In this rain, fellas, your Chucks simply won't cut it. And even with copious layers of waterproofing spray, we'd be hesitant, too, to step out in our favorite leather loafers. Luckily, designers are making great use of rubber, creating modern, waterproof footwear like you've never seen before.
The key to rocking the runway look on the street has always been to mix and match designer pieces with everyday staples. Edric Chew, a 29-year-old registered nurse, does just that by mixing Louis Vuitton with Urban Outfitters, for a night on the town in Union Square.
Chew likes to have fun with fashion, and is known for his flashy signature style. His outfit above shows how to polish off a low-key look by investing in strong designer accessories. In fact, his ultra-luxe shoes were the first thing to catch our eye. With designer wardrobes, it's all about building. For both guys and girls, a solid pair of designer shoes definitely build a foundation, and will last a lifetime.
That plea also goes out to Crocs, by the way. In fact, an outfit consisting of Crocs, a shrunken and belly-exposing mini tee atop a pair of sweatpants might be enough to singe the eyeballs of style guru Tim Gunn, in town over the weekend to introduce the first Kate Spade apparel collection to over a hundred adoring fans gathered at Bloomingdale's in the San Francisco Westfield Centre.
