Trend Alert: Cut Out Shoes

Ever since I saw the Jeffery Campbell Coltrane boots on tumblr, I have been interested in this whole new line up of cut out shoes. I have complied a list that I would buy if I had money to afford these, but I don't. So this here are some of my dream shoes. Your in luck.


This is my ultimate dream show. This Balenciaga shoe is just so cool and edgy and rad and ahjnpgaeakfz. The only thing is that it cost almost two thousand grand. 

I love the ivory color and the pairing of fringe with these side cut outs. 

The Coltrane boots and this one from Aldo are very similar. Although this shoe can be considered as a dupe,  it's only just twenty dollars cheaper. 

These KATZ2 cut out shoes are a wonderful take on a unique boot. Sides are cut with ankle buckled straps.  Perfection. 

This mint green color is vibrant and lovely. This JuJu shoe is one that I could buy, me being such a frugal person. 


Well, hopefully you consider checking out this trend. It's certainly something I believe will go popular.

Californian Teen Fashion

So today's post, I would like to exhibit a trend I noticed while in California. This non-atypical trend could be seen across the teenage community. I don't know if this post is going to turn out to be some rant or complaint or some "how-to" guide. Honestly, I need to put some material on this blog. So this is what I thought to myself, "Hey! You can talk about the teen fashion trends seen in the glorious state called California!" And so yeah. HERE IT IS.


It seems like different trends coordinate in different areas: LA and San Diego. But, both are the same except for the bottom half. You'll see. 

This outfit coordinates to the outfits I saw in Los Angeles (although this style can be seen anywhere now since it's so popular). I call it the Summer Tumblr Trend, inspired to all you people you have a summer themed blog and reblog these typical outfits. I'm not bashing you if you have that theme or like it. I for one, had once a summer tumblr blog as well. So no hate!






1. Almost all the outifts I saw had a top crop. I mean, that is like a standard pairing when wearing high waisted shorts because you're not just wearing regular old denim shorts, but old school mom jeans cut short. You gotta flair out to everyone that you are hip for wearing 90's clothing. Of course there are many different other tops to wear like a simple bustier or maybe a cozy sweater with just the front tucked in. There's so many ways that can achieve the perfect summer look.

2. Of course, all outfits has to have some sort of high waisted shorts. No questions asked. These type of shorts can be found everywhere now, from Forever 21 to your local boutique. But if you want to be seen as some cool hipster, go to your local Goodwill and find yourself some vintage Levi jeans. Booyeah!

3. High white Chuck's(which seem to popular) or just regular white converse. I personally love these shoes. I own two! The sucky thing is that they get dirty reeaaallly easily. 

I don't know what's up with me and tumblr, I'm sorry, but I'll call this style the "Street Style Tumblr Trend" like the header above. This I found to more popular among Teens in the San Diego area. But of course, can be found anywhere, not just this particular region. 



1. Of course, start with a top crop, like the outfit before. A top that's more looser and not tight seems to be the case. It should barely hover the upper band of the skirt. 
2. Instead of the shorts, it is traded in with a flippy jersey skater/circle skirt. 
3. Lastly, a nice pair of cut out sandals should be a nice touch to a feminene outfit. Of course, substitute to any kind of shoe, like converse or jellies, or even some like this.


Below I have listed some particular clothing items that I feel work with these two outfits:

Tops:
-
-
-
-
-

Shorts:
-
-
-

Skirts:
-
-
-
-
-

Shoes:
-
-
-
-


In conclusion, they are both similar outfits seen in cities hours apart. But what "trend" do I prefer? I like the second outfit or what I call the "Street Style Tumblr". It's cute and girly. For me, I feel more comfortable under a skirt (that go mid thigh or to the knees) than some shorts. But that's just me, it could be totally different for you. But what I like best about both of these is that you don't have to stick with restricted, particular items to get a similar look. You can experiment with different clothing and you can get the same result!
