Dress code 2018: personalize your shoes!

[BREAKING NEWS] In 2018, designers excel at creativity to dress our feet. And that gave me a lot of ideas to personalize our shoes!

In addition, I offer a mini to do it yourself (DIY) with tutorial photos! But just before, discover all the trends of next spring to be at the top of your shoes!

Transparency of small steps 

First, here is the spring style that reveals the femininity of our feet: stilettos or derbies with heels like Armani. Our extreme part of the body reveals itself subtly!

And then the spring is sensual in leather pompoms or soft faux fur. Again, almost everything is allowed! It’s fun and stylish, from the shoe to the sneakers! Also, do not hesitate to accessorize your shoes in hype or vintage charms! We all have a designer soul, right?

Buckles on the feet or strapped shoes?

Undoubtedly, a real favorite. I am a stylist and craftsman in buckles and sewing buttons. And I like to diversify their use … So when it comes to transforming the use of a buckle, I always say YES. And frankly, it’s an unstoppable fashion trick. This style is casual chic to the tips of the nails (or toes!)

At the same time, designing a women’s shoe model is not easy. It requires as much technique as excellence in the materials used … for perfect comfort. But here, I crack! A little detail like a jewel sewing button sewn over linen and voila: the shoe is unique! 

Beautiful buttons, pretty stylish feet

So get started! Because it’s really easy to personalize your own shoes. Yes really! A customer brought me her Miu Miu shoes. One of his big leather knots that dressed his shoes is gone. She chose two big vintage sewing buttons to replace them! But why not you?

Once again, it is an easy job of one hour maximum. And a great result! The three pre-requisites?

1. Have a large needle with a sturdy but thin tip to pierce the leather (or a cookie cutter for less than 15 euros)

2. A linen thread also called Chinese thread or else a thick nylon and silk thread that will be very chic and satiny

3. Finally, sew your button with a point without the need of a knot. Only two or three points are enough! A knotless sewing will be just as strong or more. And especially it will be more comfortable to wear (zero gene because no knot on the back of your shoe!)

And if you have a doubt, I will advise you with pleasure!

Haute couture buttons dress code

If we had to tell sewing buttons tales, we would need to praise men as they button up significantly more than the fairer sex! Does this mean there is a dress code for traditional sewing buttons? These illustrations are primarily intended to guide you through the various possibilities in the art of the fashion buttons! And we, BUTTONS PARADISE, we simply adore it!

In the first instance let’s celebrate women who wear haute couture buttons in many ways: original iconic single buttons, fancy buttons or why not love and sensual buttons. Indeed what man has not dreamed of unbuttoning the dress or the top of his beloved girlfriend? To do so, it is not more seductive if your buttons are charming, plump to perfection and soft to touch and thus ultra-feminine!

To better guide us, a woman will have on average:
– From 6 to 12 haute couture buttons on a coat
– From 4 to 13 design buttons on a jacket or cardigan
– From 3 to 8 fashion buttons on trousers, on a skirt or a tunic,
– From 6 to 9 high fashion buttons on a blouse or a top.

Regarding men, the average number of sewing buttons tends to increase:
– From 10 to 21 fashion buttons on a coat
– From 6 to 9 fashion buttons on a jacket
– From 1 to 5 sewing buttons on trousers depending on whether or not the pants has back pockets
– For a shirt: from 6 to 12 mother-of-pearl buttons.
