Rockin’ with the untraditional sneaker combo

30 Jul sneaker-outfit

It is given: street style loves sneakers.

That is why fashion enthusiasts have been trying to incorporate sneakers into all kinds of wardrobes. However, not everyone is successful in combining old outfits with today’s sneakers. The truth of the matter is that unexpected pieces like skater skirts, mini-dresses, and midi skirts are great with sneakers. But, it is easier said than done.

Many fashionistas know that attempting to style one’s self in this outfit isn’t as easy as it seems. That is why in an attempt to help, many have given their tips.

1. Choose your sneakers wisely. The foundation of a great unexpected sneaker combination is a great pair of sneakers. The goal is to create an outfit that looks relaxed, modern, and sleek. If you’re going to wear running shoes, look for flatter, streamlined styles like the Nike Free RN in black. Classic Adidas give most outfits a more urban touch. Converse are also a fantastic option to make a look appear more playful and easy.

2. Pay attention to proportion. Unlike pumps, slingbacks, or nude flats, which visually elongate the leg, sneakers tend to have the opposite effect. When paired with an item like a midi skirt or a bohemian dress, sneakers can make a wearer look stocky or awkward. That’s why fit and proportion are so important. In general, sneakers look better when coupled with shorter hemlines. For an urban, high-low outfit, try pairing them with a skater skirt and T-shirt. For a more feminine, 60s-mod ensemble, try combining a pair of sneakers with a mini skirt or dress. If you’re thinking of experimenting with sneakers and a midi skirt, start out with a tighter-fitting piece that hits just below the knee; a monochromatic theme will help to give the illusion of length and make your outfit appear more cohesive.

3. Strive for purpose. When trying to develop an unexpected sneaker combination, you want to look like you originally intended to pair your outfit with sneakers. Sporting sneakers with a suit, for example, will make it seem as if you’re a tired employee commuting to the office; wearing them with an overly-busy, messy outfit can make it appear like the sneakers were a sloppy afterthought. To create intent, treat your sneakers like they’re the centerpiece of your ensemble; all other pieces should revolve around them.

Sneakers are a painless way to make a look appear more comfortable and contemporary. However, you have to know what looks good with what.

Del Toro Emoji: The Sneakers with Emotion

25 Nov

Remeber back in the days when there was no texting? Then the dawn of texting and cellphones came. IT changed lives. Then, sooner, smileys were born. Now, it is officially called emojis, and most of the time, texting isn’t complete when there are no emojis involved. Emojis have become a dominant part of our texting and social media culture, so much so that they’ve now translated into fun, irreverent fashion.emoji collage shoes

This is the reason why Moda Operandi introduced Emoji Loafers from Del Toro. Moda has an even bigger and better selection of emoji loafers from the brand. Since the idea of emoji loafers clicked, Del Toro even partnered with designer Alison Lou and made an even better emoji loafers. They are on to the next level. emoji gay pride loafers emoji dog heart loafers

You can also play along with skirts (for girls) if you like, of course.

What to wear with keds?

21 Jul

This question is asked a lot. I also wear keds very often and sometimes I wonder if a skirt and keds is actually appropriate. I made a research and found some dress patterns you may like and utilize:

1) For teenagers: blue canvas keds, no socks, white tunic or dress. Should be short.

2) For romantic look: long dress (one color) + bright colored scarf and same color canvas keds. In this case pink works great with beige.

3) Going party? Shiny skirt and gangster sneaks work best!

4) On cold days: high white sneakers with stylish velcro laces add style to your classical coat and spaghetti trousers:

5) Nest outfit for colorful bright sneakers: high hilled anckle top sneaks with colored lines and stylish accessories will excite everyone around you:
