For those not in the know, AW15 is going to be all about the cropped flare. Not many are going to be a fan of this trend, especially those who worship at the church of skinny jeans, but designers Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Mary Katrantzou and Osman have spoken.
This a trend that dares you to wear something that has been purposefully chopped off and made short. So do we dare? With AW15 on the horizon we have decided to take a leap of faith and style our edit with the cropped flare that will most likely have the street style set up in arms.
Ok, if you decide to take a fashionable chance, what shoes should you wear? Well we have styled this trend with the fabulously techy Light Up LED shoes. These funky must haves by Electric Styles© have sent many fashion tech enthusiasts into a frenzy. I personally am not a fan of apparel or accessories that loudly lights up and announces my presence. I am from the school of discrete wearables, but that being said I do love these.
Electric Styles began in 2011 as a small shop on Etsy. In 2013 their Light Up Ties were featured on the Today Show and the rest as they say is history.
Their LED shoes are available in both men’s and women’s sizes. The LED shoes brag a USB rechargeable and offers 8+ hours of glow time. Available at around $79 (depending on the shoe), the shoes require 4 hours of charge and come in 7 static colors and 1 color changing mode. Choice of colours includes red, yellow, green, blue, purple, aqua and white.
AW15 will be all about staying cool in your cropped flares, so why not add some look-at-me-tech in the shape of LED shoes. If you decide that techy shoes are simply not your thing you must keep in mind that stompier styles of shoe will not work so well with this trend. For those in a star struck mode, you can Shop Electric Styles Shoes now, and when you have made these bad boys yours, we dare you to wear them with a pair of AW15 flares and your favourite jumper, tee or shirt.
