Joeii Sandals
STEVEN by Steve Madden

Fit Guide
1. Shoes. The good news on the shoe front is that heel heights run the gamut. If you are a stiletto lady, a pointy toe and single sole version is as important as ever – and we love them for a night out with your favorite slouchy jeans. If you like a thicker heel, styles with block heels and platforms look amazing and are so versatile. If you prefer a flat, we’ve got stylish options there, too – pretty pointed toes for work and sandals with a small platform won’t disappoint. And we won’t forget the retro influence that has brought back mules, wedges, and even stylishly modified versions of clogs – they are beautiful with all the new flare and wide leg pants this season. These STEVEN by Steve Madden (Steve Madden’s elevated line) combine a lot of our favorites for the season to create a completely versatile and wearable sandal. The small espadrille wedge is just enough to elongate the leg, and is so comfortable to walk around for the day – with jeans, a cute skirt or dress, even shorts – you’ll reach for them with everything and they’ll instantly update any easy look.

5. Sunglasses. Playing up the whole Americana feel of the season, it is no surprise to see aviator sunglasses remaining as important as ever – and that’s fine by us, since they are flattering on almost every shape face. On the more serious fashion side of things, round and oval retro-feeling sunglasses are looking fresh and new. (But don’t worry, you don’t need to store away your bigger frames just yet – those are still completely appropriate.) These Ray-Bans are called Youngster, and we’re pretty sure that’s because they’ll make you look younger and feel carefree while wearing them. With their lightweight and great price for designer frames, you’ll wear these everywhere without worry. And their updated aviator shape and matte rubber frame takes a classic frame to a fresh new level. These come in black, but the tortoise has a much richer look, so it’s our top pick.

4. Belts. With our pant rises getting back to our actual waists, and the reemergence of feminine suits, tunics, and flowing skirts and dresses, belts become more important than ever. Wide leg and flare pants are very elongating with a higher rise and tucked in blouse, and a skinny belt finishes that look effortlessly. For those looser pieces, harness and obi-inspired belts create a soft knotted or wrapped look that cinch the waist and add simple shape for women of all body types. This one is our top obi pick for versatility in both width and color. And boy, does it flatter - whether you choose a skinnier width, black, or laser cut grey. We are sending you to Anthropologie’s website for it’s customer-friendly returns, but ADA’s own website offers some great pictures of how to tie an obi you should check out.

3. Jewelry. Gold from bright and shiny to brassy antiquing is in the spotlight this season. And it comes in lots of forms from a statement cuff bracelet, to an updated choker, a chunky chain link, or something soft and vintage inspired. And since embellishment and hippy inspiration is flowing through everything this season, picking up these trends in jewelry through pendant necklaces and interesting materials like wood and resin is a perfect place to subtly – or not so subtly - update your look. This long chain link necklace combines some of the best. It comes in several neutral options, and this Ivory Tokyo tortoise looks just as beautiful with neutrals as pops of colors like orange or blue. The longer length is flattering with a tunic, wrap style, button down, or simple sheath.

2. Handbags. This season, handbags take a few exciting directions. With ‘70’s inspiration in full swing, it’s no surprise to see the return of the bucket bag. It’s drawstring opening and shoulder strap offers function and fashion all in one. With summer suedes looking so fresh too, this DAY BIRGER ET MEIKKELSEN bucket bag is perfection for the season – and you’ll love it through the fall. Whether you like the shorter strap or the longer one to use it cross body (also a great statement this season), it has all the function and style you could want for a casual day or to wear to the office. And the quality is beautiful. On the other side of the style spectrum, structured lady-like bags with top handles are so sophisticated, and even come in small sizes that are so cute for a night out. In materials like summer suede, embossed croc, and with details like floral embellishment and fringe detail, there are a lot of amazing options.
