Springtime Street Style
After a long winter wishing for a bright warm sun, we’re finally waking up to and then enjoying clear skies all day through, going for walks in the wonderful fresh spring air while relishing the thought of summer and all those hours of daylight not so very far away. In other words, wardrobe switchover season is here!
It’s a classic: every year in March and April, as we lie down in our beds in early morning quiet we always get to wondering. How cold is it outside today? Even if it’s sunny do we still need stockings? Or should we just wear slacks? And what about shoes, better a pair of open-toe pumps or some canvas sneakers shoes?
Well, re this last point fashion designers have found a great new solution for us by widening the range of slip-ons for women for the SS14 collection. Featuring the pure comfort and easy fit typical of a loafer or slipper, these low, lace-less shoes with a moccasin construction work equally well with miniskirts, midi skirts and ankle-length pants. Absolutely ideal for springtime, thanks also to the stretch side inserts.
M Missoni began embracing a California girl surfer and skater mood with the Summer 2014 pre-collection, presenting cyber knit slip-ons in two different color options. Now the look is resurfacing in a big way in the main collection in two other fabulous versions, one in faux-raffia viscose and the other sneaker slip on in printed canvas. As for the latter, similar butterfly zigzag and patchwork patterns also mark the selection of Summer 2014 bags and accessories. So making for the perfect match.
The days of early morn springtime wondering are behind us at last. Let’s simply head outdoors and bask in the sunlight, realizing there’s no finer way to groove on the fashion scene than in the latest M Missoni slip-ons.
