This week we’re tackling transitional footwear in our ‘ask a stylist’ series — get all the expert tips and tricks you need right here!
With so many open-toed booties, pumps, and even sandals in winter-ready fabrics, like suede, the fall and winter definitely isn’t time to shy away from the style — but how can you work the trend when the weather isn’t warm? Luckily we got to ask Cristina Ehrlich — not only is she the celebrity stylist behind Ashley Greene‘s classic and chic get-ups, but she’s also an ambassador to Via Spiga. We caught up with her in the shoe boutique where she shared us the perfect tips and tricks! Regardless of your age or sense of style, you’ll be able to work the look with her tips!
“Depending on your general style, I think you can tell when you see a girl wearing a little chunky sandal and an ankle sock that it’s really genuine to her. I think it’s a taste-by-taste situation. But I’m an advocate to being open and playing around with hosiery and socks with open-toed shoes. Try to experiment, but be realistic. I think a younger demographic can pull off a cutesy ankle sock, where as more sophisticated women that are older should experiment with tights — try a colored tight and see how it plays out. If that’s pushing it too far, try a black stocking. I don’t think women should feel limited to thinking they can’t wear an open-toed shoe in the winter and they should just play around and explore what looks best for them.”
“Another thing I really love this season is the ankle boot. With a chic little ankle boot you have so many options — there’s so many different ways to wear it! It looks great with a pencil skirt and is a nice alternative to a high-heel, but also looks great with slacks or jeans.”
