Trendspotting: Ruby Slippers
Like Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz , every gal (and guy!) needs a pair of ruby slippers. While we may not be sporting the magical, sequin-festooned kicks so famously worn by Judy Garland’s character, quite a few of us Chictopians have recently been wearing similar statement-making red shoes. In the same way as Little Red Dresses are coming into fashion, are little red shoes a must-have for this fall.
WyeChin works a kawaii-inspired look. She pairs heart-print mini skirt with a simple white top and bag, adding a distinctive pop of color with a wide scarlet belt and matching wrapped wedges. Her outfit is both classic and trendy; the red white and blue color combination emulates the apparel of such distinctive celebrities as Minnie Mouse, while the short hemline of the skirt and the novel appeal of the wedges keeps in pace with the styles of today.
Style Icon, in3gue, simultaneously emulates several of this fall’s hottest trends. Her skinny camel-colored pants and beige button-down shirt perfectly sync together with a pair of rusty suede ultra-platforms. She keeps our attention focused primarily on her clothes with subtle black eyeliner and a sleek ombre-ed hairstyle.
Ruby slippers aren’t exclusively for girls! londondude borrows some fashion ideas from the Scottish highlands. He cleverly mixes a bold red plaid kilt with a schoolboy-esque argyle sweater, adding a touch of his signature quirkiness with a historically-reminiscent leather pouch and fun crimson loafers.
4. Acid Wash
leatherlaceandvelvet sports several different decades looks in this pinup-chic ensemble. Her 50’s housewife-like blouse and 80’s acid-wash pencil skirt merge perfectly with her flirty dark red headband and deep scarlet ankle-strap pumps. A cute pageboy haircut, inspired by Faye Dunaway, finishes off the look.
Night_Owl’s outfit should be right next to the word “tomboy chic” in the dictionary. Her striped Parisian blouse and slouchy boyfriend blazer get a taste of casualness at its best with comfortable skinny jeans and bright red sneakers. A white watch and carry-all leather bag make this outfit both stylish and practical!
Whether you’re strolling through the plains of Kansas or strutting through the streets of the Emerald City, there’s a pair of perfect ruby slippers out there for each and every Chictopian. “Click, click!” There’s no place like home!
