Who What Wear x Charles David, May Look of the Day

This month our Who What Wear Look Of The Day spotlights Jameela Jamil, a rising London fashion icon, out shopping in a fabulous, yet comfortable, turquoise wedge. 

This newcomer has hit the U.K. and U.S. scene as a television personality/model but is making the biggest mark with her style.  She mixes and matches separates with confidence and a sensibility that is young, fresh and unique.  Here she sports a light floral shirt with a pair of cutoffs and a brimmed hat.  For us, it's the shoe that takes her look from stylish to extraordinary.  Don't you agree?

If you like Jameela's look, check out the Charles David ULLITA wedge sandal.  It comes in your choice of brown and turquoise.  While the brown works well with most of our wardrobe, the latter is our favorite to punch up a Summer outfit for a hot, hot day.

Sneak Peek: Charles David on Nylon TV

Thanks to Nylon Magazine, we're shooting a TV episode today in a local NYC park.  Think Daisy Buchanan/Mia Farrow a la "The Great Gatsby" as inspired by our Spring/Summer campaign.  The segment will air later this month (don't worry, we'll keep you posted on the exact date) but here's a quick behind-the-scenes look at our shoot in progress.  

Get your Charles David shoes polished up! Croquet season is about to begin.

The Grifter

We were flipping through a recent copy of WWD's Footwear News and found a photo of our new Made In Italy bootie, The GRIFTER, coming out this Fall.  Although the weather is just warming up, this gives us something to look forward to next season.  We love the way they look with knee-high stockings and an above-the-knee skirt or shorts.

Walk in Kate's Shoes

Many of us stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to watch the Royal Wedding take place live at Westminster Abbey.  Catherine Middleton tied the knot on April 29th to become "Princess William of Wales" and the "Duchess of Cambridge".  With the ring on her hand and her royal titles bestowed, the world watched as a new global fashion icon was crowned.  Kate stunned millions of onlookers in a sleek Alexander McQueen dress with a V neckline, lace bodice and tulle underlaid skirt.   

Kate's personal style is sophisticated, smart and demure.  Her look is best defined as British Preppy, mixing UK designs with chain-store finds.  We've gathered a few suggestions to replicate Princess Catherine's (footwear) style.  From a classic riding boot such as the RUMBLE, a simple pump such as the POMPADOUR or a casual sandal like the TURBULENT, take a walk in what we've selected as her off-duty shoes.

As Seen In Teen Vogue: Natalie's Eco-Style


It's no secret that Natalie Portman is an eco-conscious dresser.  She'll trade in leather for man-made materials any day.  Not many girls can say that.  According to Kate Young, Natalie's stylist, there's a lot of good, enviro-friendly choices on the market that are just as good if not better than the 'real' thing.  Take, for example, the Charles by Charles David Satin PURE as featured in Teen Vogue.  This shoe is made of ALL vegan material. 

We've mentioned that the Pure is Natalie's go-to shoe on the red carpet.  Now we know why.
