I don’t want to speak too soon but it’s beginning to feel like Spring is in the air. Hot cross buns and daffodils are appearing in the shops, snowdrops are peeking through the frost and the birds are warming up their vocal chords. It’s not just the sound of the dawn chorus and the scent of toasted spiced buns that’s getting our senses going but the gorgeous sartorial shades across the collections that are sitting pretty in WSd. When Sarah buys for the seasons ahead she doesn’t think about each brand in isolation but rather thinks about how pieces will be read together in store as part of a bigger story. So in this week’s blog we’re taking a look at the latest drop from Shoe the Bear and how the colours through the collection are present throughout WSd…
Let’s get started with a classic- the black strappy sandal. The Yasmin is the definition of chic thanks to a block heel and single ankle strap fastening and is quite frankly an essential in every woman’s shoe collection. They’re the perfect pairing with the Just Female Romain dress and will pick out the black base in the wonderful technicolour of mustard and sky blue stripes. If you’re still feeling a little chilly for sandals or need to book that pedi then team the Romain with a roll neck and long boots for ultimate cosiness or a biker jacket and trainers for a laid back vibe. The Romain really is a wonder as you can choose between a synched in waist for ultimate definition or leave things totally loose for a relaxed look, either way this beauty makes for a dreamy spring wedding outfit and the colours really pop when teamed with metallic accessories.
The new season drop from Mos Mosh is a breathe of sky blue fresh air and works perfectly with the Shoe the Bear May sandals. Proving that the best things really do come in pairs, the sweater-skirt combination has taken on power couple status and is the ultimate in cool sophistication. The best way to approach the pairing is to have fun with prints and fabrics and the Liz Knit and the Elba Vita skirt mean you can do just that. The feminine printed skirt has a dance worthy swishy asymmetric hem which balances beautifully with the chunky cotton knit and loose fit of the Liz. To finish the look dynamic shoes are required and the May sandals complete the chic trio.
New kid on the WSd block, Great Plains, has caused quite the stir in store and online. The brand’s SS19 collection is inspired by the “nomadic sensibilities of the 1960s” and features “well-travelled pieces made for movement”. Case in point is the Utah Floral Jumpsuit- a light one-piece with a relaxed fit, flattering tie waist and cropped sleeves. Pick out the blush tones in the vivid floral pattern with the Shoe the Bear May heel in pink.
