Get lost in the Spring/Summer 2019 mood with the happiest of colours. Aldo shows us how it’s done…
“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” If Miranda Priestly’s sarcasm is a major #mood for you, we’ve got some refreshing news. Aldo’s SS19 Zest for Life is cheerfully devoid of flowery print. Instead, it’s all about colour blocking this season. We’re looking at bold, solid colours that’ll speak to both your bright and dark sides…
Block this way
If the erratic weather has been (quite literally) raining on your parade, donning sprightly colours on your feet might lift your mood. Say hello to Aldo’s Gwurka mules! Apart from being hella versatile (they go from day to night effortlessly), these shoes are also comfortable to wear. We’re debating between kicking it back to the 2000s by going pink on pink á la Regina George or making those hot pink babies stand out against a monochromatic ensemble.
That said, we reckon pastel lovers will be making a beeline for the baby blue pair – an aquamarine hue that is equal parts serene and whimsical at the same time. Pop them on with a floaty dress for a romantic way to prance into spring.
Fans of neutrals aren’t left out either. A toasted almond shade to complete an all-beige outfit? Absolutely. A jet black option to go with anything and everything? Erm, essential!
Meet your solemates
Guys, if you wanna switch out your derby shoes for something a little more casual (but still devilishly smart), loafers will do the trick. The Erez textured suede loafers from Aldo will keep you looking dapper in everything from chinos to jeans.
We think the creamy, off-white pair is an unfaultable find if you wanna do a complete 180 on your usually moody shoe collection. Or, take work-appropriate footwear up a summery notch with a yellow conversation starter – guaranteed to keep you around the water cooler for a tad longer than usual. Can’t tear yourself away from sleek, dark basics? The black, navy and chocolate brown pairs will be right up your alley.
Gotta bag these
Get a handle on spring with these gorgeous crossbody bags. This season’s boxy silhouette is as classic as they come, complete with chic gold hardware and summery hues. Aldo’s Inscore bag comes in a tutti frutti pink that’ll energise even the darkest of wardrobes, and soft hues of periwinkle and nude that has us feeling all dreamy.
We also love the scarf laced up on the top handle, sneaking in a dash of poppin’ colours even on the classic black bag – a hot staple that’ll take you everywhere from day to night to the club at 2am.
