Try this Trend: Cork

April 4, 2013

As much as I love poppin’ the cork on wine bottles, today is all about how to wear it. Last year I majorly coveted a pair of wedges with a cork sole and this year I’m killing for a pair of cork flats. Consider them the perfect spring and summer neutral, just like your nude shoes but with a modern slightly more chic twist.  Dress them or up down: pair them with a cute sundress or keep your casual look chic with you pair these with your favorite colored chino shorts.

Should mention I almost did an Ogle Or Own here because there are so, so many cork options that start at $200+, where with the exception of the much-coveted Kate Spade flats below, everything here is really far under that price point. {accepting pats on the back!}. Not ready for a totally cork look? Consider wedges with a cork base (love these or these) or even a little black sandal like this with a touch of cork.

    I’m not sure how I feel about the cork. The shoes throw me off but the bags are starting to grow on me!

    I was so obsessed with finding the perfect pair of cork pumps a few summers ago, but never succeeded. Maybe this summer…
