July 30, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Shop Her Look: Melanie of “Lace and Combat Boots”

Whenever I need styling tips on how to re-imagine classic pieces with stripes, gingham or plaid, I turn to Crossroads Style Council member Melanie Sutrathada. In fact, she’s such a pro at pairing black with white that she’s this week’s inspiration for Shop Her Look“.


Get Melanie’s classic black and white look with our Grid Print Maxi Dress, $32.50.

Or try another trend at the top of our list for fall trends: gingham. You can look forward to seeing this print in dresses, skirts and even outerwear! Mod Swing Dress in Gingham, $32.50.

For a black and white overcoat like Melanie’s above, go for our Sleeveless Trench in Check, $32.50. Sleeveless trench coats will be huge this season,  and we love them because they offer a fitted silhouette with tons of layering options.

Finally, I think Melanie would agree that we should all dress for summer as long as possible (before the return of the dreaded East Coast winter), and there’s no better way than to keep wearing sandals! Our Racer Stripe Slip-Ons, $32.50,  are made of butter soft leather and feature a modern cut.

If you haven’t already added Melanie’s Lace and Combat Boots to your weekly list of must-read fashion blogs, make sure you start tuning in stat, because this New Yorker has a knack for inspiring her readers in life, style and fashion.
