ECCO ’s Christmas look book, Part I for women

The festive season is in full swing, the presents are bought and hopefully wrapped, the turkey is ready to collect and it’s time for the celebrations to begin.

Like most of us, you’ve probably been so caught up in preparations for Christmas that you’re barely spared a thought to what you’ll wear when the special occasions come around.

That’s why our gift to you before Christmas is our ECCO Christmas look book – your guide to the perfect accessories for a perfect Christmas.

Party perfect

Ecco Mona

ECCO Mona

Flirty and feminine, the ECCO Mona is your perfect party companion.

Dare to wear a shorter skirt style this party season, the 70mm heel will flatter your legs while the stable heel and comfortable sole unit of the ECCO Mona will see you glide round the dance floor with the grace and confidence of a dancer.

Wear them with dresses, skirts or tapered trousers and let the partying begin.

Classy Christmas Day

ECCO Mason

ECCO Mason

Let it shine this Christmas and feel luxurious from top-to-toe on Christmas Day.

A simple, yet sophisticated ballet pump is a great look for Christmas Day. Glamorous enough to wear with a dress or smart outfit, yet practical enough to crouch round the tree opening presents or for party games.

Wear them with a simple shift dress or with an ankle-length trouser for an effortlessly stylish Christmas.

Boxing Day best

ECCO Osma

ECCO Osmo

The relaxed pace of Boxing Day calls for a snuggly, comforting kind of chic.

The ECCO Osmo fits the Boxing Day agenda perfectly. Their wool linings are warm and soft in case you’re feeling more delicate than usual and the chic design will see you through impromptu ‘open house’ drinks in style.

Wear them with a skirt and woolly tights or over skinny jeans accompanied by your favourite knitted sweater.

Merry Christmas from us all at ECCO Shoes!

Let’s get to…play!

Last week Play England launched an initiative called Love Outdoor Play.

Inspired by the need for all children to play outdoors more, the initiative calls on everyone to do something to make sure more children have more access to outdoor play.

Whether it be using the site to map local recommendations for outdoor play (a bit like Pinterest), volunteering at a local play project, publicising the cause via social media or just simply seeing the initiative as a reminder to ditch the jobs for the park this weekend. See http://loveoutdoorplay.net for more details.

The fact is, young or old, we all benefit from getting outdoors, reconnecting with nature and just having room to breathe.

Whether you’re inspired to get outside for you, for your kids or for you both, a great pair of outdoor shoes from Ecco will mean you’re always ready to play, no matter what the weather.

Ecco: Shoes to show off

Walk In Style

Ecco’s Walk IN Style Award fashion show has become a firm fixture in the fashion calendar. An annual assertion of Ecco’s corporate social agenda and modern fashion brand values, the event takes a celebrated spot at the opening of Copenhagen Fashion Week.

This year’s show was a fantastic showpiece of the most important shoe trends for Autumn/Winter 2011 and visionary designers chose three artistic themes to inspire the audience and bring the shoes on the catwalk to life.

The themes were Red Passion, Forest Future and Nordic Grunge and models were dressed in pieces of art to convey the vision of each theme.

Red Passion

This theme is a nod to chic and decadent Parisian style. Think faded photos curled at the corners, intricate perfume bottles and jewellery boxes with elegant pearls. The shoes for this theme are sleek, feminine shoes. Shoes that deserve to be worn to a party and shoes that demand to be shown off.

Red Passion

Forest Future

This theme is about our urge to be more in touch with nature. Whether it be fighting climate change or looking to escape the humdrum of the city, there’s something in nature that appeals to us. The shoes for this theme are a bout geometric shapes, a variety of textures and moss green, autumn leaf yellow and dark brown dominate the colour scheme.
Forest Green

Nordic Grunge

This theme has a punk attitude towards fashion, resisting a specific trend and instead embracing the ‘no rules’ dress sense associated with the early 90s. The styling for this theme meant a looked that was layered, with Nordic undertones. Hiking boots were worn in a trendy way with mix and match colour Norwegian prints.

Nordic Grunge

Read more about the Ecco Walk IN Style fashion awards.

So as you’ve seen, we’ve been busy showing off our shoes. Life’s too short not to show off your favourite things so wear your favourite shoes and show off today.

Keep an eye out for new Autumn/Winter Ecco styles at Ecco Shoes Lymington. Ecco Men’s shoes available in formal and casual styles, trainers, golf shoes and boots. Ecco Women’s shoes available in sandals, formal, casual, trainers, golf shoes and boots.

Date night

There’s nothing that sends us in desperate search of style tips like dressing for a date.

The dating world can seem like a complex collection of rules, with opportunities for humiliating blunders lurking at every corner.

Knowing how to dress for that all-important first date can be hard, and selecting outfits for the second and third dates can be even harder.

So, if you’re hoping to dress to impress for an upcoming date without giving off a sense of ‘try hard’ desperation, check out our Ecco Shoes Lymington guide to perfect pairings – of the footwear kind at least:

Dinner date

Ecco Elbe

 

Ecco Elbe
A sophisticated wedge adds height and glamour, without being too suggestive.

Ecco Thames

Ecco Thames
A quality leather loafer implies that you’re taking the date and the restaurant dress code seriously, without the formality of an oxford style lace up.

Movie date

Ecco Model

Ecco Model
A ballet pump says casual elegance and can be slipped off for an innocent game of footsie if required.

Ecco Dablo

Ecco Dablo
A moccasin is a trendy look, smart enough to be passable if the cinema turns into after-movie drinks.

Day date

Ecco Snow

 

Ecco Snow
Mid-calf boots are a mainstay for days when you need to look laidback and trendy.

Ecco Mendez

Ecco Mendez
A comfortable, dressed down yet luxurious shoe that will style you no matter what the day throws at you.

British style is back in vogue

And there’s one reason and one reason only, Kate Middleton.

With the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge now on their way home, they leave Canada, America and the world looking on in admiration of their grace, good nature and Kate’s winning sense of style.

With each day of their first official tour, Kate has dazzled with an array of glamorous yet sophisticated ensembles and has left even the harshest fashion commentators gushing.

So the question we’re asking at Ecco Lymington this week is: what’s Kate doing so right that others often do so wrong?

Quite simply, she’s keeping her look clean, elegant and well…simple.

When it comes to footwear, Kate plays by a simple set of rules and reminds us that, with a great capsule footwear collection, women don’t actually need wardrobes full of shoes:

Formalwear (daytime)

Kate Middleton Nude Court Shoe

Kate Middleton Nude Court Shoe

A nude court shoe adds a chic touch while flattering the leg shape.

Smart/casual wear

Kate Middleton Wedge Shoes

Kate Middleton Wedge Shoes

A wedge shoe adds height and creates shape, without the dressiness of a stiletto heel.

Formalwear (evening)

Kate Middleton Nude Strappy Sandal

Kate Middleton Nude Strappy Sandal

A strappy sandal in a nude colour takes nothing away from the dress but adds a timeless Hollywood glamour.

Casual

Kate Middleton Ballet Flats

Kate Middleton Ballet Flats

A ballet flat keeps the look dressed down, yet chic and feminine.

So from all of us at Ecco, bravo Kate! Simple rules and a simple reminder to us all that less is almost always more.

Visit Ecco Lymington to view a fantastic range of simply quality women’s footwear including Ecco women’s formal shoes, boots, sandals and casual styles.

Don’t put the dress before the shoes

We’ve all know what it means to put the cart before the horse.

But, in fashion, it’s a common misconception that women put the dress before the shoes. In fact, a lot of the time, the shoe is the star of the ensemble and women openly admit to shopping for outfits to match their shoes when it’s often considered ‘the norm’ to do the reverse. Case and point: a lot of women buy shoes they’ve fallen in love with even if they have no occasion to wear them for. Fewer women buy a dress without a specific occasion or purpose to wear it for.

So, if shoes are so important, why are they referred to as an accessory rather than being regarded as the main event? Well all this might be about to change as new documentary ‘God Save my Shoes’ blazes a trail through the fashion industry’s perception of where shoes sit in the order of style reckoning.

Written and directed by Julie Benasra, ‘God Save my Shoes’ sees designers, celebrities and experts come together in an attempt to articulate the relationship between women and their shoes. Featuring everyone from designer heavyweights such as Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin to celebrities such as the Black Eyed Peas’ Fergie and Dita Von Teese, the documentary will be launched at Paris Fashion Week this autumn.

You’ll not be surprised to note that the shoes have and always will come first here at Ecco, but we’re glad to see that the rest of the fashion world is catching up.

For us, good quality footwear never goes out of style. Why do women love our shoes? Because our shoes make them feel comfortable and feminine.

View our online collection of Ecco women’s shoes including women’s casual shoes, women’s formal shoes, women’s boots, women’s sandals and – for a limited time only – women’s sale items. With free UK delivery and fuss-free returns, we make it easy for you to put the shoes first every time.

En pointe footwear: find ballet flats at Ecco Shoes

Inspired by recent box office hit ballet films Black Swan and The Adjustment Bureau, fashion wants to dance again.

Fashion designers have been citing dance as a major influence in forthcoming collections and commentators are predicting a glut of ballet-inspired fashion to hit the catwalks and the high streets.

Outside the fashion world, ballet classes have been overwhelmed by enthusiastic newcomers and long-retired ballerinas looking to re-acquaint themselves with their pirouetting past.

If you’re not keen to dust of the tutu just yet, what this fashion craze does mean is that women have a great excuse to indulge a guilty footwear pleasure: the ballet flat.

Ecco Shoes Model

Ecco Shoes Model

 

A feet saver in many situations, the ballet flat is a must-have for your shoe rack – although many women keep a pair in their bags too!

 

With a beautiful flower detail at the toe and available in three colours, the Ecco Shoes Model is a stylish wardrobe staple. Wear them with any outfit for dressed-down chic, with jeans for a cool preppy look or with a tutu if you feel so inclined! The hard-wearing sole and comfortable cushioned insole of the Ecco Shoes Model ballet flat will make you feel like a dancer… minus the leotard.
