Try wedge sneakers if you are daring.

Picture examples of SNEAKERS FOR CASUAL DRESSES:

sneakers for casual dresses Converse
^ from: (Amazon) - Converses are the go-to sneakers for most casual outfits by most people.

sneakers for casual dresses Vans
^ from: (Amazon) - Vans are also a fine sneaker option for casual dresses.

sneakers for casual dresses Keds
^ from: (Amazon) - For girly charm, I always have been fond of Keds. Especially the iconic Keds Champion sneakers are a fine choice for any fashionista.

sneakers for dresses Skechers
^ from: (Amazon) - Don't count out the unique casual shoe styles of Skechers. Many a casual outfit- dresses included- can benefit style-wise from Skechers sneakers.

sneakers for dresses sporty
^ from: (Amazon) - Feeling sporty? Some sporty sneakers will serve your dress well. Some are sporty enough while not being too sporty. Such sporty sneakers, such as the Adidas Superstar sneakers, are very popular among sporty sneakers.

sneakers for dresses sporty
^ from: (Amazon France) - The so-called "ugly sneakers" or "dad sneakers" platform sneakers with either a casual or a sporty appearance can actually be rather cute with the right kind of dress. A number of people reference these platform sneakers more like Sporty Spice of the Spice Girls.


So be sure to experiment to your heart's delight with casual dresses and sneakers. Hopefully sneaker examples like the ones I have provided will give you some inspiration.


Sneakers With Classy Dresses.

This section is where we are talking about pairing sneakers with dresses like this:

sneakers with classy dresses
^ from: www.dillards.com - It doesn't have to be Casual Friday to go with sneakers at the office.

Most classy-type outfits paired with sneakers are strongly discouraged. Same applies to classy work-appropriate dresses. Some female need some sneakers to walk around in when trying to find comfort from high heels or some other kind of classy footwear. Sneakers at work likely isn't discouraged when it's Casual Friday. I can immediately think of sheath dresses as a lovely example of work-appropriate dresses. I would argue against pairing sheath dresses with sneakers. However, if you insist on doing sneakers with any kind of work-style dresses, I would suggest certain classy shirt dresses. The best kind of sneakers to me for classy style dresses are those with sleek profiles. I would not go with any sneakers meant for Casual Friday or what you would probably wear when off of work or going to school/college.

SNEAKERS TO CONSIDER FOR CLASSY DRESSES: It is tough to try to be classy with sneakers. If it were possible, though, I have a few suggestions. I would first stay away from any active style sneakers or any canvas sneakers. Instead, I would look for sneakers with a sleek profile and an elegant appearance. One problem here is that some of the more sleek style sneakers can be rather expensive. However, you are not ruining the elegance and class too much by wearing sneakers that just don't go well balance-wise with a classy outfit. So you can be classy and elegant at the same time wearing something as casual as sneakers.

Picture examples of SNEAKERS FOR CLASSY DRESSES:

sneakers for classy dresses
^ from: (Rebelle) - With classy-type dresses, it is best to go with sleek profile sneakers that still maintain your overall elegance. Don't ruin an elegant and classy dress with shoes entirely meant for a lazy day.

dresses with sneakers classy
^ from: farfetch.com - This is an example of sophisticated sneakers. I love these Robert Clergerie "Pasket" sneakers as far as sophisticated sneakers for women. These can be a sneaker alternative to oxfords or brogues. Their profile is sleek and can compliment a number of styles.

sneakers for classy dresses
^ from: (Amazon) - With classy-type dresses, it is best to go with sleek profile sneakers that still maintain your overall elegance. Don't ruin an elegant and classy dress with shoes entirely meant for a lazy day.

sneakers for classy dresses
^ from: www.ghostgirlkimiko.com - You COULD be able to go with wearing sneakers that are a balance of casual and sporty without being too much on either side.


Sneakers With Elegant Dresses.

Dresses like this paired with sneakers is what this section is about:

evening or party or club dress mini
^ from: www.tobi.com - Would you pair sneakers with an elegant dress? And what kind of sneakers?

Would you dare try pairing sneakers with certain elegant and ladylike outfits? Ladylike dresses meant for nights out usually call for the sexiest pair of heeled pumps or sandals (and sometimes boots) in your wardrobe. There are some elegant or sexy dresses that can actually be not bad to wear with sneakers. I am not just talking about dressing down evening dresses with daytime sneakers; some sneakers usually have a style to them that are actually not bad to wear with elegant or sexy dresses. You actually can wear certain sneakers and not end up killing the sex appeal offered by a night-style dress. When I tried pairing certain evening or elegant dresses, I found some sneakers could actually help maintain the elegant balance rather than destroy it entirely. It all depends on your fashion tastes and how you feel a pair of sneakers can prevent from dumbing down an outfit too much. Chances are, most of us males would probably be turned off of a hot female in an elegant mini dress... and wearing sneakers rather than some spicy stiletto high-heels.

Dresses defined as "elegant" by me include bodycon/bandage dresses, any formal-type dress of mini or long length, any nightclub-appropriate dresses, certain sexy mini dresses, and things like that. These are dresses of at least semi-formal variety.

SNEAKERS TO CONSIDER FOR ELEGANT/NIGHT DRESSES: So you want to wear sneakers with a night-style dress? Just like the previous section, I advise against certain athletic/active sneakers. Basically look for a pair of sneakers as sophisticated and as attractive as your night outfits. If you really care to look sophisticated and hot even in sneakers, best to find sneakers to compliment your elegant style. Since this is not about office-style fashion, you can afford to go all out with sneakers to feel good in while wearing your evening or party style dress. So go try any number of expressive sneakers. Just remember not to throw off the balance too much with a poor choice of sneakers.


Picture Examples of SNEAKERS FOR ELEGANT DRESSES:


^ from: www.lyst.com - Some sneakers are elegant enough to go with the most elegant of dresses. The "Pasket" sneakers from Robert Clergerie is a fine example of elegant sneakers. Or at least, those that can considered elegant in their design. Those sneakers can even go with a variety of night dresses. So try them on with your stylish night dresses! (AUTHOR'S NOTE: I actually would pair sneakers like these with some sexy party dress stylish enough to not be ruined by them.)

glitter or metallic sneakers
^ from: (Lime Lush) - Because we are discussing night-type fashion, it is okay to bedazzle with sneakers. Perhaps with a hot night dress, go with some sophisticated metallic, glitter, or sequin sneakers.


^ from: meredith.com - You may also opt for some plain style sneakers but with some bedazzling elements, such as the detail at the back of these sneakers.

sporty casual sneakers
^ from: (ShopStyle) - You could wear sneakers that can be both sporty and girly, such as these athletic-style sneakers with sequin detail.


I hope I have given you some insight about what sneakers to pair whatever kind of dress with.





I have kind of been on a trip of discussing dresses with sneakers, though I admit I am not crazy over the trend. I do hope you enjoy my efforts nonetheless. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Dresses With Sneakers Showcase

John Marine | 4:35 PM | | | | Be the first to comment!
#DressAndSneakers makes up this Showcase. So if you like the look of pairing dresses with sneakers, this is a post for you. You may even get some styling ideas from the ones I will feature in this blog post. No matter what, that is the point of these Showcase posts- provide snapshots of a certain trend or a certain theme. And in this blog post, the theme is on the dresses with sneakers look. Let's go to work!






Dresses With Sneakers Showcase


After doing a post regarding dresses with sneakers, it's time to focus this post entirely on different dress + sneaker outfits from recently and not so recent. I will set the mood with a picture before showing you what all you will find here:

dresses with sneakers
^ from: (Pinterest) - Dresses with sneakers is a trend you either love or loathe. Certainly if you love the look, you might love the various posts of dress + sneaker outfits from fashionistas worldwide.

I advise you to read my post on dresses with sneakers to get my ideas on the look. So if you haven't done so, look here: Dresses With Sneakers (StyleSpace by JBM).

I am continuing my comprehensive look at pairing dresses with sneakers. For this post, I decided to round up a number of blog posts from fashionistas worldwide who have put together outfits with dresses and sneakers. Comfort and femininity is what this pairing offers. Some think the combination of dresses and sneakers is a stylish one. Some others think they don't go together at all. Of course, many a fashionista will dare try almost any combination of a dress and a pair of sneakers. Sometimes even including taking even the most elegant of dresses to be dumbed down and played down with sneakers. For example, a frilly evening dress paired with Converses or some kind of running shoes.

No matter how you feel about pairing dresses with sneakers, it is very much a real trend with many fashionistas giving it a try. To show how many different divas try out the trend, I've created this Showcase post featuring bloggers from around the world giving this look a try.


Criteria for Inclusion.

If you want to know what goes into picking these outfits, this is the criteria for included posts for this blog post:

• any proper dress outfit (no skirt outfits, two-piece dresses, overall/dungaree skirts, rompers, jumpsuits, etc.)
• dress must be paired with any kind of sneakers
• post with multiple outfits must include at least one picture of a dress + sneaker outfit

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Some classify boat shoes as sneakers. I have not included any possible boat shoe outfits in this showcase post or in my original post about dresses with sneakers.


So let's get started!
