Although December is the season of giving, it’s also the season to save. If you’re like me, you’re breathing a sigh of relief now that Christmas is over (phew). Dec. 25th has come and gone, but I still have gifts to buy for friends, family, and a few things for myself too.
I’m excited to share a few of my favorite deals with you. Check back tomorrow for more faves for men, women, pets, and kids. These deals won’t last, so strike while the iron is still hot! There is still just under a week of savings for so many stores. Check out some of my favorite items on Instagram and down below (@akcstyle.com).
Who says style has to be
uncomfortable? You wear your favorite
shoes and clothes over, and over again because you feel the most comfortable when
you’re wearing them. So, why not try for
comfort and style next time you’re searching for new shoes? Go for a derby!
If you have a
casual work environment, go for a derby style shoe with a rubber sole. A derby shoe is one of the most timeless, casual
styles you can invest in. Take care of
them properly, and you will have them for a long time, long after the trends
For a more traditional work environment, choose a classic,
plain-toe derby with rubber or leather soles.
Wearing a derby shoe with a leather sole keeps your look classy and
professional. Adding rubber soles to
traditional dress shoes, adds bulk and weight to your shoes, giving you a chunkier
profile. The upside to adding rubber is
the endless level of comfort. You’ll
notice the difference immediately!
On a typical New England winter day, no one will notice if your shoes look a bit chunky. But, they will notice you’re the only one standing on the train platform wearing dress shoes. Having a rubber sole helps your shoes last longer, and keeps you from bringing two pairs of shoes to work in inclement weather. You’ll also stand out and be noticed for your fashionably practical footwear.
What’s a jump boot you
ask? Well think of your average,
tactical, military boot, combined with a classic leather boot. A jump boot is the combo of these two styles
with a twist. Usually form fitting, low
to mid-calf height, and made of leather.
This style of footwear is very broad, but perfect for those of you who
aren’t fans of combat boots.
Without even knowing it, you probably have a jump boot in your closet already! This season, choose to invest in a pair of leather jump boots. Play it safe in black or brown, or go bolder in tan or a suede finish. If you’re really feeling special, treat yourself to all four options and round out your boot collection. Opt for tan if you’re unsure of which color will give you the most versatility.
Wearing a tan jump boot, allows you to make a casual statement with black jeans, or look more put together in a tan or navy pant. Whichever colorway, brand, or style you choose, your investment will not go to waste on a jump boot.
