Trend Report: Sabatina

Tailored black sandals: Every woman should own a pair. They're the footwear equivalent to the little black dress. It's a no brainer to match them up with classic work looks and maybe a select few dresses for a night out, but did you ever think that your classic black sandals could be...a little rock and roll? One of the hottest looks for a few seasons now has been inspired by the rock lifestyle, with edgy metallic hardware, sleek silouhettes, printed tees, leather, and of course, black. Söfft's Sabatina sandal is the perfect blend of everything you need to create some killer looks: sexy black croco leather, classic yet edgy Gladiator styling and enough of a heel to dress you up or tone it down. So try something new, let your inner rocker chic show and get even more style out of the classic black sandal - you already know it looks great with the rest of your wardrobe!

Trend Report: Biata

Spring fashion is full of trendsetting and fun looks this season, from acrylic jewels to flowery prints to neon yellow, well, just about anything. But the one spring trend that is the most flattering, the most universal, and the most timeless (i.e. full of value!) is the neutral color palette. These soft pastel tones look fantastic on absolutely everyone, and they're so chic and refined that no matter what the occasion you're dressing for, you'll be anything but boring! This season, the Biata in Ivory is the perfect shoe to carry you through a spring full of pretty neutrals, with it's Grecian-inpired gladiator design, creamy color and earthy-tan heel. Who needs acid yellow to stand out when you can knock 'em dead in these looks?

Trend Report: Peony

Nothing conjures up thoughts of spring quite like a bursting bouquet of peonies, natures most voluptuous and feminine flower. The name Peony, therefore, is quite fitting for this sweet wedge, with it's large blossom detail, light gold-flecked cork heel and buttery soft leather in a bright coral color. The Peony wedge, much like the peony flower, can't help but bring out the girly side of you. Pair this shoe with muted blush tones and neutral grays to look not only sophisticated, but undeniably charming!
