How To: Style Summer Heels

We are finally in full Summer mode here at BED|STÜ and I can almost feel the sun's blistering heat soaking through the office windows, leaving no one untouched from the wrath of its intensity; I am thanking my lucky stars for air conditioning right about now! Anyway, let's talk style! Everyone at our office, and so many of you, have truly fallen in love with the ONSET, our peep-toe leather heeled sandal that is basically perfect paired with any outfit, year-round! We thought we would channel Pinterest today and pass along a few styling options to wear with this beauty, and let you know we have a BRAND NEW COLOR: Oilbird Lux. Let us know what you think!

ONSET: Black Handwash


In this image, we dressed up ONSET with a long, flowy black dress, ideal for wearing for a night out with the girls, or for an elevated date night. When dressing up a distressed leather bootie, you'll want to balance out the hardness of the shoe with a less constructed, more fluid fabric with a good drape, to create a more juxtaposed look, that balances out the toughness of the shoe with the softness of the dress.

In this image, we styled the same color ONSET with an army green romper, ideal for casual Summer days. Wear this look during the day, shopping around town or to dinner with friends. We paired this outfit with our reversible leather CHARLOTTE tote in Red for an extra pop of color! Don't forget, this army green is still a neutral, so you can pair it with a bright color, the same as you would with a grey or black.

We already know how much everyone loves their denim, so OF COURSE we had to pair ONSET with jeans too! We accentuated our black leather bootie with a light wash, distressed jean, to create a more casual look, and added an oversized striped tee for comfortable, yet effortlessly cool style. We completed the ensemble with our "fringey" leather crossbody, EASTEND in black, because, with an everyday look like this, you'll want an everyday bag; but feel free to pair this outfit with a bright color as well, like our CADENCE crossbody/wallet in Red, for a little more fun! (Also, for a more dressed up version of a jean outfit, pair ONSET with skinny dark wash denim and a flowy blouse for a fashionable, yet comfortable, evening look.)

ONSET: Oilbird

When you're going to a Summer BBQ, whether it be with family or friends (or both), you want to look stylish, but also put-together. Pair your favorite distressed denim shorts with a classic white button up shirt for a contemporary take on a traditional piece. We paired this look with our new ONSET in Oilbird Lux, a beautiful yellow leather with spots of green, pink and blue. With a shoe this bright, you'll want a neutral ensemble, so the shoes are the center of the outfit. Don't forget a hat and sunglasses, it'll be hot out there next to the grill.

ONSET: Smoke Grey

A dress is ideal for the workplace. We complemented this lightweight cotton Summer dress with ONSET in Smoke Grey. Since this grey leather bootie is a neutral color, you could really pair it with an array of colors, but we would stick to the cooler tones because of a slightly blue cast to the finish. Cool colors you may pair with this one could be blue, green, purple, and of course, white and black. Throw your hair up in a bun, add a lightweight cardigan and you're ready for work in no time!

ONSET: Tan Driftwood

Bottomless mimosas, anyone? For this cheerful Summertime look, we paired our Tan Driftwood ONSET with a bright yellow cardigan buttoned all the way up, to be worn as a top, and a clean white skirt. If yellow isn't your color, feel free to grab a sweater, t-shirt or tank in another bright color like blue, purple, pink, or green, your options are endless! Add a leather crossbody, since you'll want to be hands-free for after Brunch shopping, and you're all set for a fun day with the girls!

We hope you enjoyed some of these styling tips for our beloved ONSET bootie! *Don't forget to tag us in your outfit selfies so we can discover your styling tips! :) #bedstu
