Stay chic and stylish this Autumn with Ellibeth
As the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler, we are constantly thinking about how to get the best mileage out of our Autumn/Winter style. How can we spruce up a t-shirt and jeans, or add some flair to our workwear. Practicality has to play a role, or else we would be strolling in to the Your Coffee Break offices bare legged and shivering – and no one wants that on a cold, wet day do they?
We’ve found our sole saviour in Ellibeth, an up and coming brand from Sweden, creating cute and practical booties that are just perfect for current climes. Produced in Italy, the brand promises traditional, high quality and luxury in every pair, something women consider highly important when purchasing winter footwear. What’s more, the brand’s primary focus is on giving back, supporting charity SOS Children’s Villages as part of the company. Stylish Scandi-style and ethical – we’re on board! The brand believes in ‘thoughtfulness, creativity, kindness and good relationships with suppliers and customers’, to ensure their products are of the highest standards through a consistent rotation of customer feedback and supplier communication.
With styles including a classic riding boot, the iconic Chelsea boot and an edgy motorcycle inspired boot, the footwear brand is certainly on point with their take on AW14’s hottest trends. Versatile styles that can be worn with everything from leather leggings to dresses for a sleek and stylish touch to everyday wear. Inspired with both personal style and a gap in the market in mind, the brand combines classic designs with affordable prices to provide a roster of luxury pieces for any occasion. ‘Ellibeth shoes are not ‘one season only’ but they are made to last, both from a fashion perspective as well as durability in wear.’ Ellibeth founder/owner Maria Fristedt told YCB.
Footwear is not an area in which women should have to sacrifice anything, there are no excuses to scrimp and in Eliibeth’s perspective shoes have to look and feel good. ‘It is better to invest in a few pairs of really good shoes that you can wear on numerous occasions rather than buying countless of shoes that only come to use once. The cost might be higher but the ‘price per wear’ will decrease in the end.’ This is one thing in our experience we know to be true, and some time ago we made a promise to always make wise footwear investments.
Out of everywhere, London seems to have to the most volatile temperament when it comes to weather and it can take a toll on women’s footwear choices. For us, the ‘Elisa’ quilt bootie is a must have for those crisp Autumn days, perfect for keeping feet snug and comfortable and still stylish to pair with your everyday wardrobe. Another favourite is the brand’s first ever shoe: the Olivia Bow – a must-have style that is a skinny jean’s best friend in our opinion. The collections are inspired by anything from blogs and magazines to travel and this gives Ellibeth a strong base in line with current trends, yet each piece has a unique twist for a real selling point. The collection comes to life with the help of a talented team and of course, the feedback of the customer.
With a huge variety of styles on offer for AW14, Ellibeth is certainly destined for great things in the future. The perfect style companion for those chilly walks through Hyde Park to bustling Sunday brunches or heading into the office, Ellibeth’s shoes are sure to become a wardrobe staple for any occasion. We’ve been eying up pretty much all of the pieces in the collection and it’s safe to say we’re smitten with the range. Take a cue from Ellibeth and invest in a pair of their cute wellies to kick off the chilly season, before you know it you’ll be coveting the whole AW14 line! There is always something pretty or fabulous that could come from a cloudy autumn day.
