Styling Complicated Pieces: Moccasins

My husband hates two things in this world; maxi dresses, and moccasins. I used to avoid moccasins because I felt that they were so style specific. If you wore them, I judged you to be a beach girl from California or the towns local bohemian (which, by the way, if your town has a local bohemian then it has more culture than most places). Not bad things, just different. That was until I actually got my first pair of Minnetonkas’. I had left all my comfortable shoes at home and while we were away on a trip, I got myself a pair to ease my hurting feet. I have never looked back.

For a short period of time I started wearing them with almost everything, and managed to style them in such as way so as not to lean too heavily to the bohemian side, but sort of stay in the middle of classic chic, and boho glam. I’ve since learned that pretty much anything can be styled in a way thats adorable and presentable, if you just think a little outside of the box. I like to balance mine with minimalistic clothing as well as more structured accessories.

Apart from the statement necklace, everything is really simple and low-key. This way you can wear your hair wild or put up nicely and still looks contemporary.

This look is very demure but sexy at the same time. Leave the coat behind if it’s warmer out and you still have a wonderfully cohesive look. Do a peach lip for some color and tie your hair back in a loose bun.

I love this version of a look that could be business-y were it not for the denim skirt and booties. It’s playful but the lady wearing it is to be taken seriously. I love a nude lip for this one, keeping the hair and makeup really simple will add more to your look than trying to add loads of makeup. Let the accessories do the talking.

Here are some celebrities rocking their moccasins!
