Item of the Moment: Hi-Top Sneakers
Autumn is about to come in a few months--which means coat season is nigh! I have been waiting eagerly for autumn because a) my birthday is in autumn, and b) the weather will be a little cooler.
But enough with the weather. Why not start a new season with something sporty yet totally appropriate? Of course, I am talking about having a pair of hi-tops handy. They are not only comfortable to wear (come on, ladies; you are a testament to this), but they also provide the boot effect, i.e. your ankles don't get splashed on when it rains. Furthermore, Marc by Marc Jacobs used it for its Fall collection. You never go wrong with that in mind.
Just stay away from the ubiquitously common Chucks. But if you insist on going Converse, why not try the Weapon? Go for the black-and-white; not only will they be chic but they'll last throughout the seasons.
