Decades ago, style was dictated by a few and followed by the masses. Today, women are often empowered and proud to be their own stylist with a signature look. The ability to tailor your appearance on a whim or for special events is embraced, allowing you, when the mood strikes, to style a look that harkens back to fashionable eras of the past. Whether you’re inspired by the 50’s, 60’s, or 90’s, footwear plays a key role in pulling off each Instagram-worthy outfit. You will be delighted to know that SAS Shoes is the go-to brand for women who love comfort and extraordinary style. Our broad range of handcrafted footwear can cap off just about any look you are going for.

Of course, different footwear styles are more appropriate than others for different occasions as well as different outfits. That being said, we put together a quick style guide to show you how you can incorporate our quality, hand-crafted SAS Shoes into different style themes. From retro to bohemian, edgy and classic – we have you covered!

Retro-Chic

Fashion influencer, @made_in_saigon, shares the love in her Moxie pumps and a retro-inspired outfit.

Retro-chic can be characterized by designs inspired by the 40’s and 50s: feminine blouses with tailored skirts, rich accessories, and of course, shoes - oh so many shoes! For warmer weather, you can add a matching tailored jacket with a pair of our classic pointed toe Moxie pump with a kitten heel or our elegant peep-toe Scarlett wedge. Both come in a variety of colors suitable for just about anything. For more casual events, swap the skirt for slim capris and add the SAS Scenic, a properly constructed ballet flat, to truly pull out the Audrey Hepburn in you. All three shoe styles can be worn to achieve countless looks, making them must-haves for your wardrobe.

Androgynous Silhouette

@btswithkaela sports the androgynous look with her Francessa pumps.

Fashion media often raves about the androgynous beauty of a woman in a male inspired tuxedo. Special events are the perfect opportunity to pull off Katherine Hepburn’s signature 30’s look. A simple black suit or slim tuxedo with a pair of SAS’s Reina or Francessa pumps will have photographers paying special attention and your selfies receiving extra love from fans. To the confident women who don’t abide by the norms and aren’t afraid to wear boyfriend jeans with a loose button-down blouse or a full suit, a must-have we also recommend is a pair of our classic and modern Hope loafer. Our Hope loafer is the perfect pair to bring your bold, confident looks together almost all year round. However, don’t be fooled. The Hope and Reina aren’t limited to a masculine chic style, they go with a wide variety of styles and outfits and can add a touch of sophistication to even the most casual looks.

Bohemian

This 70's flair in this outfit chosen by @candacemread looks great with her Dylan suede boots!

The 70’s “boho-chic” style that has inspired countless music festival looks across the globe can be described as relaxed and free yet fashionably put-together. Boho-chic looks come together with ease with the right pair of ankle boots, like our western soft Italian suede Dylan ankle boot, or fashionable sandals, like our genuine leather Sanibel sandal. Pair our ankle boots with a stylish romper or your favorite maxi skirt with a pair of our fashionable and properly constructed sandals to achieve the perfect outfit this festival season.

Edgy

@bisousbrittany shows off her edgy side in her black Delaney boots.

In order to master an edgy 80’s look, you’re going to need to pull out or invest in a few items: distressed denim jeans, a leather jacket, and of course, a fabulous pair of upscale, genuine leather Delaney ankle boots. No matter what outfit you’re wearing, a pair of leather ankle boots will always be the fashion staple necessary to bring an edgy look together. Throw on a pair of distressed denim jeans and a black leather jacket and you’re ready to go.

Timeless Class

Class never goes out of style, and @themodernsocialite1 shows that in this outfit and her Luxe loafers.

At the end of the day, when it’s all said and done, a classic and elegant style can put you at the top of the best-dressed list in almost any situation. Classic and elegant encompasses anything from tucked-in, button down blouses to wide-legged trousers and even pencil skirts. No matter what outfit you’re wearing, pair it with SAS Shoes and you will be beautifully dressed but also comfortable for every occasion. Fabulous options vary from our simply elegant Scenic ballet flat to our luxurious Luxe loafer and even our classic pointed toe Moxie pump. All of these stunning shoes are wonderful options for a classic and elegant style appropriate for any situation.

We hope you enjoy our quick guide on different ways to incorporate your favorite SAS Shoes into your unique wardrobe.
